Can you daisychain surge protectors?

So I have a power strip that says it has "surge protection" on it and it says it has about 15V of protection. Would it be okay to plug this into a surge protector socket and then plug my PC and monitor into the surge protector? I looked this up and saw somewhere that having two surge protectors can work against each other, although I'm not sure if my power strip counts as a surge protector or not.

  1. No you can't they can actually work against each other.

    Highly not recommended.
  2. Why do you want to?

    Also, I'm thinking you misread the label, "15V of protection" doesn't make any sense.

    Oh okay. And I want to do it because the surge protector that I want to plug my monitor and PC into only has one outlet left.

    As far as daisy chaining surge protectors, it doesn't work. The first strip will trip if a second is plugged into it and used. In theory plain power strips can be daisy chained since they lack surge protection, however I would severely advise against it.
