  • Chevrolet introduces Active Phone Cooling, a smartphone air conditioning system in their cars!

The Active Phone Cooling system will be able to cool down phones so they can easily charge through wireless while travelling.

Smartphones at times heat up and causes the battery to exhaust faster. Heated up smartphones also process lowly and are unable to provide services such as streaming music, navigation or receive calls.

Engineers found while testing that subjecting smartphones to extreme heat conditions hinders their charging process. The engineers discovered the fact while testing a wireless charging feature and found some smartphones suspend charging in high temperatures while others completely shut down due to the over-heating inside a car cabin after only a few minutes.

Chevrolet is the first car company which has come up with the solution to the over-heating problem of smartphones in cars. Even though most smartphones have built in thermal protection only causes the phone to stop charging or shut down to protect the system of the phone against the temperature.

However Chevrolet is claiming they have come up with an Active Phone Cooling system which can cool smartphones and provide them wireless charging so there are no glitches during charging. The Active Phone Cooling system is the first of its kind and will only be available in Chevrolet cars such as the 2016 Impala and Malibu models such as the Chevrolet Volt and Cruze. 

The Active Cooling System will specifically direct the car’s air conditioning system to the charging compartment where the phone is set up for wireless charging, to keep the temperature of the smartphone low so smooth charging can occur. To use the Active Phone Cooling system the driver will have to turn on the HVAC system first.  

According to Dan Lascu the engineer of Impala, innovation is not necessarily reinventing a vehicle but it can come from offering simple solutions to problems in elegant ways.
