Most people gets overwhelmed when they are out shopping for surge protection devices for their home and office. Besides the lack of knowledge on how to choose a good surge protector, a lot of non-technical shoppers are turned off by abbreviations and terminologies used in some of the product descriptions. I remember spending over an hour explaining to a client of mine some of the terminologies used on a surge protector product manual some weeks ago.

So again, I am hopeful that this category of tips and information for surge protection would be able to help provide “technical help” to people like you – whom may not understand most of what is written inside the product description or manual of surge protection system.
