The other day I was doing laundry and found $5 in a pocket. It’s happened to you, so you understand my glee.

Now imagine finding the same sum in five different pockets (assuming it was a pair of parachute pants)—that’s the same magic that APC is offering in its new Power-Saving SurgeArrest.

APC says that their new surge protector packs enough energy efficiency to save up to $25 a year. Sure, you may have the same amount lingering in couch cushions, but every little bit helps.

The APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest is being billed as an energy-efficient savior from surges and spikes. The unit includes features master/controlled outlets, which reduce consumption by cutting off power to unused peripherals—and can save you money.

Speaking of money, the SurgeArrest doesn’t cost a lot of it; it’s available now for $34.99.
