With the arctic blast, you may have noticed an impact on electronics. Battery drain is one of the most immediate effects of cold weather, some devices will randomly shut off completely if too cold.
Cell phone batteries can be permanently damages depending on how long your phone is exposed to the cold. Condensation is another area of concern.
This often occurs when the phone warms up after being in the cold of an extended period of time. Tech experts says there are some simple ways to avoid these issues.
“Keep it close to you put it in the inside inner pocket so that your body will regulate the temperature for the phone… Sometimes people want to take it outside but the outside pocket is not as warm as the inner one… You don’t have to take a selfie out on the slopes all the time,” said King Mcmillan, Phone Depot owner.
The ground and snow cover is also getting awfully hard with the cold, cracked screens are also very common so phone cases are highly recommended.
