What is a power strip surge protector used for?

A power strip surge protector is a device that provides multiple outlets to plug in various electronic devices directly or via USB-C adapters, while being equipped with built-in surge protection functions. It provides power to your various devices simultaneously and, when a power surge happens, prevents damage to your electronics by diverting the excess energy away from them.

Is a surge protector power strip worth it?

Yes, a surge protector power strip is generally worth it for many benefits:

Protection against power surges: By diverting excess voltage caused by power surges away from your devices. They help prevent damage to your electronics, potentially saving you from costly repairs or replacements.

Multiple outlets: Power strips with surge protection provide multiple outlets, allowing you to connect and power multiple devices from a single wall socket. For example, Anker 727 Charging Station has 6 ports and can charge 4 devices simultaneously without the need for multiple individual adapters.

Safety: Surge protectors include safety features like circuit breakers that can trip in the event of overloading or short circuits, reducing the risk of fires and electrical accidents.

What should you never plug into a surge protector power strip?

You should never plug high-power and large appliances into the power strip, as they can overload the surge protector, rendering it ineffective or even causing a fire hazard. These include portable heaters, refrigerators, washing machines and so on. These appliances should only be plugged into a dedicated wall outlet to ensure safety.

Do surge protectors use electricity when nothing is plugged in?

No, surge protectors do not consume electricity when nothing is plugged into them. Surge protectors only activate and start drawing power when devices are plugged into their outlets and actively drawing electricity. When there are no devices connected, surge protectors remain idle and do not consume any power, making them energy-efficient and cost-effective to use.

When should a surge protector power strip be used?

A surge protector power strip should be used whenever you want to protect your electronic devices, especially for the following two cases:

Charging sensitive devices: Use surge protectors for sensitive and valuable electronics, such as smartphones, laptops, Thunderbolt docking stations, etc, to protect them from voltage spikes and power surges.

Simultaneous power supply: If you want to power up multiple devices but find the number of wall outlets insufficient, you can use a surge protector power strip for simultaneous power.
