Austere, manufacturer of premium A/V accessories, cables, and Clean & Protect, is introducing a line of full-featured, low-profile 4-outlet surge protectors. Designed to fit discreetly in the tightest of spaces, near furniture, or behind wall-mounted TVs, Austere’s new VII Series ($129.99), V Series ($99.99), and III Series ($79.99) sit flush with the wall for an elegant and unobtrusive appearance.
Austere believes how a product looks is just as important as what it does. The company’s aDesign philosophy elevates function through purposeful engineering and minimalistic design. With the same proven technologies that define the Austere brand, the new models feature durable, fireproof enclosures finished with a distinctive linear texture and Flameless MOV protection which gives you peace of mind that powerful surges will not result in a dangerous fire. Austere’s signature three blue LED lights ensure power, proper grounding, and surge protection.
Austere surge protection regulates the power coming from the outside powerline which guarantees devices will not burn out from a high voltage spike that can be harmful to your equipment. Each unit features Austere’s OverCurrent protection preventing circuit overload which could cause devices to short-circuit or create dangerous temperatures that may lead to a fire.
OmniPort USB rapid charging ports are included for portable devices and gaming accessories. The V Series and VII Series include Power Delivery (PD) USB ports, the quickest, most efficient way to charge compatible devices.
Austere stands behind its Power: A Lifetime Guarantee and a Component Guarantee. The Austere Lifetime Guarantee ensures satisfaction with performance. The Austere Component Guarantee promises if Austere Power is responsible for any damage to a plugged-in device, Austere will replace that device regardless of its value, up to 6 years for the VII Series, 5 years for the V Series, and 4 years for the III Series.
The models are available on Austere.com, Amazon, and regional partners, including BrandsMart USA, Crutchfield, Curacao, PC Richard and Son, and Walt’s TV & Home Theater. In Canada, they are available in Visions Electronics and London Drugs.
