Keep Those Charging Cords Separate!

Throughout the years, we have acquired several different tips and tricks to make your life easier when it comes to all things ultrasound. But our latest tip may be one of our favorites!

If you are anything like us, you may find yourself with far too many charging cords for all different types of devices. Whether it’s a bull tester, an ultrasound, or even your cell phone, the cords are everywhere… This could cause some serious issues for your ultrasound machine. If you happen to use the wrong charger for your ultrasound, you have the potential to damage your machine. Just because the cord fits, does not mean it is the correct charger. No one wants to spend money on a new ultrasound because they used the wrong charger… So, what’s the tip?

We have found it helpful to use a colored piece of duct tape on your ultrasound charging cord. This way, you know exactly which cord belongs to your machine. For example, if you have an XTC, use a green piece of tape. If you have a Flexx, use a blue piece of tape, etc. Essentially eliminating the possibility of having to buy a new machine in the future. Tips and tricks like this may seem simple, but you never know when it may come in handy.
