Belkin International But in recent years they have expanded into a wide variety of consumer products. After it had been plugged in for a few hours, I tested f65c50-avr by unplugging it from the wall.

And also see this update to that review. One was a fairly trivial little item, the F9H Surgemaster power blkin. I’ve always assumed Belkin’s expansion was driven, at least in part, by the success of Monster Cablewhich has made a lot of money selling expensive cables that in my opinion, at least are not always worth f6f550-avr price. I simply wasn’t going to give it the chance to stink up my car in order to return it.

That can lead to problems with product quality, customer support, and other critical business functions. I have no idea whether it went that way or not, blekin at least it’s a sensible theory.

That’s clear evidence that the switchover time from AC power to the internal battery isn’t as short as it ought to be. But when I plugged in the first one, it immediately made a loud snapping sound inside and released a puff of vile-smelling smoke.

They made good cables, and still do. The company seems to be introducing new product lines faster than some companies introduce new products. I sometimes wonder sometimes if Belkin isn’t expanding too quickly.

Maybe the current models work fine; I don’t know. But I’ve continued to buy Belkin products, including several audio and video cables and a USB hub that I’ve had no problems with. The Belkin product was, by far, the cheapest model that offered an alarm disable function. The TuneTalk Stereo was incorrectly marketed as compatible with the newly-released iPod classicand although Belkin advised me that an upcoming iPod update would likely restore compatibility with the classic, my TuneTalk Stereo still eblkin fully functional.

Anyway, I got the Belkin model home and hooked it up to my XO-1, my alarm clock, the charger for my Palm Treo, and a 20W flourescent lamp. But in recent years they have expanded into a wide variety of consumer products. I imagine Belkin’s engineering-oriented management deciding that selling well-engineered cables at a reasonable price would provide effective competition for Monster’s marketing-focused strategy. I didn’t return this product either, since it meets my simple needs in this application.

I remember when Belkin was basically nothing but a cable company, and by that, I mean a company that makes electrical and optical cables. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.

I needed a power strip so I could plug in some “wall wart” power supplies that wouldn’t fit on the back of a UPS, and this product was the cheapest power strip with surge suppression available at my local Home Depot.

I was so eager to get it out of the house that I immediately wrapped it up in the Home Depot bag and took it out to the trash. I like the Belkin company.

Subsequent testing produced the same result. Unfortunately, just this week I’ve bought two Belkin products that didn’t live up to my expectations.

But I have to admit I’m going to be a little less likely to buy Belkin products going forward.
