Thread: Why Surge Protection is a Must have investment & what do you use

  1. #1

    Default Why Surge Protection is a Must have investment & what do you use

    In Bangladesh Transformer burst is most common thing ,so forget about rare lighting strike ,as your pc & every other gadget can get fried in any good weather day. Most common Belkin socket in Bangladesh are MOV based suppression which take the hit & degrade in performance with each hit .So Maybe after one major strike of high voltage your surge protection won't work or won't protect your pc anymore .So only thing i found on Net is Surgex series which use MOV different way so they don't destroy the MOV instead they some how divert the current instead of absorbing it .So i was thinking if in Bangladesh any good company made these product in cheap price as these surgex are nearly $300 price point .So Do you know any other surge terminator/killer product not the suppressor(suppresor - which most probably destroy the protector device along with the surge ).As after using multiple surge protection my 2, 4gb ram died ,now i m thinking what will be next

    Minnitt bhai I'm kind of worried about the seasons coming ahead. My parents took my Belkin multiplug to power the TV and other stuff, and I'm still using my old multiplug, probably 8-9years old by now.

    I don't have any UPS, I get backup from my IPS and plugged directly to my mains.

    IF you read what i wrote then your belkin most probably already fried inside.I m also using belkin & my 2 4gb ram fried in a spike & i also use heavy duty UPS .There are some high priced power strip where there is indicators which say when is the time to throw that device away .
