    Anti-power surges gadgets

    Do you use any anti-power surge gadget in your households?

    Asked friends around kasi eh, marami akong kilala na walang idea about power surges na nakakasira ng appliances. Hindi ba importante ito?

    its called a surge protector. and yes, power surges can destroy your appliances, computers and even lighting fixtures thats if you are using LED fixtures.

    so if it's not an LED Fixture, they're okay?

    what appliances usually get affected by power surges?

    what surge protectors do you use for your electronics?

    another term is AVR or Automatic Voltage Regulator. it protects your electronics by absorbing the sudden electrical fluctuation. it has a fuse which gets burned and stops the flow at that point.

    medyo bihira na din kasi ang power fluctuations ngayon. most people I see use the delay start timer (not sure of the term) para hindi patay sindi kung on-off ang flow ng electricity due to surges

    have ever experience an electric fluctuation were your electric fan slows down, airconditioner muffles, the lights dimmed, and the tv or monitor whites out?

    those are unusual operations for your appliances and if it unusual it may breakdown. that why, in an electric fluctuation or blackout it is advisable to turn of or unplug your appliance and wait for a while after the electricity returns before plugging these again.

    most new appliances have on board surge protectors. even the new LED model have regulators. better to have an AVR for your old appliances.
