Razer has launched the Phone Cooler Chroma, a device intended to help keep smartphones from throttling during games. The new device is available for both iPhone and Android with the iPhone model supporting MagSafe while the Android model uses a traditional clamp.

Smartphone gaming is big business these days with Apple raking in more money from mobile gaming alone than Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo make from gaming combined. However, most smartphones have relatively narrow thermal constraints which means that gaming performance can drop off when a chipsets reaches non-optimal operating temperatures. Some dedicated Android gaming smartphones have tried to combat this by adding internal active cooling solutions.

Razer has just launched the Phone Cooler Chroma that is designed to attach to the rear of a smartphone, either an iPhone or an Android, to blow air on the rear of the device to help dissipate heat and keep a smartphone from throttling performance in response to getting too hot. The iPhone model cleverly takes advantage of Apple’s MagSafe adapter tech to attach to the rear of a compatible model while the Android (and non-MagSafe iPhone) model uses a traditional clamp to get the job done.

The only obvious drawback that we can see for the Razer Phone Cooler Chroma is that it requires an external power source over USB-C, which may limit its usability when gaming on the go. However, for serious mobile gamers, it may be what they need to help minimize dropped frame rates. The Razer Phone Cooler Choma is available to purchase now for US$60.

Buy the Razer Phone Cooler Chroma from Amazon for US$60.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
