DESCRIPTION: The Cooling Dock model DH supports and silently cools the prior generation Intel processor Apple laptops with massive solid aluminum heatsink and large passthrough air channel.

The DH and all Cooling Dock models feature a unique and stable leaning configuration for easy closed-screen clamshell setup while the laptop remains connected to cables and safely in a padded cradle with adjustable/replaceable laptop support pads. All SVALT products are made with enduring metal construction milled from solid aluminum in Portland, Oregon. All SVALT products with active fan cooling feature exchangeable right-to-repair modular systems. SVALT quiet and powerful cooling helps to lower laptop temperatures, reduced internal laptop fan speeds, and restore performance potential.

OPTIONS:

  • Cooling Fan Fx: The DH has been designed to work with the optional Cooling Fan Fx accessory that boosts heatsink cooling, as well as providing direct internal processor cooling on 2012-2015 MacBook Pros (Intel Retina) and 2010-2017 MacBook Airs (Intel non-Retina). The Fx can be bundled with the DH or purchased separately later. The Fx comes in multiple fan configurations. The B16 is recommended for most users as a baseline of always-on ultra-quiet cooling. The W20 is recommended for more aggressive cooling that can be used in less noise sensitive environments or switched on as needed. The R17 falls between the B16 and W20. The Fx can be ordered with one of the fan models installed, with the B16 installed and the other two fans included for exchange, or without a fan and electronics for a DIY setup.
  • Future Options: The Cooling Fan Fx can be order separately in the future, and the Fx’s bolt and snap modular system allows for easy fan exchange through accessories, and will work with any standard 80x80mm fan.

SPECIFICATIONS:

SVALT Cooling Dock model DH specs diagram Cooling System Specs
  • The DH heatsink’s extra large backside passthrough air hole and frontside open cooling plane are designed to work with the optional Cooling Fan Fx accessory that boosts heatsink cooling and internally cools processors on compatible laptops. The Fx can be purchased bundled with the DH, or can be purchased separately later.
  • Note: See Product Setup page for product setup, operation and additional user guide resources.
Device Compatibility Specs
  • Compatible Apple / Mac Laptops: MacBook Pro 16/14” M1 Max/Pro 2021, MacBook Pro 13” Touch Bar M2/M1 2020-2022, MacBook Pro 16/15/13” TouchBar 2016-2020, MacBook Pro 15/13” Retina 2012-2015, MacBook Air M2 2022, 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: Most standard to small PC laptops per the compatibility criterial listed below.
  • Compatibility Criteria for Types: Works with the following device and screen types: 1) Laptops operated in closed-screen clamshell mode while connected to an external display, keyboard/mouse and power supply. 2) Laptops with convertible/flip touchscreen, either while in a standalone configuration with touchscreen, or while also connected to a second display and/or keyboard/mouse. 3) Tablets with touchscreen, either standalone or connected to an additional display.
  • Compatibility Criteria for Fit: Works with devices that are up to approximately 1.100 inches thick, but will vary depending on the bottom edge shape of the device. An optional laptop retention pad can be installed to lock the laptop in place.
  • Compatibility Criteria for Cooling: Works with devices that do not have hot air exhaust vents located within the 4.500 inch center portion of the bottom edge (screen hinge edge on laptops). 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 passive cooling airflow and heatsink thermal mass. 2) Devices used without customer installed surface covering that traps heat, reducing the ability to transfer heat to surroundings. 3) Processor location centered and near bottom edge to align the device’s highest temperature location with the most cooling for the largest heat transfer potential through passive cooling airflow and heatsink thermal mass. 4) Cool air intake vent locations centered on the bottom edge for direct internal cooling from the passthrough hole when used with the optional Cooling Fan Fx accessory.
  • Note: See Laptops page to learn about Apple laptop’s built-in cooling systems and SVALT model recommendations.
