Abstract: The heating effect produced during their operation of mobile phone is hazardous. Hence, cooling of mobile phones plays a vital role in the design phase. Phase change materials (PCMs) can be used for cooling purpose since latent heat storage in PCM has high energy storage density. The melting temperature of n-eicosane at 36°C can maintain the heat source at much lower than the allowable temperature until the PCM is fully melted. The required amount of PCM was stored inside the heat storage unit (HSU) which is located strategically inside the mobile phone. The heat pipe, which has high effective thermal conductivity, can be used inside the mobile phone to transfer the heat from various heat sources inside the mobile phone to the other end of the heat pipe where the HSU containing the PCM is located.
