It’s OK, I think I can guess what you’re thinking, because laptop cooling products are hardly the most exciting gadgets ever invented. Even that picture is boring…
Exciting: maybe not. Essential: definitely.
Enter the TDD-9000 liquid cooling pad from Nexus Technology. It’s a soft velvet blanket filled with a patented gel-like liquid that has been designed to dissipate heat passively and noiselessly.
The company’s CEO, Michael van der Jagt, says that your lap will turn colder within ten seconds of putting the pad on to it. That’s the same effect it’ll have on your overheating notebook PC.
Independent tests found that a laptop rested on a regular surface reached 50?C after 40 minutes, whereas when placed on the cooling pad it reached just 36?C.
The cooling pad can be boosted by lifting it and shaking it every 20 minutes.
It’s arriving in the UK from mid-June, priced £23. Not only is that a pretty decent price but this solution doesn’t require any power from your laptop like many other products do. That means more battery life and performance for your laptop, too.
