    Looks like it can handle around 300 J, not a lot

    Now
    https://www.amazon.com/Surge-101/b/r...d_i=B00P2GW7MG

    claims

    "Over 50% of equipment failure can be attributed to power surge/failure"

    and also suggests a computer needs 2,000 J or more protection

    The Tripp-Lite isobar 8 has 3,840 J ability

    I personally prefer a metal casing (as a fire precaution), and would not suggest anything cheap.

    Do you consider it good enough?

    Also can you try to find one on the site that I linked you, please?

    I think you need 220V, this was just an example for 110V; I would have gone for more outlets and more surge ability
