Which kind of laptop cooling pad works better, the USB-powered fan ones, or the ones filled with a cooling chemical?

I have an Acer Aspire 6530 and am seeking a new cooling pad for it. (My current Targus cooling pad has a problem with the cord, so it only works intermittently) While looking through Amazon, I saw there were some 'Heatsink' cooling pads which didn't use fans, but instead claimed to cool laptops through some kind of gel inside of it. Has anyone used this type of laptop cooling pad, and was it more effective than a USB fan-powered one?
