Power Accessories Can Help Enhance and Protect Your Computer
For most people the power cord is probably the part of their computer they pay the least amount of attention to. Just plug it in so your computer turns on or charges the battery – what else is there?
As it turns out, there are a few elements of power accessories that can help you have a better experience. If you do a lot of travelling with your laptop, especially outside North America, exploring different power accessory options can be a necessity. Even if you have a desktop or your laptop mostly stays at home, there are a few factors to consider. And with products from manufacturers like Hewlett Packard (HP), Apple, and Targus, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.
Laptop Batteries, Chargers and Adapters
Laptops are amazingly powerful machines, but without a dependable power source they’re just large, expensive paperweights. An extra battery
can be very useful for road warriors who take long trips, especially if there aren’t any convenient outlets around. If your current charger gets damaged or you want an extra one to keep in your laptop bag, there are plenty of chargers
available, some of which have multiple tips to work with different laptop models. Adapter plugs
are a must for travellers who need to work on their laptops outside of North America, since other countries have different plug shapes and voltages in their power outlets.
With all of the valuable files you keep on your computer, you’ll want to protect it from power surges that can fry your delicate electronics. A surge protector
can handle that task by protecting your laptop or desktop from electricity surges caused by lightning or utility issues.
Computer Battery Backups
On the other hand, having too little electricity, i.e. a blackout, can also be a pain, especially if you’re working on a crucial file on a desktop and didn’t have a chance to save. Get a computer battery backup
and you’ll have enough juice to save your file and safely shut down your computer, even when the power goes out.
