Earlier this year, a pretty major thunderstorm caused our power to blink off and on repeatedly over the course of about an hour. Knowing full well the effect those kinds of surges can have on electronics, I had everything plugged into surge protectors. Well, almost everything. Yep, I lost a soundbar, the one item that was plugged directly into an AC outlet. Trust me, you don't want to learn this lesson the hard way, so here's an incredibly affordable fix: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Addtam 6-outlet power strip surge protector drops to just $15 (with on-page coupon). It normally sells for $20, making this a 25% markdown.
There's no time like the holidays to be looking hard at a surge protector, what with all the new electronics that'll be sitting under the tree. Oh, and then there's the tree itself — you'll want to make sure all those lights and plug-in ornaments don't get fried.
Why this over the several zillion other surge protectors available from Amazon? Obviously the price is great, but this actually has a lot of other points in its favor. First, it has a right-angled flat plug, so it won't get in the way if you have furniture parked close by. And the power cord is braided, meaning it's all but impossible to tangle.
As for the strip itself, it's wall-mountable and has six protected AC outlets and three USB ports. The former are arranged 3 x 3, which is convenient.
Here's the really telling part: The Addtam surge protector has a 4.8-star average rating from more than 18,000 buyers. Needless to say, this thing works, and people like it.
At less than $15, I might actually love it.
