How Does Lightning Damage Computerized, Electronic & Electrical Equipment?

Lightning travels to ground along the path of least resistance and this means that in your home (or office), this is through the telephone or electrical lines, which are vulnerable to lightning strikes, as well as power voltage spikes or dips. Your electronic devices stand in the way as the electrical surge travels 'at lightning speeds' (in nano-seconds actually) along the electrical or telephone lines. If it serves you, protect it! And the best way of doing this is with a high quality, high protection SPD (Surge Protection Device) from Africa Surge.
