1.0 out of 5 stars Surge protector? - not..., 16 Jun 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin SurgeCube 1-Way 3-Pin Surge Protection (Electronics)
I purchased three of these (as well as some more expensive ones from another brand) before moving to Africa as I had been warned that power surges were common. Well for the last two years I had lots of power cuts but no noticable surges....until last week. We had a huge power surge due to a faulty transformer which burnt out all three of the Belkin surge protetors as well as the TV, washing machine and microwave that they were connected to. The other brand burnt out also but the appliances connected survived intact. Have learned the hard way that true protection cannot be guaranteed by cheap solutions so would not recommend this product.

Since I want them for Africa as well, it would be great if Jim T would say what the other more expensive brand is please.
