Keep Your Electronics Safe During the Winter

With the Winter weather upon us, we wanted to remind you that you aren't the only one who needs to stay warm - you need to also keep your electronics safe.

Taking a computer or iphone that has been in a cold temperature to a warmer temperature, can cause condensation within the computer or device, which can cause damage (e.g. leaving your laptop out in the car during winter overnight and then moving it into a warm building and powering it up immediately).

To help prevent this situation from occurring:

  • Do not leave your laptop in a car for any length of time during cold or hot weather.
  • When working in cold conditions or transporting your computer through colder weather, keep it in its laptop carrying case.
  • If you are working in extreme cold weather (e.g., -5°c or lower) and moving the computer to a warmer room, we suggest letting the computer remain off for a few minutes before turning it on.
