Our world would be incomplete without most of the appliances out there today. There are so numerous appliances out there, like blenders, smoothie machines, coffee makers etc. People take coffee, smoothies regularly because of the presence of those appliances. Asides appliances, things that are equally important are electronic devices. Electronics are essential to everyone, from smartphones to laptops, desktops and other devices.

Power strips are known all around the world as different things like extension blocks, power boards and trailing sockets. They usually contain numerous electrical sockets for plugging electronics. It is mostly block size, but there are variations to the shape, depending on the specific manufacturers. The block is attached to a thick flexible cable which has a mains plug (AC power plug) for connecting to sockets. When connected, the plug pulls current from the sockets into the blocks through the wires, thereby powering connected electronics.

Surge protectors or surge suppressors are devices that help to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. Voltage spikes are fast and shortlived burst of energy in voltage or currents. These spikes are usually lightning strikes, frequent and rapid power outages, tipped circuit breakers and short circuits. Power transitions from large power-draining equipment, Electromagnetic pulses (EMP) and malfunctions from our electrical companies contribute too.

Electricity is super risky and can lead to devastating effects when not treated properly. Since these strips are connected to electricity, there are some safety measures needed when handling. For example, if a surge protector ever becomes hot to the touch, turn off the unit immediately. Do not chain power strips to other power strips or extension cords. Never allow the product to be exposed to a moist environment.

Make sure you do not run too many high energy consuming appliances through a single surge protector at once. Only one power strip should be plugged into a single two-outlet electrical socket. Ensure you do not cover a surge protector with carpet, furniture, or anything that would limit or prevent air circulation.
