All You Need To Know About Surge Protectors

Before we get into the details of what a surge protector is, why you might need one, and which one you should get, we're going to learn what a power spike is.

Power Spike a.k.a. Power Surge

A power spike (or power surge) is a rapid rise in voltage that exceeds over the normal amount of electricity. It lasts about a thousandth of a second, but can cause damage to plugged in electronic devices. Devices that can be harmed include TVs, phones, computers, microwaves, DVD players, fax machines, stereos, and other electrical appliances. Power spikes are caused by lightning, downed power lines/transformers, faulty/damaged wiring, or the by the actual energy-sucking device. Please note: surges affect not only electrical wiring, but any wire that goes through a house, including phone cords and cable lines.

WD-40 doesn't just fix squeaky bicycle chains and door hinges, it's called the Multi-Use Product for a reason.

Featured Product: Dewalt DCN890 20V Cordless Concrete Nailer

Dewalt produces impressive and contractor-grade performing cordless power tools, so we weren't surprised when we loved their recent product. Dewalt partnered with Powers Fastening and introduced a new 20V cordless concrete and steel nailer: the DCN890 (on sale for April 2018!).

It differentiates itself by removing the need for gas fuel and powder loads, thus, eliminating the costs to regularly replace these sources, as well as fumes and the need to store cartridges. Goodbye powder actuated and gas concrete nailers, hello more convenient, rechargeable batteries! Plus, if you already use 20V batteries on your other Dewalt power tools, it's extremely quick and easy to switch the battery from one tool to another.
