Protect your tech
When school is in session, there are multiple drills to ensure the safety of students. Fire drills, Tornado drills, and intruder drills all provide a safe environment and workplace for students and teachers. The same can be said for surge protectors ensuring the safety of yourself and your devices.
Having a safe workspace is just as important as having a productive one. Picture this: you set up a charging station for your workspace and have multiple devices plugged into an extension cord without surge protection. One power surge, and all of your devices are fried and that almost finished book report is lost forever. An easy way to prevent this from becoming a reality is to use a Cordinate extension cord with surge protection. As an added bonus these cords actually look great too. The braided cords are available in multiple colors and allow you to finish off your aesthetically pleasing yet productive workspace.
