    If you cannot find Tripp-Lite surge protectors, you may wish to contemplate UPS systems.

    You will probably want to protect more than just the PC.

    You might also want to consider a voltage conditioner

    what do you think of this one? the rectangular style was over double the price and i'm not sure why. https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Ri...HQFXJJ25PHPNWY

    heres the expensive one. worth it? https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Pr...70_&dpSrc=srch

    but it seems like the most efficient way is to put this on the wall and plug cheap regular power strips into it. https://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-Pr...DY13KESDN&th=1

    The non-isobar/ISOBLOK are nothing special. They're just surge strips.

    The Isobar

    * 2 outlet model can handle 1410 J

    * 4, 6 outlet 3330 J

    * 8 outlet 3840 J

    I would avoid the direct plug-in model as they seem to fall apart, although none of mine have.

    They include a fancy filtering circuit.

    All are Tripp Lite, which is nice. The first suppresses only 3240 joules. The second suppresses 3840 joules. The third suppresses only 1410 joules.

    This (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000511U7) also suppresses 3840 joules, which seems to be the max.

    Isobar Ultra are now 3rd generation with the reset breaker no longer separate from the switch.

    The old generations came with either 12 amp or 15 amp separate resettable breakers.

    thanks for the info. i was wondering what makes the isobar better than others. it sounds like each plug is isolated from the rest instead of them all being protected as one, if i understand correctly.
