Summer care for Electronics
Summer means a rise in temperature, and it's important to make sure you are protecting your valuable electronics from the damaging summer heat. Just as you need to look after yourself and keep hydrated during the long summer months, so do your electronic products and gadgets to ensure they are kept in good working condition.
Electronic appliances and devices react to extreme temperatures, so its highly essential to take utmost care of you devices for them to function efficiently. Here are a few things you can pay attention to while using your electronic devices during summer.
Nowadays we extensively use devices outside for a long time such as smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, laptops. Its a good practice to find a shady area to protect your device from the summer sun, and always keep devices covered up and in the shade when not in use.
Example: Your car is never a good option to stow your devices as the car metal body amplifies the prevalent heat which can cause severe damage. Ensure that its placed in a bag and store it in the rubber lined trunk of your car.
Also, since electronics don't like extreme temperature changes, take extra caution when transitioning devices between extreme temperatures. Allow electronics to cool down completely before turning them back on.
Give your devices a little breathing room. Ensure that your devices get proper air flow which helps them to cool down. Never stack your devices as its produces and conducts even higher temperatures. At the least have 2-3 inches space between electronics devices to ensure the vents are clear and there are no loose items that could obstruct the airflow.
When it comes to protecting devices like your smart phones and laptops, a quality coverall or knapsack can come in handy. Invest in one that has a neoprene inner lining. This wonder fibre will keep your electronics dry and cool, ensuring that they do not overheat.
You may want to get a certified technician to check you wiring who will ensure that all you electrical points are balanced and that your surge protectors and stabilizers are working well. This will reduce the chances of accidental overheating.
