How do I protect myself from my laptop

How can I protect myself from having a laptop in my lap at times? Is there a pad that would do that?

Thank you.

I have seen pads out there, but we have not tested them for effectiveness.  The type of "pad" you would want would actually be a heavy and thick piece of metal that blocks magnetic fields.

But first and foremost - if you EVER use the laptop connected to the charger, you MUST ground the laptop.  You can ground it with our Premium USB Grounding Adapter, or our Ultimate Adapter.  Some laptops also allow - because they have metal on their Ethernet ports - grounding via the Ethernet.  If that is the case, you could use our Ethernet Grounding Adapter if your laptop has the metal tabs or balls inside of its Ethernet port.

I really recommend using the charger as little as possible.  But definitely have the laptop grounded at all times when the charger is in use!
