2. In summer, the temperature is changeable and there is a lot of rain. The pick-up port is prone to stains and water accumulation because it is connected to the outside world.
If there is any stain, it needs to be cleaned up with a towel in time, so as not to contaminate the product, bring a bad shopping experience to the user, and also a safety hazard that cannot be ignored.
