interesting. i kinda thought it was some sort of brown out box that used that large capacitor to maintain a constant voltage out when voltage in was low. how could it be a surge protector? is the capacitor storing the surge?

yes i see that the amps out are 2.1 less than in. this seems inefficient to me that this box would consume that much amps. i would guess that it would also run extremely hot .
