I am going to be in Bangkok, Thailand for a long time and I will be needing a surge protector strip with about 6 plugs.

Thailand uses the "American" AND Euro style plugs for their outlets so i was hoping to get one that works with both, so the six outlets would look like this...

obviously that's a wall outlet but you get the idea...

I would also want it to be grounded at the wall plug (three prongs)

I have read not to buy one at a local Bangkok retailer as they might be built to lower standards and I have some expensive gear i need to hookup. Also if it is MOV (metal oxide varistor) compliant that would be awesome! As far as the "wall-end" of the cord goes it flat like USA would be he best but the round euro style is cool too.... GROUNDED!

Basically what i am looking for:
1. SURGE PROTECTION!!!
2. Euro and USA Style outlets (about 6)
3. Grounded

I've kinda searched the forums but there is a lot to sift through! Any links or product names would be helpful!

Thanks in Advance,
Russ Kercheval

Sample wall outlet...

I want this type of plug in a SURGE power strip

I don't have a "home theater"... I have a "home cinema". Nobody is singing and dancing in my house.

Go to APC site, select the country, then choose any style and need.

Then go to Amazon and see if its for sale there. You can also buy, but at less discounted price, directly from APC:
