ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD Heat Issue
I have recently fitted the ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD to my 2011 11-inch MacBook Air (i7 1.8 GHz) and started noticing my base was pretty warm. I had a look online about any heat issues with the InvisibleSHIELD and found this thread but struggled to get any definitive feedback from anyone else noticing a heat issue.
I eventually managed to find another who noticed the heat and monitored the before and after installation temperatures with worrying results, and I quote:
"My CPU temps were seriously high, something around 85 °C, while only idling"
"I immediately pulled the ZAGG from the base of the my MacBook and it now idles at a whopping 10-15 °C below"
This has got to be more critical with the heat damaging the 11-inch MacBook Air but the 13-inch can't really escape. Other aluminum MacBooks should consider the finding on this blog and perhaps do some digging around for advice. It hardly needs saying I have removed all of the InvisibleSHIELD from my new shiny peice of aluminum.
Please read this guys blog for more detailed info:
