Monster® Power Protects Your Home and Family

Power surges can be serious. Not only could you lose your home entertainment system and home office electronics -- you could lose your home. Standard surge protectors account for 37% of all home electrical fires. Protect your electronics from storms and surges with Monster Power. Only Monster has Fireproof MOV™ Technology that protects more than just your electronics, but also your home and family. The Core Power 800 Surge Protector features 1440 Joules of protection.

The Safer Power Protection

Is your equipment and your home at risk? Common events like storms can cause a dangerous surge, permanently damaging your electronics in the process. Even if your current MOV is UL-certified, it could still catch fire.

How does it work?

In a power surge, excess energy is absorbed by a component called an MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor.) This component absorbs excess energy and releases that energy as heat. While dissipating excessive heat, sparks and fire can result.

Monster Offers Safer Power Protection with FireProof MOV Technology

Yes, because we encase our MOV’s in a specially engineered ceramic material that will not catch fire during a power surge, making it your best defense against fire. Monster Power Protection is equipped with Monster® FireProof TMMOV Technology.

Better Sound and Picture too?

The power in your home is subject to interference or noise that can be seen and heard on your system. Our surge protectors include Monster Clean Power® technology to help ensure that your components perform at peak levels.

Prolong the Life of Your Equipment
You've made a serious investment in your home entertainment system, not to mention your home. One or both can be wiped out in an instant. At a minimum, a surge can reduce the lifespan of your electronic equipment. Sending a sudden jolt of electricity, it can easily short out--destroying all in the process. Our Connected Equipment Warranty offers $250,000 worth of coverage for any device connected to the 800 that is damaged due to negative power conditions, including antenna, satellite, and cable connected to either of the coaxial inputs.

  • Q:

    Will this also work as a power conditioner? I need cleaner, more stable power.

      This will protect against surges and spikes only. For clean power we recommend the Black Platinum series.
