Electrical hazards are always catastrophic whenever it happens such as electrical shock, arc flash, explosion, and fire. Surge protectors protect our devices and appliances from getting damaged by electricity.
Using a surge protector one has to follow certain rules to properly use the surge and safeguard your appliances, rules as:
- Allows placing your surge in an open or visible place so that you can monitor the indicator on the surge in case of any fault.
- Count the ports on the surge, when buying make sure you get the one with a USD fast-charging port.
- Buy a certified surge protector they ensure the protection of your appliances and also check for warranties.
- Make sure that when buying a surge, you look out for the joules on the surge protector. The higher the joules on a protector the more protection is assured.
- Power surges should not be overloaded; every surge has its standards wattage that determines the types of appliances to be plugged into it.
- Make sure you differentiate a power surge from a power strip. Don’t buy the other in place of the other.
- Keep surges in very dry surfaces to avoid dampness getting into it and causing shock.
- Don’t plug multiple surges in a chain to gain more surge length or ports (daisy-chain). This affects the surge protector and increases the risk of disaster.
