Pack This! Dos And Don’ts Of Packing Electronic Gadgets

Electronic-device packaging

Packing is mostly an annoying process for most of us. Clothes can still be rolled and stuffed into a bag. But when it comes to electronic gadgets, you can’t just put things away in a bag and expect it to be intact and working later. You may want to sell your old laptop, or a used tablet. Here are a few measures for you to take when you pack your favorite expensive gadgets and transport it someplace else. As the old saying goes, “a stitch in time saves nine”!

Do This To Retain Your Devices In A Working Condition


  • Make a note of the model number and name of your product. Some appliances don’t have the model imprinted. With the information noted, you will be able to at least look the product up on the Internet.
  • Make sure the device you want to pack has been turned off a while before. Give it some time to cool off, and only then proceed to pack it.
  • Using labels, preferably colored, would help you in reassembling the parts easily at a later point of time. Also, numbering the parts can be useful before you sell your used laptop.
  • Write down instructions in your own words in case of complicated gadgets, especially for the minute details which you think you might forget later.

Don’t Do This If You Value The Safety Of Your Appliances


  • Don’t lose the instruction manual that comes along with the electronic devices you buy. You may not understand the need or use of it at the point when you buy it, but you may need it at times like these to troubleshoot the problems you may possibly encounter. For instance, if you want to sell your old tablet, it’ll help you get customers sooner.
  • Don’t wrap the accessories of your gadgets in normal plastics or other containers. Wrap it in bubble wraps, which are anti-static, and place them in Ziploc bags to avoid damage.
  • Don’t enclose your gadgets in boxes that are too big or too small. A right-sized box, about 2 to 3 inches larger than your device, will help your electronic devices stay protected.
