Review of the TrickleStar 4 Outlet Advanced PowerTap

Many electronic devices such as TVs, computers, and other appliances draw power even when turned off or in standby mode. The power an electrical device sucks while it is switched off is sometimes called "vampire power" or "vampire draw." This invisible power usage is wasteful and can noticeably raise your electricity bill.

The TrickleStar 4 Outlet Advanced PowerTap reduces the amount of standby power your TV or computer consumes. Apart from being an energy saver, the smart PowerTap is also a premium surge protector. A good surge protector should be able to block 1000 joules and 40000 amperes. The TrickleStar 4 Outlet Advanced PowerTap can take 2160 joules or 144000 amperes, making it an excellent choice for protecting your electronics from surges.

Impressive Design

The TrickleStar 4 Outlet Advanced PowerTap is heavy for its size. The cover is made of hard, durable plastic. It incorporates advanced surge protection technology. The circuitry is encased in ceramic casing that makes it fireproof and enables it to dissipate heat faster. It has four power outlets, two on the front of the device and one on each side. This configuration gives you enough room to plug in your electrical appliances without congestion issues.

The TrickleStar Advanced PowerTap has LED indicators on top to indicate different statuses, including surge, control, and always-on outlet status.

It features coax and RJ11/RJ45 surge protection as well. You can use the TrickleStar Smart PowerTap as a secondary surge protector for your computer, telephone, or fax machine and to filter noise from coax.
