    Cheaper at centercom

  • I need a surge protector to protect my pool equipment circuits (pump, chlorinator etc), Would this be suitable?

    • Probably a good idea. My chlorinator died last week and pretty darn expensive to replace.

      • Unsure if this is up to the task in terms of kilojules.

  • Thank you OP. Will check tomolo

    Wondering what happened to those surge protectors with like ‘up to $10000 warranty if they don’t work’ type deals.

    Are the pt still a thing

  • +4

    I have one of these and things would crackle when I plugged them in or pulled them out, and the indoor antenna would zap me when I touched it. Looking at how well these rate I imagine I just got a dud.

      Just had a few CyberPower items fail test&tag last week. Improper earthing.

    • +1

      Yeah mine do the same.

    • +1

      I have two and both crackle too - am a bit concerned

    • +2

      That's because these are cheap shit and nobody should use them!

      Seriously.. Stop using it. Then open it up and post the pics of the internals. I no longer have one to do so myself. Then maybe these ozb posts would stop!

    Waiting for Amazon to price match

    3 for $75 + shipping from shopping express. Also might be able to do price beat from office works.

    For those with eBay Plus, it's $32 delivered here with the code PLUSEOY if you've yet to use it.

    • Argh! So, PLUSEOY can only be used once like the AFTERPAY10 code?

      • +1

        Yep, once per Plus account.

        There's a few other listings which have it for around $34 though with PLUSDEC5.

    • Thanks for sharing. Bought via your eBay link.

    • Thanks bought two for $57.60!

    not sure if i need this or not, but seems like a lot of people need it, so i need it.
    thank you, in for 1.

  • Thanks. Just ordered one from Scorptec (click and collect from macquarie park was easier for me) :)

    The comments above regarding crackling and piping noises are not very reassuring. I would prefer to spend a little more and buy something like this which has a $50,000 connected devices warranty:

    Saving money is great but so is reliability and having a guarantee.

      Still no individual switches for each plug. What is this this? Year 2000? We are 21+ years behind

      All the crap design and cheap models come to Australia

        Still no individual switches for each plug. What is this this? Year 2000? We are 21+ years behind

        I like power boards with the individual switches too but I'd say the overall trend is laziness + leave-everything-on-cos-it's-"smart", means it matters even less for people.

        Some things are better in the past anyway, like flagship phones with headphone jacks, external memory and replaceable batteries :P

        • +1

          Yeah that’s right. This trend is not good at all.I know there are smart power boards these days but still individual switches are so much better

    • thanks missed those posts above

    • Not sure if this would be much better when that is rated for 900 Joules of surge protection for while this board is rated for 2750

      • +1

        Have had 2 Belkin ones for several years now. No cracking or popping, buzzing or humming.

        Pretty nicely made units to be honest.

        USB ports are still trash though lol.

      The ebay link shows the cyberpopwer has a $50,000 warranty too…..just saying: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/NeQAAOSwTF1dXNjq/s-l1600.jpg

      • Probably many T&C you won't be able to claim it

        • +1

          Possibly, but I kinda thought that would apply to most companies tho…..

    • Saving money is great but so is reliability and having a guarantee.

      The surge protection (joules) rating of the CyberPower model is way higher than the Belkin. Unless they are lying through their teeth?

    • I've got two of these that are fine without Poppin or crackling. You've got to ask how many happy customers with them that don't leave comments (applies to everything).

      I think the box has X amount equipment covered, no idea if applicable in Aus or who underwrites it, or if anyone has ever tried claiming on these.

  • Amazon $33

  • I want to know still where to buy one with surge protection plus individual switching, power board.

  • +1

    Seem like average price.

  • This is cheaper with surge protection n 4 usbs

    https://m.catch.com.au/product/sansai-4-outlet-power-board-4...

    Combine with $15 off lattitude promo for $60 purchase

    • The Sansai only has 4 outlets and 375J surge protection, compared to the 8 outlet CyberPower with 2750J protection.

      • Good point! Any minimum J we need? Thanks

        • Not sure on that front, it would depend on what you’re protecting and what you’re trying to protect from. Maybe someone with more knowledge than me could chime in.

    • Sansai is known to be poor quality

      • They were pretty good for a brand stocked by cheap as chips….

    Arlec 12 Outlet Power Board With Surge Protection
    $20.89

    • Well… Pretty sure someone will say it's crap lol.. M which may be true

      • I checked the 28 reviews on bunnings and the only gripe was there was no hole in the back for wall mounting, so bought one tonight
