Tips Don’t Leave Your Cool Device Inside Your Hot Car

Leaving your wireless phone or tablet in your car on a hot summer day can do a lot of damage to those electronics. The interior of your car could reach over 150 degrees – enough to temporarily or permanently damage the display of a touchscreen device.

If you absolutely have to leave a device behind when you get out of the car, consider putting it in the trunk instead. The trunk stays quite a bit cooler than the interior of your car. Also, turn your device off to keep the interior electronics just a bit cooler, and take it out of its case to eliminate the insulation effect.

So, do your best to stay cool on these hot summer days and don’t forget your electronics!
