V5 port burnout question

I have noticed a reoccurring issue about V5 where due to static electricity, ports will burn out in the brain.

the question is without the “special spray” (since not all competitions use it) is there a way to combat this issue without it?

Not really. Just be careful, don’t let wires drag on thr ground, and you should be fine.

It might not be ports burning out but the wires in the ports bending, you can fix this by bending them back up with a pencil or paperclip or something

My teams luckily haven’t encountered this issue yet thank goodness but I’ve talked to a lot of teams who have so I’m just thinking about this for the future especially with a team of freshmen coming in with no experience in vex
