Windows 7: Ziplock Bags For Electronic Devices?

You have no idea. I've been having a "bad day" for nearly 3 months. Probably even more.

But if you're saying that just because I type a lot or try to get answers from, that's just the way I am. Curious and making sure of things before I go ahead and do them.

But thanks all. Doesn't look like there's any warning against this idea so I'm going ahead and using standard storage ziplock baggies for my electronic gizmos and sh1t.

regular ziplock bags will be fine for your portable electronics.

anti-static bags are used when electronic components are exposed, like on a video card, ram stick, hard drive, mobo, etc..

Yeah those aren't exposed. Thanks for clearing that up.

My PSP and cell phone (only things I'll be carrying besides by headphones) are shielded with coolzy plastic.

Well, since ziplock bags work to prevent moisture from entering in in the first place...think my electronics are safe.

ziplock bags work. If you are like me and go kayaking, put your camera/phone in a tupperware container.

I have done the same thing and works great for temp storage. I use the Freezer bags since they are heaver duty. A few years ago my wife dropped her phone in a water puddle. I removed the battery and stuck it in a bag of dry rice for a few days and it is still working. We have used dry rice in our salt shakers to keep the moister down.

Plastic bags around computer case
I kind of have a habit of throwing various plastic bags next to the right side of my computer before throwing it away into a trash can. Can the plastic bags create static electricity that can damage the parts inside? Or does the case protect it from this happening?
