Choosing a Surge Protector to Keep Your Electronics Safe

List: Posted: 12/10/10

When you own high end electronics such as LCD televisions and computers, you want to do everything that you can in order to keep them safe.  These items are quite expensive, and replacing them can cost a great deal of time, effort, and money.  One of the best ways to protect your electronics is through the use of a surge protector.

When looking for a surge protector that can keep your electronics safe, you need to consider what you are plugging into it.  A microwave or refrigerator is typically fine with your run of the mill protector, which has a built in fuse that will shut off power in the event of a power surge.  When it comes to computers and home entertainment systems, however, you may want something more.

For desktop computers, a surge protector with a battery backup can be ideal.  These protectors will give you ten to fifteen minutes of power to save your files and shut your machine down properly after a power surge or outage.  If you have a home entertainment system, you can find a surge protector that offers inputs for not only your television, cable box, and game systems, but for your cable, phone, and HDMI cords.  This can help ensure that a power surge cannot destroy your expensive system.

The right surge protector for you depends on many things, but by taking inventory of what you will be plugging in, you can easily find the right one for you.
