With the number of gadgets and appliances in our homes steadily going up, surge protectors, also known as spike guards, are becoming increasingly essential. Beyond providing you just a number of additional plugs to use, they also promise to protect your precious devices against any accidental power surges. One of the primary benefits of this is, quite obviously, the safety of your device. However, the benefits go beyond that – they’re effectively what stands between you and a potential fire hazard resulting from an extreme voltage fluctuation reaching a volatile device. Get the right one for your needs by going through the features and specifications. We’ve shortlisted some promising options available on Amazon.

Impro Black Colour 10 Socket + 4 USB Ports Spike Buster 

If the surge protector you’re looking for needs to have ample connectivity options then the Impro Spike Buster offers a lot to look forward to. There are ten power sockets and four USB power ports divided into three layers in a vertical arrangement. This helps you connect a larger number of devices while promising better cable management. In addition to that, each layer comes with its own power switch as well as an LED indicator. This helps you with better control and tracking of the sockets. The switches use silver plated alloy, which promises to be better at corrosion resistance and safety.

Portronics Power BUN

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Portronics Power BUN is the groove designed on its face, which functions as a phone docking station. This enables it to provide a convenient way for you to use your phone while it is plugged into one of its three USB ports for charging. In addition to that, it also has two AC ports that can be used by your laptop, desktop and other appliances. It also comes with a BIS certification that ensures additional safety and reliability for your devices. At 350g, it is quite lightweight which makes it easy to travel with.

Honeywell 8 Out Surge Protector

The Honeywell Surge Protector comes with eight universal sockets that are controlled by one master switch. They are designed to accommodate multiple plugs of different designs without interfering with each other. There’s also a two-metre-long power cord that is BIS certified to ensure safety and protection along with convenience. The surge protector also comes with Automatic Overload protection, which acts nearly instantaneously. This can help protect your devices against sudden surges better. An LED indicator on the body communicates the operational status of the protection system. It can also be used in the mounted form to keep access convenient for a dedicated set of devices.

Belkin Essential Series 8-Socket Surge Protector

The Belkin Essential Series Surge Protector comes with a 700 Joule energy rating, which means it can tolerate a significant amount of power surge. That, combined with a maximum spike current rating of 19000 Amps, helps protect your laptops, computers and other appliances more reliably. There’s grounding in place with three-line protection on all the sockets on the surge protector, which adds another layer of safety. Additionally, it comes with a long heavy-duty cable that can also improve the surge protection that the model offers, while the two-metre length aims to make it convenient to connect devices kept far away from the power source.
