From an instruction page to a bladeless fan model:

Plug the fan in and switch on at the wall.

Is there a typo of some sort? What can they mean by "switch on at the wall"?

I know that usually one first plugs in an appliance, and next switches it on. Judging by the picture, the ON/OFF switch is located on the fan's base. Thus it's unclear what they mean by "at the wall".

In the United Kingdom, all electrical outlets have switches on them.
