Practical Advice - Surge Protectors
Shortly after moving to Jamaica, someone asked me if I had bought the special surge protector for refrigerators.
She advised me that there was a specially designed Jamaican device that was not sold in the U.S., and was made to protect against lightning surges.
One of the features of this device is that it has a 10-15 minute delay after a power-cut before it comes back on. I think it is designed this way because a surge is likely to come shortly power is returned to a home.
It is a must-have.
