Are you travelling abroad without the surge protector? Are you still unaware about the type of socket points to charge your laptop, mobile and other important accessories? The only solution to this problem is a 220 volt surge protector which can easily get fixed into any international socket thereby helping you in operating the devices you want. Through the help of these protectors you can easily operate many devices at the same time and like other multiple sockets in the market they are also comparatively safe. These surge protectors prevent your costly equipment from any damages due to voltage fluctuations.

As this protector has five to six grounded volt outlets and each outlet is capable of bearing up to 220 volts and is also capable of accommodating two round pins. As four different electrical adapters are built into this 220 volt power strip therefore you do not need to carry different adapters for separate countries while travelling abroad. Small and light in weight these power strips also have an indicator light and safety shutters. As these protectors are designed to trap the voltage that exceeds a specified limit therefore you need to be careful while buying it.

It is advisable only to use 220 volt power strips that have an internal circuit breaker. These units would trip the breaker if the power strip is overloaded or shorted to prevent overheating and fire. Avoid buying or using any surge protectors that has frayed wires. If at any time the power strip is hot to touch remove and replace the unit. Do not plug a power strip into an existing surge protector as it can lead to serious consequences. Avoid using the power strip in moist environments..

These surge protectors are essential when travelling abroad but in order to be safe you need to inspect them on a regular basis to ensure that they are not damaged or show any signs of wear. They should have a polarized plug with one of the blades being larger than the other one. Do not keep the power strip connected to the power source when not in use for safety reasons.
