Differences Between Power Strips and Surge Protectors

ECHOGEAR 6 AC Outlets 2 USB Ports Features

Power strips add extra outlets to your space. Surge protectors act as a power strip and protect your electronic devices from power surges. Remember, power strips are not surge protectors and a surge protector is a safety device with power outlets. When needing to protect your appliances or electronic devices from power surges, surge protectors are the best choice. Having your appliances and electronic devices connected to a surge protector will give you a peace of mind during storms. This is especially true when you are away from home on vacation or business trip.

Another huge difference between them is a surge protector will have a joules rating on it. If you don’t see a joules rating on the device it is not a surge protector but a power strip. The joules rating tells you at a glance how much energy it can take before it fails. The higher the joules rating the higher amount of energy it can hold before it fails. When looking for a surge protector, be sure to buy one that has a joule rating sufficient for your home.
