Eco-Friendly Electrical Outlet Prevents Wasting Money on Vampire Power

Eco-Friendly Outlet Banishes Power Vampires For Good

Vampire power month may be over (how appropriate that it was in October, no?), but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop trying to find ways to reduce our electric bills! We are living in a digital world, which means nearly everything needs to be juiced up to work. I've already got my laptop working overtime at the office and at home, so you can imagine that I'm a pretty powerful energy vampire on my own. But I wouldn't be if I had this outlet.

A concept design I found while cruising Yanko, the Switch outlet allows you to keep your appliances plugged in (no more unplugging your power strip), but with a simple rotation, it cuts off all power to your gadgets, so you aren't draining electricity when it's not needed. Way to be eco-friendly and efficient! Power vampires, be gone.

Yes in America you only have one outlet max per room that works with a switch. All others would need you to unplug them or use something like this... Now to risking sounding like a total idiot, how does this work? This only shows 2 prongs and round plug ins. The only round prongs that I have is a 3 prong with one straight. Is there an adapter, or are you unable to use this here, or what am I missing?
