    I am a fan of this product --

    Robot Check

    Not for it's surge protection but it does include it. There are two AWESOME features hiding in plain sight.

    Ever buy a big plug pad and you can't use half the plugs because what's plugged in is so big it blocks other outlets? Those little mofos SPIN. You're welcome.

    Also the plugs on these pads can be thick and robust -- sticking out of the socket four to five inches with a cord that doesn't like to bend so much. You're welcome again.

    :)

    So... suppose you have this tucked away out of view. But sometimes you want to be able to plug and unplug certain items quickly. Without going under your desk. Voila --

    I have my OnePlus plugged into one of the two socket. Because I don't want to climb under my desk each time I need the charger. Plus those 3 USB ports charge a BT speaker, a tiny quiet desk fan, and my earbuds.

    I've seen that unit before and it's nice, but I wouldn't use it to "protect" my system.

    Some advice -

    APC - Great!
    CyberPower - Very good!
    Tripp Lite - Very good!

    Belkin - Stay away!
    No Names - Double stay away!

    Do what makes you feel comfortable but it is UL listed.

    Pretty much all of them are (including mine) or they wouldn't be on the market

    As one who also had APC units, I see no advantage over Cyberpower other than name recognition.

    It's also not a UPS or surge protector, nor is it listed as such by KPSTEK

    Here's a Belkin surge protector without a UL listing.

    Robot Check

    It seems surge protectors can be on the market without UL listings.

    If the incoming power is clean ... how can wiring inside the home make it worse? (It cannot.)

    The Power coming into your house maybe clean, but the inside wiring could be not up to Code. I ran my own electric into my Computer room, and ECOS tested it plus I have additional surge protection past the UPS.

    Just curious - how do you know that it's not UL listed?
