Power Strip for Power AdaptersUploader: Fenrilabar 1 month ago Subscribe 4
When using a master—slave power strip, one way to avoid such problems is to plug an appliance with a lower standby wattage such as a DVD player into the master socket, using it as the master control instead. Since MOVs degrade somewhat each time they are triggered, power strips using them have a limited, and unpredictable, protective life. Any plug fitted to the socket outlet unit must comply with the requirements of BS Specification for rewirable and non-rewirable 13A fused plugs. Surge suppression is usually provided by one or more metal-oxide varistors MOVs , which are inexpensive two-terminal semiconductors. Media related to power strips at Wikimedia Commons. Overheating and fires are a huge concern with power strips, but this one has stayed cool the entire time I have used it with 4 devices plugged in and even when I charge my iPad, phone, and accessories.
