A power strip is a length of an electrical socket that is attached to a flexible cable that plugs into an electrical receptacle.
Although a power strip helps us to save energy and to connect multiple appliances/ devices into one receptacle, a power strip cannot support high-capacity appliances.
An appliance doesn’t need to be big to require large amounts of power.
What are the appliances that cannot be plugged into a power strip.
- Rice cookers
- Slow cookers
- Washing machines
- Air conditioners
- Microwave ovens
- Coffee makers
- Don’t “daisy chain” or plug another Power strip to a power strip.
For your safety, while It might take a lot of work to do some rearranging of things, it is better to unplug what is hogging/plugged into the wall and to plug the above items into the wall outlet than to plug them into a power strip.
