SVALT Cooling Dock - Give your laptop a performance upgrade.
At Cinco our laptops are workhorses. We’re pushing them day-in and day-out. Heavy imaging, editing, rendering . . . Some days it was like they were literally cooking. But no more! Our SVALT Cooling Docks keep them chill and let us use them like true workstations. - Kirk James, President of Cinco. Read more reviews and see more examples.
Get more work done without a laptop meltdown.
When running high-demand applications a laptop’s built-in cooling system can fail to keep up, leading to processor throttling and slower performance. Heat meltdowns often occur at the office when using the laptop like a desktop, where the improved ergonomics of high-resolution displays and full size keyboard and mouse can help maintain your productivity. Learn more about throttling.
Turbo charge your laptop’s cooling system.
The SVALT Cooling Dock’s two-pound aluminum heat sink houses a desktop fan that drives cooling air directly onto processors to turbo charge the laptop's built-in cooling system and help maintain peak performance. The D1 uses a fixed speed red fan, while the more powerful, advanced and customizable D2 uses a laptop temperature sensor and variable speed black fan to intelligently provide silent to overwhelming cooling power. Learn more about design.
Unleash your laptop’s peak performance potential.
SVALT performs testing under controlled conditions to explore and demonstrate peak performance capabilities for high-demand applications. In CPU testing the D2 helped deliver up to 154% higher Turbo Boost speed and up to 21% higher Geekbench Score, while in GPU testing the D2 delivered up to 97% higher graphics power and up to 30% faster frames per second. Learn more about testing.
Seamless integration without any laptop modifications.
The SVALT Cooling Dock’s adjustable pad accommodates a wide range of devices, such as Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops in closed screen clamshell mode, and offers the flexibility to fit laptops with thin covers. The leaning configuration allows for quick and secure opening of the laptop to access the power button, Touch ID, and keyboard without removal from the support cradle, protecting against accidental cable disconnection or laptop drop.

OVERVIEW The SVALT Cooling Dock is the first and only workstation solution of its kind that turbo charges laptop cooling systems to help unleash peak performance potential so you can get more work done without a meltdown. The SVALT Cooling Dock is available in two model configurations:
SVALT D1 Performance Cooling Dock The D1’s cooling system uses a fixed speed red fan set to 1700 RPM to provide a balance of audio and cooling performance.
SVALT D2 High-Performance Cooling Dock The D2’s more powerful and advanced cooling system uses a laptop temperature sensor and variable speed black fan to automatically adjust between 0-3600 RPM for simple set-it-and-forget-it operation and to intelligently provide silent to overwhelming cooling power over the course of the workday. The D2 cooling system includes three Auto mode presets to meet a variety of user needs, two Turbo cooling modes for an instant blast of cooling power, and a Custom mode that can be set to any fixed speed from 900 to 3600 RPM for complete user control.
D1 OPERATION To turn on/off the D1’s cooling system press the push-button switch once. The D1’s fan fixed speed has been selected to provide a balance of cooling and audio performance.
D2 OPERATION To turn on/off the D2’s cooling system, press the push-button switch once and the cooling system will start in default Auto cooling mode, or the last user saved mode. In Auto cooling modes the cooling system responds intelligently to laptop temperatures for simple set-it-and-forget-it operation. An external sensor measures laptop temperatures and automatically adjusts fan speeds from 900 to 3600 RPM to meet audio and cooling performance requirements over the course of a workday. When temperatures are low enough the fan slows to a stop, ready to re-start when temperatures rise.
A LED responds to user activity and visually signals the cooling mode state, while the fan momentarily speeds up to provide an audio signal. The LED is located inside the rear screen, along the bottom of the fan. It’s positioned to be visible when leaning over the laptop and looking down the back side of the dock.
Use the following switch activations to immediately increase fan speed to 3200 RPM for an extra blast of cooling power:
2x Turbo (very fast flashing LED) Automatically returns to normal cooling mode after 5-min.
3x Turbo + (fast flashing LED) Returns to normal cooling mode after pressing the switch 1x.
Use the following switch activations to access advanced user cooling modes or to reset to the default cooling mode:
4x Custom (medium flashing LED) Set the cooling system to a fixed speed by pressing the switch 1x when the fan reaches the desired speed while cycling through 900 to 3600 to 900 RPM speeds. Press 4x to reset.
5x Auto - (slow fading LED) Set the cooling system to lower speeds for audio performance priority compared to default.
6x Auto + (fast fading LED) Set the cooling system to higher speeds for cooling performance priority compared to default.
7x Auto (medium fading LED) Reset the cooling system to factory default for a balance of audio and cooling performance. The system can also be reset to factory default by pressing the switch 1x and then holding it for 7-seconds.
D1 FAN SPECS Red, 1700 RPM fixed speed, 12V, and long life ball bearing with approximately eight years of continuous operation (70,000 hours at 40C).
D2 FAN SPECS Black, 900 to 3600 RPM variable speed, 12V, and long life ball bearing with approximately eight years of continuous operation (70,000 hours at 40C).
POWER SUPPLY SPECS 100-240V AC input and 12V output with one of the following fixed or replaceable outlet plugs: Type A (USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan), Type C (Europe, South America, Asia), Type G (United Kingdom, Ireland), or Type I (Australia, New Zealand, China). A Replacement Power Supply is available to purchase separately.
ALUMINUM FINISH SPECS The dock’s aluminum cradle comes with a high-end aluminum anodized finish, which is a custom finishing process that may include some color variation between parts. The bottom surface of product is considered non-cosmetic finish and includes two #10-24 threaded holes that can be used for mounting the dock in a fixed position if desired.
