Spikes/surges are common in every house, office and building. The intensity varies and you never know when that killer spike will occur. Even milder spikes will gradually degrade the reliability of your equipment by repeatedly blowing microscopic holes in electronic circuitry until the equipment is rendered unreliable or non-functional. Data is particularly at risk. The Sollatek SpikeGuard is extremely simple to plug and connect. Replaces the traditional spike/surge plug which required wiring to the cable of your equipment, the SpikeGuard is a plug and go device. Additionally, plugging into it or adjacent to it, the equipment is protected.
