EU wants one phone plug to rule them all. But we've got a better idea.

Re: Plug cable entry angle

Yes, that IEC 60906-1 plug/socket was exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of.

It it was fused, it would seem pretty much ideal.

(Straight cables are a definite plus for me in two ways:

1. Not a caltrop.

2. If you trip over a power cable and it yanks the plug out, that means you had a power cable in a stupid place, acting as a trip hazard. A right-angled plug is a hack, rather than a proper solution to that problem.)
