These 3 devices must remain connected to the electrical network.
1. Inkjet printer
Inkjet printers are designed to run on low power consumption, so they don’t weigh heavily on your electricity bill. If you keep unplugging the printer from the power source, the next time you turn it on, the device assumes that it needs to be reinstalled and rinse the steel nozzles with ink to remove any drying. The problem? The ink empties itself, without you printing much.
Even modern TVs should not be unplugged from the mains. In standby mode, the pixels of the devices are automatically updated in the background. If you unplug the TV every time, you risk damaging the device, which can affect picture quality. Therefore, find out in advance whether you really need to connect your device to a socket with a toggle switch.
You can disconnect these devices
To save electricity and avoid standby mode, you can unplug the following appliances without any problem:
- Washing machine
- drying machine
- DVD Player
- smartphone charging cable
- coffee machine
- game console
To disconnect devices from the mains even more easily, we recommend using power strips with a toggle switch.
