Help prevent static electricity on phones & accessories

Static electricity can build up on devices like your earbuds or phone. It causes what feels like a small electric shock.

Help prevent static

  • Wear natural fabrics, like cotton. Keep your devices from rubbing against synthetic fabrics, like nylon or polyester.
  • If you’re indoors, use a humidifier.
  • Moisturize dry skin.

What causes static

Static can build up and cause a shock when:

  • The environment is dry, windy, or cold
  • Your earbuds or phone rub against certain materials

Static electricity is normal. It doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with your devices or accessories.
