Cooling Dock : New Pro Models

Portland, Oregon, USA (Late-Summer / Fall 2020) - SVALT announces new Cooling Dock models D2 Pro and D1 Pro.

SVALT Cooling Dock model D2 Pro with 16-inch MacBook Pro
SVALT is dedicated to making the best performance laptop workstation products in the world for professionals and other demanding users. The Cooling Dock product line was developed to help professionals tame heat buildup, preserve reliability and reclaim performance potential from heat limited closed-screen laptop workstations, and has now been expanded with new next generation D2 Pro and D1 Pro models. Both models include universal support and active cooling designed for all Mac and PC laptops, with optimization for current generation Mac laptops such as the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Performance Tested
In controlled low-workload testing with a 16-inch MacBook Pro the D2 Pro decreased GPU processor temperatures by up to 67% to help calm laptop fans and restore system stability, while in controlled high-workload testing with a 16-inch MacBook Pro the D2 Pro increased CPU processor power by up to 59% to help reduce heat throttling and unleash peak performance potential.


SVALT Cooling Dock model D2 Pro and D1 Pro Cooling Performance
The D2 Pro and D1 Pro use a passive and active cooling system. The passive cooling system features a 1.8 pound aluminum heat sink located next to laptop processors that absorbs heat through line-of-sight radiant heat transfer. The active cooling system features ten side vents that drive cooling air onto the laptop’s metal enclosure at the processor location and then sends cooling airflow to the sides of the laptop enclosure. The side vents combine with cooling airflow from a lower vent that drives cooling air at the laptop enclosure’s central processor location and then sends air upward along the laptop enclosure. Raised laptop pads direct airflow for optimal cooling, as well as house the D2’s laptop temperature sensor. Pad size is minimized to reduce contact area on the laptop, reduce heat trap and maximize cooling. The managed airflow helps generate more efficient and quieter cooling.


SVALT Cooling Dock model D2 Pro and D1 Pro with 16-inch MacBook Pro Cooling System
The D2 Pro and D1 Pro active cooling systems use a powerful and high-quality 12-volt fan with long life bearing to efficiently generate more cooling airflow with less noise. The D2 cooling system offers multiple user selectable modes, user customization, and an external thermistor to measure laptop enclosure temperatures and automatically adjusts fan speeds. The D2 Pro is available with either a standard D2 cooling system that prioritizes high-speed cooling performance for maximum cooling potential or a D2n cooling system that prioritizes low-speed audio performance for noise critical environments. The D2 cooling system uses a 800-4200 RPM speed range that delivers significant cooling airflow with high noise levels at max-speed. The D2n cooling system uses an ultra quiet Noctua fan with 500-2200 RPM speed range offering quieter operation at overlapping 800-2200 RPM speeds and offering essentially silent operation at lower 500-1200 RPM speeds. The D1 cooling system uses a single speed with balanced cooling and audio performance for simplicity of operation. All three models use a modular cooling system that allows for exchanging cooling systems, as well as easier servicing and maintenance.


SVALT Cooling Dock model D2 Pro and D1 Pro with 16-inch MacBook Pro Flexible Leaning Clamshell Support
The D2 Pro and D1 Pro models use a leaning support system to accommodate a wide range of laptop models and thicknesses, as well as provide for an easier clamshell mode setup process. The laptop can sit safely within the dock’s padded cradle and stay connected to cables when opening the laptop’s display to automatically start current generation Mac laptops or accessing the power button on older generation Mac laptops. This helps to avoid awkward handling and risking a laptop drop. A user installed laptop retention pad locks the laptop in place. The product includes three pads for reinstallation with a different thickness laptop. A top layer of 1/16” padding on the vertical leaning pads is user removable to help accommodate thicker laptops.


SVALT Cooling Dock model D2 Pro Stable Compact Form
The D2 Pro and D1 Pro model’s aluminum dock is milled from 6061 aluminum, then anodized to provide exceptional strength and a Made for Mac aesthetic. The dock’s compact pyramid shape with high-density mass increases stability and frees up desktop space. The dock’s dimensions are carefully set to work with Mac laptop vent locations and for support stability. The bottom of the dock includes two threaded holes for securing to a media cart or for workstation theft prevention.

Availability and Pricing
The new D2n Pro, D2 Pro and D1 Pro models are available with a gray, silver or black anodized aluminum finish for $289, $279 and $219 through the Cooling Dock product page: svalt.com/dock

The D2n, D2 and D1 cooling systems are available to purchase seperartely for $99, $89 and $39 through the Cooling Dock product page: svalt.com/dockcoolingsystems

Cooling Dock : Updated Passive Models

Portland, Oregon, USA (Late-Summer 2020) - SVALT announces updated Cooling Dock model D.

SVALT Cooling Dock model D

New Laptop Retention Pads
The updated D model now includes the same Laptop Retention Pad from the new D2/D1 Pro models. The user installed pad allows customers to custom fit their laptop to the Cooling Dock and lock it in place. Three pads are included to accommodate a different thickness laptop in the future. The Laptop Retention Pad works in conjunction with the Cooling Dock product line’s innovative leaning vertical closed-screen setup to provide increased stability, to support a wide range of laptop thicknesses, and to allow the screen to be opened for easier clamshell model activation while connected to cable and resting within the padded cradle.

New Black Aluminum Anodize Color
The updated D model is now available with a black aluminum anodized finish. The black body color seeks to aid in heat sink heat exchange as well as heighten the sense of mass when looking at and handling the Dock because the design is about more than laptop cooling, it is also about placing a sculpted object carved from solid metal on your desk. It is an opportunity to interact and hold an elemental object made from only two materials with immense weight and a solid presence. This is an uncommon experience in the modern world, which has brought delight to everyone that has seen and held a model D.

Silent Passive Cooling
The D model uses a massive 3.3 pound aluminum heat sink and air channel with natural air currents to provide silent cooling for current generation Mac laptops, such as the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, as well as bringing universal laptop support and cooling to Mac and PC laptops.

Availability and Pricing
The updated D model is available with a gray, silver or black anodized aluminum finish for $149 through the Cooling Dock product page: svalt.com/dock

Existing Customer Upgrades
In support of our customers that wish to install the Laptop Retention Pads on their existing D models, we are offering the pads at material/part cost as an individual accessory replacement item: svalt.com/dockpads

The Cooling Stand not only goes to extremes for cooling performance, it includes a fully modular system with a robust bolted metal construction and high-end components such as a long-life Noctua fan and dual-speed pushbutton fan control. Each component is designed to endure, and is otherwise easily serviceable, replaceable and upgradeable. The new Arms and Pads are compatible with all Cooling Stand models in support of existing and future customers.


SVALT Cooling Stand model S Pro with 16-inch MacBook Pro Additional Features
