Is Your Tech Ready For Hurricane Season?

Tech Tuesday with Jacksonville Public Library

How should I prepare my tech for a storm?  

First check all batteries and charge/replace any that need it before the storm. Make sure all devices are charged before the storm in case of power outage. Try not to use your tech except in case of emergency, and turn your tech off or put it in airplane mode when you’re not actively using it to preserve your battery life.
