    Was thinking the other day about surges. I am pretty sure that if there is a lightning strike that it will toast the touchstone itself. The question however is with your device on a touchstone will the device be protected?

    I plug my touchstone into a surge suppressor. Sure, it won't do jack squat (as far as protection) if there is a strike close by but for most storms where the power just goes out for a few seconds and comes on, it should be ok.

    I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, I also have insurance.

    Having seen what happens when lightning strikes a modular (wired) phone cord, the only thing that I have to say is that a 1/4" gap isn't going to stop a power surge that jumped through 10 miles of air.

    If your phone survives, you'll need a Deloreon and a flux capacitor to find it in the year 2037.....
