The seat burns through your pants. Dead bugs are fried crisp on the hood of your car. And forget about using the windshield washer the fluid evaporates as soon as it hits thewindshield. Its really hot in Spokane thesedays. If its 90 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car quickly reaches 110 or more, and it goes without saying that pets and people shouldnt be left behind to roast in thatheat. Neither should a laptop computer or acellphone. Our biggest heat concern is the lithium batteries, said Jack Strong, owner of the Apple Mac dealer Strong Solutions on East Sprague Avenue. If they get too hot they can have a runaway reaction and swell and puff up. The swelling not only ruins the battery but may break the plastic or aluminum casing of thecomputer. Strong added that liquid crystal displays are vulnerable to heat aswell. The liquid will expand and damage the display, Strong said. Extreme freezing does the samething. Computer tablets and electronic readers may be completely destroyed by a swellingbattery. Sometimes we can replace the battery. Sometimes theres no turning back, Strongsaid. Electronics that are made for use in cars like GPS systems and built-in DVD and CD players are more tolerant of high heat because they are designed for the fluctuating temperatures of a carenvironment. CDs and DVDs are fairly heat resistant if they are in their cases, but if they arent they maywarp. And if that CD is not flat when you put technician it in your player, you can ruin the player, said Rich Mickey, store manager at Spokane Valley Car Toys on North SullivanRoad. Leaving CDs and DVDs in players may actually save them because it keeps them flat, headded.
