Power Strips KV5WS on 13/5/13
I found in the ARRL 2005 Handbook page 3.5 a topic "How Safe are Outlet Strips"? The article indicates that manufacturers accommodate the market with marginal products that are cheap. It goes on to indicate that the nonindicating and poorly designed surge protections also add to the safety hazard of using power strips.

What is considered a good quality power strip? I realize that the power strip should not be used to switch on and off the load, but rather the individual items connected to the strip should be turned on and off.

Thank you for any advice.
