Dorm Living Tip: Avoid Circuit Overloads...

One Plug Appliance
Available at


Avoid circuit overloads in your dorm room... DO NOT plug high wattage appliances such as a blow dryer, iron, flat iron, or power strip into the same outlet as your dorm microwave refrigerator freezer combo appliance, even if you have an appliance that is manufactured to work on a standard 15 Amp Circuit.

It's best not to use the second plug at all. However, if you must use the second plug... use it only for low wattage electronics such as an alarm clock or small desk lamp. Your university housing office will appreciate it and everyone will be a little safer!

Live Dorm Smart!
