When you operate an airplane, you depend heavily on your new iPad Mini to get you to your destination. Unfortunately, if you have no way of keeping this device cool, you may end up losing your high-tech co-pilot when you need it the most. That’s why we at X-naut are proud to offer a top-of-the-line Cooling Case for the iPad Mini. This iPad case for pilots is designed to help you to work hard as well as play hard even in tough conditions.


Our unparalleled Pilot Series Cooling Case for the iPad Mini 6 offers a number of benefits for today’s iPad-using plane operators. For instance, our cases can easily switch between utilizing AA battery power or Micro USB. If you use a battery, your case’s test button for the battery will tell you the battery’s status. As a result, you’ll know exactly when your battery needs replacing.


Another reason to choose our iPad Mini case to cool your iPad? Our cases come with spring-loaded latches that make iPad Minis secure easily. In addition to this, our iPad cases for pilots come with fans that generate minimal noise so that you can stay focused on the important task of operating your plane. These cases are super resistant to moisture and dust, so you can be confident that they will withstand the harshest of conditions.

With our cooling cases, we also offer kneeboard mounts and other useful accessories that pilots can use to make their flight seamless and organized. If you have a RAM mount, note that our iPad case is compatible with it as well.

Being in Florida the iPad mini has regularly shut down from overheat. Once the iPad was put into the X-Naut mount it has not failed even once. Battery operated or aircraft powered it has been perfect.

The cooling case is much appreciated. For the price it could have come with a micro USB cord. I have it all mounted and operational but have not tried it yet on a long flight. I added a ram mount and it already was predrilled for that. Glad I bought this item.

My Mini Ipad was continually overheating before I even taxi due to the Texas heat. I have used this cooling case twice and have had no issues with it. I only wish it could accommodate my protective case. Im a little worried that My Ipad has no protection should I drop it.

I have been using the Xnaut for almost two years now. Cessna 182 in Arizona. Yes, in the summer its HOT from the surfact to 8,000 ft. in late spring and summer. I bought this when I was flying a Piper. Now I have airline style vents so I only turn on the Xnaut until I reach cruising altitude. On initial purchase I tested it at the house in direct sun with Foreflight runnning. The screen Temp. got to 133 but IPad did not shut down. No issues in the airplane at all. Highly recommend.

Before buying the X-Nautical I looked at several sites over several months to read the reviews. Most of the reviews stated that their heat problem with their computer was solved. One review stood out and said the unit was flimsy and sent it back. When I did order the X-Naut. I did not know what to expect. When it arrived I was surprised at how well made it was. It was not flimsy The fans are very quiet outside of the aircraft. I cannot see how anyone in a small plane would hear the little fans. As far as using aircraft power I haven’t been able to use it yet. For me the batteries are fine. Ill rate the unit at 4 stars as I have not used it yet. Jim Fitzpatrick
