Hi Tony, First I want to thank you providing great information on this forum.

Tony, I've got this idea and it is about enhancing the Electrical Power Surge strips. I have no schematic drawings because of its complexity, only the idea of how it works and how it will play a big role in todays community. I am not electrical savy. I want to get this idea out to companies to manufacture this product. I've looked at several companies and have a NDA on hand. How can persuade and/or present my idea to the companies to reach an agreement?

There are many patents for the Power Surge Strip, how are so many companies able to produce such similar technologies/power strips when there are patents put in place? Internally, they all provide spike and surge protection. What do you think makes them different from one another besides the exterior design?

Thank you and god bless!

!

If you have no drawings you are going to have to contact them by telephone and find out what they need to move forward, if they are interested.

I don't know what makes them different, but if they have patents the USPTO found they were different.
