So I just received my side car magnetic mount thingy recommended by @Kyle_Rankin for my Nexdock which holds my Librem 5 in the air next to the dock. I have noticed it seems to enjoy that much better than sitting on the desk as I have found when it’s sitting on a surface it heats up rather quickly while it’s charging from the dock and it struggles to stay at 100% from the 500 mA charge current from the dock.
Not so now, it seems to be running cooler and is able to maintain 100% much easier. Before I would have to dim the screen quite a bit on the phone, or shut down apps in an attempt to curtail any thermal induced charging issues and eventually I get the flashing red LED. Before when I have run into this issue I’d place the phone on a large marble cutting board we have that sucks the heat right out in minutes…but carrying that thing is pretty impractical
Anyways, just thought I’d share that tidbit so you can experiment yourself.
