Mugenter Surge Protector Power Strip
Power cuts are a fact of life if you live in a State with inclement weather. Texas’ hurricane season is reputed to be from January 1 to December 31, and the State sees witness to some powerful storms. This can mean power cuts or, arguably worse for our delicate electronic devices, power spikes, surges and brown outs. All of these can cause havoc with electronic products, and one way to help prevent this is to use a surge protector. This can go between the main socket on the wall and your computer equipment on a desk, or perhaps a home entertainment system, and is designed to smooth out the electrical supply to protect your electronics.
Surge protector power strips aim to reduce the risk of destroying several of your electronics devices, and the Mugenter unit comes with a raft of certifications from CE, the FCC and RoHS demonstrating the standards that the strip has passed. The product comes with three earthed conventional power sockets plus four USB ports; it’s ideal for a desk with a computer or Chromebook, monitor and printer, plus plenty of powered USB ports to keep your devices charged up.
Each USB port can deliver up to 2.4A of current, and although these USB ports do not conform to an official fast charging standard, if the device in question supports this amount of current, you benefit from fast charging. Also, because each port can independently deliver this much current, the Mugenter Surge Protector Power Strip can recharge four devices at the same rate. The four USB ports come with flip-over dust protectors and do not occupy much more space than a fourth conventional power socket. The Surge Protector is not portable in the same way that the Mugenter 3 Port Travel Adapter, but it’s no bigger than it has to be.
The Mugenter Surge Protector benefits from a master power switch for the whole assembly, meaning it’s easy to shut down power to your desk and chargers at night to save electricity. It also comes with a 5-foot cable, which is longer than most similar products I’ve tried. The longer cable means the adapter can be better positioned, which sometimes means locating it on the desk rather than on the floor – and that’s much easier for plugging in multiple USB devices without crawling around on the ground. Bonus points to Mugenter for this!
Another use I’ve found for the Mugenter Surge Protector is when converting a coffee table as a locum office for one or two people. We’ve enough power sockets to keep Chromebooks and coffee machines powered up, and having four high power USB ports is great for our ‘phones, chargers, and the developers we are talking to about their latest app!
To conclude, the Mugenter Surge Protector Power Strip is one of those products that you might buy hoping that you’ll never need the surge protection, but discover that it’s very handy for the home, the office, or the home office! It’s the little features that make this a great product: the master power switch is more handy than individual switches, and the longer-than-usual cable to the wall socket give the Mugenter a definite thumbs up.
