      Meeting all my anti-static needs.

      Anti-static bags were not a thing I had heard of until my Husband started working in the computer industry. I never realised how important the shiny silver bags that computer parts came in were. I used to discard the bags along with the packaging as I am sure everyone else does.

      Any internal part of a computer or circuit board is susceptible to damage from static electricity. Unfortunately humans are a constant source of static electricity; it is constantly building up in our bodies and the reason why we occasionally receive a small shock when we touch someone. This small shock has the ability to damage or destroy chips on circuit boards, mother boards, memory sticks, graphics cards etc...

      Now that I am aware of this hitherto unknown source of danger for my stock pile of spare computer parts I now use anti-static bags. The ones I currently have are Lindy anti-static bags. I paid £22.00 for a pack of 50 anti-static bags on Amazon uk quite a while back.

      The bags measure 255mm x 300mm and are made of a strong plastic type material. The size of the bags means I can easily store graphics cards, hard drives and sticks of memory. I place the item that I want to keep safe in the anti-static bag and then fold the top of the bag over and seal it with a little white label so I can mark up what is in the bag. I can then put the bag in my box of spare parts and I know that the part will remain in the same condition as I left it as it is protected from dust, static and damage from other parts in the box.

      The bags are very strong and I have been able to re-use bags many times before they look to tatty. I feel the bags are good value at 50 for £22.00, they will keep your spare computer parts safe from static until you need them again.

      Thank you for reading.

      (On a side note it always made me laugh while watching the American sci fi series Warehouse 13 as they used anti-static bags to neutralise magical artefacts. I don't think these bags are suitable for the neutralising of magical artefacts so if you happen to come across something unknown don't expect a anti-static bag to save you.)
