Should I leave my earthing product plugged into the power point when not in use?

Yes, you can leave your earthing products plugged all the time. They do not use any electricity, only earth.

The power switch can be turned on or off. Either way, no electricity gets into the product. The top two prongs of Better Earthing adapters are non conductive plastic and only the third (earth) pin is metal.

You might like to know that Better Earthing adapter and lead have built-in safety resistors totalling 60,000 Ohms for extra safety in the event of an electrical surge or storm.

In the very rare and theoretical event of lightning striking to the ground nearby, the power surge would need to bypass the building safety surge protectors in order to travel up the building’s earth wire system to reach the safety resistors. Barely a mosquito bite of power could pass through the resistors in the Better Earthing Adapter and Lead.

It is certainly far more convenient to leave your product plugged in. But you can unplug in the event of an electric storm for extra peace of mind.
