    I'm thinking of buying a mini-surge protector for my 13" MBP.

    I would like to know what's the difference between these 3 Belkin choices. (They all look very similar to me)

    1. Belkin Mini Surge Protector Dual USB Charger --- $10.88

    2.Belkin BZ103050vTVL Mini Surge Protector/Dual USB Charger -- $15.23
    http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-BZ1030...2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1279221320&sr=8-2

    3. Belkin Mini Surge 3OUT Wall Mount 75K 918J with USB Charger -- $15.23

    just get the cheapest one

    there's practically no difference

    don't forget free amazon prime for .edu email addresses

    Find someone with a .edu address (university), the prime runs off of the normal amazon account. They simply send a link to the .edu address to verify, after that you simply use you normal amazon account ( ex. *****@gmail or *****@hotmail account)

    free year of prime comes in handy

    I think I already have an .edu address. In what part of amazon exactly can I apply for this?

    I have two of the Belkin Mini Surge Protectors, I like them a lot. The USB charging ports are great if you have a iPhone and a iPod. And it gives me piece of mind when in airports and other places with sketchy outlets.
