Understanding Surge Protection
A surge protector guards your electronic devices against voltage spikes which can cause damage or even render devices useless. These can be caused by various factors such as lightning strikes, power outages, or major electronic appliance turnovers within your home or office network.
Surge protection is measured in joules; the higher the rating, the better the protection. Another important factor is the clamping voltage, which indicates the voltage level that triggers the protective components of the charging station.
