Worried about plugging your laptop into a sketchy power outlet when traveling but don’t want to carry around a bulky surge protecting power bar wherever you go? These tiny ElectraShields connect between your laptop’s power cord and power brick and feature an indicator light letting you know it’s protecting your hardware from power surges.
When the light’s gone out, you’ll know that a potentially harmful surge has occurred, but instead of sending your laptop in for repairs you’ll simply have to replace the ElectraShields since they don’t feature a reset button. But at just $9.95 each from X-treme Geeks that’s not so painful.
