My Coffee Just Killed My Computer!

Posted by Author on Aug 30, 2016 4:53:39 PM

We’ve all had that moment of panic when our beverage of choice, possibly sitting a little too close to the computer, gets bumped by a careless, quick movement or an unnoticing coworker passing by. Have you ever wondered, “will this just be a pain to clean or will it actually damage my computer (or keyboard, mouse, etc.)?” If the computer is on, this has everything to do with a possible short. A short is only possible if your drink is conductive. So, how conductive do you think drinks are? DfR Solutions has taken conductivity measurements of a sizable number of common drinks using a graduated cylinder, a conductivity meter, and a dip cell.
