Reforges

A traditional plug can only be connected in one direction, takes two hands, and is dangerous for children. What if there’s an easier way? Introducing V.O., a magnetic power connector for all electronics. With V.O. and its patented magnetic head, plugging in electronics takes only a snap motion, at any angle you want, and one hand is all you need. Our vision is to reinvent user’s experience connecting devices to electricity around the world. Plugging in electronics should be easy, safe and almost fun.
