Laptop cooling pads for everyone
Do you have a laptop? Where do you use it the most? On your lap, in the car, while traveling, in bed, while watching TV, actually anywhere as you can take it and go.
I find that I use my laptop the most on my lap, in bed, or in my favorite chair. After all, that’s why they call it a laptop, right? Do you notice when you use the laptop, whether it’s for gaming (which can take hours) or just to write articles (which could also take many hours) that the laptop starts to get very hot on your legs? Have you ever put your laptop on the bed, I mean, just for a while? So you remember where it is and you try to pick it up and it’s really hot? My son called me the other day and his laptop accidentally turned on in his backpack; did not notice for three hours. He said it was so hot he could barely touch it. What can you do to prevent your laptop from getting so hot?
There are three main options that you can see. This is the Belkin Laptop Cooling Pad, the Belkin AC Adapter or the Vantec Lapcool. All three are worth it, but they all have their little quirks, so read on to find the one that best suits your needs.
The Belkin Laptop Cooling Pad cools your computer very well. You can buy one that ranges from $ 19.95 to $ 29.95. They have a one year warranty, a gentle slope to avoid wrist strain or to help those with carpal tunnel syndrome, lift up the screen to help reduce neck strain, fits in your laptop bag, It also contains a convenient compartment for USB cables and pads. Prevent your laptop from slipping off your lap.
If you’re writing on a table, the cooling pad has a built-in stand that folds out to allow air to circulate. There are no big bulky adapters to deal with, just a small USB cable that connects to your laptop. With all these features, it was hard for me to believe it was so cheap.
Belkin has another product called the Belkin Ac Adapter Stand. This is also a very good Belkin product, although it is not as good as the Belkin cooling stand. When you place this stand on the table, you need to reach back and lift a plate on the back of the stand. If you’re not careful and just reach back blindly to flip the plate over, you can risk touching the fan. Now this isn’t that bad, you won’t cry, but it’s an irritating design flaw.
Vantec Lapcool is another great laptop cooler. It comes with a 12-month parts and labor warranty. The biggest feature was a variable fan speed that the other two lacked. It also has four additional USB ports, which if you have an older or cheaper laptop, you may only have one USB port. This is useful if you have flash drives and other extras that require a USB port. It also has an eight-in-one memory card reader. Now this almost makes this product a must buy.
How many people have a digital camera? I do it and found that my computer does not support the memory card that came with the camera. So, I had to constantly connect the camera to the USB port to download my photos or videos. This was just an annoyance and almost freaked out because the digital camera was not worth the effort. But with the eight-in-one memory card reader, my camera’s memory card fits and I can download images in an instant. It costs a bit more (about $ 47), but if you have a problem with memory cards, this may be worth it.
Another laptop cooling solution is the Vizo Xena Mini Laptop Cooler. This is a miniature refrigerator that can fit in the laptop cabinet and is easy to carry. Does not require an external power connection; It comes with a USB connection and is powered directly from the USB port. And finally, another great feature is that it has adjustable feet so that you can control the angle of the cold air flow in the cabinet.
In the long run, having a laptop cooling pad just makes sense. Your laptop stays cooler, so it doesn’t heat up while you’re working and prolongs the life of your computer.
