    I have been to a few computer stores where i have seen blown surge protectors, because too many devices have been connected to them. How would I know if my stuff is drawing too much power?

    you are limited to the amperage to the wall plug. in north america it is 15 amps on 14gauge wire. if you are blowing a lot of surge protected power bars it is either the powerbars are on the low end of surge protection or you have bad lines in the house or on the street. check out the specs on an ups to see if that might be better for your situation
