English term or phrase:hard switch
Turning a charger off completely – so that is uses zero watts - can be only done using a hard switch. For safety reasons, we would have to put this switch on the charger block itself (the bit that plugs into the wall) not on the cable. If, instead of a hard switch, we were to use an electrical switch there would always be some component connected to mains.
