Surge protector and owner's manual
You can view the product specifications with the picture of the back of the surge protector or a snap shot of the owner's manual (attached).
Smart Charging - Briefly, this surge protector is capable of "smart charging" your phone. Before explaining, let me preface that by saying that each electronic device is only capable of charging at a maximum rate. It can not charge faster than that rate. If you have a phone that charges at 1.0A, no matter what charger you get, it will not charge faster than that. On the flip side, if you have a phone that charges at 2.4A, it will charge at a slower rate if your charger only supports a maximum charge rate of 1.0A. Many tablets and some phones allow a charge up to 2.4A. This surge protector is capable of charging up to 2.4A.
Power Buttons - you can turn off individual outlets or you can turn of all USB ports and all electrical outlets.
Electrical Cord Length - 69" or 5' 9". The cord is quite long. I find that to be a good thing. However, everyone has their own applications. If you only need a short cord, you can tie up the loose cord or maybe find a more suitable surge protector
Joules - This device has a maximum of 3,500 Joules. This is quite high comparatively speaking. Basically, each time your surge protector takes a "surge" of electricity, it diminishes the life, or ability to protect your electronic devices. Unfortunately, no surge protector comes with a device to measure the remaining number of Joules. For that reason, it's best to throw out your old surge protectors (particularly when you are using expensive or sensitive devices i.e. laptops, appliances, etc.)
Wattage - This device has a maximum wattage of 2,500. It's suitable for powering many things: televisions, freezers, computers, laptops, fans, etc.
Overall, this surge protector and USB smart charger have met all of my needs. I like the high number of Joules, sufficient wattage and a relatively long power cord. I am pleased with this product! Will it meet your needs?
