Now that summer is here there are a few more things you should be keeping an eye on. The sun causes a few extra risks, especially during this time of year. One major risk has to do with your electronic devices. Heat can be very dangerous for items that have batteries. Today we’re going to take a look at some ways to prevent your phone from overheating.
It is important to prevent your phone from overheating, because this can cause serious damage to your device. When your phone overheats, it can cause permanent damage to the lithium ion batteries that power smartphones. One common way phones tend to overheat, is when they are in hot vehicles. That’s why engineers have added a cold air vent in select 2016 Chevy models. This air vent will keep smartphones wirelessly charging the car from overheating. This feature will be available in the 2016 Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, Volt and Cruze.
This new exciting feature is called the Active Phone Cooling feature and it works when the car’s heating, ventilation and cooling system is on. Most smartphones do have built-in thermal protection features that can cause the phone charging or turn off until it has cooled down. This is extremely inconvenient if you are using your smartphone to stream music, receive phone calls or navigate while you’re on the road. With the Active Phone Cooling feature, you won’t have to worry about your phone shutting off from getting too hot.
