Your Guide To Buying a Surge Protector

By Yehudah Posnick

    A surge protector can look like a typical wall outlet or power strip—it attaches to the wall current, and can give you a number of additional outlets. But it’s more sophisticated than that. It is designed to protect sensitive electronics from sudden spikes, pulses or drops in electricity. It will either divert excess voltage away from your computer or other device, or it can simply block the current once it exceeds a certain predefined limit. A surge protector will contain components whose resistance with the voltage--so if the voltage suddenly rises due to a lightning strike, it will keep the voltage of your equipment at the previous level. And if the electricity suddenly gets cut off, it can also protect your equipment from the sudden change in voltage.

     

    We've put together this work light buyer's guide to help you select the best surge protector that answers to your needs. It'll help you:

     
    • Choose the right type of surge protector,

    • See useful tips about that type of surge protector,    

    • Read reviews of different brands of surge protector, and what customers are saying,

    • Select the right brand of surge protector, and

    • Compare prices and find the best deals.

    • Single outlet: These will fit in a wall outlet and provide protection for a single device. Tripp Lite's Spikecube and Belkin's Conserve Energy Saving Outlet are both single-outlet protectors.

    • Travel surge protectors: These will be small devices that you can take with you when traveling. You can carry them along with you in your laptop bag. They will come in handy if you’re in a hotel room with a limited number of outlets.

    • Power strip-style: These offer a number of outlets, and can have other features, such as allowing you to recharge USB devices as well.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Indicator light: A surge protector should have an indicator light that goes on when you plug it in--only that way will you know that it’s functioning.

    • Other Functions: There are surge protectors that have a slot to recharge your tablet or cell phone. They also allow you to recharge other USB devices.

    • Easy to use outlets: The outlets on a surge protector should be adequately spaced, so that it is easy to plug in and unplug other devices.

    • Conserve energy: The Belkin Energy Saving Outlet also has an auto-shutoff feature, so as to shut down when the connected device is not in use.

    • Let-through voltage: This is also known as “clamping voltage”. This is the voltage limit above which the surge protector will start diverting     power. If you have 120V of wall current, you'll have surge protectors whose clamping voltage is 330 V, 400 V, or 500 V.

    • Life expectancy of the device: A surge protector’s ability is weakened every time it experiences a power surge. A few large surges, or many small surges, will reduce the device’s ability to protect your electronics. Having a surge protector with a low let-through voltage may protect your devices well, but being so sensitive to react to every power surge may shorten its overall lifetime.

    • Joules rating: Joules are a unit of energy. The Joules rating of a surge     protector tells you how much energy the device can absorb in any one     power surge. A lower number Joules rating may actually have a longer life expectancy, because it diverts electricity more successfully.

    • Reaction time: The response time of a surge protector is the amount of time that it takes for it to react to a drastic change in voltage, before it influences your devices. Surge protectors usually respond within billionths of a second, or nanoseconds--that’s usually fast enough to prevent any damage.

    • Power cord length: The length of the power cord will indicate how far you can keep your devices from the outlet. You can get surge protectors that have a 12-foot power cord.

    Belkin was founded in 1983 in Playa Vista, California, by Chet Pipkin, as a computer cable company.
