Our take on the BoraGear Kona I Lite

by Ralph Graves
BoraGear

Efficiently cool your rack-mounted audio/video components with the Kona I Lite from BoraGear. This four-fan array is a low-profile design, so you can mount it above any component. The fans pull 20 cubic feet of air per mint across your gear, keeping it cool and operating optimally.

The fans are mounted on vibration isolators to reduce mechanical noise. Their whisper-quiet motors generate only 15dB of noise — not much louder than rustling leaves.

Highlights:

  • rack-mounts into a half-space
  • four whisper-quiet fans generating 15dB of noise
  • airflow: 20 cubic feet per minute
  • always-on design
  • 19"W x 1-3/4"H x 2-3/16"D
  • warranty: 3 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: The BoraGear Kona I Lite component cooling system is designed to provide ventilation for rack-mounted electronic components. It is intended to be mounted in a standard equipment rack immediately above a hot piece of equipment, such as a receiver or amplifier. It pull cooler air into the rack from the front and blows it across the component and toward the back of the rack. Greater cooling effects are realized when the unit is mounted in an open or open back rack, compared to an enclosed rack. The Kona I Lite is powered by a 12-volt power supply (included). It is designed as an "Always On" unit, but can be controlled by a 12-volt trigger, contact switch, or optional thermal switch.

Construction: The Kona I Lite has a 17-5/16" wide body with a 19" front panel that includes standard rack mounting holes. It is only 2" deep and 1-3/4" tall, requiring only 1U rack space. It contains four 1-1/2" ultra-quiet fans, pre-mounted on rubber vibration isolators, that move 20 cubic feet of air per minute from the front to the back of the rack. The total noise level is only 15dB. The 12-volt power supply has a 6' cord which plugs into the back of the unit.

Enclosed Rack Ventilation Recommendations: Once the Kona I Lite has cooled the amplifiers, the heated air still needs to be vented out of an enclosed rack. The Bora, Bora Lite, and Bora Lite THS cooling fans, along with the proper-sized intake and exhaust vents provide an excellent solution.
