Does your cell phone get warm while charging or with excess usage? Well, that heat will shorten the life of your battery over time. I came up with an instructi

Soldered power wires to switch and mounted it to the plate.

I installed a power lead tail for easy connect because the power source is my test bench power.

The feet installed to elevate device for air flow came from my Dremmel tool. They are polishing pads that I have never used.

Cell-2-Cool is ready for business

The plate gets really cold. Some sweanting does occur but not where the phone contacts the plate.

I have noticed the phone holds a longer charge. Did not expect that.

Thank you for comments and your time viewing.
