    Recently my local surge Protector shows indication of "Neutral open". I need to check all junction box with an electrician.

    Before that, I need buy for Branded Spike/Surge Protector.

    Now confuse to buy with Indicator or without Indicator.

    Pls Suggest.

    Budget 1.5...If good will extend.

    Get any Belkin Surge Protector which are good quality rather going with local ones with LED indicator lights.

    I have four belkin surge protectors. No issues so far. Belkin has "power" and "ground" indicators. I use that MX plug checking device to see if a plug is all okay before I connect anything to it. Maybe not use this to connect other stuff on it, but at least keep and use as an indicator.

    You already bought a 8 socket Surge protector. What's the need of this single one then?
