Powerful electric surges are capable of doing more than just destroying your Xbox or charging smartphone. When strong enough, they can actually cause fires, which puts more than just material items at risk. That’s why using a surge protector is so important.

Surge protectors keep your electronics (and home) safe by limiting the voltage supplied to a device. Once an undesirable amount of electricity spikes, the surge protector either blocks or reroutes the energy to the ground. This keeps the electricity from continuing on its journey to sparking a fire from or damaging any connected devices. The only downside of using a surge protector is that they’re rather ugly.

So instead of filling your home or office with a bunch of necessary eyesores, you can keep up your cutesy aesthetic with this BESTEK surge protector. Just as a mama bear protects her cubs, this little accessory will help keep your devices from being burnt out. Designed with four outlets and two USB plugs, there’s enough space to keep all your electronics safe.

The limited edition surge protector comes in two colors: blue and brown. And it’s available through Amazon for just over $20, which is a small price to pay for (cute) protection.
