A surge protector is recommended to equip LED TVs. Basically, a surge protector is an equipment that is designed to keep electrical components safe from current spikes. It serves as a regulator that controls the voltage which is flowing to an electrical appliance. It does this by putting a stop to the voltage’s flow or shorting to ground. This is important to protect LED TVs from over voltages, generally caused by lightning strikes, power outrages and short circuits.
The standard voltage in an average household is 120 V. Anything more than that spells trouble and could damage the components of an electronic device. After spending a great deal of hard-earned money for cinematic experience; it would be a wise decision for LED TV owners to safeguard their investment against circumstances beyond their control. There is a variety of surge protectors in the market that can be purchased to be used as a preventive maintenance measure for LED TV protection.
One of the popular brands that is known to be inexpensive, yet reliable, is the Sanus ELM203.
