Lights, Outlets, Action!
Since you're using this surge protector to power all of your important electronic devices, it needs to be visible. While our designers opted for a sleek black color to prevent it from clashing with your other office materials, they also included an illuminated on/off reset switch. This design addition makes the surge protector easy to find under your desk.
An illuminated green light means that the receptacle has found a Ground reference, which is essential for surge protection because Ground is the only exit pathway for any surge in current. If the green light is not illuminated, it indicates there is no Ground reference, meaning no surge protection. The red light indicates that the surge protection elements are successfully working. If the red light dims or extinguishes, you will know that the surge protector is no longer protecting your equipment.
