Accell Unveils New GreenGenius™ Smarter Power Smart Surge Protectors

GreenGenius smart surge protectors turn off power to unused devices, saving consumers valuable energy and money

Fremont, Calif. - July 30, 2013 - Accell, a provider of premium audio video, computer and mobile device accessories, today announced the latest additions to the company's power-saving product lines, the GreenGenius smart surge protectors. Available in both eight and 10 outlets, the eight outlet surge protector features two USB charging ports and 2160 joules of surge protection, whereas the 10 outlet features 3240 joules of surge protection. With an MSRP of $44.99 for each model, the GreenGenius is available now.

Most electronic devices draw power when idle, in standby mode, or even when powered off, exposing connected devices to potential damage from a power surge. According to the US Department of Energy, studies show that 15% of the energy a household uses is for standby current. With its Power Stop technology, the GreenGenius automatically stops conducting power once the absorption has reached.

Accell's GreenGenius features advanced X3 MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) technology that provides the safest surge protection by detecting surge conditions and reacts by directing excess energy away from equipment through the electrical grounding system. This advanced technology fully protects connected equipment from fire hazard during an abnormal surge event and provides longer protection lifespan than regular MOV.

The GreenGenius smart surge protectors feature the following:

• Flexible six feet grounded power cord
• X3 MOV Fireproof technology
• Power stop surge capacity detection
• Ground and protected indicator light
• Switch disables Auto-Switching function
• Sliding safety covers
• Ethernet and phone line protection
• Two pairs of coaxial port protection (10 outlet model)
