Surge Suppressor Outlet Strip Has Nice Features

By Glitches

from West Melbourne, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 8-Outlet Home Computer Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 1080 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

This Surge Suppressor Outlet Strip has the power cord exit the rear while the On / Off Switch is located in the front, which makes it ideal for being located in a multimedia cabinet. With the cord located at the rear the cord can exit the cabinet with less than six inches of the cord inside the cabinet. That means less clutter of wiring. With the On / Off switch in the front, it makes it easy to reach in the cabinet to turn on your multimedia system. The only thing I found peculiar was that in the picture on the box the middle LED is labeled "Fault", but on the power strip I received it is labeled "Grounded". Since the LED is Red in color, it make sense that it shouldn't be lit with a properly wired outlet, and that is the case, but to rename the LED "Grounded" is a bit confusing, because a properly grounded outlet strip would be better represented by a Green LED which stays on. I contacted the manufacturer about the LED and they confirmed that the RED LED should be off, and that it still represents a fault wien lit even if the LED is not actually labeled "Fault" anymore.

Great and unusual product

Comments about Tripp Lite Protect It! 8-Outlet Home Computer Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 1080 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

This (and the apparently identical SUPER8) and the 6-outlet SPIKESTIK are the only outlet strips on the market where the cord comes in at the opposite end from the power switch.

You don't have to reach over all the cords to reach the switch! Very convenient.

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.
