I'm pretty sure it's broken in some sort because of it's abnormal behavior. It's produces power immediately even it's still OFF the time i plug it to the power outlet. The city where i live had recently power surges because of thunderstorms and i think that's the reason why. The UPS is connected to a anti static extension cord and still it somehow manages to cause damage in the UPS.

My main purpose of using a UPS is to protect my monitor and gaming rig from power surges. Is my UPS still safe to use or i should immediately get it fixed?

It really shouldn't provide power when it's OFF. What I did is I drained the power of the backup battery in my UPS. Afterwards it went back to normal as it's supposed to be.
