Holi 2022: The festival of Holi will be celebrated in India on the coming 18th. On the day of Holi, people carry smartphones with them to make photos and videos and on this day people mix colors in water and apply colors to each other. In such a situation, the risk of getting damaged by getting drenched in water increases. In such a situation, you can adopt some methods so that your gadgets are safe on the day of Holi.
Use ziplock bags or waterproof pouches
You can use a ziplock bag or a waterproof pouch to protect your favorite gadgets. This is the easiest way to carry your phone, smartwatch, smart band or any other gadget in an airtight ziplock or in a waterproof pouch. This will prevent water or color from getting on the gadgets.
Use Duct Tape for Additional Protection
Duct tape can be used on Holi to cover open ports like speaker grill and charging port. You can also use duct tape to cover open ports on gadgets other than smartphones.
keep the phone silent
Put the phone on silent mode to avoid damaging the speaker grille when sealed with duct tape or in a ziplock bag.
Use pattern lock instead of biometrics
It is possible that the phone may not accept your fingerprint because it is inside the Jeeplock bag or face unlock may not work due to the color getting on the cover. In this case, you can use a PIN or pattern lock to access your phone.
Avoid charging when accidentally running out of water
If your phone or any gadget accidentally gets wet while playing Holi, do not try to charge it. This can damage the phone and increase the risk of electric shock.
Use wrist band cover for smartwatch
Most smartwatches and fitness bands are IP68 rated. However, if the water resistance feature is not on your device, you can use a wristband cover to keep your watch safe. Or you can also use plastic bags.
