This SurgeStrip™ provides basic protection in a white, hard-plastic casing sure to blend well with a number of gaming and peripheral devices. It keeps your entry-level computer and peripherals protected from power surges, spikes, and lightning strikes. The unit provides six protected AC sockets.Please note: The protective components inside surge protectors absorb over-voltage spikes to protect your connected devices which means they will eventually wear out. Replace them every 3 years or immediately after any over-voltage spike event such as a thunderstorm or power outage because surge protectors degrade faster if they are exposed to high intensity events. Periodically check the surge protector enclosure and cable for signs of wear or heat distress. Replace an expired surge protector with a new one at the end of its useful life.
