I have no idea, sorry! All I know is this device protects the washing machine or what ever you have plugged into it from power surges and spikes.
There is no definitive answer to this. I use these cubes on refrigerators in a country where power cuts are frequent (and surges when the power is restored). Some surges are small enough not to damage unprotected appliances whilst some would blow the circuit if it were not protected. I have a lot of equipment protected by various types of Belkin surge protectors and only once has the surge been enough to blow the protectors whilst successfully protecting the appliances. The fact is that you may not know that there has been a surge, unless you have got unprotected appliances, so you do not know how often you have been protected.
Every time my wall thermostat clicks in,my TV looses sound and sometimes picture for I guess @10 seconds, will this device stop this? 3 Dec 2014
I doubt it. This is a surge protector. What you may need is a voltage stabliser but if that voltage drop is so great on, presumably the ring circuit, it is affecting other devices when something else turns on then there is possibly something dodgy about your home's electrics. However the problem sounds to me much more likely to be electrostatic or electromagnetic interference from the thermostat, particularly if you're using a TV aerial or dish rather than cable.

surely this will depend on the mains voltage in India and how big if any are the surges?
Do the instructions with this device say it's ok to use with an extension lead plugged into it? my masterplug 8 socked is no longer protected. 21 Feb 2015
The instructions that I have do not say anything about not being used with an extension lead plugged into it. I would think that this use is OK so long as the total load on the Belkin SergeCube does not exceed 13 Amps
How many times can the surge cube protect sensitive equiptment? After 1 surge, will the devise still work? 17 Aug 2014
I've have quite a few in different sockets and have yet had none fail. Had master plug ten way upright device that only lasted 12months and it went with a pop. So as far as I know these belkin cubes are very reliable work horses, and at the price well worth a gamble.
will this protect my verve 450 twin if i plug it into the socket and then plug in the phone power line? 26 Jul 2014
Not sure.it didn't for my video light.
