True story: Earlier this year, a pretty major thunderstorm caused our power to blink off and on repeatedly over the course of about an hour. Knowing full well the effect those kinds of surges can have on electronics, I had everything plugged into surge protectors. Well, almost everything.
Yep, I lost a sound bar, the one item that was plugged directly into an AC outlet. Trust me, you don’t want to learn this lesson the hard way, so here’s an incredibly affordable fix: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Addtam 6-outlet power strip surge protector drops to just $13 when you clip the 15%-off coupon and then apply promo code 9V7FP9RN at checkout. It normally sells for $20; often it goes on sale for $17. The coupon and code combine to make one of the best deals ever.
Why this over the several zillion other surge protectors available from Amazon? Obviously the price is great, but this actually has a lot of other points in its favor. First, it has a right-angled flat plug, so it won’t get in the way if you have furniture parked close by. The power cord is braided, meaning it’s all but impossible to tangle.

As for the strip itself, it’s wall-mountable and has six protected AC outlets and three USB ports. The former are arranged 3 x 3, which is convenient, though I do wish they were set apart a bit more to accommodate oversize power adapters.
Here’s the really telling part: The Addtam surge protector has a 4.8-star average rating from close to 11,000 buyers. Needless to say, this thing works, and people like it.
At just $13, I might actually love it.
