Belkin Economy Series 4-Socket Surge Protector

My computer is not switched on 24/7. Last Saturday, when I turn on my new computer, it causes my Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) to trip. This is the first time I encountered a trip in MCB. Typically, it is the Circuit Breaker inside my house that will be tripped.

Sadly, after that happened, I can no longer switch on my computer. I suspect my Power Supply Unit (PSU) is fried.

XPower 3 Socket Power Strip With 4 USB Ports

I have not heard of the brand XPower before till Kakki, sole distributor of XPower, wrote to me to see if I was interested in featuring their products.

I took a look at their products on Lazada and found that they sell cables, power banks, USB chargers, etc.

MOGICS Power Bagel

I backed the MOGICS Power Donut/Bagel project on Kickstarter on 14th February 2016. The project was funded on 29th February 2016 after raising a total of US$437,738 out of their initial goal of US$15,000 from 9,882 backers.

Both the Power Donut and Power Bagel are travel power strips which is shaped like a circle for space saving.

SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets

Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of its tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.

There are two variants for the SoundTeoh Tower Socket. One is this and the other is the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 8 Outlets And 2 USB Ports and it costs S$89.90. A good thing about the included USB ports is the combined output of 4.2A which makes it capable of outputting 2.1A per port. Personally, I find it is not worth an additional S$20 if you have a couple of multiple USB port chargers lying around like the Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger or the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger.

Belkin Home Series 4-Socket Surge Protector

My cable Internet contract is expiring and I will be switching over to Fibre Internet before 24th August 2011. As I do not have a Fibre Termination Point (TP) in my room, I can’t place the gateway in my room and hence I have to move it to the living room where the TP is located. In order to facilitate the move to Fibre Internet, I got the Belkin Home Series 4-Socket Surge Protector for S$25 from the PC Show 2011.

I am a strong believer of surge protection after my previous cable modem got fried. All my 24/7 switched-on devices like my modem, switches, router and NAS goes though Belkin Surge Protector. Since there are only 4 sockets (which is just nice for me) to fit 1x Switch, 1x Router, 1x Home Gateway and 1x NAS.
