    Hey guys,

    I moved to the Philippines and wasn't pleased to find my limited options in surge protectors for the 220/240 Volt options. I really need a surge protector with at least 8 outlets. I fell in love with the Belkin 12 Outlet Pivot Plug that is available in the USA http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-BP1122...d=1346232905&sr=1-3&keywords=belkin+12+outlet. So far I haven't been able to determine if they sell it in a 240 V version but my research says no. :mad:

    ACE Hardware is in the Philippines but they sell only cruddy brands with cruddy designs. I decided I will just have to import something but oddly enough I cannot seem to find a good selection of 220/240 Volt surge protectors. Another problem I'm having is even when I have found a 220/240 SP I like, the outlets aren't the standard US type (The Philippines outlets are compatible with US plugs). So this has made me realize I'm looking for a needle in a haystack. I don't want to purchase a 220/240 SP that requires 9 plug converters (1 for wall and 8 for outlets), that's insane. Just writing this makes me feel like I'm wasting everyone's time because I'm just now realizing I'm stuck with the Filipino brand surge protectors unless I invested in a giant 3000 W step down transformer. I only need a transformer for one product so that would be a waste of money not to mention I would have to get a transformer that a surge protector would work with after what I read earlier today http://www.gson.org/stepdown/

    Well, if anyone knows of a 220/240 surge protector with at least 8 standard US outlets, let me know. I'll be VERY VERY thankful.
