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.
