Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 3-Outlet Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 540 Joules 2.1 A USB Charger Diagnostic LED:

This is an outlet hub that looks good and provides a sufficient amount of outlets including USB. It screws easily into your existing wallplate for a secure fit. A nice feature is its green LED light that indicates it's connected.

Almost 5-star. A great buy!

By jacob martin

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 3-Outlet Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 540 Joules 2.1 A USB Charger Diagnostic LED:

The only reason I don't rate this 5-star is due to the amp rating of the USB ports. To support fast charger for tablets and phones, it needs to be at least 2.1 amps per USB port.
Other than that one small issue, this is a top of the line product at a great price. It's slim profile allows it to fit virtually anywhere. Additionally, it's high joule rating along with Tripp Lite quality makes it a smart purchase for anywhere you need smart power solutions.

Good product

By J. M.

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 3-Outlet Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 540 Joules 2.1 A USB Charger Diagnostic LED:

Pros:
High protection rating
Slim form factor
Modern design

Cons:
Dual USB ports only have 2.1A, so if tablet and phone are plugged in, charging time slows. I'd like to see minimum 4.2A.

Fix the one con and this is a 5-star product.

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 3-Outlet Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 540 Joules 2.1 A USB Charger Diagnostic LED:

Have this in my computer room primarily to charge my devices but also will provide backup surge protection to other devices.
The original on had something happen that it would not provide the surge protection. I contacted the company and they sent a new one with no questions.
Very happy!

Perfect for household electronics

By Jackjack

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 3-Outlet Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 540 Joules 2.1 A USB Charger Diagnostic LED:

Perfect for notebook computers and other sensitive home electronics. I bought several of these to protect my various devices. They not only protect from severe strikes, but from normal surges every home has. I protect every TV, DVD player, and more with one of these. Tripp-lite is very highly regarded because they make really good quality stuff, so I trust them.

Frequently Asked Questions

A surge protector will protect your electronics by acting as an “electrical sponge” by clamping down on spikes, “soaking them up” and converting the excess energy into heat, thus preventing the spikes from passing through the surge protector into the sensitive electronic devices and damaging them. As with any “sponge” a surge protector has a limited absorption capacity. Once that capacity is reached, the unit is no longer able to protect and must be replaced.
The Grounded or Ground OK LED light is present on select Tripp Lite 120V surge products. The purpose of this indicator light is to confirm that the surge protector is connected to a grounded AC source. If the LED is not lit, then the unit is connected to an AC source that is not grounded. To provide the maximum amount of protection, the Tripp Lite surge protector must be plugged into a grounded AC source.

Here are some reasons why the Grounded or Ground OK LED will not light up:

    -Missing ground wire. (Note: This also includes using a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter.)
    -A severe surge has occurred and the unit absorbed the damage, as designed, to protect connected equipment.
    -The LED is malfunctioning.

Follow these instructions to identify the problem:
1. Remove any equipment still connected to the surge protector.
2. Turn off the surge protector.
3. Check to make sure the circuit breaker is reset.
4. Plug the unit into a working and properly grounded 120V AC power source that provides computer-grade power and is on a different circuit than the one originally used.
5. Toggle the master switch to the On position.

If the Grounded or Ground OK LED does not light up, the unit requires replacement.
Your Tripp Lite surge protector is designed to pass power continuously to the electronic devices plugged into it when used under normal operating conditions as instructed in the owner’s manual.

There are several common reasons why the unit may not pass power:

    -Your unit was hit by a power surge, causing the internal components, as designed, to absorb the damage and protect the connected equipment.
    -The wall outlet to which the unit is connected is not passing power.
    -The surge protector is not fully plugged into an AC source.


Follow these instructions in an attempt to restore normal operation:

1. Remove any equipment still plugged into the unit.
2. Unplug the unit from the AC power source.
3. Check the AC power source by plugging in a different device to verify that the outlet is passing power. If the outlet is working, plug in the surge protector. The surge protector requires a working 120V AC power source that provides computer-grade power.
4. Connect a small device, such as an alarm clock or radio, to the surge protector to test if the unit is passing power.

If you followed these steps and the surge protector is still not passing power, then the unit requires replacement.
