Peli reports most electronic devices lost through lack of protection

Posted 13 February 2018 · Add Comment

Recent research from provider of protective cases, Peli, shows that most electronic devices are lost through lack of protection.



Sixty-one per cent of people have lost a fragile electronic device or a camera at some point due to water, sand or a strong impact that got the equipment smashed. However, when travelling with laptops people tend to be more careful and use a protective case, according to 83% of the respondents.

These are some of the findings from the recent research among a sample of 1,400 participants carried out by Peli, the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protection cases.

“Our research shows that 39% of the respondents have been careful enough to protect their fragile electronic device or camera and never had them damaged.” says Estefania Fenoy, Marketing Director EMEA at Peli. “However, nearly two third of the respondents had their precious equipment damaged due to strong impacts or exposure to water and sand. With the snow season on its peak and the Spring rains around the corner, consumers should take note that a 30% of people spoiled their gear under heavy rain, snow storms or got it covered in mud. In addition, a 30% got their device smashed or broken by a strong impact.”

Peli’s research also showed that while a sensible 83% would use protective cases when requested to check-in their laptop during a flight, others prefer to use bubble wrap or put clothes around the device. Nevertheless, a daring 3% confessed that they prefer to just ‘cross their fingers and pray’, leaving their laptop at the mercy of luck.

Some fun questions were also part of the survey and they proved to be quite revealing: Childproof protection is essential. Especially since the worst nightmare of the 31% of respondents was their child using their camera as a submarine during bath time - one minute of silence for the poor device. The worst nightmare for 20% of survey respondents was a monkey stealing their camera during an exotic trip.
