Tips and Suggestions

Reminders on Technology Device Care and Use

  • Keep your technology device away from food, beverage, sharp or heavy objects, extreme temperatures, or other circumstances that could potentially damage it.
  • Take careful care of your charging cord and adapter. Do not wrap the charging cord around your charger block as it will result in a crimped cord and will no longer charge.
