Whether it’s tangled or damaged cords, or a constantly dwindling phone battery, here are ways to combat a few of the most common techie woes.
Cellphone and laptop cords take a beating, especially the end you plug into your device. The simplest way to protect your cords from splitting, bending and fraying is to secure a pen spring around them. Over time, constant tugging and pulling creates cord fraying, creating a potential fire hazard.
If you run a lot of apps or use Wi-Fi, your battery probably drains pretty quickly. When you need your device charged in a hurry, try this simple trick to turn your battery bar from zilch to full in no time.
Not only does cleaning them help your cans aesthetically, it eliminates germs and promotes a crisper sound by removing the dust that settles in the speakers.
Tip: Be careful – too much soap will leave a sticky residue and too much water or rubbing alcohol is, well, bad news.
If you use a laptop, you likely have a number of cords you need to quickly use and/or unplug at your workstation. The easiest way to organize them is a handy little trick using sturdy bulldog clips that can be found at most dollar stores.
