In order to continuously enjoy all of the gadgets that we have, all of them must be fully charged all the time that lead to a tendency of letting those chatgers to be constantly plugged in and are hanging to the walls, which are obviously consumes more electricity and causes fire hazard as well.

Eight plugs are inside the box-like table and each has their own switch. The table has a green chord that indicates reduced energy consumption.
