How do surge protectors work?

Protecting Yourself

A surge protector is an efficient way in which to protect your computer and computer accessories from sudden surges in electricity. These surges can send a bolt of electricity throughout your computer resulting in damage to essential parts such as the hard drive or motherboard.
