Over a year ago I looked at the Ninja Laptop Cooler from Vizo which scored decent marks. Today I received the miniNinja from Vizo. This is pretty much a smaller version of the Ninja, hence the name. It's still an aluminum laptop cooler with two quiet fans that help move the heat away from your laptop. It also angles the laptop a bit to help ease the strain on your wrist. So how does it hold up to it's older brother?

The packaging is a simple white box with minimal graphics; overall a nice clean look.
The back of the box has all of the usual stats including the features and quick instructions on how to set things up.
The miniNinja has little extra room in the box, and is protected by two foam peices that sit on the ends (not in the picture).
There's not much to getting this up and running as there is nothing to install or put together.
Vizo branded fans sit under the mesh are powered by a USB cable and aids in cooling the laptop.
The lower right corner of the cooler has the Vizo company logo and name.
You can see in the below picture that it is the same general design as the Ninja. There is still some straping tape holding the mesh in place. In the picture below, the plug for power is on the right.
Power is supplied to the fans via a USB cable. The supplied cable has a pass through USB plug so you dont lose the USB slot on your laptop. Considering that laptops have limited USB ports, this is a good way to save some ports.
