If you have an expensive computer, then using surge protectors is essential. This is a very effective way to protect our devices from sudden surges that could possibly cause damage to some of our computer components. Recently, I have heard that Belkin launched its mini surge protector that additionally allows to connect USB powered devices. This is a very useful feature and Belkin is one of a few if not the only company that introduced such surge protectors. Such mini surge protector are portable might cost around $25. Generally, it is worth it to invest some money in order to protect our computers. After all, our computers often cost hundreds of dollars.
