Surge Protection For Your Valuable Electrical Equipment - Crest Giveaway


Brisbane is known for its bright sunny days. It is also known for its quite fierce summer thunderstorms. The humidity builds up all day. It gets steamier and warmer. At about 2.30pm if you are lucky, the clouds roll in, thick and black, and you are treated to a Queensland thunderstorm in all its glory. The lightning flashes and the thunder booms and then the drenching rain comes and soaks the hot ground. Usually right at school pick up time! It gives some relief to the heat for a brief while. If I think of a smell that is distinctly Brisbane, it is that smell. Rain on hot sun-baked roads. Sort of a hot, damp, dusty smell.




I do love a good storm.

But our house seems to have very finicky electrical system. We suffer numerous brown outs and the safety switch in the power box clicks off at the drop of a hat. Very frustrating! But apart from the irritating factor it is not at all good for our electrical goods. The television, fridge, stereo system, air conditioner, computers, and other expensive things have all suffered at the hands of this house. It doesn’t have to be a direct lightning hit to cause damage either. We live near the train line and sometimes an electric train flying past can affect our electricity!

Something that I wish we had realised a lot earlier, is the fact that a good quality surge protection device is an absolute essential item to have, when there are power fluctuations and electricity spikes and storms and trains that do funny things to your power supply.

Did you know that nearly all home and contents insurance policies don’t cover damage caused by a power fluctuation unless you can prove that lightning was the sole cause of the damage? This means that you can be left out of pocket when you need to replace your damaged appliances. Not good.

Crest power management range offers you quality surge protection for your valuable electrical things. It provides round the clock protection for the things that you tend to leave switched on like the fridge and the television. It react super-fast and has indicator lights that let you know when they are not working as they should be. Crest also provides a Connected Equipment Warranty for extra peace of mind.

Now almost all of our electrical items have a surge protection plug, and it does provide peace of mind to know that you can prevent unpredictable damage being done by power spikes and surges.

Crest is available at Target, Big W, Woolworths, The Good Guys, Bing Lee and major independent electrical specialists like Betta Electrical. 

Now, with thanks to Crest, I have the chance to get someone else storm ready!




I have a product pack to giveaway!  This includes 1 x single, 1 x double and 1 x 4 socket surge board with antenna protection per kit.

This competition will run from now until 18 December, 2013 at 12am, so get your entry in nice and quickly.

Open to Australian residents only. One entry per person and judges decision is final.

Just enter via the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win.



All the best!

  1. Our power boards could use some updating. i'm sure i have some without the power surge protection on them. The warning indicators would be a great peace of mind too. Better put some adapters on the shopping list, electrical storm here last week is still in my mind.

  6. I'm living in a rented apartment which doesn't have many power outlets. This means I have power board on top of power board, full of plugs connected to equipment. I am often worried I have too much coming from one outlet and I'm always meaning to purchase a surge board!

  7. I would actually give this to my parents; they are pensioners and can't afford to update their electrical plugs/adapters. Of course, I would have peace of mind knowing they would have safe, reputable products in their home. Thanks for the opportunity, and Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones Melanie!

  8. I also live near Brisbane and we've had some fantastic storms lately, wreaking havoc with the electronics. We run a small business from home, so this is very important to us.

  9. I've also experienced some pretty spectacular storms lately. We run a small business from home, so power outages can result in lost work and files.

  14. We have had 9 hail storms in the past year...so when we leave the home and we think there is a chance of a hail storm we walk around the house unplugging all the expensive house appliances incase we get a power surge and it blows every thing up. The pack would save us the time & Stress of worrying about it every day and would have peace of mind.
