Isolating them is easy as they all fit onto one circuit behind the TV stand. 2. very easily, we don't have to charge phones or laptops unless its an emergency as they will stay charged while there is normal power. WIth your comment on getting an electrician to setup, are there any standalone device which could just service the stated without that as we are not owners of the property?
