Chevrolet is adding a new system to its upcoming 2016 Impala and Malibu lines called Active Phone Cooling. This system will come with vehicles that are equipped with wireless charging, in an effort to ensure that phones stay cool and don't overheat. During testing, Chevy noticed that when using the wireless charging feature in the vehicles, smartphones would get hot enough to stop charging, and even shut off. To combat this, they are adding a new air vent, and this is how it works.
In addition to the 2016 Impala and Malibu, Chevy will be adding the Active Phone Cooling feature to its Volt and Cruze line.
