Side note: I'm not sure if it's all Androids or just the Samsung ones, but when they get to around 70C they will shut down all apps, dim the screen, and put up a dialog saying they're overheating. Nothing you can do about it, either. It'll recover fine when it cools down, but won't relaunch your app. Something to keep in mind if you're planning on installing them into a car with full windows and everything that can get pretty hot inside.

Actually they just annoy the shit out of you with a warning that the device is too hot to charge then, sometimes, it just shuts down completely. but you can immediately reboot with no ill effects just stuck with the stupid can't charge too hot warning.

That's a good point... I've measured interior temps in excess of that at rallycrosses. So I stopped bringing my infrared pyrometer with me.
