4 Methods To Protect Your Electronics When Storing In Self Storage Facilities

When electronic devices are not going to be used for some time, you will need to store it properly. Electronic devices comprise of components such as a printed circuit board, resistors, transistors, semiconductors and wiring. These are extremely delicate items which are assembled in a clean room that is free of dust and atmospheric particles. Imagine storing them incorrectly and the consequences that will follow. What are some of the methods to protect your electronics when storing in self storage facilities?

Remove the batteries

Most electronic devices use alkaline batteries which is a primary battery, meaning that it is non-rechargeable. Alkaline batteries are cheap and have a storage life of up to 10 years when stored correctly. However, all batteries will self discharge and this is accelerated by improper storage methods. Alkaline batteries will leak potassium hydroxide, a caustic chemical which will cause respiratory problems. Not only that, it will react with carbon dioxide in the air to form potassium carbonate which will oxidise copper and other metallic components in electronic devices, leading to permanent circuit damage.

Climate control

Electronic devices are extremely sensitive to moisture and temperature so when you are storing them in self storage facilities, you should utilise a climate controlled unit to store them. A climate controlled unit will definitely cost more, but it is able to provide the proper moisture and temperature that is most ideal for your electronics. In the long run, your savings will be more and your electronics will have a better lifespan.

Anti-static foam

Another natural enemy of electronic devices is the static electricity. Static electricity is due to the imbalance of charges on the surface of a material and is inevitable. Have you ever experienced being static shocked by someone else? Although this amount of electricity may seem very little, it is actually enough to damage your electrical components. Anti-static foams work by pushing the metallic parts of your components into the foam which is made of a conductive material which will conduct away the static electricity present.

Foam peanuts

One mistake many people make is by using bubble wraps to protect their electronics. However, plastics are actually efficient generators of static electricity and as mentioned above, are very damaging to the components. Instead of using bubble wrap, wrap the components using a piece of cotton cloth and protect it with foam peanuts which are very gentle on the parts.

Steak Dinner For Two

Here is what you'll need!

Servings: 2

1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
3-4 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons grated parmesan
Chopped parsley, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
In a small pot, melt the butter and fry the garlic until it’s just starting to brown.
Add the flour, and whisk until there are no lumps.
Slowly drizzle in the milk while constantly whisking to make sure the mixture is smooth.
Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
Slice the potatoes into about ⅛-inch thick slices, then fan them out in a small baking dish.
Pour the sauce on top of the potatoes, then sprinkle with parmesan.
Bake for about 1 hour, until the top is bubbly and golden brown.
Sprinkle chopped parsley on top, then serve!

Servings: 2

1 head romaine lettuce
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 avocado, diced
½ cup croutons
½ cup shaved parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving
¼ cup Caesar dressing

Slice the lettuce into about 1-inch pieces, then transfer to a large salad bowl.
Add the bacon, avocado, croutons, cheese, and dressing, mixing until evenly combined.
Serve with additional parmesan on top!

Servings: 2

1 (2 inch thick) ribeye steak, preferably USDA Prime
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons butter
3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 sprigs fresh thyme

Preheat oven to 200°F/95°C.
Generously season all sides of the steak with salt and pepper.
Transfer to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet, then bake for about 45 minutes to an hour until the internal temperature reads about 125°F for medium-rare. Adjust the bake time based on if you like your steak more rare or more well-done (you monster).
Heat the canola oil in a pan over high heat until smoking. Do not use olive oil, as its smoke point is significantly lower than that of canola oil and will smoke before reaching the desired cooking temperature.
Sear the steak for 30 seconds on the first side, then flip.
Add the butter, garlic, rosemary, and thyme and swirl around the pan. Transfer the garlic and herbs on top of the steak and baste the steak with the butter using a large spoon.
Baste for about 30 seconds, then flip and baste the other side for about 15 seconds.
Turn the steak on its side and cook to render off any excess fat.
Rest the steak on a cutting board or wire rack for about 10 minutes. Slicing the steak before the resting period has finished will result in a lot of the juices leaking out, which may not be desirable.
Slice the steak into ½ -nch strips, then fan out the slices and serve!
