In our home we have a desktop, a laptop and a netbook, and the laptop get’s the most use. If you couldn’t guess the laptop is mine, and as my blogging and personal computer, this baby is on all day and sometimes through the wee hours of the morning. Although it is only about 8 months old, it often “huffs and puffs” after it has been on for a while and now that the weather is heating up the warmth of it on my lap is losing its appeal.
I was thrilled to discover a product that helps cool down a laptop without using fans or additional energy to achieve it. How does it work? I’ll let the experts get the details straight, but essentially the pad contains crystals that absorb heat:
When a laptop cooler featuring HeatShift Technology™ is placed under any notebook computer, the crystals inside are in a solid state. As the underside of the laptop begins to warm up, this heat is transferred to the HeatShift Technology™ device. This transferral of heat gradually changes the PCM crystals into a liquid. ThermaPAK’s pad grooves channel air under the laptop, and use the second law of thermodynamics (which states that heat will tend to flow from hot areas to cold ones to reach equilibrium) to draw heat from the laptop. Our lab results, as well as those of independent reviewers, have seen temperature decreases of up to 6°C (11°F). After the laptop begins to cool, the HeatShift Technology™ device changes back to a solid crystal – ready for the next use.
It is available in 3 sizes, 3 colors and can easily be rolled up for storage or slipped in your bag along with your laptop. If you predominantly use your laptop on-the-go you will want to consider their HeatShift Bag. I have been thrilled with this product thus far and am using it as we speak! They are also offering a limited time upgrade offer if you have a different product you are currently using and would like to make the switch to this energy friendly, slim designed HeatShift Pad!
