    Default power strips

    I need some help. I'm looking for some good resource material(s) on the safe use of power strips which have built-in breakers. There have been alot of recalls on these things, and sometimes they seem to be more dangerous than extension cords. What I'd like to reference is a good explanation on how a power strip works, and at what point does the circuit breaker actually trip. I'd appreciate any help you can render.

    Hi Codeman. Maybe try the Underwriters Lab web site, or call them.
