Pro Multiple outlets for big power plugs
Along the sides are six spread out outlets which ensure that enough space is available for bulky power plugs. And in the middle, there are six close outlets which keeps the size of the panel compact while still being a twelve outlet surge protector.
Pro Protects against children
Electrical outlets are dangerous, especially for children who might not understand how severe is the danger. To make it more safe against children, it has safety covers on every outlet.
Con High clamping voltage
The clamping voltage of 500V is considered rather high. The clamping voltage is an indicator when the surge protector will start to do its job and prevent any excess energy from reaching the plugged-in devices. A lower clamping voltage will, generally, imply that it has better protection.
Con The warranty claim is not being honored
Belkin is known for not delivering on their warranty claims. They promise to cover the price of broken electronics that have been damaged by voltage spikes while being connected to the surge protector. Many report that they simply choose not to resolve such requests.
