    You should probably plug all your electronics into surge supressors. This includes the speakers or printer you may have attached to the AirPort Express. Better safe than sorry.

    I also recommend surge protector. I have 2 Belkins' back-up battery/surge protector units (550 V and 900 V) for all of my computer equipment. These units also clean the electric voltage/current so that all my computer equipment gets the clean electric current.

    Even when I travel, I carry one of those surge protectors so that I can use it when I plug in my notebooks (and Airport Express base station) in a hotel.

    There is a compact one that "stays" on the wall, it's by APC, the only company I would EVER buy a surge protector from. I have that one of those for my stereo system. Mind you I have 6-7 APC surge protectors in the house including a UPS for my VAIO desktop and their quality is outstanding and their prices are excellent compared to Monstercrap, etc...
