Highly charged heavy ions at rest offer a wide spectrum of precision measurements. The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH is able to deliver ions up to U92+. As the production of these heavy, highly charged ions requires high kinetic energies, it is necessary to decelerate these ions for ultimate precision. The broad energy distribution, which results from the deceleration in the HITRAP linear decelerator, needs to be reduced to allow for further transportation and experiments. The HITRAP cooling trap is designed to cool, i.e., reduce, this energy spread by utilizing electron cooling. The commissioning of this trap is done with Ar16+-ions from a local EBIT ion source. By analyzing the signal of stored ions after ejection, properties such as ion lifetime, charge exchange, and ion motions can be observed. Here, we provide an overview of the recent results of the commissioning process and discuss future experiments.
