Can I combine one outlet Surge Protector with a 6-outlet power strip


Hello all,

I plan to buy this product Tripp Lite SPIKECUBE Surge Protector Wallmount Direct Plug In 120V 1 Outlet 600

Joulehttp://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-SPIKECUBE-Protector-Wallmount/dp/B00006B81E/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Since it has only one outlet and I want to know whether I can combine it with the 6-Outlet Power Strip
http://www.staples.com/Fellowes-6-Ou...product_387477

In this way, it can protect LCD monitors/PC/printers at the same time.

Q> Does it work? or I can only plug in one appliance for each surge protector?

Thank you

Yes, it would not hurt, but also keep in mind, that you need to not use a Surge with a UPS.

why? it is because that UPS already has such a function?
