Daily Deal: Aduro Surge Protector With 6 Outlets & 2 USB Ports

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Powerstrips are handy, but sometimes you just need more outlets at the wall. For $19, the Aduro Surge Protector has you covered. It features 6 grounded outlets and 2 USB charge ports, and it comes with an extra long screw you can use in place of the wall plate screw to help provide extra stabilization. The Safety Shutdown Technology protects your devices from power surges, and a lighted indicator lets you know that you’re protected.

I’m not impressed with the image showing a recessed outlet given this plugs into an existing outlet. It implies this unit can replace an existing outlet, but I see no way the shell is removable.

I’m not impressed with the “Power up to 7 devices at once” on a unit clearly having 8 outlets (2 USB).

I’m not impressed with the lack of a guarantee should the device not do what it claims.

“$250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico only)”

This was taken from the Tripp Lite (a corded surge protector) I am currently using.

When a company is putting its own money behind its products, this gives me great confidence I can hook up $4k+ worth of electronics to it.

This unit does not instill the same confidence, so I’m going to pass on the deal.

You should read the disclaimers on those products that claim to insure you up to $100,000 worth in damages or whatever. You may have to prove that a surge caused the damage to your equipment. You may also have to prove the value of what was damaged (the current fair market value not the cost of purchase). Thirdly the insurance associated with some of those surge protectors may only be valid for a limited time after purchase (I’ve read some that explicitly stated a number of years and others may have an indicator light). I’ve also read message boards on these with mixed reviews. One recommendation is to keep receipts for everything as proof (ie: the damaged equipment when you purchased it and the surge protector). In general I would not rely on those warranties.

Seems designed by someone who isn't going to use it.

I had something like this a long time ago. They stick out of the outlet about an inch and a half and with stuff plugged into them they need at least three inches of clearance from the wall, maybe more depending on the power cords. In my world I have lots of “black wall wart” power supplies that I need to plug in. The close spacing of the outlets would accommodate at most two of them and cover up adjacent outlets in the process.
