Cooling System
  • B14 Cooling System: Ultra-quiet Arctic 120x120x25mm 12-volt case fan with 9 black blades and a long life fluid dynamic bearing. The low-speed cooling mode (lower LED) runs at approximately 900 RPM and produces up to 67 CFM airflow and approximately 11 dB(A) noise level. The high-speed cooling mode (upper LED) runs at approximately 1400 RPM and produces up to 90 CFM airflow and approximately 20 dB(A) noise level.
  • G17 Cooling System: Noctua 120x120x25mm 12-volt case fan with 9 gray blades and a long life ball bearing. The low-speed cooling mode (lower LED) runs at approximately 1200 RPM and produces up to 77 CFM airflow and approximately 15 dB(A) noise level. The high-speed cooling mode (upper LED) runs at approximately 1700 RPM and produces up to 97 CFM airflow and approximately 25 dB(A) noise level.
  • Modular Cooling System: Bolted connection for easy upgrade, exchange, servicing or cleaning. Cooling systems are available to purchase separately.
  • Modular Fan: Standard 2/3/4-pin fan connector for easy upgrade, exchange, servicing or cleaning with virtually any 120x120x25mm fan. Fans are available to purchase separately. User/customer supplied replacement fans must meet the following specifications: 1) 120x120x25mm +/-1mm in thickness, 2) 2-pin, 3-pin or 4-pin compact fan connector, 3) 12V, 4) 0.42A max, and 5) low-speed resistor 68 Ohms 3 Watt resistor compatibility.
  • Air Deflector: User can choose to install the optional air deflector to provide an increase in directed cooling performance and to prevent air from hitting their hands.
  • Note: See Product Setup page for product setup, operation and additional user guide resources.

Power Supply
  • North America orders from USA, Canada or Mexico ship with a 100-240V AC input and 12V output power supply with a fixed Type A (USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan) plug.
  • International orders ship with a 100-240V AC input and 12V output power supply with Type A (USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan), Type C (Europe, South America, Asia), Type G (United Kingdom, Ireland), and Type I (Australia, New Zealand, China) interchangeable plugs.
  • A Replacement Power Supply is available to purchase separately.
  • Note: SVALT products may only be used with the certified and marked LPS (Limited Power Supply) power supply.

Device Compatibility
  • Compatible Apple / Mac Laptops: MacBook Pro 16/14” M1 Max/Pro 2021, MacBook Pro 13” M1 2020-2021, MacBook Pro 16/15/13” TouchBar 2016-2020, MacBook Pro 15/13” Retina 2012-2015, MacBook Air 13” M1 2020-2021, MacBook Air 13” Retina 2018-2020, MacBook Air 13/11” 2008-2017, MacBook 12” Retina 2015-2018, and more based on the compatibility criterial listed below.
  • Compatible PC Laptops: Oversized gaming to small PC laptops per the compatibility criterial listed below.
  • Compatibility Criteria - Types: Works with laptops operated in open-screen or closed-screen clamshell mode.
  • Compatibility Criteria - Fit: Works with all Mac and PC laptops that are at least 9.5 inches wide (side-to-side) and 10.25 inches deep (front-to-back). We are not aware of any laptop made that is too large or too heavy for the Cooling Stand’s substantial heavy bolt and oversized metal support structure.
  • Compatibility Criteria - Cooling: Works with laptop built-in cooling system designs and layouts of which we are aware. Cooling performance improves with devices that have the following attributes, where more attributes result in more cooling: 1) Metal enclosures / chassis to absorb heat and then transfer it to cooling airflow. 2) Laptop used without customer installed surface covering that traps heat, reducing the ability to transfer heat to surroundings. 3) Larger laptop size for increased surface area cooling. 4) Hot air exhaust vents located along the back screen hinge edge to exhaust rising hot air. 5) Cool air intake vents located on the bottom underside surface, along the front edge, or along the front portion of the side edges to pull in fresh cool air.
  • Compatibility Criteria - User Accessories: The Cooling Stand’s solid front panel blocks cooling fan airflow and noise, as well as hides cord clutter and user accessories. When placing user accessory items that generate heat, then some portion of that heat will transfer to the laptop through line-of-site proximity heat radiation, rising hot air currents, and/or fan driven air movement. To lessen heat transfer to the laptop, or when maximum laptop cooling is desired, then avoid placing items that generate heat close to the laptop. When placing items under the cooling fan, then note the maximum available open space under the fan is 2.125 inches in height. Placing large and/or tall items directly under the fan will reduce fan efficiency, lower airflow and/or increased noise. To lessen these effects, do not place tall user accessories directly under the fan intake, and for maximum cooling efficiency, do not place anything under or around the fan.
