          Woods 6 -Outlet Surge Protector features 280-Joules, 1.5 ft. cord and overload protection. This device features an internal protection that will disconnect the surge protective component at the end of its useful life but will maintain power to the load now unprotected. If this situation is undesirable for the application, follow the manufacturers instructions for replacing the device.

          Here we have a good basic 'Surge Protector features 280-Joules, 1.5 ft. cord and overload protection'. We rate this as only good as it's only a 280-Joules which is way down there for use to protect from surges. Now yes you can use it for any and everything within it's rated:15A 120VAC 60Hz 1800W, but if you have electrics i.e. 4k UHD TV, computer etc... than your want a 2k plus or better Joules rated surge protector. Also once the usable life of a protector is reached, there keep powering your devices, so check that, normally green (Protected) light near the on/off switch it tells you it's working or not.

The back of the hand is protected with Impact protection ribbing - and ' guarantees a never-slip grip' with a 'specialized coating to keep your hands protected no matter the application wet, dry or oily'. They are also 'Safety Yellow' which in my past would have been great where more than one person was working in the same area/item so everyone could easy see if your hands were clear or not of the work area. Lets not forget the 'Touchscreen' ability as todays digital world does not end when we on the job site these days.
          These, simply put are very nice gloves.

          Moonrays Rustic Gnome Plant Pick are hand-painted to add color and character to your planters. The complete set is three (3) each sold separately. They are 8 in., made of Polynesian and each gnome add a special touch to your potted plants or as a gift. We also found a second use for the critters here that love digging in the potting soil of the potted plants. Like most they are helpful while adding that character and we just like the charm they have.

          GreenView Fairway Formula Seeding Success is a combination starter fertilizer and seeding mulch that helps maintain moisture in the planted area, so grass seeds successfully germinate. The paper mulch is completely biodegradable and is combined with fertilizer, a wetting agent and special tackifier that helps keep mulch in place to protect the seed while it germinates - even on rainy and windy days or when seeding a sloped area. Grass seed is not included - you choose the grass seed that best suits your lawn.

          I have a two part review here using both the GreenView Seed Blend and Mulch with Fertilizer to cover it. Now here in the Northwest it's getting late in the season a good time in ways to get seed started with little watering time, but on the same note it may take a few extra days to germinate. Now first we did all the normal ground perp, put down a bit of seed (raked in) and used the Mulch with Fertilizer with a bit of seed added to it to cover it. Just my thing to mix seed and mulch. these are just a few small patches in both shady and full sun spots - Time will tell now.

Worked very well for my few bare spots, plus I feel it also keep warmth in during the cooler nights we start having this time of year. it's texture is like small pellets so there very little if any dust.

          GreenView Fairway Formula Turf Type Tall Fescue Grass Seed Blend contains only top performing fescue grass seeds. A notable benefit is that they are brown patch resistant. This blend will thrive in both extreme sun and shade environments. This dense growing blend will resist drought, insects, disease, heat and heavy traffic from children and pets.

          Answer: 
          It's is rated for inside use (safe), but you "MUST' keep the clearance's from the front of it's heat output and this is a burning flame. I would think that a tent would be out of the question unless it's one of the big ones, 10x10 big, and many of the nylon melts and burns easily.
           
          The FLEXVOLT 12.0 Ah Battery provides up to 8X runtime in 20-Volt MAX and delivers ultimate power in 60-Volt MAX and 120-Volt MAX cordless tools. It changes voltage when you go from 20-Volt MAX to 60-Volt MAX tools. Lithium Ion technology delivers performance in the same size as our 9.0 Ah Battery, so it is more powerful in as compact a package as possible. It also includes a built-in LED Fuel Gauge for instant charge status, and is compatible with all 20-Volt MAX tools and chargers.
           

          I see this 60v system is available in 9ah, 12ah, and other amounts. Whats the difference?

          Answer: 
          In short, Ah (Amp Hours) is a rating of how long a battery will last before needing recharged, i.e. 6Ah will last 90 minutes in a weed-eater, the same 12 Ah would last twice as long. Take this a simply example as many factors (load, use and condition) play a role.
