Get the Right Surge Protector and Power Bar for Your Needs

There’s an easy way to protect your electronic equipment from electrical surges and power outages. Use a surge protector!

Choosing the right surge protector or power bar can be difficult. There are so many to choose from and they all have different features. The first thing you should do is figure out what exactly you need. Do you need a power strip with USB ports? Will it be in an area prone to storms? Would a smart power strip work better for you? Once you figure out what exactly you need, it will be easier to find the perfect product!

Power Strips

A power strip is a device that is plugged into an electrical outlet and then one or more devices are plugged into the power strip. A power bar with USB is a power strip with additional outlets for USB connections. Smart power strips can sense when to turn off unused electronics to save electricity.

Surge Protectors

A surge protector is a device that protects against voltage spikes caused by electric power surges. A power strip is a surge protector with multiple outlets on it, allowing you to plug in multiple devices at once. Sometimes they can have USB ports, which are useful for charging your phone or tablet.

You might also want to consider buying an ethernet surge protector that will help prevent additional damage to your router. Wall-mounted surge protectors are excellent for saving space and reducing clutter since they are connected directly to a wall socket.

It is also important to consider the types of devices you’ll be plugging in. Expensive electronics devices such as computers, refrigerators, and smart TVs should have surge protection.
