If you are looking for a surge "protector" stay away from Progressive Industries "Smart Surge", they are a surge status "indicator" and polarity tester which means they only tell you if a surge occurred or there is a reverse polarity issue. Make sure you purchase a surge protector that states that in the description like Technology Research surge guard with ground.
