Lightning Surge Protectors

Lightning Surge Protectors: A Great Insurance for Signal Boosters

A lightning surge protector is a recommended accessory for any home and building Wilson weBoost cell phone signal booster. 

Placed between the outside antenna and amplifier, should lightning strike your outside antenna, the lightning surge protector will discharge any power surge, saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars of equipment. 

And when paired with a quality surge protected power strip of at least 1000 Joule rating, you'll have the ultimate peace of mind especially if you live in an area with frequent thunderstorms since tall metal objects (like the outside antenna) have a higher tendency to be magnets for lightning strikes. 

Lightning surge protectors come in two types: a 75 Ohm and a 50 Ohm version.

The 75 Ohm (top picture right) is compatible with RG-6 and RG-11 cables fitted with F-Female connectors. Basically, these are normal coaxial cables found in most homes and residential areas and used for cable/satellite TV and internet routers.

The 50 Ohm (top picture left) is compatible with Wilson400 or LMR400-like cables fitted with N-Female connectors. These are pro-grade cables. Much thicker and more powerful (less signal loss) with longer cable run.

Please be aware of your cable connector type before purchasing the 75 Ohm or 50 Ohm lightning surge protector.
