Why do we have to choose a good socket?

Because the function of the socket is to connect the power source to the electrical equipment using a plug, and the plug is sometimes plugged in and replaced, So, if the socket that we used has a bad quality, it will loose or break quickly, What are the consequences if the socket is used loosely?

It is important that we know that every electrical connection must be in a good condition and properly connected, bad connections, loose or not resistant to vibration will result in electrical connection failure.

If the electrical connection fails, it can result in a power source being cut off and causing the electrical equipment not to turn on, Even more dangerous, if the electricity connection is loose, sometimes connected and disconnected will produce excessive heat and even emit sparks from electricity, finally can cause the socket or plug to be burned, So, it is very necessary for us to choose the ridght socket that has good quality, strong, and safe.
