PVT™ Technology or PVT™ is the proprietary technology of Discovery Club Ltd allowing electrical plugs to be reduced in size in order to save space and improve portability. The technology has recently been applied to the Mu product range in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
It is generally the case that electronic devices steadily decrease in size as technology progresses. However computers and other such devices have decreased in size over time, the electrical plugs that typically provide power have changed little in size over the years. The 3 pin plug used in countries such as the United Kingdom (inter alia) is an example of this. The UK 3 pin plug is roughly 1.75 inches thick at its thickest point from the rear of the plug to the tip of the earth pin (or three times thicker than an iPad 2.0).
PVT™ is currently being utilised by the Mu USB Adapter which is designed to provide a space saving USB charging facility for people on the go. The Mu USB Adapter was launched in February 2012 and is available for sale in the United Kingdom via www.themu.co.uk and various high street retailers.
PVT™ technology can be effectively deployed to most 3 pin style electrical plugs and can therefore be used in over 50 countries.
