Any laptop, whatever the manufacturer or the size, can suffer from overheating, resulting in the whole thing potentially shutting down. Not only is this incredibly frustrating, but can, over time ruin your laptop.
Whether it’s because the laptop fan just cannot cope with everything you’re running, or it’s just not as efficient, or dust free, as it once was, either way, you’ll need to fix this problem.
Introducing the laptop cooling pad.
Most external cooling devices work by using multiple fans to cool the machine, increasing airflow around the chassis. Other cooling pads use heat resistant materials to draw the heat away; however, in our experience at Laptop Den, we consider the former to be the superior method, being quicker and more effective.
There are several points to consider when looking at laptop cooling pads:
- Adaptability: The cooling pad should be just as portable and adaptable as the laptop itself
- Quality: The build quality should be excellent
- Ports: Some laptop cooling pads include extra ports
- Volume: Excessive volume is a definite no-no
- Design: The cooling pad should fit the size of your laptop accurately
We’ve thoroughly tried and tested our featured laptop cooling pads to ensure all these factors and more, and because we’ve done the hard work, you don’t have to. Have a look through our choices, in the sure knowledge that every cooling pad here is exceptional.
With 5 built-in fans, this cooler is impressively quiet. It also offers an adjustable keyboard slant, allowing relaxed wrists and optimal productivity whatever you’re using your laptop for.
With four small and one large fan working at around 1500RPM, everything in the vicinity cools down while the angled tilt allows for the most comfortable keyboard position, and includes padded wrist supports. The two USB ports, adjustable wind speeds, and independently controlled LED lights make this model well worth considering.
With an easily adjustable angle, five decently powerful fans, and a volume of less than 23 dB, there’s a lot to like about this cooler from PCCooler. The two USB ports provide ample charging possibilities and the well designed non-slip base provides a solidly reassuring experience.
Topmate has a high tech approach to laptop cooling. Five ultra-powerful fans keep your laptop running smoothly, the stand adjusts for comfort, and we like the little flap to prevent laptop slippage when at a steeper angle. The LCD screen and touch controls allow you to instantly personalize the airflow, switching between the cooling modes.
Five fans spinning at speeds of 2200rrp almost instantly cools you, your laptop, your coffee, and the neighbor’s dog. An adjustable angle allows you to use your laptop all day and remain ache-free, while the twin USB ports offer versatility. This model definitely deserves its place in our top 5.
