Keeping your laptop cool can be important not only for your laptop's performance but also for your health. According to the "Los Angeles Times," heat from laptop use may lower sperm count. Additionally, a laptop's internal cooling fan depletes valuable battery power and can slow its processing speed. Though there are many commercially available laptop coolers that help solve these issues, there is a simple and effective way to cool your laptop with items found around the house and without relying on the laptop's power supply.
Place a metal cooling rack on a flat, stable surface. Remove any objects that might impede airflow to the laptop work area.
Cut a small, wide rubber band and wind it around a metal bar above one of the cooling rack's feet. Secure with superglue. Repeat in all four corners.
Center the laptop on the cooling rack. Circulate the air underneath the laptop with a small electric fan.
Small battery-powered fans are an ideal way to circulate air underneath a laptop when travelling.
