Let Smartphone Cool Off And Enjoy Ride

One of the best ways to avoid the temptation to text while you drive is to let your smartphone literally cool off. Today’s smartphones are powerhouses constantly running smart apps and processing unlimited amounts of data and just like our cars, they need cooling to avoid dangerous overheating. Overheating can result in lower battery life, slow processing speeds and can eventually lead to damaging your smartphone.

Chevrolet engineers have developed a solution, currently available on the 2016 Impala and Malibu that will help cool smartphones while they’re charging in a wireless charging bin. The new system, known as the Active Phone Cooling, features a ventilation process directed towards the wireless charging bin, using the car’s HVAC system to cool the smartphone. 

The Active Phone Cooling system will also debut on the 2016 Volt and Cruze models. So now drivers have a perfectly logical, efficient and product protecting rationale to do just one thing when they get in their cars – drive.
