Surge Protector vs. Power Strips

It's a good idea to plug your computer into a power strip that has a surge protector in it. Not all power strips have this feature. If your power strip doesn't state that it has a surge protector it probably does not and you should upgrade to help protect your expensive electronics.

Another precaution along these lines is to make sure that the surge protector you use has a place to hook in your phone line. If you hook your phone from your computer into the phone jack and don't go through the surge protector, your computer can be damaged beyond repair during a thunderstorm.
