Versatile Protection for All Electronics
The TLP78TUSBG's timer function enables you to set timers that automatically turn connected devices on and off based on your settings, making it ideal for light fixtures, desktop computers and other devices that you use at regular intervals. Plus, the outlets are arranged in two separate banks, meaning you can set multiple timers for equipment on different schedules. The TLP78TUSBG offers cost-effective surge protection and performance enhancement, seven AC outlets and an eight-foot cord, enabling it to be connected to a distant wall outlet. Four built-in LEDs confirm surge protection present and safe ground status for each outlet bank.

Save On Your Electric Bill by Eliminating Phantom Loads

Save On Your Electric Bill by Eliminating Phantom Loads
Each power adapter and glowing LED in your home or office represents a potential "phantom load"—power wasted by a device when it isn't being used, even when it appears to be turned off. The TLP78TUSBG's seven ECO-Surge outlets eliminate phantom loads by enabling users to set the exact time at which devices are turned on and off, based on time of day and day of the week. The energy-saving outlets disconnect phantom loads from any source of electricity, making it impossible for them to waste energy. Plus, with two separate outlet banks, you can set multiple timers for different electronics.

USB Charging Capability
In addition to providing your notebook and peripherals with power protection, the TLP78TUSBG also offers the convenience of USB charging. Two USB ports let you charge your cell phone, PDA, MP3 player and other portable electronics whenever the TLP78TUSBG is plugged into a wall outlet.

Premium Safety Features

Premium Safety Features
Four diagnostic LEDs (GROUNDED, PROTECTED, Timer Bank 1 and Timer Bank 2) assure power and protection status for each outlet bank. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components and the integrated circuit breaker prevents dangerous overloads.

Powerful AC Line Surge Suppression
The TLP78TUSBG features 2100 joules of surge suppression to prevent even the strongest surges from damaging your valuable electronics. A total of seven AC outlets, arranged to accommodate a bulky transformer without blocking remaining outlets, provide protection for multiple components.
