Frequently Asked Questions

Will the magnetic force mess up the screen and display of my laptop?


In short, no. The magnet has had a bad reputation for messing up the screen of computer monitors, but this is extrememly old information. The screens you are likely referring to are CRT (cathode-ray tube) and were first invented in the 1950's and were compltetly discontinued in 2008. They have since been replaced by modern day LCD, LED and OLED screens, which are not affected by magents. So needless to say, if you are still using a CRT display, you really probably don't even need a DongleSpot.




Can the DongleSpot magnet erase my hard drive?


No, it cannot. In all our testing and years of continued, daily use, our hard drives, both HDD and SSD, have been completely unphased by the use of our DongleSpot magnets. Through various testing and research, the typical magnet that can erase a hard drive has the pull force of 450 pounds.* Our DongleSpot magnets are made from N35 rare earth materials and only have a pull force of 6.68 pounds. So basically, use at your own risk, but we believe your devices are safe. * https://www.forbes.com/sites/adriankingsleyhughes/2012/11/28/can-a-magnet-destroy-a-pc/#510f2c097de0 Other Useful & Interesting Articles: - https://www.kjmagnetics.com/blog.asp?p=hard-drive-destruction - https://itstillworks.com/advantages-magnetic-disk-storage-over-main-memory-12032.html - https://sewelldirect.com/blogs/learning-center/can-magnets-really-mess-up-your-computer - https://www.shredit.com/en-us/blog/cybersecurity/magnets-and-other-myths-hard-drive-destruction?uid=94 - https://www.howtogeek.com/124713/are-modern-computers-still-vulnerable-to-damage-via-magnets/ - https://www.technologyreview.com/2006/06/18/228956/how-to-kill-a-hard-drive/
