  • Temperature and Your Device!

    LPS Technology Services reminds you not to leave your device in your car (even inside your garage)  overnight or for any length of time. Serious damage can occur within minutes in cold or hot temperatures. Temperatures inside your car will be higher than the temperature outside! If a device is inadvertently left out in cold or hot temperatures, allow at least an hour for it to acclimate to prevent condensation inside before you attempt to use it.
