China, like almost everything else.
No it isn’t a thunder arrestor, Lol its a surge arrestor. It protects your tv or whatever you have plugged into it against an electrical surge like a lightning can cause an electrical surge.
yes and I have printed little adapters that work great if you have 3d printer https://tinkercad.com/things/8im79pELyog
No, this is a common misdirection. The say "conforms with UL xxx", but it is Certified by Intertek, not UL. To quote George Carlin: "real chocolaty goodness, means no f******g chocolate!".
I do not think it is weather proof. You could use in covered outside areas if you must.
A joule is a measure of power equivelant to a watt second. The joule terminology is normaly used for transient power ( non repeating or short time duration) and not for continuous power measurements like the watt.
Wire is 6ft… Plus about 1ft for the box
Yes, but it won’t be "Protected" from any Electrical Surges.
I don’t believe so. I had mine tucked away in the space under a dresser and had no issues.
you can’t plug a 110 power strip into a 220 outlet
Yes it is a plug 6. Outlet so plug away.
It handles my microwave, crockpot and google home mini all together so I would think you would be fine with a hand mixer.
That’s a good question, but I don’t recall ever turning this power strip back on.
Don’t have a treadmill, so don’t know what it needs. The surge protector meets my needs for a printer, 2 hot curlers, a lamp and a clock radio. Don’t know if this helps.
The cord length is 6 feet.
Info About Amazon Basics 6-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip, 6-Foot Long Cord, 790 Joule – Black (Reviews From Amazon)
I’ve been using a product just like this one in my office area for about a year, it was old and looking rough, so I decided to upgrade. These outlet surge protectors are kind of pricey, so that being said I figured Amazon would be my best best to find the cheapest deal for a quality product… Needless to say, I made the right choice purchasing this item. I have to admit, I was extremely hesitant due to many reviews showing pictures of this product being a fire hazard. In the end, buying any outlet surge protector you have to realize that there is always that risk of the product starting a fire. In addition, many people don’t realize that even if this product was to catch fire, the product itself is rarely the cause of the fire, but instead a faulty wiring job within your home. That being said, if you are weary of buying this product, and decide to go with a different product, that one is most likely going to ignite the same as this product, because its not the products doing, but the doing of poor electrical wiring within the walls of your home. In other words being worried about this product being a potential hazard shouldn’t keep you from purchasing it, because this product is very high quality, durable, has a decent appearance, gets the job done, and of course is priced well. I’m satisfied with my purchase of this product and would purchase it again.
Happy to find this extra long 6-foot cord. A 3-foot cord wasn’t long enough for the two places in my home where all the equipment is plugged in. Before the electric cords were pulled so tight they barely made it. Great idea for computer and media areas that do not have an outlet right near your equipment.
After having it for lest than 2 month it almost set my house on fire. It kep tripping itself off like it was overloaded. I had a small electric heater, a lamp with an LED light bulb and a WiFi modem plugged in.
I kep resetting it. Tonight it would not reset. When I unplugged it, both prongs that plug into the socket are burned.
The remaining of this review was when I first bought it.
Am using it for surge protection for my electric heater and wifi modem. It is well made, simple to use, nice thick cord. I feel protected. I also plugged in a lamp and still have three unused plugs to go.
It’s a power strip and surge protector. I can attest that the power strip aspect works perfectly. As for the surge protection, I have not had an occasion where the strip’s surge protection was needed. Given the 790 joule rating, which is pretty normal for this size strip, I do not have much concern about the surge protection not working. That said, I would not plug any high end electronic equipment into this strip. I would instead purchase something from a well known brand that has a surge warranty and plenty of examples of the surge protection working in the field.
Overall, this is a cheap and effective power strip with some surge protection built in. Please let me know if you found this review helpful.
The quality is good and it looks exactly like on the product photos. It came in working order and I am using it to plug in my PC with a 650 Watt power supply, my Macbook pro 13", and my printer. The Warranty PDF says that this comes with a $10,000 warranty in the case where a surge kills your electronics plugged into this surge protector. I have yet to use it and I hope that I never do so I can’t review this part.
If you are wanting to protect high wattage devices like computers then I recommend that you get this one rather than the 200 Joule version because it can handle much larger surges and it lasts longer. Every surge that it protects your devices from does degrade it so having a higher joule rating is preferable.
If anything changes in the future I will update my review. But as of now everything is as expected.
The media could not be loaded. Product works great, plugged in all my home office electronics with ease. The power switch allows me to turn the strip off when needed to save energy. I bought 2 more for other rooms.
There are 5 plugs, with the 6th plug further down just in case you have a machine that has a really bulky cord outlet, it can be plugged into this. I got this as prevention for a possible future power surge, so none of my devices get ruined. Haven’t had a power surge so far, so i can’t say if this cord will save your devices, but I got this about a year ago and it still works perfectly. I will update if we get another power surge.
We recently purchased a new television set from a local store (to avoid the extra shipping charges if ordered on-line). The salesperson recommended a new surge protector that he said they sold for $20-$30. I said, no thanks, and checked out my friendly Amazon store once I arrived at home. Ten bucks later and I have one arriving at my doorstep in a day or two. Joule rating is great (I looked into what that meant) and 6′ is plenty of length on the cord. And you can’t go wrong with black. Great, small cost investment to protect a larger ticket item. Get one or two for stuff you need to plug in – television, computers, lamps, printer. Great for stuff you use on your desk.
I never thought I’d be writing a review for a surge protector of all things, but here we are.
I bought this surge protector really just for the extra outlets. I figured my computer is worth the $8 investment and I might as well get an outlet strip with good reviews.
Well. Turns out I lucked out, because not even a month later my apartment had a power surge. I know this because I had all of my computer cables plugged into the surge protector. All, except one. The chunky plug for my router took up too much space on the outlet strip, so I figured I’d plug it directly into the wall. Who even needs protection from surges, anyway? Me apparently, that’s who.
Cut to me on my computer, minding my own business when I heard a loud clap of thunder, a CRACK! and my internet died. The router is still working because I’m getting WiFi on my phone. Strange. I checked the Ethernet cable that connects my computer to the router – the Ethernet port on my computer was fried. Yup, the -only- thing not protected by that power strip died a horrible death.
In conclusion, this thing works.
This power strip unit is a well built higher current power strip being well made, durable and robust. I have been testing and using mine for a while now, and I like it so much that I am getting some more. It is made of plastic, and I initially wished it was metal cased. But it appears to be a sturdy, high strength plastic and has proven to be a quality power strip unit. The only adder I wish the manufacturer would provide is a drill template for the unit’s bottom located integrated mounting bracket. But making a template for this unit is sufficiently simple, so the suggestion is a very minor one.
