    I bought a Belkin surge suppressor travel plug with ac and dc on Amazon in 2010.
    It says it has a lifetime warranty. and you can claim the value of the stuff it fries.
    Is this right??? if it fries an XM radio again I can get them to replace it..??? Anyone know anything about this..???

    This thread has nothing to do with buying or selling hardware, so I have moved it out of the Flea Market forum.

    As to your problem, this sounds to me like it should be covered by warranty, but other people may easily have more expertise. Don't sit on it too long though.

    They'll probably want proof of purchase for everything involved, start looking for it now :eek:

    Actually, in the case of lightning strikes, an electrician usually certifies the things that were blown up. This is when you are using home owners insurance.

    Very true Bill. I signed quite a few affidavits concerning lightning damage to electronic equipment.

    I did notice the power supply bridge diodes that typically opened were the two connected to the return side of the power.

    Some where is my posting about plasma T.V.,I had stopped by a T.V.

    shop that was doing a lot of plasma work.I didn't ask,but in conversation

    the owner mentioned forms that the power company was paying direct.

    Things like that you remember, a power company paying,that would be new.

    I had seen a lot of strikes that followed from the mast thru the house ripping

    walls to the back of the T.V. no doubt about it. It depended on the insurance

    company some would ok over the phone,the policy holder would pay me direct.
