USB Laptop fan really good deal.
Else were its like £5 minimum just bought 2.
Decent fan speed as well. also has a cool blue led that lights up, great for my ps3 and laptop
only problem is that there's no cap on the fan blades so they sometimes cache, plastic a little flimsy but all really good value.
get them quick i saw a guy buy like 15 :D.

They seem ok - am using one now and (so far !!) laptop hasnt done its usual manic dying when I'm halfway thro something...... !

Probably worth a pound, unlike the green Micra in the same photobucket album!!!

ok but my daughters has broken now on the usb part... but got another one... ok for a £1

They are tat and they have sold these for months, If you laptops turning itself off then this is not going to save it as its either knackered or the fans either blocked or not spinning. These have a fan in the middle which is useless considering 99% of laptops don't have there air vents anywhere near here most are either top right or left or back and sides so all these are doing is blowing cold air on to plastic which will do nothing at all.

These are cold and that's no pun

If you suffer an overheating laptop look into undervolting software. I've managed to shave off many degrees of heat from various laptops by using this technique. It's safe, easy and free! All it does is reduce the voltage going to the CPU in your laptop which can result in a major reduction in it's temperature! Just search google for "undervolting". One of my favourite PC discoveries/hacks, that actually works!

These will do nothing for cooling, but at least it is a nice thing to raise the laptop up a bit from the table and give it a decent slant towards you.
#11
I am using 1 right now and has actually worked on keeping my laptop awake!
Certainly get your moneys worth, can't complain
#12
Somebody has put up a youtube video of it if you search. They reckon it's absolutely useless and just good at draining your battery. I couldn't even tell if it was a joke review.
#13
I've used one of these as part of my studio setup for a couple of months now. They don't do a great deal for cooling, but the elevation is good. Can't complain for a pound.
#14
i got one a few months ago and find its too small (about the size if a dvd case), ideal for a 10" netbook to sit on but not for a full size laptop. but it does what it says so voted hot.
#15
I use mine as a spacer between the PS3 & freeview box, perfect for a quid!
#16
Bought one of these and butchered it as I was building an xbox storage tower and wanted some air flow around it. Cut and routed vents on both side panels of the unit and then routed a circular hole on one side and inserted the fan there. Enough ventilation even without the fan but this does a nice job of keeping the air flowing (and I like the leds) and figured that at a pound I can replace it easily if it goes.
#17
Flimsy and can potentially block vents rather than cool! Be careful, if you suffer overheating, might be useful buying an air duster and use it to clear the vents. Thats what i did; i don't really appreciate valuable laptop battery power being used to power blue lights you can't even see under your laptop.

Good for other uses such as some mentioned above though.
#18
Got two a few months back when this deal showed up for the first time. My PS3 is much cooler now. £1 does the trick. I recommend it.
#19
we got 3 a few months back and have our routers stood on them, one has stopped working but for £1 its easily replaced.
#20
This has been in poundland for as long as I can remember, its in every store and has been on this website before.
#21
The "it's not working/get an air duster" posse is back on it again. Those things aren't supposed to replace your laptop's cooling, so yes if your laptop is shutting down you have an issue this won't fix.
The thing they are good at and what they are really supposed to do is they cool down those areas where the built in cooling isn't efficient enough. Depending on system design it can be your ram, minipcie cards (wifi, wwan etc) and most importantly your hdd. I have been using coolers for the last 6 years and can tell you it works.

In the engineering of motor or electronic based systems the critical factor is temperature. The principle being keep the device cool to ensure optimal performance. For example with a car engine, it will run fine up-to a certain temperature and the develop varying degrees of problems due to overheating. Likewise with a computer system, if any components overheat they may fail to operate correctly or simply break down.

If a device blowing cold air directly onto a specific area (that is in close proximity to a system component) then it will eventually bring down the temperature level through a process called 'heat-transfer'. You may be familiar with this process with CPU cooling. The cooler is in very close proximity to the CPU as immediate cooling is required.

This device blows cold air centrally towards the base of the laptop. When heat is generated on a device its hottest part is at the centre and heat will generally increase on the (overall) system centrally. Due to another process called 'heat-exchange' (like that which takes place when cold water mixes with hot) this device will aid the reduction of temperature of the system overall, albeit a small amount.

This device is not designed to cool a CPU or motherboard, rather to reduce overall system temperature to aid the pursuit of optimal performance.

I've voted this hot before, but am voting cold now, because of all the Poundlands I've visited they've NEVER had them instore, EVER!

Must be limited stock for certain parts of the country.

How noisy are these?
#25
Mr Bill, They're not noisy at all. To the poster that said these dont cool laptops is talkin outta his/her crack.....I bought one and it works wonders for me. My Laptop used to get all heavy and eventually shut down cuz I didn't have a Cooler that could supply sufficient air from the bottom, since I bought this my comp has never closed down on me and it works very light.
#26
Been using 1 for a few months now. It's too small to fit properly under my laptop, so I have it sat towards one side - where the heat is - making my laptop tilted to one side. Looks odd, but works great. I could probably add another one to the other side to even things up, but I don't have a problem with it like this.

Given that just a simple laptop stand/spacer is also £1 at same store, which will definately help cooling, and these have the added addition of a fan, I think they are great value. If you don't want the LED running you could probably just snip it out, but I like it as it tells me the fan is working.

Regarding 'undervoltage', I can also confirm this can also work a treat in helping keep laptops cool. I use "Rightmark CPU clock utility", of which there's a few guides on the net telling you have to correctly set it up. Typically you drop the voltage going to the CPU by a few steps until you reach the point when your machine no longer works correctly. Up the voltage from that point slightly and you should be fine. Most laptops will allow undervoltage without any issues. Mine is set to the lowest voltage level it allows and has shaved a good 10o off my temp.

Typically though, if your laptop is running hot, you could do with someone giving the fan and vents a good clean. The next thing to look at is replacing the heat transfer compound between the CPU/GPU chips and the heatsinks as this degrades over time. Best to get a shop to do this as normally requires a complete disassembly of your laptop to get to the parts.

Why dont you clean the fan out of your laptop. £1 is cheaper yes but how hard can it be.

Really , did you go to lots of poundlands just to get a laptop cooling pad, lol. Might have been cheaper getting a taxi to whsmith for 1.
#29
all "technical" stuff from poundland is a load of ****, sorry. just from my experiences...
#30
There cooler pads are excellent value for money. Ive noticed a lot of people saying they fan wasnt running good enough to cool there laptop. I doubt this is true. Most of the time it works efficiently or youll get a grinding noise or it wont start. its the exit heatsink thats blocked, not the fan. fan sucks in cold air and shoots it out the side grid cooling the heatsink in the process, if it cant get the hot air out then it cuts off

Just to set the record straight, I did not state that TWICE!? lol

Anyways, while on my travels, I tried 4 different Poundlands, in the North West and North East area, within the space of a couple of weeks, and none had them, nor had they ever had them in the past according to people working on the shop floor.
