Actually, this goes for any console, but when it comes to the Xbox One and the S and X, I've read that you're not supposed to plug them into a surge protector because the consoles already have their own. It says that if you do plug them into a surge protector, it'll not work properly as there isn't a sufficient amount of power. I put all my electronics (aside from the controller rechargers or cell phone chargers) into a surge protector. With the original Xbox I didn't really have any issues, and with the X, I don't either, but I have noticed that after a few boot ups from the instant-on, which is what I've always used, the dashboard can go quite slow.
I don't know if that's due to the surge protector 'issue' or just the console. Anyone know what's ideal? This is relatively old news, but one I'm curious about now as I think about it. Microsoft on their webpage at one point stated: Because the console has a built-in surge protector, you should not connect it to an external surge protector. If you connect the console to another surge protector, the console cannot reach the full power that is needed for optimal performance. When some websites took notice of it and started posting about it, Microsoft quickly removed it from what I understand, so I am confused.
