I should think about the 21 and 22 year old surge protector I'm using right now. A computer was struck by lightning while connected to said surge protector (the 2001 model) back in 2007.

Broadly, if something is supposed to absorb a destructive energy in order to protect something else (eg. bike helmets, surge protectors, ballistic armor), it should be considered compromised upon such use until it can be replaced or inspected by an expert.
