Best Spike Guard or Spike Buster Power Strips to Buy in India

A spike buster or spike guard is a device that has multiple power sockets and is used to protect your electronic and electrical devices from voltage spikes or surges. It is most commonly used with computers, printers and other electrical devices that are sensitive to voltage spikes and high current. It is also used an extension device where you have only power socket and multiple devices to connect. It is also called as Power Strip.

A Spike Buster or Spike Guard usually consists of a surge protection circuit (consisting of varistors) and a fuse which blows off when the excessive current passes through it. Here in this post I will tell you on how to find a good spike guard and list some of the best spike busters that you can buy for your computer and other electronic gadgets.

How to Find a Good Spike Guard or Power Strip

Here are various important things that you should look for when choosing a spike buster or power strip.

Number of Power Sockets – Spike Guards or Power strips comes with different number of power sockets or power outlets. Some comes with 3 sockets, some with 6 and some have 8 power sockets. So buy it according to your requirements as spike busters with more power sockets are expensive than the fewer ones.

Protection Features – See that the power strip or spike guard comes with surge protector and overload protection features. This is because cheap and local power strips comes with no protection at all. A good power strip should have at least surge protection and a fuse.

USB Charging Ports – This is optional but if you want a spike guard that charges your phone without any adapter then you can look for a power strip with inbuilt USB charging ports.

Maximum Capacity – Every spike guard has a maximum load or limit in terms of current and power it can handle. Basic spike busters are rated at maximum 6A current output while the heavy duty spike guards can handle 10A current and maximum load of 2500W. So if you have devices that draw more power and current then go with heavy duty spike guard otherwise for normal usage a basic one is sufficient.

Switches – A spike guard may have one master switch for all sockets or individual switches for each power sockets. You can choose any one of them according to your needs or requirements.

Brand or Company – A cheap unbranded spike guard can do more harm than good. Always buy a branded spike guard because it will provide your devices unmatched protection and also lasts longer. Some good brands of spike guard are Goldmedal, Gavik/Tukzer, GM, Belkin, Artis.
