Lightning is the visible discharge of static electricity within a cloud, between clouds, or between tile earth and a cloud. Scientists still do not fully understand what causes lightning, but most experts believe that different kinds of ice interact in a cloud. Updrafts in the clouds separate charges so that positive charges moves end up at the top of the cloud while negative flow to the bottom. When the negative charge moves down, a "pilot leader" forms. 'This leader rushes toward the earth in 150-foot discrete steps, ionizing a path in the air. 'The final breakdown generally occurs to a high object the major part of the lightning discharge current is then carried in the return stroke which flows along the ionized path.

Power surges are sudden, powerful increases in voltage which can damage or destroy household appliances and electronic devices such as televisions, computers, cordless telephones and more. These power surges or spikes can be caused by many things including the most obvious one – lightning. Surges can also be caused by birds and animals, falling trees, or vehicles crashing into power poles. Whatever the cause of these power surges, the results can be devastating. That’s why Multitec Maldives Pvt. Ltd. offers a surge protection to help our members prevent unnecessary financial loss.
