Detachable Pad / Smart refrigerator

Detachable  Pad

The average life span of a refrigerator is 10 years. However, the average life
span of a smart pad is about three years. The smart refrigerator on the
market consists of two products. This will result in an unbalance in product life.
So it began with an idea that the two products could be separated and reassembled.
