In addition, when choosing the ac plug, you should also choose a suitable plug according to the rated current, rated voltage, and power properties of the electrical appliances you use. Do not overload the rates of plug, otherwise, it will easily cause the plug to heat up and cause a fire. Finally, choose a suitable plug according to the situation of the socket, and do not use violence to change the original shape of the plug pins, otherwise, it is easy to cause poor contact between the plug and the socket and cause the socket and the plug to heat up, which is also a fire hazard.
