Enercell Energy-Saving Surge Protector from RadioShack+ Giveaway


Have you ever been sitting at home and all of a sudden you’ll notice that your lights flicker?

Those electrical spikes, dropouts, and surges are pretty common. The problem is that occasionally they’re strong enough to damage plugged-in electrical devices.

So it’s a good idea to use a surge protector to absorb those voltage increases before they ever hit your electronics.


I just started using this Enercell surge protector from RadioShack which has 11 electrical outlets, 2 coax jacks, 3 phone jacks, 2 ethernet jacks, and 2 USB power ports.

My Favorite Surge Protector Features


Six switched outlets

The switched outlets can be turned off to conserve power. I use those plugs for my printer, computer, monitor and TV. I use the “Always On” plugs for my modem, router and land line phone.

8-foot long cord

Without that length, I’d never fit all those electrical doodads into one unit.


Child Safety Covers

Each of the available outlets has a sliding cover for safety.


4 wide power adapter outlets

I still have lots of room to add anything with big boxy plugs.


Circuit breaker for extra protection

Shuts down if it can’t handle additional surges.


5 year $250,000 limited connected equipment guarantee

I’m guessing you can tell that I’m pretty pleased with this surge protector. I know that nothing is fail-safe, and I never trust lightning to behave nicely so I still unplug completely, but for general everyday use, I feel pretty darn good about this!

Buy It! The Enercell 11-outlet surge protector is available for $59.99 at RadioShack stores or at RadioShack.com
