Surge Protector vs. Power Strip

It’s a common misconception that surge protectors and power strips are the same. However, they most certainly aren’t.

Power strips simply give you the ability to plug multiple devices into a single wall outlet. On the other hand, surge protectors are in your home’s main power panel box. However, there are standalone surge protectors that look the same as a power strip but provide protection.

You can find a surge protector with USB functionality. We recommend using a whole-house surge protector and individual power surge protector strips for a surge protector vs. power strips.

You can use an individual surge protector with a USB if you prefer to charge your devices with just a cable. Poss Electric’s double-tiered approach of combining a surge protector with a surge protection outlet offers the most safety for your home.
