As the forecast for next week calls for arctic temperatures, we want to give you a quick heads up on how to best shield your technology. Below are some tips to best care for your technology:
Just a few hours in the trunk can cause some damage.
If you’re going outside, keep your gadgets covered in a protected sleeve or pocket to insulate any residual heat. Freezing temperatures can also cause further damage to cracked screens.
Cold air will drain your batteries faster than at room temperature, so bring a portable charger if possible. When not in use, turn off your devices to conserve battery power.
It’s better for your device to be at room temperature when turned on. So when you head inside, give your laptop or phone a few minutes to warm to room temperature before use.
