But it is not just an outlet; it is called the “surge protector”. In rational, it is “an appliance/device designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. It attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or by shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold”, says Mr. Wikipedia. This alone protects your laptop and other electronic devices around the house.
