This is a low-joule surge protector. It shouldn't be used for very expensive electronics as it may not have the ability to protect them from electrical surges or for very long.
Surge protectors work by stopping surges and spikes of electricity from reaching your electronics. If a rating of 1440 joules is given to a surge protector, that means it can protect against surges and spikes that collectively add up to 1440 joules. This means, if you plug it in brand new and there is an electrical spike of 10 joules, this surge protector will still be good to protect your electronics from another 1430 joules during it's lifetime of use. After it has stopped 1440 joules of spikes and surges, it just becomes a power strip. It is recommended that older surge protectors are replaced as they can actually become fire hazards since they no longer have the ability to block surges and spikes successfully.
Definitely a good price for some basic use surge protectors. You just have to know what you want to use them for and understand they won't live as long as higher-joule protectors.
Great post! Grabbing one!

uhhhh are we sure that's how these things work?

i was always under the impression that the joules rating was the max at one time

not that it was some "amount" and then after it gets hit and protect 50 that it suddenly only has 1390 joules left.

i dont think it is a life bar in a video game. maybe i am wrong, but it would seem to me that if that were true, how would they ever verify the warranty? they wouldnt know how many "hits it took before" nor could a consumer have any reasonable way to measure this

now...im NOT saying things dont deteriorate over TIME, but to simply say "oh lightning strike, damage 100, you have 1340 life left" that seems not plausible.

I found all this out the hard way about a year ago when lightning struck right near my house and overwhelmed my living room surge protector. It caused my internet modem and router to explode. I invested in a heavy duty surge protector after that

Only cheap surge protectors wear out. Good ones work like a circuit breaker and can be reset.

I'm not sure which category the OP's model occupies. Does anyone know?

AFAIK, these lower cost surge protectors are the absorptive type described by the post above. They do sell mains surge protectors that are installed inline at the circuit breaker, which might be useful if you live in frequent lightning storm environments. However, I am unfamiliar with their mode of operation.
