Why Do You Need a Laptop Cooling Pad?
The reason why a laptop produces so much heat is due to the computer's processor and other electronic components. These electronics are jammed together in a close, tight space with electrical current flowing through the parts, producing heat.
Dangers of Heat
Excessive heat buildup in your laptop can cause the processor and other electronic devices within the computer to fail. The one fan in your laptop is not powerful enough to push out this excessive heat.
What Is a Laptop Cooling Pad?
A laptop cooling pad is a device with two or more fans that work to absorb or expel the excess heat coming from your laptop. The fans are fast and quiet.
Using a Cooling Pad
The laptop cooling pad must be plugged into an available USB port on your laptop. Then sit your laptop on top of the pad and begin using the device. Most pads will come with a USB port to replace the one you had to use on your laptop.
Where to Buy
Cooling pads are easy to find at local computer stores and electronics superstores. Additionally, there are also several websites that sell the devices--see Resources section for one such seller
