Razer Phone Cooler Chroma with MagSafe launched for iPhone, non-MagSafe model for Android too
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.
