New User...Silly Question

Should I keep my glowforge plugged in at all times? I’ll be using it 4-5 evenings a week but want to ensure I’m doing the right thing when it’s not in use.

I don’t think there is any recommendation to unplug it when not in use. I’d wager that nearly everyone leaves it plugged in.


No reason not to leave it plugged in. Turn it off when you are done for the evening.

Leave it plugged in - it’s got an internal surge protector (which is why they want you to plug it directly into a wall) so unless you regularly have major surges it’ll be just fine

Nothing silly about seeking to understand!


Thanks for the answer deirdrebeth, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread.
