What if there is a lightning strike or thunderstorm near my home – should I disconnect my earthing products?

You are here:

There is no need to disconnect your Better Earthing products during a thunderstorm.

Better Earthing Lead has a safety resistor of 50,000 ohms plus fine wire like fuse wire. This protects against the very rare (or theoretical) event of a power surge via the earth. If the nearby ground were to be struck with lightning and somehow travelled into the earthing lead, the fine wire inside the lead would burn out. The resistor is another barrier, as only a mosquito bite of power could pass through.
