    Spike busters are like Single Input -- Multiple Output.

    You use it when you need many sockets but have one (or limited electrical socket points). Now go figure how to get ADSL and UPS together using spike buster.

    Spike buster is used to protect electronic devices from spikes in the AC voltage. Any vg surge may damage ur computer and thats why a Spike guard\buster is actually used. Whenever ther is a surge in vg the fuse in the spike guard blows nd ur pc is protected.

    > Spike gaurd
    Aka:
    Spike buster
    Fused Extention
    Surge protector/buster/gaurd

    its basically a extention with a fuse. It can block out harmfull spikes or surges [bursts of current] hence used to protect sensetive electrinoc devices.


    My suggestion get a good quality one with a 15A socket for your computer not a substandard one as a malufunction could damage your system.

    spike busters are essentially devices used to protect our electronic devices from sudden surge in voltage, which may fry the electronic devices in the absence of a spike buster. Actually it contains a fuse wire. It also shows whether proper earthing is available or not. It is highly recommended to have one. They are cheap also. |Around Rs.150/- per piece.

    ASDL is not in your hand. if the connection junction is without power you maynot be able to connect.
