Why a USB cooler fan is a must for your laptop bag

Yes laptop fans, carrying a USB Cooler fan in your laptop bag is a great idea. It costs very little but has a lot of benefits!

Benefits of a USB cooler laptop fan
  • Cools off the laptop, especially if you have a battery that overheats
  • Provides a barrier between the laptop and the surface it is sitting on. You don't want sticky buns from Starbucks smearing the bottom of your laptop
  • low price
  • it gives your laptop bag a "bottom", that way your laptop is not the thing that makes contact with the surface. So you can put your laptop sunny-side up :)


Negatives
  • Takes up more space in your laptop bag
  • can't fit it into a laptop sleeve
  • takes up one USB port
  • eats up battery if you are not connected to live electricity


Conclusion
So as you can see, the pluses overwhelm the negatives, so unless you have something that inhibits the use of a laptop cooler, it's a must-have and must-use accessory. And it won't break the bank! You can get these for $10 to $20 depending on where you get it and whether it's on sale or not.
