Leech Plug Unplugs Itself When Its Done Charging

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 16, 2010


Did you know that those gadget A/C adapters all continue to consume a little power even when you’re not charging your portable electronics? This clever for a power plug takes care of that problem with a novel approach.

Designed by RISD student Conor Klein, the Outlet Regulator (aka “Leech Plug”) is thusly named because, just like a real leech, this power adapter actually disconnects itself from its host (power source) when it’s sucked up all the juice it needs. By using a timer circuit along with electromechanics, it’s able to detach itself from the wall once fully charged.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy this mesmerizing video clip of the Leech Plug in action.
