The Ten One Stella Plug Lights Up to Avoid Shocks

Despite making use of them all the time, or perhaps because of that, it's easy to underestimate the power that's sitting latent in electrical outlets, and the Ten One Stella plug is explicitly designed to keep people safe from shocks. The power cord has a clever mechanism that automatically lights up when it gets near an outlet, helping people to see an outlet clearly before they try to plug in.

The Ten One Stella plug uses a non-contact voltage sensor to light up when it nears a power outlet. The technology is tuned to electrical flow, sensing it and tripping the light when it's nearby. It's the same technology that electricians use to safely check whether wires are live but smartly applied to a consumer setting.
