This is one of the main reason I purchased this, while many good brands have surge protection, the value are not as high. A higher value means the expensive devices connected to it are relatively safer / protected.
The USB charger points are a plus so I only need the cable to charge my phones / accessories. And it charges super-fast compared to the other chargers.
I'm quite happy with it as it met all my requirements.
Where it could improve: - The socket isn't as smooth as a Belkin or GM branded product. The first time you'll need to push your plug in with good force, which is the only major issue. (Imagine if you have a plug, which is not strong...) - The green Light indicator could be quite bright at night/dark. (well some like it that way, so this is just a preference not exactly a drawback)
