What is a surge protector?

A surge protector is an extension box that expands your wall’s outlet to facilitate you. Although people misunderstand that the surge protector and the power strip are twin sisters. But I clarify (although they awfully look-alike) the differences between the two here. Its greatest advantage is its protection capacity from abrupt power stress.

Why do you choose the power strip with a surge protector?

You want to extend your device’s life duration. Do you not want it? To be honest, every person on this planet wants the safety or security of his gadgets. So you need a power strips with surge protector to make your products safe and secure from power storms.

Which items you can hook into the surge protector

As you know, any items whether it is a digital clock worth $20 or home theater products worth $5,000 are prone to sudden power spikes. These power spikes can force you to junk your theater system or spend a handful amount to repair it. As you know small lighting storms occur in our homes due to vaccume cleaner, motors, refrigerators, and gradually cause serious damage.

Any valuable things you want to save from power spikes can be hooked into the surge protector. Whether it is a computer, desktop, laptop, dishware, microwave, home theater system, digital clock, cosmetic beauty gadgets, and so on. If you’re living in rural areas where plenty of storms occurs, you should have a surge protector for the protection of your product.

How do you choose a good surge protector that meets your needs?

Having surge protection is not enough. Having a reliable surge protector is necessary to overcome the power storm. So before you purchase any surge protector, you should keep in mind the following points. Which points? Stay relax, I’m here to elaborate on these points.

Items you want to hook

It essential that before purchasing a surge protector you should be clear about what you want to hook into it. Surge suppressors are of many types and in different price ranges. You are going to invest some money, so you should be careful about the surge protector you’re buying.

 I recommend you buy two-stage surge protection(saves your t.v, computer, laptop, cell phones,  etc).


Some surge successor provides you a warranty state of the failure to provide safety and security to your gadgets. So before, buying check out their warranty cards.

Voltage absorption capacity

Voltage absorption means before failure how much energy it can absorb. The higher the energy absorption power the better it is. More than 6, 700 joules is better to buy. I recommend the one that has a rate of 2,000 joules.

Clamping voltage

Clamping voltage helps out the surge suppressor to absorb the energy. Consider something below or up to 400 V. Above the 400 is not appropriate in any condition. The lower the better.

Response time

Before buying a surge protector you should figure out whether it has mention response time or not. Always buy one that has response time. The lower the response time the better it is. I recommend 1nanosecond response time or less than 1 nanosecond.

Number of ports

It is commonly misunderstood that surge protector has some 8, 10 ports. Wrong. My favorite one is 11 ports surge protection power strip tower.

Certified and UL seal

It should be certified by the Underwriter’s Laboratory or meets UL 1449(it can absorb the right amount of energy at right time).

Has enough space between outlets

The surge suppressor has enough space between the outlets than power strips. You can easily rotate or move the switches. So buy one that has wider space between the ports.

USB with amps 

Fortunately, surge suppress has a USB facility to ease its users. Now you don’t need to use wall warts. 1A or 2A amp is best to charge your phones quickly.

Have a surge suppressor is not enough, buying it from an authentic source is worthy.

Rest things to consider

If you plug your surge protector into an old or improper wire it won’t protect your gears. Consider buying an affordable electrical outlet tester. This tester shows you if there is any problem with the wire before inserting your costly devices in it. In this case, just call our electrician to amend the misfired outlets.

You can also consider whole house surge protection in your house’s breaker panel. An average homeowner can afford this offer.

Bottom line

Any old surge protector is best while having not at all. It should be your first priority to buy a surge suppressor if you are living in rural or thunderstorm areas(because your A/C, refrigerator, computers are more vulnerable to power spikes). I’m telling it is very necessary for your costly gears to have a surge protector. They are affordable and obviously would safeguard your devices.
