Provides Complete Safety for Your Home Theater The electronics in your home theater can be damaged from the surges, dips and spikes that are common with AC power. For areas plagued by lightning or power outages, extremely high voltages caused by these events can travel through the power, coaxial, ethernet and telephone lines seriously damaging your home theater system. The Accell GreenGenius? surge protector provides a high surge absorption capacity of 3600 Joules for excellent power protection. It features dual gold-plated coaxial f-pin connections and a RJ45 ethernet port which are needed for protection from rouge voltage traveling through your coaxial or ethernet cables. Eliminates Stand-by Power Loss - Save Energy and Money Most electronic devices draw power when idle, in standby mode or even when turned off. A Department of Energy study showed that 15% of the energy an average household uses is for standby current. When the GreenGenius Smart Surge Protector is used, it automatically turns off the power to idle devices, eliminating electricity usage and saving you money.
