Provide professional-grade electrical protection against power surges and spikes for computers and electronics using the white Home Office SurgeArrest 8-Outlet Surge Protector with USB Charging from APC. This unit has eight NEMA 5-15R outlets, three of which are spaced to accommodate larger transformer plugs, and a standard NEMA 5-15P input connection. It uses an input voltage of 120V @ 50/60 Hz with a 15A input/line current, and has a surge energy rating of 2160 joules.

General Features
2 x USB Type-A Charging Ports (2.4A / 5V)
A total of 2.4A / 5V is provided for simultaneously charging mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Right-Angle Plug
A 90° plug angle allows for equipment and furniture to be placed closer to the wall than with a standard power cord. This also reduces cord stress.
Safety
Catastrophic Event Protection
SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and thermal fuse help ensure an instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spikes or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment. Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges.
Fail-Safe Mode
Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. With APC's SurgeArrest fail-safe, once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised, the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply, helping to ensure that no damaging surges reach your equipment.
Convenience
Protection Working Indicator
SurgeArrest will warn you if its circuitry has been damaged by a heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100% protection. If still under warranty, APC will then replace your damaged SurgeArrest free of charge.
Building Wiring Fault Indicator
This LED informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit.
Adjustable Cable Management
Keeps cords and cables neat and organized.
Receptacle Shock Safety Shutters
Shutters help protect users from accidental contact with unused outlets.
Transformer Block Spacing
Connect bulky transformer block plugs without covering up other outlets.
180° Rotating Cord Retainer
A 180° rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest and in routing the power cord.
Protection
Lightning and Surge Protection
This helps prevent damage to your equipment from electric power surges and spikes.
IEEE Let-Through Ratings and Regulatory Agency Compliance
APC surge protectors undergo stringent testing by the IEEE, and have been awarded "let-through ratings," which indicate the maximum voltage level that can possibly reach your equipment after a surge or voltage spike has passed through an electric surge protector. Lower IEEE let-through ratings indicate better protection and performance. The APC SurgeArrest series offers performance with a let-through rating of less than 330V for North American products, and a rating of less than 15% for products sold worldwide. All APC products comply with local agency safety requirements, including UL in North America and CE/Kema/Gost/C-tick/A-Tick/Telepermit in their respective regions.
Noise Filtering
Attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, helping to ensure better performance of protected equipment.

Offset Plugins

I have always liked APCC products. The offset plugins work great with multiple low voltage power supplies.

I recently took this on vacation internationally. I plugged it in, forgetting about the voltage difference. So, I used it only once, but it did its job well and prevented my electronics from being fried. (the surge protector was dead after that)

Excellent product

Well designed device. I like the feature that accommodates plug-in transformers. Easy to mount.

Nice basic surge protector for office equipment

It's a good surge protector. There's not much to say about it, although I do like the layout of the outlets with the three angled plugs for larger power bricks. It has plenty of outlets, mounts nicely, and has a couple of built-in USB charging ports which could make it easier to power additional media streaming devices when the rest of the outlets are taken up by the rest of your media console items.

Excellent Surge Protector with Flat plug

By Robert

Purchase this to place behind furniture, below a widescreen tv. It has a flat plug, making it easier to place the furniture closer to the wall; and, the 8 outlets provide more than enough coverage for the tv, cable box, blue ray player, etc.

Frustration continues with surge protectors

By Frances

Why can't someone make a surge protector where you can really use all the plugs? I thought this one was the answer, but because different plugs go in different directions, you are still limited in which plugs you can use. Large plugs in the front plugs block the usb. plugs from one side, block the other side.

Appreciate the quality and availability of products as well as quick and free shipping by FedEx. I'm always happy when I can support storefront businesses like B&H.

APC has always been my go to brand for surge protectors. This product works properly and as expected. The arrangement of outlets makes it more functional and allows for flexible placement of device connections.

APC's website states the let through voltage is 330 volts, but the back of the unit says 500. Could you explain this discrepancy to me?
Asked by: Walter
APC's website states a range of 330V to 500V for the Home Office SurgeArrest Surge Protector: The APC Essential SurgeArrest series offers optimal performance with a let-through rating of less than 330V to 500V for North American products.
