The Cool Fix for Hot Transit Tablets

The Cool Fix for Hot Transit Tablets

Summer is here and boy is it a sizzler! As temperatures continue climbing, the tablets in your vehicles also feel the heat. If you’ve ever left your phone in a hot car and found it sluggish after, imagine that happening to the in-vehicle devices your bus operators rely on daily.

The hot take on in-vehicle tablets

While the average mobile device is designed to withstand a certain amount of heat, typically between 50ºF (10°C) – 95ºF (35°C), daily use inside the hot interior of a bus is another matter.

Consistent exposure to high temperatures can damage the internal components of a device causing failures, such as:

  • Baking batteries to the point they no longer charge, work, or leak chemicals.
  • Processor meltdown that results in slower performance, app crashes, and freezing.
  • Screen strain causing discoloration, ghosting, or permanent burn-in of images.
  • Corruption or loss of important data and files.

Most of this damage is irreversible and requires completely replacing your tablets. One of our agency partners recently showed us how extreme heat destroyed the commercial tablets inside their vehicles.
