WAUKEGAN, Ill. (May 25, 2010) – Coleman Cable, Inc. (Nasdaq: CCIX) is pleased to announce the expansion of their Smart Strip® surge protector line with the addition of seven new models.

The expanded line will include an assortment of features to meet growing consumer demand to save energy.  The new features include phone, coax and data connectivity plus higher joule ratings providing enhanced surge protection.  The line ranges from a basic six-outlet Smart Strip to a ten outlet small-office / home theater product with satellite / cable, network and phone protection.  Smart Strip surge protectors help to eliminate “standby power” which is wasted electric consumption when household or office electronic equipment are operating in “off, sleep or standby” mode.
 
“The new Smart Strip line was designed to give end-users a range of features and price-points that work in virtually every home, home-theater, small office or enterprise environment.  In addition, bold, eye-catching packaging quickly communicates the average $39.00 annual savings that typical users can expect to realize on their energy bills.  Retailers will like the ‘good-better-best’ assortment that up-sells the consumer.  The Smart Strip not only pays for itself, it sells itself.” said Kurt Markshausen, Vice President - Retail at Coleman Cable.
