“The problem is there’s a little 'time bomb' lurking inside these consumer-grade devices that few people ever think about.”
When the device is off, the heat dissipates. These tablets don’t have any kind of thermal management plan other than turning them off. One reason consumer-grade devices can be so cheap is because the components have lower temperature ratings and aren’t designed to run at elevated temperatures over long periods of times. Cheap components result in cheap tablets. If that tablet is put into an application where it is left on all day, every day, or even several hours a day, it’s only a matter of time before the heat takes its toll, and the tablet fails. In the trash it goes.
“The mortality rate of consumer-grade tablets increases as these devices are pressed to do more than what they were designed to accomplish.”
