I Left My Laptop in a Hot Car, and That’s What Happened

So, did you know that almost all laptops tend to work best when the temperature is from 50 to 95°F? Any colder or hotter, and your gadget starts to wig out. The thing is that laptop lithium-ion batteries are notorious for NOT being heat-friendly. Even if you leave your device in a hot place only a few times, you risk ruining it beyond repair!

By the way, the battery isn’t the only thing that can get harmed when you abandon your laptop in a hot car. Any hard drive consists of delicate and fragile components; and when the materials they’re made of get heated, they tend to expand, which means permanent damage or even failure of the hard drive. How to avoid such dramatic consequences?
