Surge Protector Stories January 30, 2017

expiredTime to secure those outlets w/ Belkin surge protector Gold Box from Amazon, starting under $3.75/ea

Do you plug that $1000 computer/entertainment system directly into your outlet? Me too! That’s dumb because it means your computer and thousands of dollars in electronics are fried if lighting or other surge hits your house.

All it takes is a good surge protector between your equipment and the outlet and today’s the day to grab some because Amazon slashes prices on Belkin’s lineup of surge protectors.

Standouts for me are:

Take special note of the Belkin Rockstar travel surge protector which includes a 3,000mAh battery to power your fast charging USB port after its unplugged or the power goes out. $25.99 shipped (57% off list).

expiredAmazon Gold Box – up to 70% off Belkin Surge Protectors: Travel SurgePlus 3-Outlet w/ Dual USB ports $15, more

Today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day extends a discount of up to 70% on select Belkin Surge Protectors. There are 4 different models included at the onset of this sale, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the sale is ended early due to allocated stocks becoming exhausted. These surge protectors are incredibly popular and rarely receive a meaningful discount.

The highlight of today’s sale is the Belkin Surplus 3-Outlet Mini Travel Charger with 2.1A/10W Dual USB ports for $14.99 Prime shipped. I think everyone should own at least one of these chargers (I own multiple!). Its simple design isn’t difficult to install or ugly to look at. Just plug it into any wall outlet to instantly add 3 surge protected outlets as well as 2 USB ports. The USB ports push 2.1A combined, so it’s ready to charge iPads and other power-hungry gadgets. I use mine to charge everything from a Garmin GPS watch to a JBL Bluetooth speaker and even an iPod shuffle. It’s incredibly convenient being able to have a USB charging port. I even travel with one so I can keep my gadgets protected and charged while away from my office.

I’m not the only one who loves these chargers — it’s rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from nearly 5,000 Amazon reviewers.
