If you are planning to ship electrically charged devices such as laptops or mobile phones, you will want to make sure that they are protected from electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharge occurs when electricity travels between two devices. The problem with this is that is can cause heat damage as well as damage to the electronic circuitry. You can think of this occurrence like a very small lightening bolt. An electrostatic discharge, just like a lightening bolt, needs to find a path to travel through. You can keep your devices safe by making sure that your devices are being shipped in the proper packaging. Packaging should be made up of anti-status material which includes wraps, barriers, and cushioning.
