About Surge Protectors
Electronics have a power supply and it takes incoming wall current 110 volts. The surge protector then filters it for noise, and converts it into whatever the device needs. This should be enough to protect the appliance. Phone and cable lines spike as well. There are surge protectors that have connectors that help to prevent the spikes from wires such as phone and cable lines.
Surge Protector Warranty
Some surge protectors offer a warranty (up to a certain amount) on the gear connected to the protector. For example, in the US, one Belkin model has a $300,000 Connected Equipment Warranty, and states: “If your electronic equipment is damaged by a surge, spike, or lightning strike while properly connected to this power strip, we will repair or replace it, up to $300,000.”
You’ll probably never need it, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have it. Belkin has similar warranties in effect for other products, but they vary by region.
portable power strip
a portable power strip might prevent marital friction, and/or invoke bliss from travel companions. Most hotels and hostels have few accessible outlets, yet everyone has multiple devices that need recharging. Most portable power strips add two to three additional outlets, plus offer direct USB charging
Surge protectors don’t operate instantaneously; a slight delay exists. The longer the response time, the longer the connected equipment will be exposed to the surge. However, surges don’t happen instantly either. Surges usually take around a few microseconds to reach their peak voltage, and a surge protector with a nanosecond response time would kick in fast enough to suppress the most damaging portion of the spike.
Therefore, response time under standard testing is not a useful measure of a surge protector’s ability when comparing MOV devices. All MOVs have response times measured in nanoseconds, while test waveforms usually used to design and calibrate surge protectors are all based on modeled waveforms of surges measured in microseconds. As a result, MOV-based protectors have no trouble producing impressive response-time specs.
Slower-responding technologies (notably, GDTs) may have difficulty protecting against fast spikes. Therefore, good designs incorporating slower but otherwise useful technologies usually combine them with faster-acting components, to provide more comprehensive protection.
