TLP1208TEL Protect It! Surge Protector

It could happen in the blink of an eye: a sudden power surge that damages or destroys your valuable audio/video equipment. And even if a catastrophic surge never strikes, smaller power fluctuations and electromagnetic line noise can cause incremental hardware damage, performance problems and data loss. In one compact, cost-effective unit, Tripp Lite's TLP1208TEL Protect It! Surge Protector provides comprehensive protection and performance enhancement for your PC, peripherals and all electronics. It features a high 2160-joule surge suppression rating to protect your equipment from even the strongest surges. A set of 1-in, 2-out RJ11 tel/modem jacks safeguards two additional devices from “back door” dataline surges. The TLP1208TEL also filters out disruptive line noise that can degrade component performance so that equipment performs at its peak. The TLP1208TEL comes with $150,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance protection for connected equipment (USA and Canada only), and a lifetime product warranty.

TLP1208TEL Feature Focus

TLP1208TEL in Use

Versatile Protection for All Electronics

The TLP1208TEL offers cost-effective surge protection and performance enhancement for PCs, peripheral devices and all electronics. It provides 12 5-15R outlets with built-in safety covers, including 4 widely spaced outlets that accommodate bulky transformers without blocking other outlets. An 8-ft. cord enables connection to a distant wall outlet and a space-saving right-angle plug allows furniture to be placed flush against the wall. Four keyhole slots on the rear of the housing allow the TLP1208TEL to be wall mounted.

Phone Line Surge Protection

Phone connections represent a potential back door through which a damaging surge could reach your equipment. The TLP1208TEL’s tel/DSL (RJ11) jacks prevent surges from damaging your modem/fax/phone equipment (6-ft. telephone cord included). A built-in splitter enables you to protect two devices that share a single phone line.

Improved Component Performance

Various electromagnetic and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The TLP1208TEL incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment, and helping to assure peak audio and video performance.

Highest-in-Class AC Line Surge Suppression With Built-In Diagnostic Capability

The TLP1208TEL features the highest surge protection rating in its class—2160 joules—to prevent even the strongest surges from damaging your valuable electronics. Includes full normal mode (H-N) and common mode (N-G/H-G) line surge suppression. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components, and 2 diagnostic LEDs (GROUNDED & PROTECTED) show power and protection status so users can recognize power problems right away. If the green PROTECTED LED ever goes out, simply return the TLP1208TEL to Tripp Lite for a free replacement.

What's in the Box?

Lifetime Product Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design

The TLP1208TEL is backed by a lifetime warranty against damage due to surges and comes with $150,000 of Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (USA and Canada only). As part of Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility, the TLP1208TEL is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications.

  • Advanced surge protection for all home and office electronics
  • 2160-joule surge suppression rating
  • 12 surge-protected AC outlets plus tel/DSL line protection; 8-ft. cord
  • $150,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment
  • Lifetime product warranty

Style Name: 10 Outlet + TEL/TV Verified Purchase
We had a flood at our office and the Tripp Lite surge protector was on the floor, so it grounded out and melted completely. But we have not had a single problem with any of the electrical devices that were plugged into it! So I bought another one to replace it and I'll never use any other brand. I only wish they came with shorter cords, as this is a lot of cord to keep under the desk.

But we learned a good lesson: try to mount your surge protector instead of leaving them on the floor!

UPDATE: We sent the picture of the melted protector to Tripp Lite to thank them for a great product. They responded that we were entitled to a new one under our warranty, and even though we hadn't asked for one and couldn't give them any information on the old one (we had tossed it during the flood cleanup) they sent a brand new one that arrived today! As I said, I'm never buying any other product. This is one company that really stands by its products. Thanks, Tripp Lite.

This review is for the "Tripp Lite HT10DBS Home Theater Isobar Surge Protector"

OVERVIEW:
-----------

The HT10DBS is a well-reviewed, high quality value sweet spot among premium surge protectors. It offers UL 1449 3rd Edition verified surge protection with decent EMI/RFI AC line noise protection.

This is a premium AV surge protector offering from a company that takes surge protection seriously.

NEW TECHNICAL DETAIL:
[03/2014]
------------------------

(1) EMI/RF AC NOISE ATTENUATION

Although HT10DBS specs say 60dB EMI/RFI AC line NOISE ATTENUATION, Tripp Lite engineering says that with current units the outlets CLOSEST TO THE POWER CORD are 80dB and those furthest away are 50dB. So clearly we want components most likely to benefit from noise attenuation plugged into outlets closest to the power cord.

(2) MORE ISOLATED FILTER BANKS

Tripp Lite engineering says that current units have 5 ISOLATED FILTER BANKS, that each outlet pair is its own isolated filter bank like most of the ISOBAR/ISOTEL units. They said it used to be 3 and before that 2.

If these two technical details are accurate, it makes the HT10DBS more competitive with other models of the ISOBAR/ISOTEL line. It would now be an alternative to ISOBAR/ISOTEL for those who might just get it as an ISOBAR/ISOTEL with 10 outlets and greater spacing convenience, with the upgraded EMI-RFI noise reduction being just icing on the cake.

MISC. DETAILS:
---------------

(1) Ethernet line (RJ45) surge protection is, like most RJ45 consumer surge protection these days, not for gigabit speed ethernet, it is for up to 100baseT. I confirmed with the company.

FIRST - YES, IT IS EXTREMELY HARD TO PLUG THINGS INTO THIS SURGE PROTECTOR INITIALLY. But, there is a way to fix this. The first time plugging anything into this surge protector is very difficult. But once this initial resistance is "broken", future plug ins are very easy! I would highly recommend (before using the surge protector) plugging the item's own 3 prong cord into each outlet until that initial plug resistance is broken. I found it easier to break the resistance by wiggling the plug side to side parallel to the long axis of the surge protector whilst pushing down. The connect is very tight and feels very secure even AFTER this initial break in period.

The built in outlet safety covers are very handy and easy to use. They slide back and forth with a nice click at each position. These covers are so easy to use, that a child could operate them...

Also, included with the item are 2 cords/cables: 1 telephone cord and 1 cable tv/antennae cable. This, if anything, should encourage you to use the cable and telephone surge suppression features of this unit.

The power cord is of the right angle/low profile variety. It is quite long and pretty easy to bend into shape.

The construction seems nice, but it sure doesn't feel like a Tripp Lite Isobar. But then again, it is prettier.

My only complaint so far is that 8 outlets along the one edge are VERY close together. So close that it is hard to place 2 usb/plug type adapters next to each other - such as an iPhone charger/usb plug next to a iPad charger/usb plug. Anything bigger than a standard 3 prong cord might get a little tight. I suppose you could alternate a charger/plug next to a typical 3 prong plug.

This surge protector was recommended by several audio and home theatre internet sites. It's solid in construction and is aesthetically pleasing. There are three indicator lights that serve as a heads up as to wether the surge protector is working properly or not. The 10 outlets are labeled (DVD, Amp, receiver,CBL/SAT, etc.). It also comes with additional labels if you have two of any electronic device or do not like the label arrangment on the surge protector. The outlets are spaced out so its easy to fit as many as 6 transformers onto the surge protector. On the side of the surge protector are inputs for a phoneline and an internet line. The device also allows protection for up to three coaxial cables. The output Watt capacity is 1440 watts. This surge protector has allowed me to safely and adequately protect everything in my room. It is great if you want to organize all the wires behind a desk or TV/audio stand. I am thoroughly impressed with the device and would recommend it to anyone.
