What is the difference between a surge protector and power strip?
A surge protector can look much like a power strip, but it adds a true element of protection. It's what stands in the way of a power surge or spike and your laptop. A surge protector actually absorbs this additional current that otherwise might damage or destroy your electronics.
Why can't I plug a power strip into an extension cord?
Never plug extension cords or power strips into one another. This is called “daisy-chaining” and can overload the circuit creating a potential fire hazard.
Is it necessary to have a surge protector?
Yes, using a surge protector is generally a good idea to protect your electronic devices from voltage spikes. Surge protectors help prevent damage to your equipment caused by sudden increases in electrical voltage, which can occur during power surges or lightning strikes.
How much surge protection do I need?
Surge protectors are rated in joules, which represent the amount of energy they can absorb. Higher joule ratings generally offer better protection. For sensitive electronics, consider a surge protector with a joule rating of at least 1000 joules
Do I need surge protector for TV?
Yes, using a surge protector for your TV is a good idea. TVs are often sensitive electronic devices that can be damaged by power surges. A surge protector helps to safeguard your TV and other connected devices from voltage spikes, which can occur due to lightning, power grid fluctuations, or other electrical issues.
