Every power surge your surge protector absorbs decreases the amount of future joules it absorbs. If that 1000 joule surge protector takes an 1000 joule hit, it’s done for. But it’s also done for if it takes ten 100 joule hits — or if it takes a thousand one joule hits. It’s all cumulative… It’s all about how many joules your surge protector has absorbed. But, the older your surge protector is, the more it’s likely degraded.
In case its marvelous name didn’t clue you in, this is the flagship model of Flexity, LLC. The PowerSquid has 2160 Joules of surge protection and a 15 Amp breaker switch.

As you can see it has six grounded outlets, two of which light up to make it easier to find the outlets in the dark. There are also cable and Ethernet ports at the rear near the 6′ power cord.
