Surge protector


Recommended Posts

I use a surge protector here at home with my laptop. It is a little larger than my laptop and it sits below it. Do I need to bring it with me?

The present is all you own. The past a golden link. Go cruising now my brother, it's later than you think

I've never used one with my laptop and never had problem. It's up to you if you want peace of mind.

Hi Longago,


I would most deffinately say YES! I run an Internet shop here in Pattaya and all of my equipment goes through Anti Surge. The general state of electrical wiring in Pattaya is awful, and prone to power surges. The most likely thing to blow first will be your modem, closely followed by your Wireless adaptor, possibly your power supply, and maybe your hard disk. Many people here dont use them and have no problems, but like the other guys say, up to you! You can buy an mains extension cable in TukCom with built in Anti Surge for around 450 baht.

brownouts cause more damage to computers than power spikes


if you notice that the lights are a flickering, you should run on batteries until you are sure they are stable, maybe let your laptop charge late at night when power usage is more sparse

Don't worry about voltage glitches if you are using laptop. They all have build in surge protection.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
