Chevrolet to Manufacture Cars with Phone Cooling System
FREMONT, CA: Smart phones are made of chemicals, build materials, operating systems, and software and just like any other gadget even smart phones could overheat if they are not in the required temperature environment.
Chevrolet, an automobile company is launching an air- conditioning (AC) feature that also behaves as an Active Phone Cooling System. It constantly blows cold air to help the smart phone cool down and prevents overheating even if the device is in the car for an hour or two on a sunny day.
The AC will be connected to the car’s air conditioning and ventilation system for cooling an overheated smart phone. The AC vent will be situated on a tray below the dashboard of the car.
Chevrolet’s Impala, Malibu, Volt and Cruze models will be equipped with the wireless charging, reports bussinesstoday.The feature will be introduced with dual capacities to cool and charge a smart phone simultaneously through the wireless connection.The company claims that the cool air-emitter will benefit users as it increases the battery life and also improves a smart phone’s battery life.
A finding had resulted that overheating of smart phones disrupted the charging feature. "Over time, regular overheating can do permanent damage to the lithium ion batteries that power our smart phones. I always recommend keeping your phone in a cool, ventilated place, where it can stay at a comfortable room temperature, whether it's charging or discharging," says Jeffrey Van Camp, Deputy Editor,Digital Trends.
