This work demonstrates how to estimate
the Planck-based CMB bounds on
arbitrary models of (s-wave) annihilating dark matter (Paper I). More
generally (Paper II), it provides the detailed breakdown of the low-energy electrons and
photons produced by
high-energy photons, electrons and positrons injected into the universe during the
cosmic dark ages, and an estimate of the resulting ionization, heating
and spectral distortion.
