Unhappy reviews on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/iGo-PM00012-0001-Green-Power-Smart/product-reviews/B0039KFS2S/ref=cm_cr_dp_hist_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&filterBy=addOneStar

Almost hit Buy until I checked.

Could it be??? TWO FOR TUESDAY IS BACK!?!?!?

Please tell me this has a good chance of catching on fire when I plug it in. My 6 fire extinguishers will be useless otherwise.

I always have to ask - 220v?

Awesome; in for one. Specially with a power switch. The earth pin snapped on a different brand I got from Costco 6 years ago!

reviews on amazon average 2 and a half stars : http://www.amazon.com/iGo-PM00012-0001-Green-Power-Smart/dp/B0039KFS2S

Surge protection is a good thing…

Here is how it works…

Nifty, eh?

How many years would I need to use these before recovering the cost of purchase in energy savings?

I wish we had had more surge protectors earlier this summer. A bolt of lightning literally hit my house, and was powerful enough to fry the ground surge protector (I may have the name wrong, it was the one in the fuse box itself), along with multiple electronics - a TV, a Fax machine, 2 aquariums, and an intercom system (that was literally replaced the day before at a significant cost!) to name a few items. Thankfully items that were plugged into surge protectors (mostly PCs) survived the strike undamaged.

You can never have too many surge protectors as far as I’m concerned.

after reading what it actually does, i must say im intrigued…any reviews on this bad boy?

My iGo car/wall charger is incredibly efficient in the car. It draws 0 amps all the time with 100% efficiency. Plugged into the wall, I think a lot of energy goes into making that annoying buzzing noise.

Yeah…no, never again.

Purchased a pair. I have so many iDevices plugged in charging, should bring my electric bill down a bit.

Vampire power is overblown:

I’m pretty sure MythBusters did something on transformer power usage too, and found it to be nearly nothing.

To optimize usage, you should definitely plug in at least two lawn mowers into each surge protector.

Not necessarily. We just had a two for Monday as well.

Based on some of the other products iGo makes, I thought for sure these would have USB ports built in. Bummer.

Did you actually read the positive reviews too that were criticizing the idiots who slapped it with a 1 star? Or did you just jump on the bandwagon and assume that it was a bad product because Amazon reviews said so…
