Lightning Surge Protectors

A lightning surge protector insulates your in-building cell phone signal booster from a lightning strike near your outside antenna.

Wilson Electronics lightning surge protectors contain a gas discharge element that diverts the power spike through the element to a ground wire (purchased separately) instead of down the coax cable to the booster. Your booster is protected; at worst, you'd only need to replace your outside antenna.

ProWay carries Wilson lightning surge protectors for:

  • 400 coax cable with N connectors (50-ohm systems).
  • RG6 and RG11 coax cable with F connectors (75-ohm systems).
