Peace of Mind

Great product for keeping you safe especially for us reef hobbyists. Water and electricity - bad mix. Once when doing a water change, I had water run down my power cords and right into the outlet. This GFCI right away cut the power off. Very good product in my opinion.

So far.....

New peace of mind comes with this purchase. My toodler recently knocked the aquarium lights into our tank. Thank God he didn't get shocked although I did while removing the lights....... That is why I highly recommend the use of a quality GFI. This Tower Shock Buster Portable GFCI, seems high quality and I have placed my utter confidence in its ability to perform properly. Now to train my son to leave the fish and their tank alone.

Excelent Device

Saved me at least once already. It also told us there was a problem with our old power strip. Even if the device was off it would fault when plugged in. Got a new Zilla Digital Power Center (read that review too) and no more faults. Our city actually requires any circuit used with or near water to have a GFCI installed. With our uber old building it is not an option to replace the receptacles or install a central breaker. This is perfect.

Tower GFCI Outperforms TRC

I purchased the Tower Shock Buster Portable GFCI to replace a TRC ShockShield portable GFCI. After more than 2 weeks of use, the Tower appears to be superior. My main problem with the TRC was that it would trip for no apparent reason on about 20% of the times when used for charging a plug-in hybrid car (up to 10A load). So far, the Tower has only tripped when the Test button was pressed, as it should. The Tower also provides a bright indicator light that can be seen from a distance to verify that it has not tripped.

works

bulky, need one that automatically turn on again after 5 minutes or so instead of having to push a button. Also, an outlet on the side would be nice
