By using simple care techniques you can increase the life span of all your devices. Use our guide on how to take care of your electronics in five simple steps.

Replacing electronic devices can be an expensive task. Thankfully, with the proper care, you can increase your device’s life span and put an end to consistently needing to buy something new. Below you’ll learn how to take care of your electronics in five simple steps.

Clean Electronics Regularly
One of the easiest ways to take care of your electronics is to clean them. We recommend using a microfiber cloth to wipe off any debris or dirt on your devices. If the stains are more stubborn, consider using a little bit of cleaning solution to get the job done. However, make sure you spray it on the cloth and not directly on your device as this could potentially ruin it.

When it comes to cleaning your devices, there are two things you must avoid. First, you shouldn’t keep your device on when you clean it; it’ll be easier to spot imperfections on a black screen. Second, you should never use water and a paper towel to clean your electronics. This only makes smudges worse, and lint is sure to find its way back on your device.

To keep your computer in optimal shape, clean the vents using a can of compressed air. You don’t want your computer to overheat and in turn, reduce its lifespan. Furthermore, you can also use a small brush to loosen dirt from smaller crevices on the keyboard.

Delete Unused Apps or Data
Storing too much data may affect the performance of your electronic devices. A good rule of thumb is to only keep apps on your devices which you consistently use. Also, be sure to close out of apps when you’ve finished using them; your device’s battery will drain quicker if there are multiple apps running in the background.

Don’t Forget the Cords
Your laptop and phone chargers are just as important as the devices themselves. Don’t let them tangle up into a complicated mess. Gently wrap them and store them in a safe environment. We recommend that you don’t store electronic cords in tight coils, as this could potentially tear them.

To organize the cables behind your desktop computer or TV, use cable ties. You’ll keep things tidy and easy to find when you need them later.

Purchase Protective Cases
You never know when you’ll accidentally drop your phone or tablet—one drop can be enough to crack your screen. To avoid the damage that could come with a seemingly small slip-up, put your device in a (preferably hard body) case. Do some research online to find a case that best suits your device model. It’s sure to last much longer with the extra protection!

Unplug Devices
People commonly leave their devices to charge overnight. However, filling your battery to the brink every time you charge it can end up doing more harm than good. Charge your devices when you see the “low battery” alert, and only charge them up to 70 or 80%.
