Thursday EVERCOOL Thermal Corp. announced the BATTLE HERO, a laptop cooling pad specifically designed with gamers in mind. Slated as "the best cooling weapon to fight back the heat," the device accommodates 12-inch to 15-inch notebooks and 9-inch to 11-inch netbooks with a pure aluminum shell and dual long-life fans.
According to the company, the cooling pad sports two USB ports for additional flash drives, speakers, or other USB-based accessories. It also provides two slide-out drawers for USB cables, flash drives, or other small accessories.
"From functional points, it addresses the issue that gamers may use laptops for a long time and do not worry about heat and high temperatures if they have BATTLE HERO, EVERCOOL stated. "And from the psychological point of view, BATTLE HERO will remain a trustful partner by your side and give support in the difficult moments."
Pricing and availability was not provided. The BATTLE HERO was also not listed (yet) on Newegg, however users can currently purchase the Hawk 1 notebook cooling pad (opens in new tab) for $16.49.
Because it would be too "cool", get it.......
I'm on a 15.4" one. And it's a serious gaming machine with it's Core i5/4g ram/ATI R5830. :) Not as fast as my desktop but way better than my old DV5.
Why not add 1/3" depth to notebooks meant for gaming and put more cooling inside?
The new Asus line seems to have worked out a great solution in it's units (front/bottom to rear blow out ports).
Also many laptops have bottom intakes so forcing more air in there helps with overall airflow and cooling.
While interesting, this laptop cooler is going up against the likes of the NZXY Cryo LX which is heralded as the hands down best notebook cooler on the market. I know I love mine!
Course, most of these types of coolers have POS construction, and fans that fail in like 2 hours. So long as this one's quiet, cools well, and will last OK, it might be a nice companion to something like a MSI GX640.
