Not that long ago I reviewed a USB fan product that I noted did a great job of cooling my router when I set it on top. The additional airflow from the fan took my usually very hot router and made it quite cool to the touch. The heat that is produced by my many routers and modems often concerns me - when a device is too hot to hold onto for any length of time, that can't be good for it's internal components or it's life span. I have found that I usually get about 2 years maximum from a router or modem, and I wonder if it is maybe the heat that is causing the short lifespan?
Evercool, a global cooling company based out of Taiwan, have a hidden gem that solves this problem. They've come up with the Dr. Cool - the world's first clamp-on cooling device designed specifically for consumer routers and modems. The Dr. Cool has a very simple and compact design allowing it to clamp onto various sizes of routers and modems and cool them with it's 80mm fan. The universal design of the Dr. Cool would also make it great for clamping onto much more than just IP devices. I have a Dr. Cool here today and am looking forward to seeing how well it can cool my toasty network hardware!
