Slimplug Folding-Pin Plug
Slimplug, a dynamic, young technology company, was founded by design engineer John Gillis to solve the long standing problem of the awkwardness of the British power plug.
Optima worked closely with Slimplug to create the world’s first folding pin plug. Designed with travel in mind, the pins stow away neatly into a luggage pack, without damaging the other contents.
Nearly two years of design, development and testing, Slimplug set a world first as it was granted a product approval license for a folding pin plug meeting BS/EN 1363.
