ThermaPAK Pink HeatShift Laptop Cooler {Review & Giveaway} ARV $29.99

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

When my husband and I moved into our house years ago, we bought a dining room table and chairs set that fit right in with the space and decor. Now that we have a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old, at any time during the day that table (safely covered with an easy-clean tablecloth) might be serving a number of different purposes. It's the location for a wide variety of coloring, painting or crafting projects as well as, of course, 3 meals (and a snack or two).

The dining room table also acts as my "office" and my laptop stays sitting out and turned on from the time I wake up until the time I finally drag myself to sleep. Convenient? Yes. Good for the laptop? No. Keeping it running for that amount of time leads to it getting pretty warm and, up until recently, I didn't make the connection between being it being overheated and poor laptop performance.

What made me realize this was the problem was the fact that I now had a preventative solution in the form of a ThermaPAK 15" Pink HeatShift Laptop Cooler.


The most effective answer to laptop heat, ThermaPAK's HeatShift Laptop Coolers have been proven to lower laptop temperature by more than 10 degrees Fahrenheit and significantly outperformed USB cooling fans. Constructed out of safe, laboratory-tested cooling crystals, heat is dissipated quickly and effectively without the use of any power, wires or refrigeration.

Not having been overly familiar with laptop cooling devices, in preparation for this review I looked up various types to try to understand if ThermaPAK's HeatShift Technology was really all that unique. The answer: a resounding yes! I can't imagine using a noisy, fan-type product that would blow dirt and dust at your laptop that would either require electricity or use up one of your USB ports (and the energy to run it).

Instead, ThermaPAK's HeatShift crystals cool uniformly and shift from being solid when they are cool to a gel as they absorb heat. All that is required is to place it on your table, desk or lap (no more scorching your legs!) and set your laptop right down on top. Simple and eco-friendly? Completely. Effective? 100%. And when you are done for the day and your laptop is removed or turned off, the crystals solidify once again and are ready and waiting for tomorrow.

My child-friendly vinyl tablecloth is no longer in danger of melting and my laptop hasn't frozen up or had any delay problems since I've left it placed on top of this stylish pink pad. When I do move to sit on the couch, the ThermaPAK Laptop Cooler is lightweight and soft and the design is slim enough that it could slip into a briefcase or bag for easy travels.

Available in 3 different colors, ThermaPAK HeatShift Laptop Coolers are more successful, mobile and ecological than anything else on the market I've seen. Their comprehensive research and development, attention to details and continual evolution of design has put ThermaPAK and their products (they also have a HeatShift Laptop Bag that looks pretty amazing) as the brand to go to for laptop cooling devices.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will have the opportunity to cool their laptop in a fun, pink way, because...

One lucky person will win a 15" Pink HeatShift Laptop Cooler from ThermaPAK! ARV $29.99!

I would use it everywhere I use my laptop.

My house has no A/C, so I would worry about using the laptop there in case it overheats. using the HeatShift Laptop cooler would ensure that it doesn't overheat.

But most of my time I spend on my laptop is at the library or Barnes & Noble - while both of them have A/C, it would still be a great idea to use the HeatShift Laptop cooler to keep the laptop's temperature down.

Thanks for the giveaway!

My little laptop runs so hot (HPs seem to do that), and the USB fan cooler I have runs down the batter quickly, so this would be perfect for me. I'd use it all the time I use my laptop - at home and on the road. Thanks!

Unknown said...

I would love to see these laptop coolers come in the color apricot - it's such a happy, bright color! :-)

I could really use this for those times I'm in a waiting room or an airport terminal (the latter, not as often as I'd like), and I have to hold my laptop actually on my lap.

It would be helpful to use while I nurse my twins in the living room :)

This would be helpful to me as my laptop overheats constantly and I'd use it primarily at home.

I would use the thermapak mostly while sitting on the couch! I was actually just saying today that the bottom of my laptop gets so hot it almost burns my legs! This would save my legs and probably my computer in the long run!
