Cable Matters 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector – Item of the Day — 9 Comments

  1. Jack, To paraphrase my favorite pod caster, this thing is “frickin’ awesome”. The nightlight is just bright enough to not trip over the cat but won’t keep you awake. Ordering 5 more in ten min.

    • Yea I really think this one is the best value out there and the overkill on the power light is a bonus. Thanks for supporting us by using TSPAZ

  2. This looks like a great product, but here is my PSA for the day: Most (if not all) affordable surge protectors have a very finite live span. The component which absorbs the spikes (MOV) wears out after so much energy (joule rating), at which point it becomes useless and passes on anything that hits it.

    If you have a surge protector that is many years old, or if you know it took a big spike for some reason, it should be replaced. Especially if it’s protecting mission-critical gear.

    Working at a technology integrator, we’re pretty much guaranteed to take multiple emergency calls after a big storm regarding fried equipment that people thought was protected.
