Product Overview

Connect your equipment with confidence when you power up using the GE Audible Alarm Tap. The single outlet wall tap comes with 1080 Joule surge protection, keeping your devices safe in the event of a catastrophic surge. When a surge happens, the extra energy from the voltage spike stays inside the surge protector, keeping your devices out of harms way. However, your surge protectors lifespan is finite and as it ages, it absorbs more Joules and its protective components become weaker. With the Audible Alarm Tap, youll no longer be left wondering when to replace your surge protector. Once its protective capacity has been reached, an 88 decibel alarm will continue to sound until the tap is unplugged from the wall. The wall tap occupies just one plug-in and easily fits behind furniture or in small spaces. Keep the safety of your electronics first with the Audible Alarm Tap.

Asked by MP March 19, 2019

Answer

Hello Valued Customer, we appreciate your question. The surge protector is tested per UL1449 standards with a combination wave 6000V/3000A surge to determine the voltage protection rating (VPR) of 400V L-N/N-G and 500V L-G. A Line-Neutral or Neutral-Ground surge will be clamped to approximately 400V. A Line-Ground surge will be clamped to approximately 500V. The surge has a thermal fuse which will open under a condition of excessive current, but the primary function is to interrupt power should a surge cause excessive overheating of the MOVs used to provide surge protection. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to respond or give us a call between the hours of 7:00 AM – 8:00 PM Central Standard Time, Monday thru Friday at 1-800-654-8483. Thank you.

A device rated for 220 volts would have different connectors.

Useful and Practical
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I guess that having a surge protector that fits into tight spaces with the added bonus of an audible alarm is a great idea. Putting one behind an appliance with only lights as indicators is useless if you cannot see them. That being said, I am using mine in the living room with my laptop plugged into it. As it is a living room, I do not want a multi-outlet power strip on display. I spend a lot of time on the laptop and the surge protector gives me added peace of mind. I have lost an appliance in the past due to an electrical surge and do not wish to do so again! The device fits tightly to the wall and I am still able to use the second outlet. The only thing that concerns me is there is no indicator light to let you know if it is actually working or not. Also, I won't know until there is a power surge how effective it is. However, based on the brand and other favorable reviews, I am confident that I have made the right choice.

This surge protector has good press by many prior users. That encouraged my purchase. I like its guarantees statements of protection and the measure of strength against electrical surges. It will issue a loud audible alarm if the device encounters its maximum cumulative lifetime protection by design. Then would be time to install a new one. All, good for me.

Works great for single plug surge protection
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This works great for a single plug surge protector. Certainly it is no frills but it really gets the job done. I needed surge protection on a mounted tv plugged into a single plug. This worked perfect for what I needed at a great price.
by Jerimy
Single surge protector
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the smallest surge protector that I've ever seen. It only has one outlet and will work great with appliances or other electronics that are alone. And it's less messy than using a standard power strip. What I did noticed was most power surges have an indicator light which this is lacking. It only has a audible alarm if it fails.
by Jlam949
Small but great!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a surge protector for a small space, but it seemed like I either ran across all longer, larger ones or the small ones had more negative than positive reviews. Then I found this from GE and it's perfect! It fits exactly where I need it to and I feel confident having my electronics plugged into it.

Perfect size
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just got this and I’m impressed that it’s not too big. It’s the perfect size for where I have it. Works nicely and stays in the outlet. I like the color and I can move it to any outlet I’d like to. Hopefully it protects well

Works great!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This GE Surge protector works great! I hooked it up to my refrigerator and so far it is working great. GE always has superior products and this one outlet tap surge protector does not disappoint! I highly recommend this surge protector for anyone looking to protect their appliances.
