OnePlus is preparing the launch of an atypical cooling system, initially presented as a prototype during the MWC.
When we saw this product at MWC
, we believed in a prototype straight out of an R&D laboratory. We didn’t think OnePlus would release it. However, against all expectations, the product baptized OnePlus 45W Liquid Cooler is about to enter the market.
A universal cooling solution
OnePlus presents what is possibly the system of water cooling most curious in the world. Indeed, the cooling takes place via a hose that can be magnetically attached to smartphones, tablets or even laptops.
The concept relies on a magnetic attachment system that can clip onto the back of many devices, including Apple’s iPhone and various devices from Huawei, Honor, Xiaomi, Apple and so on.
The manufacturer advertises a cooling potential of 34 degrees Celsius. However, this performance will probably depend heavily on the smartphone or tablet to which the water cooling system is connected.
But that’s not all. OnePlus doesn’t just offer a cooling solution. Indeed, the brand has integrated a Qi charging coil into the magnetic washer. Thus, smartphones can be cooled and charged simultaneously, with just one cable.
OnePlus’ marketing images clearly show that this water cooling can also be used with laptops. On paper, this idea is appealing. In practice, however, the ergonomics of a gaming laptop could suffer from the presence of the very localized large magnetic puck. Additionally, the cooling performance on a laptop, which typically generates more heat than a smartphone or tablet, remains unproven.
No price at the moment
The prospect of seeing the OnePlus 45W Liquid Cooler arrive on the market is not just a figment of the imagination. The product is, in fact, already available for pre-order on JD.com. Official confirmation of his availability won’t be confirmed until Wednesday, August 9. It remains to know the price of this cooling system.
