Adjustable Notebook Coolers Keep Laptops Cool!

December 11, 2009

Easily keep your notebook cool!

This new Adjustable Notebook Cooler puts an end to your laptops and notebooks warped disc drives, dry soldered joints and even melting casings. These and many more problems that occur from hot running laptops can be solved easily.

This cooler fits most 7” to 15” laptops and has a single, quiet fan that cools your computer. Further passive cooling and heat dissipation is assisted by allowing air can also freely flow beneath the machine as well. The cooler’s unique, fold-away design means it can easily be situated under the part of the machine where cooling is most needed. It is still small and compact enough to fit into a laptop bag.

Heat can be very bad for notebooks and with laptops becoming more powerful the amount of heat they generate is increasing. This can have a serious impact on their performance and the lifetime of the machine if it is not dealt with. Newer notebooks are cheaper and lighter than ever and more plastic is increasingly being used to make them. This contributes to the problem.

The LINDY Adjustable Notebook Cooler is bus powered by an integrated USB Cable and has rubber pads to hold the laptop securely when it is in use. A tilt feature provides additional comfort. The design features a single 2300 RPM fan with a quite operation of less than 20dBA.

Don't lose essential ports!

The new LINDY HDMI 360 Degree Adapter is the latest addition to our line of 360 degree adapters range. These devices are ideal for users who find that connecting bulky HDMI connectors or heavy-duty cables can block adjacent ports on their devices.

The HDMI 360 Degree Adapter can swivel and rotate in almost any direction. This allows users to choose the perfect connection angle of a HDMI cable so that it doesn’t obstruct any other connections. This small and compact male to female HDMI adapter can extend a HDMI port just enough to enable easy access to the adjacent ports. This means that connecting a HDMI cable no longer impacts on performance, the ability to connect other devices or becomes an annoyance itself.

On lots of newer equipment many ports are too close together to be able to deal with high-end HDMI connectors which are often bulkier than standard ones. As the line between TV, gaming and computing becomes increasingly blurred, losing the ability to connect to just one port can be very frustrating as most users need every port they can possibly access.

The LINDY HDMI 360 Degree Adapter provides a simple solution to freeing-up these much-needed ports so users get the most out of their equipment and their setups.

Energy Saving Trust

Energy Saving Week 2009 is an annual event by the Energy Saving Trust. This year it runs from 19-25 October (its thirteenth year!)  It’s an important week for both our pockets and the planet and aims to show how easy it can be to make a difference.

Energy saving devices

One of the simplest ways of saving energy is to prevent leaving electrical equipment and charges powered on at the mains when they are not in use. LINDY have a number of products to help avoid this. Our 4 Way and 6 Way Individually Switched Power Strips help save power as each individual device can be turned on and off independently. Our 8 Way Intelligent Mains Power Strip automatically switches off the power to your computer peripherals when your computer is powered off at the mains. This ensures energy is not wasted on devices that can’t be used. The LINDY 3 Way Intelligent Power Switch works in the same way. These devices can help you save energy, the environment and money!
