Are Computers Safe When Plugged into Home Electrical Outlets

How to Protect Computers and Home Electronics with Power Conditioning and Surge Protection…

Computers and Home Electrical Outlet Power Quality

Home Electrical Question
Would a home electrical outlet have any affect of the laptops performance when plugged into the wall outlet? We use the outlet in our kitchen wall and have for about 1 year with our laptop computer. Last week, our laptop just froze, would not respond to any commands even after taking the battery out and etc. Our son who works on computers suggested it maybe our outlet plug in the kitchen interfering with the performance and causing the problems. Is this true?

This electrical question came from: Libby, a Homeowner from Cumming, Georgia.

Power Conditioning and Surge Protection

A surge protective device protects your laptops and computers as well as other electrical wiring equipment and appliances from voltage surges and spikes that interfere with their normal operation.

These surges can cause immediate physical damage to your appliances, electronics and electrical wiring, wear them down over time or create interferences that cause them to malfunction.
