PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHOUGH
Let's take a virtual walk around this cooling device. First thing you notice is that this notebook cooler is not like the usual vented pads you see from various manufacturers. On the top of the cooler you have the two large air intake grills along with two rubber pads used for propping the rear of your laptop.
Within the pad you have twin ball bearing turbine fans housed within an open outer casing. These fans intake through their top grills and forward under the pad. This allows for the laptop's fan to have a continual supply of fresh cool air. More on that later.
On the back of the cooler you have your low/high fan speed control switch and a blue power LED. There is no main power switch. If you want it turned off, you will have to unplug the USB connection.
Attached to the cooler is a foot long USB cable which serves as its lone power source. The end of the cable has a pass-through that will enable the user to still use the USB slot that the connection is using. But there was one small problem with the way that Antec orientated this connection.
