Common events like storms can cause a dangerous surge, permanently damaging your electronics in the process. Even if your current MOV is UL-certified, it could still catch fire. What exactly is a Power Surge? A power surge is a brief spike in your power or TV cable line usually caused by thunderstorms, changes in the power load from appliances going on and off, or problems with your local utility company and the like. What, me worry? You've made a serious investment in your home entertainment system, not to mention your home. Either one or even both can be wiped out in an instant. At a minimum, a surge can reduce the lifespan of your electronic equipment. Sending a sudden jolt of electricity, it can easily short out--destroying all in the process. How does it work? In a power surge, excess energy is absorbed by a component called an MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor.) This component absorbs excess energy and releases that energy as heat. While dissipating excessive heat, sparks and fire can result. Color: Black.
