"You can plug in the electronic device down there"

So "là-bas" doesn't also mean below? I thought it was the opposite of haut...

"Below" is more akin to "en bas".

"Là-bas" is over there, down there, up there, in there, out there, right up there, pretty much anywhere you can point at.

Electrical appliance is a synonym of electrical device

In general, an appliance is considerably larger than a device. But in any case, this sentence is about electronic devices (typically even smaller), not electrical devices.
