I ask this because more recently I had a power surge, and it helped save a lot of my gear. This lead me to want to know, what surge protectors are you using? I'm using wall out let surge protectors, surge protector strips, and that's about it! They're all from APC which I love for their awesome warranty program. What about yourself? Are you using them? If so why! If not why? Thanks!

I don't think you can get power strips in Australia WITHOUT some sort of surge protection. I haven't seen a power strip without a surge protector in a long time. My power strips also have timers so if you're not using them, they automatically turn off.

well speaking of power outage, I just had one yesterday :oops:

I guess I better get to buying haha. I wanted to get APC, but I just see a lot of bad reviews and the product bursting into flames. So I'm not too sure :thinking:

The one thing I'm sure of is I gotta buy a battery-powered (or a small backup battery) air pump for my goldfish.

That's the worst! I've had no issue with my APC One, but that's one experience :X

Ugh that's scary. I don't use any at the moment. Maybe I should consider one.

Right now I just use a cheap one from Dollar General, I feel they all do the same thing anyway, sometimes you are just paying for the name of a product
