It’s that time of year when we seem to start getting more and more thunderstorms. If you’re one of the many people that runs their computers, whether it be a laptop or a desktop, without a surge protector, you probably get a little nervous every time the forecast calls for lightning. With a surge protector, you can stop worrying. You can buy a surge protector with just one outlet or up to 6 or 7 or 8 outlets. Certain ones are even color coded so you can easily determine which plug goes to which piece of electronics. Another neat feature that certain surge protectors also have is the outlet for protecting phone and fax lines. They are well worth the buy. Click the links below to view various surge protectors from Small Dog Electronics:

Kensington SmartSockets 6 Outlet Surge Protector w/ Phone

Kensington Guardian 7 Outlet Surge Protector

Unfortunately, the 8 outlet surge protector by Kensington doesn’t yet have it’s description up on our website, but it also has color coded plugs with tags to label the cords, as well as phone line protection.

Another thing to think about that goes along with power outages is a UPS system. UPS, Uninterruptable Power Supply, provides backup battery power for your computer so you have time after the power goes out to save what you were working on and quit so that data is not lost.

An example of a UPS is the Tripp Lite BC Pro 1050 UPS
