What to do with Monster power adapter?


Standard Member

When I bought my 3D LED TV, I was sold a Monster power adapter to regulate current to protect TV against power surges etc.

I'm now fitting TV to wall mount on chimney breast and extending the ring mains up and down the sides of the chimney breast so the AV equipment (DVD, Xbox, Sky box, Wii, Playstation, Router etc) will access plug sockets on the shelf they are on.

Is the monster power adapter essential or will it be ok to fit a power socket behind the TV and just nt use the power adapter altogether?

many thanks

The chances of a power surge are slim, I've never heard of anyone I know having one in my lifetime, and if you do have one and blow your tv it's a good time to upgrade using the insurance!
