Tripp Lite Protect It! SWIVEL6 6-Outlet Surge Suppressor
While the protection rating on this model only comes in at 1,500 Joules, that's still quite a bit higher than many cheap surge protectors that are really little more than power strips. This device still provides some protection against surges from your power company or similar external sources. The major difference between this budget surge protector and a lot of others on the market is that this one has no cord, and instead plugs directly into your wall outlet. This is great if your desk or electronics are close to an outlet, as it eliminates an extra cord but it can be ineffective if your outlet is far from your devices. There are only six outlets on this device and none of them are spaced out for larger plugs but they can be "swiveled" to change their angle. This lets you more easily plug various items into them without the cords or plugs getting in the way of each other. Two diagnostic LEDs let you easily see if this device is protecting your hardware and warns you if your outlet isn't properly grounded.
