Frequently Asked Questions
    • How do I determine if my laptop or gaming console will fit?

      If you don’t already know the screen size of your device, measure the screen diagonally. The most popular screen sizes are 15 inches, 15½ inches, or 17 inches.

      Then refer to the online product descriptions of our carrying cases, which include specifications regarding the screen sizes and types of devices they are designed to accommodate. Of course, our cases can also accommodate smaller laptops and tablet PCs.

    • How Can I Clean My Laptop Case or Backpack?

      Gently rub your CORE Gaming carrying case or backpack with a rag or a soft brush. A brush may help clean areas that are particularly dirty, but a rag is better suited for general cleaning. Never use harsh cleaning agents.

        2. What is California Prop 65?

          California Proposition 65 requires that a “clear and reasonable warning” be provided by any Company that manufactures, produces, assembles, processes, handles, distributes, stores, sells, or otherwise transfers a consumer product which may contain a chemical “known” to the state of California that may cause cancer or reproductive toxicity to any person the product is sold or transferred.

          We are fully committed to providing the highest quality, safest products for our customers. All products meet applicable federal safety and warning requirements, standards and regulations as enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Procedures are in place as part of our product safety initiatives throughout our supply chain to ensure the purchase and use of raw materials meet Prop 65 lead standards. To date, our efforts have focused on testing for any lead or cadmium content in our products as they are the primary concerns of Proposition 65 in California.

          Our testing is designed to confirm that our materials meet the standards set by California Prop 65. However, because every component of every product that ships to California cannot reasonably be tested for all of the 900+ chemicals listed, the safest option is to include a warning label even though it may not be necessary.

          The requirements are intended to be overly strict. For example, for a cancer-causing chemical, according to the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, “a person exposed to the chemical at the ‘no significant risk level’ for 70 years would not have more than a ‘one in 100,000’ chance of developing cancer as a result of that exposure.” So, if there would be more than one excess case of cancer out of 100,000 people over a period of 70 years because of exposure to that amount of the substance, you include a warning to be cautious. It’s not just computer related equipment. As an example, outlines the required warnings for California consumers placed on tools, lead crystal glasses, ceramic tableware, jewelry, Tiffany-style lamps, electrical cords, beauty products, and even motor vehicles.
