BudgetGadgets Review: USB Cooling Cooler 2 Fan Pad

It's Christmas time, and budgets are tight. Enter budgetgadgets.com - A site full of gadgets for those on a budget! In this review, we look at a laptop cooler to find out if budget pricing equals budget cooling.

My IBM ThinkPad laptop rested perfectly on the cooler, without slipping at all, and at just 0.6 inches thick, the cooler was found to be unobtrusive. The USB cable was the perfect length, as the power plug on the cooler was on the opposite side as my USB ports. I usually use my laptop as I sit on the couch, sometimes for hours. Things do indeed get warm, and I am happy to report that there WAS a noticeable difference when I used the cooler.

Dang under $20??? Sweet. I haven't noticed my laptop heating up at so far. Only had it a week or so but I run it all day and the only area that seems even slightly warm is the touchpad. If it turns out I need a cooling pad, I'll be trying to find this cheap lil cooler!
