|Having too much phone in that Summer Sun
Is Your Technology too Hot for the Sun?
With the summer heat starting to ramp up across the country, people everywhere are noticing a decline in their technology’s performance. This could be attributed to a lack of proper software updates but it also could have to do with the sun’s rays beating down on it. The heat is a common cause that ends up roasting your cellphone or laptop battery!
a. Try to keep your laptops and handheld devices OUT of the summer heat and INTO the shade. The sun can cause your laptop to over heat, and when your laptop over heats forget about watching that next episode on Netflix. Try to use a cooling pad and keep your laptop’s fan fully functional and clean. Place your laptop on a hard surface which will allow the fan to remain level and work at its optimal level.
2. With the summer heat, comes the dive into the pool
a. This may seem obvious, but avoid the water at all cost. Water will cause permanent damage (and damage that will void the warranty on your device); is that pool selfie really worth it?
3. If being near water is a necessity for you, you might want to try investing in a waterproof case. Although they may initially seem like the cases are priced far too high, in the long run they will most certainly be worth it!
a. These waterproof cases can be a real lifesaver and work remarkably well some brands you might want to investigate are Hitcase
, Bessmate, and Optrix
all of which boast that they will protect your cellphone from Neptune’s dangers.
4. And as always, play it smart!
