4320J is pretty high but I'd rather the flexibility of two half sized surge protectors instead of one huge one.


Princess Auto product #8853517 is actually a 2000J Philips brand 8 outlet surge protector for $20 but regularly on for $15. I'm not sure why they took the photo down, it used to have one.

I've got 4 of those in my home now serving me well

LOL! I don’t need 12 outlets for one TV.... For the limited number of outlet on the wall, 12 outlets allow me to connect to Apple TV, Network box, old style HiFi, speakers, a karaoke machine and floor lights.... the higher joules mean it will survive more lightning strikes before it becomes useless. My old one get fried and only pass thru power, no more surge protection. This is a good replacement with a decent price. I have to admit the look is boring and yikes, but it is tugged away and will protect my $1500 TV for quite some years.

At first I thought you're right, no one needs that many.

then I remembered that I have a power strip plugged into a power strip so I started counting
TV, PS3, PS4, PSVR, 360, Switch dock, XBSX, AV receiver, Apple TV, NVIDIA Shield, cable box.
The second wall outlet has its own power strip that's more front facing and transient so it contains like fast charge USB-C charger, whenever I need to plug in the VHS ( really should digitize some of those) for my niece and nephew for example or if your craving a weekend with N64 or gamecube etc. and a few other random open ports because sometimes you need one.
but maybe just maybe my entertainment center is a little bit more full than the average thanks to my gaming addiction.


honestly I find the biggest problem with these power strips or most power strips in general is that wall warts and the like often are too wide or long and block neighbouring outlets.

Do all surge protectors do not cut off the power if it's too much or not working?
How do we know its just passing electricity through with no protection?
The electronics are working and passing through but the surge protector light or protect light is not o

I’m thinking this is similar to the Wirecutter’s pick for best surge protector (TLP1208TELTV) with the addition of USB ports?

Yeah, I was just poking some fun. I have the same issue and have connected these devices to an actual UPS instead of a surge protector but having a surge protector is better than having absolutely nothing at all protecting your expensive electronics.

I will buy this to mount on the underside of my standing desk for better cable management and also lessen the strain on the length of the cords given that this surge protector has an 8 foot cord.

Glad you were able to get a chuckle. I had my flame retardant suit on just in case. I went ahead and bought one. Thanks for the post.

This unit has protection for telephone and coaxial.

If the phone line is coming out from the fibre ONT (optical network terminal), is there any benefit plugging the phone line into this?

Clearly they're defective, they aren't protecting against price surges!

...I'll let myself out.

Something must be going on with this brand. I just got an e-mail from camel regarding Tripp Lite price drops on Amazon.

Please never, ever, ever plug a powerbar into another .... specially with high power items. Even an extension cord with a powerbar can be a big issue.
