What is the safest recommended surge protector for the iphone?  My son uses his iphone while plugged in/charging to listen to music to fall asleep.  I know this is not recommended.  Anyway, what type of surge protector will prevent dangerous power surges?

Why do you think this is not recommended?  This is not a problem at all.

 

Any surge protector should be just fine.

    I am thinking of the Chinese flight attendant who was shocked while answering her iphone 5 while it was plugged in.  She got an unusually strong surge of power and died.  Thanks.

    That was caused by a cheap third party knock off.

     

    If you are using one from Apple you have nothing to worry about.

    Not an issue with legit accessories.

     

    Using the iphone while plugged in is not a problem.
