APC's Smart Surge Protector Power Strip is one of the most advanced power strips on the market, and today you can snag one at Amazon for $48.99 — one of its lowest prices yet. We've previously seen it reach $44 with a coupon, and if you're lucky, you may see a 20% coupon to clip on the product page which can bring its price down to just $39.19. However, that offer is only available for select Amazon accounts. It normally sells for up to $60.
This surge protector is much more versatile than most, as it not only includes six surge-protected AC outlets but also four USB charging ports. Half of the outlets and USB ports offer smart functionality, too, allowing you to control three of the outlets and two of the USB ports individually from anywhere in the world using an app on your smartphone.
While you're at home, you can even voice control them using an Amazon Alexa device, like the Echo Dot. It offers 2160 Joules of surge protection with no hub required, unlike other smart home products. Plus, APC backs it up with a lifetime warranty and a $150,000 connected-equipment protection policy.
Speaking of the Echo Dot, it's down to just $25 today thanks to the upcoming Prime Day 2019. That's 50% off its regular price, and one of the few deals available for the big day that you don't need an Amazon Prime membership to snag. Then again, you should still start a free 30-day trial if you don't have one already so you can grab any of the great Prime Day deals that come our way (as well as the ones that are already live).
