    Xbox One S into Surge Protector


    I've been using my xbox one s for a while plugged into a surge protector, but I just read that microsoft recommends plugging xbox one s into wall instead of using a surge protector. I've never had any issues with the power on the xbox not turning on or
    anything. Since this is the case can I continue using the surge protector, or would there be any other reason to switch to a wall outlet? And since the S has a built in surge protector, exactly how many joules does it protect it from?

    :)

    No power to Xbox1.

    if you have a xbox one s console make sure it's not plugged into a surge protector because there is a surge protector built in so there is no need for an additional surge protector. If it's not a S console then I would try a different outlet just to make
    sure it's if it's the console or the outlet your using.

    Surge protector

    The surge protector is already built in.

    Whether you have the power brick on the original Xbox One or the One S or upcoming X. The PSU also doubles as a surge protector.

    Xbox One S Randomly shutting off

    If your console is plugged into a surge protector then unplug the power cord and plug it into an outlet. The xbox one s console has a built in surge protector so no need to plug it into one.

    My controller keeps disconnecting!

    Hi Clement,

    Make sure your console is plugged directly into a wall outlet. Plugging the console into a surge protector or ext.. cord will cause issues over time with the Xbox. The Xbox one S and X have a surge protector inside, the Xbox one has a surge protector in
    the brick.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Xbox One crashes when starting a game from instant-on mode

    Hello Godpuncher

    Yea it is not recommended to use a surge protector/multi-plug.. If at all possible its best to plug directly into the wall. On original Xbox one there is a surge protector in the Power supply. On the Xbox one S & X there is an internal surge protector.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
