Power Strip With Surge Protection is a very nice product. You have to wonder if the people who are burning these out have them overloaded. For example, a single small room space heater… well, I will let Consumer Reports tell you > The electric space heaters tested at Consumer Reports use 1,500 watts to fully power. So with an 1800 watt max outlet strip typical for a 15 amp unit means that you can only plug a limited number of additional things, hopefully drawing very little wattage if you do.

I have been using the slightly cheaper model of this version from Welkin that doesn’t have quite as much in the joules rating, and it has worked flawlessly since Dec 2017.

I am mentioning this because I was put back by the photos of the holes burnt in them. Furthermore, I plug a lot of things into mine and there is never a problem, but of course that is a standard 46″ TV, or my 56″, stereo equipment etc. etc. etc. and it works without a whisper. Additionally, I have a few space heaters in the house for emergencies and usually just plug them directly into the wall on a dedicated circuit. Space heaters are cheap and the threat of a lightning spike is remote, but due to the price it is not a big risk. I’m not an electrician, but that is my two cents.

I just bought two of these for only a couple of dollars more than my other one just like it. It has a few hundred more joules in the rating, like 4 thousand some instead of 3900. Works great. If something goes wrong, I will be back to update my review.
