4 Ways to Keep Your Devices Dry This Summer

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Between pool time and beachy destinations during summer vacation, keeping devices dry becomes a necessity. Protect your investments from wet swimsuits, leaky water bottles, and bodies of water while staying connected by choosing any one of the following products to fit your lifestyle.

Pish Posh Mommy Wet Bag— Nothing is worse than having a drippy wet swimsuit in your bag subjecting your electronic devices to chlorinated water. Keep your wet items separate thanks to Pish Posh Mommy’s Wet Bag. This handy little bag features a fun pattern on the fabric outside but the waterproof liner keeps wet items are segregated from your other belongings. It is compact enough to tuck in your pool bag or purse but large enough to hold swimsuits for a family of 4. Besides keeping wet items away from your belongings, it also folds up to do double duty as a handy clutch with a wrist strap that is perfect for nights out on vacation or after a day at the pool. Tech Savvy Parents readers can get 30% your entire Pish Posh Mommy order with the code SUMMER30 before July 31, 2013.

LifeProof iPhone, iPod, and iPad cases— Not all cases are created equally and this is definitely true when comparing LifeProof cases to others on the market. LifeProof cases keep your iPhone 5, iPhone 4 /4s, iPad, and iPods Touch protected from water, dust, shock, and the other hazards that you may subject your device to during daily life. After using a LifeProof for iPhone5, I found the slim case to be attractive, low profile, and incredibly responsive to your touch. The design doesn’t add much bulk to your device but makes it easy to access the charging port through a watertight flap. It’s also easy to listen to music or attach a headset for hands free talking by screwing in the included 3.5 mm headset jack. LifeProof tests each case before it is boxed up for consumer use but the company encourages users to test their product before encasing their phone in it for reassurance.

Dry Case— eReaders are fabulous vacation companions until they get wet or dropped in the sand. Protect your eReader and other electronic devices in a DryCase. Tested underwater to ensure that the bag is watertight and the airtight seal doesn’t fail, these cases come in a variety of different models to protect your eReader, smartphone, and tablet in up to 100 feet of water. DryCase also makes a waterproof backpack made of marine grade waterproof vinyl which would be great for hikes in wet environments, watersports, and protecting items on water rides at theme parks.

Unplug— A vacation is a vacation and time off often calls for letting your out of office response take care of sharing your status with colleagues and leaving your
