We carried out a survey to understand if we offered the right kind of protection for our customers and their products. Of the 1,400 participants questioned, 61% of them stated they had damaged or broken an electronic device or a camera at some point due to water, sand or a strong impact.
However, when travelling with laptops people tend to be more careful and use a protective case, according to 83% of the respondents.
“Our research shows that 39% of the respondents have been careful enough to protect their fragile electronic device or camera and never had them damaged,” says Estefania Fenoy, Marketing Director EMEA at Peli.
“However, nearly two-thirds of the respondents had their precious equipment damaged due to strong impacts or exposure to water and sand. With the snow season on its peak and the Spring rains around the corner, consumers should take note that a 30% of people spoiled their gear under heavy rain, snow storms or got it covered in mud. In addition, a 30% got their device smashed or broken by a strong impact.”
Peli’s research also showed that while a sensible 83% would use protective cases when requested to check-in their laptop during a flight, others prefer to use bubble wrap or put clothes around the device. Nevertheless, a daring 3% confessed that they prefer to just ‘cross their fingers and pray’, leaving their laptop at the mercy of luck.
Confessing the worst nightmares
Childproof protection is essential. 31% of respondents worst nightmare was their child using their camera as a submarine during bath time – one minute of silence for the poor device. The worst nightmare for 20% of the respondents was a monkey stealing their camera during an exotic trip. Although maybe a nice piña colada could help alleviate the pain! When asked what they would like to be in their next life… an impressive 89% preferred to be a Lifetime Guarantee Peli Case rather than a 10-year guarantee car!
