Never use an appliance with a damaged cord. Be sure to use three-pronged electrical devices in three pronged outlets. If three-prong outlets are not available in your home, purchase a three-prong adapter from any hardware store.(切勿使用電線已經損壞的電器。確保有3孔插頭的電器使用3孔插座。若您住處沒有3孔插頭的電源插座,請從任何一家五金行裡購買3孔插頭的轉接頭。)

Give televisions, stereos and computers plenty of air space clearance so they won't overheat.(擺設電視機、音響和電腦時應留有足夠的空間以利散熱,預防過熱。)
To prevent overloading, never plug more than two appliances into an outlet at once or "piggyback" extra appliances on extension cords or wall outlets. Use only outlets designed to handle multiple plugs.(為了避免過負載,切勿同時在1個電源插座上插入2個以上的電器插頭或在延長線或牆壁插座上”累加”額外的電器插頭。呼籲僅使用多插頭專用的電源插座。)
Unplug appliances such as toaster ovens, hair dryers, flat irons and coffee pots when not in use.(對諸如吐司烤箱、吹風機、熨斗和咖啡壺等電器,不用時請將插頭從電源插座上拔掉。)

Check outlets and switch plates to make sure they are not unusually hot to the touch. If they are, immediately unplug the cords from these outlets and do not use the switches. Have a qualified licensed electrician check the wiring as soon as possible.(檢查插座和開關板,確保摸上去並無異常發燙。若有則應立即將電線插頭從該插座上拔下來,不要再使用該開關並儘早請有執照的合格電工檢查電線。)

Special attention should be given to large appliances that use high wattage, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, irons, microwave ovens, dishwashers, and deep fryers. Avoid plugging them into the same outlet or circuit.(對高功率瓦數的大型電器,如空調機、電冰箱、熨斗、微波爐、洗碗機和油炸鍋,需特別注意!避免將他們插入同一個電源插座或回路裡。)

GET WIRED(接上電線)
POWER STRIPS(電源排插座)
Power strips and surge suppressors don't provide more power, just more access to the same limited capacity of the circuit to which it is connected. Not all power strips are surge suppressors. Furthermore, in the event of a large surge or spike, the surge suppressor is a one-time-use protector and will likely have to be replaced. If you have a heavy reliance on power strips, it is an indication that you have too few outlets to serve your needs. Contact a licensed electrician and have additional outlets or circuits installed.(電源排插座與突波抑制器並不能提供更多電力,只是在同樣有限的電容量規格下提供較多接點。並不是所有的電源排插座都有突波抑制器。除此之外,若發生大的突波或尖峰脈衝,突波抑制器是一次性的保護措施,很有可能需要更換。若您需要很多電源排插座,顯示你的電源插座數量太少,無法滿足所需。請聯絡有執照的專業電工來增設電源插座或回路。)
