A standard surge protector passes the electrical current along the outlet to the devices plugged into the power strip. When the voltage increases above the acceptable level, the protector will direct the extra electricity into the outlet’s grounding wire. Grounding wires run parallel to the hot and neutral wires and provide a pathway for electrical current.  

You should note that not all power strips are surge protectors. They look similar, but power strips are used to add extra outlet space.

In addition, not all surge protectors are the same. They have a certain amount of surge that they can protect you from. The protection is measured in joules, which allows for determining how much energy passes through. If the surge protector is under-sized, your devices may be still damaged due to a big power surge. An under-sized surge protector is a simple power strip and it won’t save any devices.
