Surge Protectors

Surge Protectors


A surge protector is an appliance or device designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. A surge protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold.

The typical things end users look for are the type of plugs (flat or not), number of outlets, length of cord, and the amount of surge protection (the higher the number, the better) measured in Joules.
