Nice surge protector.
Reviewed in the United States on July 27, 2018
So far so good with this surge protector. Like many reviewers on here, I also had some difficulty plugging my appliances into it. But with firm pressure they did go in. From a comment left by the manufacturer or seller, on a reviewers comment, it is to protect against kids accidentally pulling them out? I didn’t feel like I was using a whole lot of force to the point something could be damaged so all is good. The plug is a flat plug that lays parallel to the wall. This means you will need to use the lower outlet, so that the other outlet is available to use for something else.
Also, please read the instructions. Apparently you are supposed to have the surge protector on “off” and then plug it in. After that plugging in the appliances and THEN turning the surge protector on. I have never done this with others so there must be a reason for it.
The other thing I noticed is that the manufacturer has written in very tiny letters on the bottom flap of the box where it is very inconspicous, the California Prop comment about the material causing birth defects and cancers etc. this is NOT in the comments of the Amazon description at all. I believe that it is something that needs to be addressed by Amazon and updated in the description. I mention this for those people who do watch for these comments and have a concern about it.
All in all I think this is going to be a better surge protector for the bedroom. I had a wonderful one from Monoline (and will keep it) but the two long green “runway” lights on it prevented good sleep with it’s the constant glow.
