I am sure you know that the Anderson Household is not a small one. With that being noted there are many cords throughout of home and very few outlets. This causes many problems for us and we are always looking for good alternatives to bulky power strips. I recently received a PowerSquid Surge Protector to review with my family.
The PowerSquid Surge Protector and Power Conditioner we received provides 1080 joules of surge protection to your electronics. I do not know about you but we have quite a bit of money put into the electronics in our home and we can not afford to replace them all if something happened to them. The PowerSquid can accommodate up to 5 bulky transformer plugs with ease, while providing flexibility that you do not get from a normal surge protector.
The PowerSquid features a 6' long heavy duty grounded power cord. A normal surge protector will continue conducting power even after its joule rating has been reached leaving your connected equipment unprotected. The PowerSquid will stop conducting power once its max joules have been reached, making sure your connected equipment is not exposed to harmful surges.
The PowerSquid also has a noise reduction filter that reduces line static caused by "dirty" power. Line noise and electrical static can show up as snow in your picture or as crackling in your audio. I am not sure about you but I would prefer to have my audio to be as crisp and clear and sound like I was at a theater then like I am trying to watch in the middle of a wind storm.
You can pick up one of the Accell PowerSquid Surge Protector Power Strip on Amazon!
