Belkin unveils new surge protection lineup in Australia + GIVEAWAY

COmputer power surge

Belkin, a consumer electronics leader, has announced the launch of its latest Surge Protection lineup, further bolstering its commitment to innovation in devices focused on consumer safety and device protection.

This range refresh was pioneered in Australia by the local Belkin ANZ team to ensure that it addresses key local needs, ensuring Australian consumers have access to the latest technologies, backed by Belkin’s comprehensive testing, certifications, and premium design. The range is available now in stores across the nation, starting at $34.95.

Available in 1, 4, 6 and 8 Outlet options, the new Surge Protection Range delivers up to 1800 joule ratings, fast charging dual USB-C Power Delivery Ports, hardworking MOV’s (Metal Oxide Varistors), 6 or 11 point safety systems, durable and elegant white design, and increased Connected Equipment Warranties.

Belkin’s Surge Protection lineup not only shields home and office electronics from potentially dangerous power surges and spikes but also offers a robust Connected Equipment Warranty (CEW). CEW goes beyond standard product warranties, assuring users that their connected devices—be it phones, laptops, washing machines, or TVs—are covered in the event of damage caused by electrical surges or lightning strikes while properly connected to a Belkin Surge Protector. Belkin will replace or repair their connected equipment with coverage extending up to $70,000*, providing peace of mind to its customers. The Surge Protection range comes with a two-year warranty alongside the connected equipment warranty (CEW).

Additionally, this new Surge Protection lineup furthers Belkin’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, with the entire range housed in plastic-free packaging.

“Surge Protection is one of our most important categories in this region. We know that Australian and New Zealand consumers want their key home technology to be protected, and it’s now more important than ever with the cost of connected devices on the rise. Storms can be wild and unpredictable, so it’s vital that consumers can rely on a brand like ours for enhanced protection and peace of mind,” said Jamie Laing-Reece, Head of Product Management, Belkin ANZ.

In addition to the Connected Equipment Warranty (CEW), Belkin’s quality standards deliver the following key features across the new range, with an elevated set of performance-based benefits in the 4, 6, and 8 outlet options:

Key Features

Know you’re protected at a glance.

A built-in indicator light shows you that your protection is active and working, and lets you know if it’s time to change your surge protector. A recessed power switch offers security against accidental shut-off.

Hardworking MOV’s

High-capacity Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs) absorb damaging excess energy and release it as heat to protect your connected device.

2m power cord and built-in wall mounts

The 2m power cord allows for easy placement under a desk or behind appliances. Plus, built-in mounting holes give you the flexibility to hang, mount, or attach your surge protector where you need it.

Power Delivery and dynamic PPS technology

The USB-C ports offer Power Delivery charging to compatible devices, so you’ll charge faster than using standard USB-A ports. Onboard PPS (Programmable Power Supply) technology detects the connected device and negotiates the optimal amount of power needed for an ideal fast charge.

Dual USB-C ports

Two Fast Charging USB-C Power Delivery and PPS ports provide convenient expansion and flexibility for when you’re missing a power brick. You’ll have up to 30W of power shared across the two ports to fast charge smartphones and many other devices.

Protected by an 11-point safety system

Your device is plugged into a protector that offers overvoltage, over-temperature, overload, over-current, short-circuit, and clamping voltage defence. It offers 3-line AC protection (ground, neutral, and line) and is made from material that passes a Glow Wire Test at 850?. An indicator light shows when surge protection is active, and a warning light shows when the power coming through is not grounded.
