A Nice, Compact Surge Protector for My Work Laptop?

Q - I've been hunting around for a decent surge protector for my Sony VAIO that I use for work all the time. It needs to be small enough to fit in my laptop bag, but sturdy enough to take the same kind of punishment I exert on my laptop. Any recommendations?

A - Along the lines of Lifehacker's own list of essential workspace and travel goodies, we highly recommend checking out the Belkin Mini Surge Protector Dual USB Charger. It tends to run at a nice affordable price of $15 usually and is pretty sturdy and reliable (we've been using ours for about 2 years now without any issues).

Any readers have other recommendations for Damien? Let him know in the comments!
