    Here's the video


    I bought three things:
    1 - Kmashi 15,000 milliAmp-hour power pack ($20, delivered)
    2 - USB fan with flexible goose neck ($8.50, delivered)
    3 - Insignia wirless charging pad from Best Buy $40 - (I know there are cheaper options... this charger was an impulse buy)
    Items 2 and 3 are powered from item 1​

    I superglued a bent metal strip onto bottom of charging pad to hold the phone at the right height for charging, so I don't have to fuss with placement.

    I added a spacer superglued to the bent metal strip, to create a space for air to flow between the power pack and the wireless charger.

    Fan gooseneck is bent in a U shape back towards the charger, cooling both the phone and the wireless charging pad. (I believe keeping the charging pad cool helps keep the phone/battery cool since they are in close contact).

    Results: net charge rate approx 17%/hr with screeen on (daydream mode) and battery temperature remains 95F with 75F room temperature

    The whole thing can be picked up and carried around and used while charging/cooling

    Reminds me of the old iPAQ expansion packs. But way bigger! That's a good thing BTW.
