The Problem

Sharp prongs on standard '13amp' type 3 pin plugs can cause no end of scratching and other damage when stored with your portable electronic devices.

If you face the prongs away from the equipment… then they make holes in your carry case!

You just can’t win!

The Solution

Protect your laptop and other precious equipment from all the above with Slimplug.

The world’s first and only folding 3 pin plug that meets all the safety standards.

Slimplug is a space saving power lead with a revolutionary folding pin plug and cable designed for portable electronic equipment that uses the ubiquitous figure of eight (Type C8) connectors. 

This makes Slimplug suitable for most laptops, notebooks, camcorders, PS2, Xbox and all sorts of other devices.

22mm is saved in thickness.


Cheapest on the Internet!

We believe our price is the cheapest on the internet for the Slimplug when you take into account other supplier’s postage and packing charges.


How it works

To Open

Hold plug with the pin side facing down. Pull up the side buttons to release the pins. The pins swing down.  Releasing the side buttons locks them into position.

To Close

Hold plug with the pin side facing upwards. Slide down on side buttons to unlock the pins. They just drop down into their hidden position.



 Plug                                      Suitable for UK and other countries using BS1363

Thickness Open:                   46mm

Thickness Closed:                24mm

Fuse:                                     5 Amp

Cable:                                   1.8 metres

Connector:                            'Figure of 8' Type C8 Connector

Certification:                          BS1363  AS153

Slimplug has been independently tested and certified to meet British Standards by ASTA BEAB, the UK’s leading independent body for electrical testing and product safety approval.

BS 1363 is a British Standard which specifies the most common type of domestic AC power plugs and sockets that are used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Malta, Malaysia, Singapore, 

Final Bonus!

You will know that if you have ever stepped on an upturned 13amp plug it can be painful….. with the Slimplug you can avoid such accidents when it is in a closed position!

These can be used with a 'Cloverleaf' Adapter

See elsewhere on Ebay for where we sell an adaptor which allows this lead to also be used with equipment that requires a Cloverleaf (Type C5) connector but does not require an earth connection.  

Our price for these adapters is the cheapest on Ebay or on the Net when postage and packing charges are taken into account.


This is a brand new unused product from the manufacturer in perfect condition complete with their original instruction insert.  We have however removed their blister packaging.

Inclusion of this PVC packaging (that you would immediately put in the  bin) would take the postage rate from the ‘Large Letter’ category into ‘Package’ rate that costs 71p more.

We have made the assumption that our customers would rather have the saving in cost!
