Dirty Ports?

There is a lot of buildup of dirt on the case where it recesses into the port openings. Is it a problem and what is the best way of cleaning it?

I used a blending/ fluffy make up brush and that did the trick. Soft, clean and easy to get. I found it easier to use then the q-tips

use q-tips or compressed air to try and clean the ports

as for it being a problem there shouldn't be one as long as it doesn't mess with the connection

If the muck is really stuck on, you can use a small amount of alchohol on the Q-tips to help unstick it.

Q-Tips or dry cotton wool should clean your ports well.

As for the mag-safe charger port, the magnetism can hold some dirt to it. This can be hard to remove but Q-tips and a little extra effort should clear it out

A soft toothbrush can be used to loosen debris, then use a little compressed air to blow it out. If you are going to use alcohol, be sure to remove the battery first, to avoid shorting anything out.

I advise against alcohol, if it get's in the port- your port may end up permanently screwed. Ditto at the compressed air though.

Used a clean make up brush and that did the trick of removing any sand, dirt, lint from the charging port
