Australian and New Zealand powerpoints have a third ‘earth’ pin (at the bottom) that is wired to a metal rod or plate buried in the ground. This safety mechanism is called earthing or grounding – it’s there to send excess electricity back into the ground.
Indoor earthing products use the ground wiring for an entirely different reason. Remember that metal rod in the ground – it’s in contact with the earth. Our Better Earthing adapter and lead safely passes free electrons from the earth to your indoor earthing product, then to you. That way you can use the earth’s energy to restore balance to your body while you relax, work or sleep indoors.
Better Earthing Adapter and Lead have built-in safety resistors totalling 60,000 ohms. This protects against the rare (or theoretical) event of a power surge via the earth. If the nearby ground were to be struck with lightening barely a mosquito bite of electricity could pass through these resistors.
For users of other brands of earthing products, please note this adapter plug and lead have been designed for use with Better Earthing products only and are not compatible.
