Domestic surge protectors are rather oversold in terms of what thy can protect against. Use of one is no guarantee that issues of unreliability or short lifetime are not being caused by power line problems. A proper power conditioner is sadly significantly more expensive. For equpment powered by a wall wart, replacing that with a higher quality regulated power supply may be a good option.
