What are the types of laptop and notebook accessories?

There are many types of laptop and notebook accessories available in the market. They can be divided into two categories - essential and non-essential.

Essential accessories can be classified as power adapter/charger, external hard drive, USB/USB-C hub, docking station, bag and cooling pad.

Non-essential laptop accessories include, pen holder, stylus holder, screen protection film, camera cover, fingerprint reader (biometric sensor), cover stickers, etc.

Although all laptops or notebooks come with trackpads (touchpads) as pointing devices and built-in keyboards. However, it is worth paying attention to the offer of external computer mice and keyboards - for two reasons:

Prolonged work on a laptop's built-in trackpad and keyboard is uncomfortable and inefficient. The laptop's built-in trackpad and keyboard are not designed for long typing. The keys are too close together and it is difficult to type without pressing the wrong key. You also have to be careful with the trackpad, as an accidental touch will move the cursor on the screen and cause quite a mess in the document you are editing.

Replacing or repairing the built-in pointing devices in a laptop is very expensive and complicated. For example, replacing the keyboard in a notebook of a Korean company requires taking the whole computer apart and takes a few hours of precise work of a specialist.

Why should I use a cooling pad under my laptop?

A laptop cooling pad is a great way to prevent your device from overheating. It will also help you control the temperature of your computer when you use it for a long time.

The main reason why a laptop heats up is that the heat generated by the integrated circuits (processor, memory bones) trapped in the small space between the bottom of the laptop and your desk. The heat cannot escape, so it builds up and causes the device to overheat.

A cooling pad will help regulate this temperature by providing an air gap between your laptop and your desk - this can be achieved by raising it on a stand or by using a stand with fans that blow air outwards.

The Media-Tech brand offers excellent multi-voltage power supplies and a selection of cooling pads for larger and smaller mobile devices.
