    I agree with you. Charge when you can. As a seasoned traveler, I always work on my laptop and whenever I see an outlet, I sit next to it because you’ll never know when you’ll get the chance to charge again. Don’t ignore your gadget’s battery or you’re the one who’ll suffer.

    I bought my universal adaptor online and it’s as important as my passport. Can’t leave without it. It’s helpful for me since I travel across continents and sometimes, I lose track what type of sockets do they have. But with this, I am always assured that I won’t go low battery.

    Yes, I had the experience when my motherboard was fried because of water due to humidity. That’s when I learned my lesson to not work outside if it’s hot because it can damage my laptop. It costed me hundreds of dollars for the repair so it’s a very expensive mistake.
