Good for laptops

4 Star Rating
Thursday, October 4, 2012 1:02:03 PM
Pros: It works as expected.
Cons: The three prong side is loose, to the point in which the cord will fall out if picked up.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to use my laptop on a long train ride. I didn't want to take a risk with plugging the laptop directly into the socket on the train, even though they have probably have surge protection. As long as the cord stays flat, it won't fall out of this surge protector.

Check Max Current

2 Star Rating
Thursday, October 20, 2011 10:35:59 AM
Pros: Fits snugly into power adapter/brick. Portable I am not sure that any pros are relevant for something that breaks when used as described.
Cons: Blew the first time I used it because I forgot to check the maximum current and we had to reset the breaker in the house. I plugged it into my power adapter, turned on the computer and a flash later I was sitting in the dark. The Maximum Current is 2.5A and my power adapter is rated at 6.7A. I assume that is why it blew. $10 down the drain.
Other Thoughts: I don't know how well it works for computers pulling less than 2.5A so I didn't give it a rating of a 1. As this product was specifically designed for laptop computers as mentions the brand of my laptop in the product description, I didn't even think about checking the ratings and think it is reasonable to assume it would work with "normal" laptop computers. As it is a single use item, even if it does work for some, the fact that it doesn't work for all "normal" laptops and self destructs when used as described in non-sure conditions warrants a low rating. The product description also didn't note that breaker might have to be reset when the unit was tripped. It would have been an even bigger issue if I first used it in a hotel room.
Response From Cyberguys Tech:
If a breaker trips in your house, it's probalby due to a short circuit. Perhaps the surge protector you received was mis-wired. Please contact our customer service department and request a replacement. As for your normal laptop, most desktop computers do not pull 6.7 amps on 110 volts (737 watts). 2.5 amps should be sufficient coverage for every laptop on the market today.

TRC Laptop Surge Protector.3 Prong

The Curmudgeon - Retired
5 Star Rating
Friday, April 2, 2010 5:54:39 PM
Pros: The unit fits between the laptop's power supply and the power cord, thus providing an "always there" surge protector. It is easy to install, unplug the power cord from the power supply, plug in the protector and it is installed. Buying several would give a user a supply of back ups.
Cons: It is a one surge and it needs to be replaced unit. The Joules protection is not given, so one can not know if a supplemental protector is needed for greater protection.
Other Thoughts: I have always liked this type of surge protector, they're easy to carry with you when you travel.
