Surge protector over power strip

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a power strip and a surge protector? Have you ever questioned how to tell the difference?

It is very tricky to tell between power surge and power strip. They both look alike but the power strip has more power points for use while the surge only protects appliances from the damaging effect of electricity.


The power surge is important when you have a lot of appliances to plug within s particular area, having multiple outlets can help to plug them all in at the same time. this protection is measured in joules


The power strip provides more room for more appliances to be plugged in where there are not enough power sockets available. Power strips usually have several outlets, a circuit breaker, and some sort of on/off switch, which is great for businesses.
