The modern home is going to be chock-full of gadgets in 2017. From the Amazon Echo to numerous tablets and smart TV’s, there’s going to be an array of complicated tech in almost every household, and business,worldwide.
Even when you’re out and about, your pack is going to be filled with a computer, an e-reader, a music player and a phone as well as a tablet. You might even have wearable tech on your arm.
All of this is a huge and expensive undertaking and you’d be incredibly silly to not look after each and every device that you hold dear. After all, the cost of replacing each one is much higher than the cost of caring for them!
The battery is probably the most important part of every gadget you own, but you probably don’t know how to look after it, right? Batteries are powered by lithium and this is an optimistic development and devices are lasting longer than ever thanks to the developments technology has made with lithium. You can keep your battery cared for by ensuring your device isn’t exposed to extreme temperatures like the freezing cold or the boiling heat because fluctuations in temperature will ensure that your device won’t last long at all. Another way to care for a battery is to perform a charge cycle. Allow your device to completely run out of battery before charging it up once more and you’ll extend the lifespan of the lithium charge core inside the device. It’s not going to make it last forever, as right now, all good batteries do have a lifespan, but you’ll certainly get the most out of it.
Anti-virus and system defense is an oft-overlooked section when thinking about caring for a phone or a tablet. Your phone or tablet is a huge target for cyber-criminals chasing your data and you should ensure that you look after your portable devices as much as you look after your laptop or desktop. Make sure you regularly update your devices and make sure that you scan consistently. You may use your phone or tablet more than a laptop and it’s important that you take their protection seriously and undergo the same precautions as you would with an actual computer.
The most obvious step in gadget care is actually cleaning them. Microfiber wipes and alcohol sprays can eradicate dust and keep your devices fresh and working for longer. Dust and dirt can and will destroy your device, so if you notice it – you need to clean it. If you own earbuds, it’s worth rubbing them down every so often so they aren’t introducing dirt to your ear canals and you should think about wiping grime off of your wearable devices once in awhile.
The bottom line is this: Keep your gadgets clean on the inside and out and you’ll be able to enjoy them for longer. Does that sound like a good deal?
