Power surge in Basel?

Hello Basel residents


Did anyone else plug in their phones overnight and discover an issue this morning?


I think we might have had a power surge in the apartment - my blackberry had frozen and my girlfriend's phone clock had reset to GMT: with the result that we both overslept! I wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar?


We didn't go out last night to sample any Fasnacht activities, before anyone asks!


Thanks

Multiple phones and other sensitive equipment that record voltage drops or spikes and everything stable overnight.

Your phone's charger should protect your phone from power surges.
