Importance of a surge protector

Surge protectors are vital in South Africa, where prevailing load-shedding can wreak havoc on household appliances.

When the power returns after scheduled or unscheduled cuts, it can feed voltages into your home that are either too high or too low.

Undervoltage increases your amps, which causes your appliance’s components to malfunction, while overvoltage can cause them to short out. Either way, if the voltage is too far out of its normal range, it significantly reduces the lifespan of your appliances.

The Gizzu Universal Surge Protector Plug protects your appliances – such as your new Defy fridge – from these abnormal fluctuations by cutting off the power supply to your fridge if the voltage exceeds harmful limits.

It will also temporarily delay the startup of your appliances when the power returns after an outage to ensure the grid supply has time to stabilise.
