Energy SmartPower™ home theatre surge protectors save you money


TORONTO, ON., November 18, 2010 – Gentec International is pleased to announce its new line of Energy SmartPower™ home theatre surge protectors, innovative products that save you money by utilizing leading energy-saving technology to automatically turn off outlets and prevent standby power waste.

Standby power is electricity consumed by electronic devices even when turned off (televisions, home theatre systems, computers, monitors). Using a surge protector with energy-saving technology can help you save up to 15% on your electricity use.

Equipped with Energy’s exclusive PurePower™ filter, all SmartPower™ surge protectors eliminate harmful EMI-RFI noise to deliver clean uninterrupted power and ensure maximum performance and protection.

They also provide powerful surge protection. Specifically designed for home theatre use, all SmartPower™ products are guaranteed to protect your devices in the event of a surge or power spike. With up to 3,600 Joules of protection for your power, network, cable/satellite, and telephone line connections, you can be confident that all your devices are safe from the unexpected.

The compact ESP100 plugs directly into a wall outlet, providing 4 outlets and 2,160 Joules of protection, and has a suggested retail price of $49.99. The ESP200 power bar offers 6 outlets, 2,160 Joules of protection, and has a suggested retail price of $69.99. The powerful ESP300 includes 8 outlets, 3,600 Joules of protection, and has a suggested retail price of $99.99. Both the ESP200 and ESP300 also feature a heavy-duty power cord with a flat, space-saving, rotating plug for maximum versatility.
