HeatoN expands his mouse pad series–“The perfect pad” resized

Stockholm, Sweden, April 23, 2010, For immediate release

QPAD, the Swedish company famed for it’s premium gaming gear, today announced the release of a new Heaton mouse pad.

“The feedback I got from the first release has been extremely positive. The one thing people have requested is the same quality feeling in a smaller size. So making a QPAD HeatoN in a smaller size felt like the obvious next step. It’s smaller but still big.” - Says Emil“HeatoN” Christenssen.

“Internaly we have been joking about customers having to check in the HeatoN pad at airports. Now we can provide the same HeatoN pad that you can bring with you in your carry-on luggage”. Says QPAD president Christer Körnbäck.

The surface is constructed in a 3 layer construction. Starting with a high quality cross weave natural rubber base to make it stay firm on the table. The second layer is an ABS plastic sheet to give it stability and weight. The third surface layer is made from a durable Carbytek™ plastic that offers a unimagined feeling of speed in combination with smooth micro precision control. The combination of a spongy 2mm natural rubber base with an 1mm ABS board in between and the Carbytek™ hard top surface gives it a feeling unique for the QPAD HeatoN series.

"With the best glide ever on a hard top gaming pad together with the durability so the glide won't change every week.
