Cooling Pads for laptop & why it’s Important
Temperature is one of the main problems of laptops (Especially gaming laptops). The little space available inside them for air circulation tends to cause over-heating. If you are using your laptop for many hours in a row you will need a cooling pad so that it can be effective.
In order to protect your device from the heat, we will recommend a few cooling pads from different brands with different features so you can choose the one you like the most.
Let’s start with the ones from the brand Cooler Master, a specialist in coolers and fans. It has a wide range of cooling pads from which we will be mentioning the Notepal L1 and U3 models.
The Notepal L1 is compatible with devices from 7” up to 17”. Thanks to its 160mm fan it reaches a great cooling level of 70CFM with a sound level of only 21dBa. This base gets connected to the computer or to a charger with a USB. Also, to make the usage of the device more comfortable, the base has a slight back inclination that makes typing easier.
On the other hand, the Notepal U3 has a bigger capacity, it works with devices from 17” up to 19”. In terms of cooling, the U3 is manufactured with aluminum to enhance the dissipation of heat and reducing the weight at the same time. It has 3 fans of 80mm with 22CFM of power each and a customizable design: the fans and USB port can be set in different positions.
