Giveaway: ThermaPAK HeatShift Laptop Cooling Pad CLOSED


For the most part, I love my laptop. It's a Sony VAIO and it's attractive, compact and fairly lightweight. Problem is, it tends to overheat. Seriously overheat. There have been times it has run so hot that it has burned the tops of my thighs! I had to get a cooling fan to keep underneath it at all times so it wouldn't continually be a hazard. But my cooling fan can be loud and annoying, especially when I want quiet so as to concentrate on my writing.

ThermaPAK has the ultimate solution for your laptop computer heat. Their Laptop Cooling HeatShift Pad (ARV $27.99-34.99) uses patented technology to dissipate heat away from your notebook. It is made of a safe, laboratory-tested chemical that has been proven to lower temperatures better than fan-based USB cooling devices. It requires no power (which extends your battery life), no refrigeration and generates no noise.

So, how does it work exactly? ThermaPAK's HeatShift Pads contain patented PCM solid crystals that transform into a liquid as the heat from the underside of the laptop is gradually transferred to the pad. The grooves channel air under the laptop to evenly distribute heat. Independent lab results show temperature decreases of up to 6°C (11°F). After the laptop cools, the device turns back into a solid state, ready for the next use.




Each HeatShift Cooler is lightweight and because there are no messy cords, it is portable enough for any blogger on the go. As it uses no energy, the HeatShift Pad is eco-friendly and comes in three stylish colors: black, white and pink. There are also three different sizes ranging from 13 inches to 17 inches for compatibility with virtually all laptop models.

WIN IT: I'm so jealous because one of my lucky readers is going to win a 15" pink (my favorite color!) ThermaPAK HeatShift Pad! That's a $30 value!


MAIN COURSE (MANDATORY ENTRY): Tell me your favorite feature about this product. Remember to please leave your email address in your comment if it isn't visible on your profile to prevent disqualification!
