Keeping Your Devices Safe When Traveling

When going on vacation, you undoubtedly want your tablet to come along as well. Plane rides and beach lounges are a great opportunity for reading and browsing the Internet, and so taking your tablet on vacation is a must. But how do you keep it safe? There are multiple threats to your expensive device when traveling, but the following article outlines ways to keep your devices safe when traveling.

Keeping Your Devices Safe When Traveling

Gearing up for a vacation, but worried about the safety and security of your tablet and other devices? We've got you covered, and the following list shows you how to keep your tablet safe when on vacation.

Threat #1: Water damage. Water damage is a common problem for many electronic devices, and when you are on vacation, the threat of water damage is even more likely to occur. In order to keep your tablet safe, we recommend our water-resistant covers and sleeves for not only your tablet but your cell phone and laptop as well.

Threat #2: Heat damage. Leaving your tablet in a hot car while you go shopping or sightseeing can destroy your expensive device, but one of our totes will not only protect your device from water damage, it will keep your device cool and safe from damage.

Threat #3: Damage from a drop. When hauling around your electronic devices during vacation, you may neglect to store it properly. If you have one of our totes that comes with multiple pockets and protectors, you have no need to worry. If you do happen to drop the tote, your device is cushioned adequately and no damage will occur. You also have less need to worry about theft or losing the device, as your tote is convenient to carry and hard to lose track of.

Four Reasons to Get a Waterproof Sleeve for Your Tablet

As of January 2014, 90% of Americans have a cellphone and the majority of those owners have a smartphone. In addition, 42% of adults in America own a tablet. These facts are astounding and the number will surely increase as technology grows and prices become more competitive. Affordability will make these numbers go up. If you are one of the many smartphone or tablet owners, you are faced with the decision of how to accessorize and protect your goods. A waterproof tablet sleeve is a great idea if you are an on-the-go type person for the following four reasons. 

Convenience

Undoubtedly, one of the first concerns you have when protecting a gadget is keeping it out of the way of water. When you own a waterproof case, it removes the need for concern. You can basically forget about it, no matter where you bring it, because a waterproof case has multiple uses. It not only protects from water, but also from other things that can dirty your tablet (crumbs, dirt, etc.). It is very easy to slip one of these covers on and then you don’t need to worry about it anymore.

Fashion

You might think a waterproof case is bulky and unfashionable, but that’s not true. There are plenty of options out there, especially from Fern. Waterproof sleeves are sleek and even have slots for other important items you carry around, like your cell phone, glasses, pens, etc. 

Fewer Worries

As mentioned before, having a waterproof home for your gadget can eliminate a lot of worries for you. You don’t have to worry about moving it “out of the way” when you’re on vacation at the beach. You don’t have to worry about your toddler dropping it on the floor. It is safely tucked away some place that will keep it protected.
