Cover me, baby!

Temperature swings can be brutal on your body, so you've learned to layer: Put some extra clothes on when it's cold and take them off when it warms up.

Temperature swings can be brutal on electronic equipment, too. But electronic equipment is like a newborn baby--it can't dress itself! It needs your help to survive temperature swings.

The key for swing survival for electronic equipment is keeping it covered when it's cold and uncovered, but shaded, when it's warm.

Covers and shade help your equipment maintain a constant temperature. A constant temperature keeps moisture from forming on and from seeping into your equipment. It also prevents overheating or the deep freeze.

So treat your equipment like a baby and use covers. Don't make your equipment cry for help because of temperature swings.
