This is the perfect surge protector for large appliances with "typical" plugs--I have my fridge and stove each plugged into one. I also keep one in my laptop bag--a small price to help protect an expensive Apple Powerbook!

    Originally used with HDTV in guest room. When I had to add a cable box I swapped this with its 3 outlet sibling I was using for a laptop. This also works well with the laptop. It provides great protection and is very portable - easy to take along with the laptop.

    Comments about Tripp Lite SpikeCube Series 1-Outlet Personal Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 600 Joules 2 Dignostic LEDs:

    I use several of these compact, single use surge proctor around my home. When I 1st moved to Central FL, lighting capital I had electrical surges in the past that have destroyed my control panels of the garage opener and the irrigation system. The repair people told me that my whole house surge proctor supplied my my electric is great for large appliances like the range, water heater and air conditioner but did noting for the basic plugged in appliance. I purchased several of these units and have not had a single failure since adding them in over 3 years ago. I have also purchased the 2 outlet units and use them throughout my home!

    Ideal for protecting a modern treadmill

    By CasualSurveyor

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Tripp Lite SpikeCube Series 1-Outlet Personal Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 600 Joules 2 Dignostic LEDs:

    I bought this to protect the sensitive electronics in a treadmill, which can get fried by lighting and surges. The idea device will pass enough power for the motor and will occupy little space on the wall, which describes this device perfectly.

    The LEDs indicate that protection is available (I assume the protection LED goes out if the device absorbs a hit). I was a little confused because the "Grounded" LED came on as a red color. The packaging offers no information about the color/meaning of this light. Red usually means "not good". I found the product manual online and a red light means the ground is good. No light means no ground. I think both lights should be green and the included documentation needs improvement. But it is a good device and seems to be unique in this category.

    Too big

    By dj01

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Tripp Lite SpikeCube Series 1-Outlet Personal Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 600 Joules 2 Dignostic LEDs:

    I have many spikecubes. I assume they are protecting my equipment as I have had no problems with surge damage.

    The only complaint is that the current model is large enough that it blocks the second outlet on a 2 outlet wall plate. I have an earlier model, which is actually cube-shaped, which does not block the other outlet.

    Saves Me Money

    By Mike

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Tripp Lite SpikeCube Series 1-Outlet Personal Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 600 Joules 2 Dignostic LEDs:

    I purchased the Spikecube after lightning took out my garage door opener for the second time. The power outlet is on the ceiling and the standard spike strip just did not work. The cube is the best choice for the job. It's been several years now and through all the thunder storms I have had no problems since. Its a great product.

    Small but effective

    By Marinewife

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Tripp Lite SpikeCube Series 1-Outlet Personal Surge Protector Direct Plug-In 600 Joules 2 Dignostic LEDs:

    I have a few of these and they are great for providing protection for small appliances, iPod chargers, coffee pots and lots more! If you have something to plug in, use one of these to safeguard them from power spikes. Living in Florida where we have lots of thunderstorms that pop up, these are great protection from power spikes.

    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.
    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.
