Summary. The Fellowes Mighty 8 Surge Protector is one of the nicest and least expensive surge protectors available.
Price. The suggested retail price is $17.84 according to the Fellowes product page. They are available for $14.99 at Iowa Book and Supply in Iowa City, or $8.80 at our online Amazon store. Whenever possible, we encourage you to buy locally rather than online.
Benefits. Many surge protectors have 6 outlets that are very close together, so a larger transformer plug would use up the space of two or three outlets on the power strip. With the Mighty 8 Surge Protector, there are 8 outlets that are at different angles which allows for larger plugs and transformers to fit without taking up too much room. The plug for the surge protector is at a right angle, so it can be plugged in behind a desk, filing cabinet, bookshelf, or dresser without needing several inches of clearance between the wall and furniture. The 6 foot cord offers plenty of distance.
Protection. The Mighty 8 Surge Protector offers 1300 Joules of protection and a $50,000 warranty against surge related damages. An LED indicator provides an alert in case of wiring fault or surge damage.
