RESCUECOM provides tips to protect your iPod from sand and sun

Life's a beach, and what's a beach without music?

"New Jersey in the summer is all about the shore, and the shore is about good times and good music," said Joe Angeline, owner of two Newark franchises of RESCUECOM, a national computer-repair and -support company.

Because for many people "music" means "iPod," Angeline tells us how to get MP3 players ready for a seaside journey.

  • Heat, water and sand all can harm an iPod, so the beach presents obvious dangers. Purchase a washable or rubberized case to protect your player from the elements. In a pinch, slide it into a sandwich bag inside your beach bag.
  • Charge the battery before you leave, and bring along a fully charged spare battery as well.
  • If your player has a video option, don't use it during your trip. Video viewing drains the battery quickly.
  • While driving, connect your iPod to your car stereo. If the stereo has an audio input, get a cable with a stereo 3.5mm jack on each end and connect to your iPod output. Otherwise, you can buy a cassette or FM adapter to hook up to your player.
  • Have two methods of keeping your iPod attached to you ? for example, belt clip and lanyard -- for flexibility and convenience.
  • If you charged up at the start of your trip but the battery got weak, it may be time to replace the battery. That's one of the services offered by Rescuecom.
