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.

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.
