Brada Laptop Cooler





Materials: Brada Laptop support, 2 PC Cooling fans, screwdriver, drill, hole-punching bit.

Description:
I love Brada laptop support. It’s very cheap -9,95TL in Turkey- and comfortable. But in summer times my laptop need cooling. Well I decided to modify my black Brada laptop support. I drilled two large holes for cooling fans and four more holes for the fan installation. I decided to use 7″ fans. Maybe you can use larger. After 5 minutes of working my modified Brada is ready to use. :)

Cheap, easy and comfortable…

    Great! :-) , but how did you power the fans? As far as i know, those are made to be plugged to a 3 pin motherboard socket, not to a USB port.

      You can use a 10V adapter. Or like me, you can use an old mobile phone adapter. Take a look to youtube, you can easly find a “how to” video

    I think you could just use some AA rechargeable batteries. They are relatively cheap and you can use the fans every time (e.g. when you want to cool down your notebook when its off) and you won’t be blocking a USB port.
