How to protect the laptop charger?
The laptop charger is an important component of the notebook computer, but it is often the most overlooked in daily use. Many people pay more attention to the maintenance of the computer host, but often ignore the laptop charger, which causes its damage rate to remain high. So today we will look at how to maintain the laptop charger in daily use.
1. Create a good heat dissipation environment for the laptop charger.
When using the notebook in a high temperature environment, the laptop charger should be placed in a ventilated place not exposed to direct sunlight. Do not place the laptop charger near the cooling air outlet of the laptop. Otherwise, not only the heat of the laptop charger will not be dissipated, but also some heat will be absorbed. Don’t forget to take care of the laptop charger while maintaining your laptop. In the hot summer, we can put the laptop charger on its side. In order to increase the contact area between the laptop charger and the air, the heat of the adapter can be better dissipated. In order to obtain a better heat dissipation effect, we can also pad a narrow plastic block or metal block between the laptop charger and the desktop to increase the air convection speed around the adapter and accelerate the heat dissipation of the adapter.
2. If an abnormality occurs, stop using the laptop charger in time.
When the laptop charger makes a lot of working noise or even smokes, it is often damaged or malfunctions. It should be stopped immediately and can be used again after inspection and repair by professional engineers.
3. Reasonably use the laptop charger to charge.
When the laptop battery is in a charging state, it is best not to run large-scale 3d games and other programs that make the whole machine work load heavier, so as to avoid the insufficient output power of the laptop charger and the battery charging speed will slow down or the charge will not be full, etc. .
4. The notebook chargers of different models of notebooks cannot be mixed.
The chargers of different brands of notebooks have some differences in output interfaces, voltage and current values, so they cannot be mixed. This will cause the battery to be insufficiently charged, the screen flickers, etc., and it may also burn the notebook computer motherboard or other hardware. You should also be cautious when switching between laptop chargers of the same brand and different models. It is recommended to consult a professional engineer before operating.
5. When using laptop chargers, you should pay attention to avoiding humid environments.
The function of the laptop charger is to convert the 220 volt direct current of household electricity into direct current, so it must not be used in a humid environment. Whether you put the laptop charger on the table or on the ground, please be careful not to place water cups or damp things around it.
6. It is necessary to clean up the dust of the laptop charger frequently, and handle it with care.
As mentioned above, the laptop charger is an electrical appliance that generates a large amount of heat and requires good heat dissipation. However, due to its own design, many laptop chargers have poor heat dissipation. In daily maintenance, we should often use a dry soft cloth or paper towel to wipe the external dust for the laptop charger to prevent the dust from entering the gap and reducing the heat dissipation performance.
7. Be cautious when using non-original laptop chargers.
Non-original notebook chargers may have some differences in output interfaces, voltage and current values (or the nominal and actual differences). If it is not matched properly, it may even cause damage to the notebook motherboard. In addition, the laptop chargers of different models of the same brand should also be used with caution.
