Most surge suppressors come in the form of bulky, multi socket units on long trailing flexes. Instead of electrical spaghetti mayhem all I wanted was a small, unobtrusive protector for one item so I was very pleased to discover the SurgeCube. For about a fiver I now have peace of mind for my expensive new £900 fridge freezer and its contents - it's a no brainer!
Surge protectors are a wise precaution for any electrical goods you value or would be inconvenienced losing the use of. Not just the usual computers but freezers, boilers, washing machines and any audio visual equipment could be protected too.
Surges are more common than you might think - not so long a go a whole street locally lost every electrical item plugged in when a faulty transformer on a nearby electricity pole converted them into blackened smouldering rubbish. I seem to remember a fire broke out in one of the houses too. Lightning strikes within a mile can enter your house through incoming services and faulty electronic goods inside your home can also generate spikes that do damage. The use of surge protectors seems a small price to pay for avoiding such trouble.
Just a quick note on the rating of surge protectors in general. You should be aware that the figures quoted are an aggregate! So, when it says this unit can handle 25,000 amps what it really means is that it can cope with up to 12,000 amps on a line to neutral fault and 6,500 amps each on a line to earth or neutral to earth fault. So in the real world the maximum it will cope with is lower and will depend on the nature of the fault. The 861 joule rating is likewise an aggregate. Don't let this put you off - all protectors are quoted in this rather optimistic way and what we have here is ample.
In summary a small, neat and well made surge protector from a major brand at a low price. You can't do better than that.
This 1 way surge cube is designed to plug straight into your mains socket and it has two neon lights that give a comforting glow indicating that you are being protected from electrical surge and that your electrical system is correctly earthed.
I use mine combined with Belkins four socket mains adapter which also has surge protection thus giving double the protection.
If you think im being over cautious then thing again because early last year i actually put the entire system to test during a electrical storm.
Really i should have closed my computer down long before there was any danger of overload but true to form the serge switch on the four way adapter cut in aswell as this excellent Serge Cube.
Belkin also provide a comprehensive insurance against damage to equipment whilst using their products aslong as you can prove their equipment was to blame which is not that easy but when you have seen these products actually do their job of cutting power safely to your equipment then really a claim on their insurance should not be needed.
I have several Belkin products in use in my system and every one of them feels well made and bulit to last.
Their products are neither expensive nor complicated to use and my favorite is definately their extension lead sockets with built in surge protection.
They are beautifully made out of above average quality plastics and depending where you buy them do not cost the earth and used with this clever Serge Cube will give you peace of mind in protecting expensive electrical equipment of all kinds.
When buying a surge protector the key things you should look for are.
1/ Indicator lights - Surge protectors do not last forever, they protect your electrical items from surges and sacrifice themselves in the process. You need to know if and when this has happened especially when connected to a fridge or freezer. This model has 2 lights that indicate that it is powered and the other that it is protected - Thumbs up
2/ Response time - This is how long it takes for the surge protector to detect a surge in electricity, you should not consider anything with more than 1 nanosecond response. This model has a <1 nanoseconds response - Thumbs up
3/ Joule rating - This is the maximum amount of energy the surge protector can absorb, the higher the joule rating, the more energy can be absorbed by the surge protector. 600 for an average household item is acceptable (please check individual needs especially for high end or non consumer products). As noted the 861 rated joules of this product isn't exactly true in all aspects. The true ratings for this product are L-N 385J,
L-E 238J, N-E 238J. For my Fridge & Freezer this is more than ample - Thumbs up
4/ Warranty & financial protection - A lifetime warranty and erm £25k or £35k protection. Belkin site and Amazon description both state £35k protection and yet packaging states £25k. I have reported this discrepancy to Amazon so expect them to clear it up soon enough. Regardless £25k is still genuinely very good, I have a couple of Masterplug 4 and 6 way surge protectors that cost 3 times as much as this and only offer £1000 or £3000 protection.Read more ›
