Cold Weather and Electronics


As the winter continues and some nights get bitter cold, a gentle reminder to take your electronics into the house whenever possible.  According to my friends at Mission: Repair, extreme cold cracks screens.  They’ll crack due to the fluctuations in temperature from a cold car warming up or sometimes just from being so brittle.  In addition, extreme temperatures wreck havoc on your battery.

Portable GPS and iPods should be brought in as well as your laptops and tablets.  Yeah, I’m lazy sometimes too and leave it in the car.  That’s a bad idea.  Not only does the weather cause potential screen cracks, but it makes it a prime target for thieves.  My GPS was stolen a few years ago and the police officers told me the thieves know this time of year people get new stuff, so they look for it.
In other words…bring it inside!
