Interesting ineed! I doubt the average Joe even considers the difference when buying one though. So have you found a suitable product yet and if so are you following the advice?

Re: Wanting a new surge protected extension strip

Still have other things on mind (personal), that take precedence.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Have you considered a motor-generator set?

These are immune to virtually any spike (short of a lightening discharge).

Can be a bit noisy though. Cheesy

Not as noisy as that gif image in your signature. Grin Looks like strawberry jam running off a conveyor belt or is it paint?

What is it meant to be exactly? Huh

I imagine it to be blood dripping from the ceiling, due to a dead body lying on the floor above. Thumbs Up

Would you really want to trust your valuable electronics to a device sold by Aldi? Probably made from cheap inferior parts to keep price down.

One other little job to do- fix it's cable and that for HomePlug and router to skirting for safety. Best way?

Re: Wanting a new surge protected extension strip

Now what about a walking aid for gardeners, who like tending their lawns? Something like a trimmer frame?
