As a general rule, a “normal” cooling base consists only of one or more fans that are connected via USB to cool the laptop underneath, but beyond that they do not give us much more. On the contrary, the Krom Kooler not only integrates six fans but also gives us total control of their speed and noise, with the addition of integrating RGB lighting, an LCD screen and even an extendable support to be able to have the smartphone always visible while we play, does anyone give more?
Krom Kooler, the ultimate gaming laptop cooler base
Far behind are those rough laptop cooler bases that barely incorporate a fan and little else; The Krom Kooler aspires to be the cooling base that has it all, but without forgetting the fundamental function of this type of device: to keep the temperature of gaming laptops at bay. For this, the base integrates a total of six fans (three of 110 mm and three of 70 mm) located in the key areas where the gaming laptops have the ventilation grills. These fans have a configurable speed in six levels (and with an LCD screen that shows us their status at all times) and emit a maximum of 26 dBA of noise, so this will not be an impediment when playing.
Of course, this Krom Kooler cooling base only needs a single USB connector to function and, in fact, it provides at the same time a hub of two USB 2.0 ports to connect other devices such as a mouse or a keyboard if you do not want to use the ones in laptop. It accepts laptops from 10 to 19 inches, and has hinged stops at the bottom so that it does not go down.
And this is important since this refrigerator base also has ergonomic options since it is reclining, so that you can always place the laptop with the height and inclination that best suits you depending on the use you give it, a very interesting plus in this type of devices that not many really incorporate.
Another very interesting extra, and more so in the times in which we live, is that this cooling base has a removable smartphone holder on its left side, so that whenever you want you can place your mobile device next to the laptop to have it at hand. sight, and when you are not using it you can “hide” it so that it does not disturb (in essence it is pulled upwards, so that you can mount the piece on the outside to hold the smartphone or on the inside when you do not want to use it).
