The NotePal X-Slim as I mentioned doesn’t come with anything in the way of accessories. This is because of a new feature that they are using with the USB cable that powers the fan. It is actually a USB pass-through cable. This is different than the NotePal ErgoStand that we have seen previous to this cooler. The concept is nice, though if you chain anything off of it, you will have to be careful about moving it around a lot as it sticks out a fair way.
You lose any possibility of a USB hub, but since the concept here is high mobility, it isn’t very likely you will be using more than the built in USB ports anyway. For testing I used my Dell Latitude E6410, fitting nicely in that middle 15 inch range. Operation of the fan was simple: plug it into any USB port on the laptop and the fan kicked in.
