TrickleStar 180SS-US-12CT 12 Outlet Advanced PowerStrip with Coax and Phone Surge Protection

 

 

TrickleStar’s 180SS-US-12CT 12 Outlet Advanced PowerStrip with Coax and Phone Surge Protection is the ideal aide in reducing wasted standby energy also referred to as vampire energy. TV’s, computers and other household products still continue to draw energy even when they are not turned on which can lead to a whole lot of wasted energy. Current sensing circuitry in this surge protector recognizes when a product in the control outlet is either off or on and can then power off or on the switch outlets accordingly. A TV or computer is typically the product used for the control outlet while the subsequent switched outlets are for products that are used with the control product. When off the control outlet and switched outlets stop drawing power until the product in the control outlet is turned on. Thus if you have a TV plugged into the control outlet and a video game console plugged into one of the switched outlets then the video game console outlet will automatically power off when the TV is not turned on and vice versa. Of the 12 outlets, 1 is reserved as the control, 8 are switched outlets which work in unison with the control and the remaining 3 outlets are “always-on” outlets that are not affected by the control. This PowerStrip also offers coaxial and RJ11 (phone and fax) surge protection of 288,000 Amps or 4,320 Joules. This 12 Outlet Advanced PowerStrip is ideal for residential and workplace uses and comes equipped with a heavy duty 4 foot power cable that has an angled space saving plug.

TrickleStar’s Metal Oxide Varistor, MOV, surge protection technology is encased in a ceramic fireproof casing which is capable of preventing fire during abnormal surge conditions. The ceramic casing is capable of both suppressing more energy and dissipating heat faster than that of traditional MOV’s.

You can save $$ every month on your utility bills if you keep your vent system free of lint. The system generally pays for itself in the cost savings after the first use. In addition, it will help avoid the fires that can occur when lint buildup blocks the flow of air, causing excessive heat buildup by keeping your dryer vent clear with the The LintEater Jr. The LintEater Jr is ideal for use with cleaning shorter dryer vents.
