Just make sure with these types of devices you have Surge Protection!

...Because without that, you may not need any plug for any device...anymore...

No worries. This surge suppressor with 10 outlets has phone protection and coaxial protection. It cost about 25USD. So a pretty high-class surge supressor.

Plus I live in Florida, the lightning capitol of the world.

I am constantly preaching to other users to use surge protection, especially the one who had the shorted video card. I thought that was lightning damage, but it was just a short that happened with clear skies.
