Introduction: Cell-2-Cool

About: I like to tinker and build things that seem fun to do.

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
able to help with that possible problem.  In this Instructable, I repurposed a Peltier cooling system used in a portable drink cooler. Let's go check it out...

Step 1: Parts

Peltier cooler
Small fan
Power source, 12vdc
Hot Glue
Quick Steel
Assorted Misc. other things

Step 2: Step 1

I mounted a metal plate to the cooling side of the Peltier. This is where the cell phone will rest.

Step 3: Step 2

Mounted small fan to remove heat caused by the Peltier. 

Step 4: Step 4

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.

Step 5: Step 5

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.
