Greetings folks!

So basicaly I purchased my laptop for the sole purpose of gaming (lenovo Z5170)... so as you would imagine I recently purchased a cooling fan since I noticed that its temperature is rising alot whenever I play a demanding game... I had about 3 friends of mine who were in the same situation as I am so they bought one aswell and surprisingly it causes motherboard / graphics card failure after some time so I figured that I'd just connect the cooling pad to my mobile charger via my usb cable to a power source...So my question is will this cause any damage to the cooling pad on the long term since I can't see the power requirement written on it? Thanks in advance! smile.gif 

P.S. My charger's output is 0.2 amperes and 5 volts and this is the cooling pad I bought (dual fans)

at least not to the fans!


I don't think you'll hurt your charger,  fans are brushless motors and low current.


if the fans are spinning at a good speed then your probably ok,  if they look like they are spinning slow then you probably need a higher current output charger....
