USB Cord Low Current Problem

I am on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, and the long USB cord would not work, low current is a problem for Digital Nomad Travelers.


Not Enough Electrical Current

I purchased a printer in Panajachel, Guatemala for 30 USD, because I am writing a book, and it is easier to proofread with paper. Well, the Canon printer did not include a USB cord, therefore thinking I was clever, I went back and purchased a long USB cord, but it did not work good. I finally went back to the store, and purchased a short one for 1.50 less than what I paid for the long one, and now I do not have a problem.

Low electrical current problems are regular... they burn up black boxes.

Electrical current spikes are not... or if they are, the black box stops them.

I have always used a laptop, the black box solves many current problems. However, I burn up 1-3 black boxes per laptop, they are easy enough to purchase if you own a HP, all the others brands on the market, well... good luck... hehehe

I try to purchase what is incredibly common, I do not purchase the one of kind computer. I must stay in business, special equipment, and you will not be able to repair it as a digital nomad traveler. A computer is a disposible tool, not my wife, it is to do business, I now purchase them for 300-400 dollars.

I have posted a Blog post every day for 10 years, there is a reason, I stay in business, this site is to help keep you running your digital business. And to keep you from buying hype... have fun.
