In today’s technology driven age, gadgets have become an essential part of our lives. But just like any other product, our gadgets need care and maintenance which not only helps to ensure their longevity but it also helps to maintain optimal performance levels. Considering the cost value perspective, the maintenance of the quality levels of gadgets would also ensure that their resale value remains feasibly high. If we analyse the life average life of gadgets in accordance with current usage patterns, the average life would come out to be 12 – 18 months.
Check out the following tips which are easy to follow and they would help you to keep your gadgets in pristine condition.
Regular Cleaning is a Must
No matter how small or how large your gadget may be, always make it a point to clean it. Cleaning does not only imply the removal of dirt or dust from the external surface, but it also refers to the need for using the correct materials to clean the device. After all, no one would want their device to get damaged during the cleaning process itself. All devices that have touchscreen interfaces need to be cleaned with a microfiber cloth or a soft cotton cloth. Never rub the surface beyond the required levels. Excessive rubbing would damage the finish and functionality of the surface. By undertaking periodic cleaning, you prevent grime from accumulating on the surface.
Manage Your Battery for Achieving Optimal Performance
Everyone cribs about their device battery providing less operational time. Well, the battery is not to be blamed alone. Most of it depends on our usage style and our efforts for managing the battery’s performance. To start with, it would be a good idea to turn off all the services that are not required. Common battery juice drainers include high display brightness settings, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and cellular data. In my opinion, using battery optimizing apps is not an effective measure. However, some consider it to be good as it kills applications that are not currently active.Turning off avoidable services is just one way of preventing excessive battery consumption. But what about the need for conditioning the battery? The best way to condition your battery is to periodically discharge the battery completely and then recharging it to its full capacity. The optimal time for doing this is once in every 3 – 4 weeks. This would help to sustain the battery’s performance for a longer time. Try to keep a Powerbank with you if you are not habitual of charging your phone or simply do not have the time for charging the battery.
Keep Upgrading Your Gadget From Time to Time
Upgrading your gadget not only keeps it at par with the latest technological offerings but it also costs less than investing in a whole new unit. All you need to do is to monitor the trends and keep a watchful eye out for the best add-ons and upgrades that would keep your system / device running efficiently. You should also understand that upgrades are not merely physical in nature. At times you would be required to update a gadgets firmware and software in keeping with the latest versions that are made available from time to time. As a good measure it would be a good approach to manage the operating system of your device and removing excessive data clusters that may be bundled up in the storage section.
Make Sure You Buy Genuine Products
When it comes to gadgets, people tend to find sources which could provide products at a cheaper rate than the stated market price. In this situation, the genuineness of the product becomes questionable. How do you ascertain that the gadget is genuine and is backed by the company’s quality assurance? When you buy a genuine product, not only are you assured of the product’s quality, but you also provided warranties and servicing benefits which go a long way in ensuring the maintenance of your gadget’s condition. Moreover, fake or counterfeit accessories / products have the potential to damage the original parts that you may connect to it.
Use Protectors for Keeping the Gadget out of Harm’s Way
Every bit of protection goes a long way in increasing the longevity of a gadget’s operational life. Moreover, the inclusion of ultra-sensitive value added features, our devices need added protection external agents and forces. Investing in antiglare and anti-scratch protectors would go a long way in ensuring the pristine display ability of the screen. Believe me, they are worth every penny worth of investment. Getting a body cover provides protection from dust and debris along with considerable protection from shocks that may be caused during impact.
Use a Banana!
Don’t squint! You read it correctly. A banana can be more useful for your gadget than you could ever imagine. Find this hard to believe? It is difficult to comprehend that a banana can be used to keep your device sparkling clean.
But by spreading banana on the surface and using the peel for wiping, you would be able to get all that grime out of the surface and that too in a natural way. The only precaution that needs to be taken is that the banana is kept from entering the device itself as this could cause a short circuit or other internal damage. After using the peel for wiping the surface, use a cotton cloth with some glass cleaning liquid and voila!!! – The surface is just like when the product was delivered to you fresh from the retailers.
