Lightning Season

Now that we are approaching the summer months, it is a good time to remember that lightning is not friendly to electronic devices. We typically see a large number of power supplies, DSL modems, and cable modems fail during these months due to lightning-related events. If you live in an area that is prone to frequent lightning strikes, you should consider making it convenient to unplug your devices from outlets, phone lines, or cable lines during strong storms. This will help protect these devices in the event of a nearby lightning strike. Regardless of where you live, all of your electronic devices should be plugged into a power strip that is rated for surge protection as your first line of defense.
