DustDefender

Blow the dust away

Dust accumulation can degrade your laptop’s performance

Why is dust bad?

Laptops rely on air flow through the heat pipe and fin to expel exhaust heat. After long periods of use, dust will begin to accumulate on the fin and obstruct air flow. As a result, it can degrade your laptop’s performance, causing lag, or even permanent damage.

How does it work?

When Acer DustDefender is in operation the fan can spin clockwise and counterclockwise, allowing air to flow in two directions. Along with a precise algorithm and specially designed groove on the fan, Acer DustDefender can blow dust out and minimize dust accumulation.
