    I've been thinking allot about how to keep my phone from battery overheating this upcoming summer, as it gets really hot here, and I only have one AC to keep my house cool enough...Does anyone know if there exists a case or pad for keeping the phone cool, like there is for laptops? I think it would come very much in handy if there is.

    Just did a search and came up with nothing. I would imagine any case is better than no case as the case acts like clothing. That's just my opinion.

    A case makes it run hotter because it insulates like clothes do =op

    I have a good case I bought at Verizon, it's perfect for protecting the phone, I'm just very interested in where phone cooling technology will go/has gone.
    Computers, after all, have very advanced cooling systems now

    I have a "cooler"" for my laptop, but it's a metal base, with two fans which run off of the power that comes through a USB port. Works good for the laptop, but rather impractical for a cellphone.

    I looked into the various types of coolers, before buying my laptop. The laptop I have has a rather large 17 in screen and I decided early on to use it as a desktop PC replacement. So, since it isn't going anywhere, and is big to begin with, I elected to get the Notepal, by Cooler Master. That works fine for larger laptops, the thermapak doesn't. But we're talking cell phones, not laptops here. Still, I'm not sure how something like that could be modified for a phone - and how it would functionally cool it, if it was.

    I occasionally use the canned air to blow dust & stuff off my laptop-quick shot to the Droid when it heats up works wonders. I also have a small portable desk fan that I place beside my Ezee stand that works too (could b used with dock)

    Yeah, I do the exact same thing with my Ezee stand, and it *does* help.

    I haven't thought about the details, but I see they have these for the iPads, and I think that we shouldn't be far off from better phone cooling technology.
    After all, as phones get more advanced and more powerful, they will need more advanced care options, and I thought why not phone cooling cases? We all bring our phones into unfriendly temps/conditions by bringing them everywhere we go; if you're gonna spend $200-$300 on it, you'll want it to have the best care possible

    Doesn't seem like it would do much good to me unless the case was carefully designed to improve airflow to the internal components. Cooling off the exterior case won't provide much benefit.
