At nearly 20" wide by 13" deep and 3" tall, the Strike Force SF-19 is slightly oversize compared to other notebook coolers, however the primarily plastic construction with rubber accents and metal mesh weighs just a little over four pounds. It comes well protected in a large retail box with user manual, AC adapter and USB 3.0 type A to mini type B cable.

The bottom of the unit has an access panel to get to the dual 140mm fans inside. Although the built-in fan speed controller offers adjustment from 1200-2600rpm there are no specifications available on the fans themselves, and any make or model number has been blacked out. They do appear to have standard 3pin connectors and two fan headers on either side would allow easy replacement. The rubber piece at the top center of the cooler has a cutout hand grip making the SF-19 easy to take with you on the go.

The left side features the LED on/off switch as well as color selector and fan speed control. The right side houses the AC adapter input as well as the USB 3.0 mini type B input and the four USB 3.0 type A outputs. The rubber grips at the top, bottom and corners offer a non-slip surface both for your laptop and for the cooler itself, as well as offering cable management through the built-in slots in the sides.

Let's set a laptop on the SF-19 cooler and power it up.
