Proper Handling of Flashcards

Flashcards are easy-to-use, sturdy, and can give you quality performance for a long time. But these objects need proper handling as well. If you use these flashcards to save games, it is imperative that you do these simple instructions, so your games will be safe.

Store in a Dry Place

The last thing you want is for these cards to get wet. Water causes oxidation and will destroy the flash card’s internal parts. Accidents can happen but don’t worry if your flash card got wet. There is a simple solution. Use a blow dryer and set to the lowest setting. Make sure that the distance is not too close to the flashcard. Dry the flash card and wait for it to be completely dry before using it again.

Keep Them Within Their Designated Cover

Once you open the package, don’t throw away the cover. They’ll come in handy if you need to store your flashcards. The cover is designed to keep your flashcards away from dust and other elements that may cause them to be dysfunctional. Plus, it’s easier to label your flashcards especially if you have tons of them.


Only Download from Authorized Websites

Your flashcards are not exempted from viruses lurking around the internet. So always keep in mind to the only download from secure sites. The kernel company has a designated website where its users can download games, updates, and software. Most of them are free anyway. For the paid software, it’s easy to get distracted by a discount. However, if you downloaded a paid software from an unsecured site, you are not 100% sure whether the software is virus-free. Remember that viruses can not only damage your flashcards, but it can also infect your equipment. It’s more pricey than you think.

Avoid Putting Them in Your Pockets

Our body releases heat which creates condensation. The moisture could get into the flash card that might ruin it forever. Put them in a bag with their covers.
