  • Never leave handphones or laptops on your bed. The heat alone can cause the mattress to catch fire. Recharge your phones while you are awake. You don't need to use it 24 hrs. Don't keep it in your bedroom as you should take a break from the radiation. Turn off the mobile data and Wifi when not using. Don't keep it on all the time.
