|Laser Cooler OXP|
Toggle your weapons off and then on (press the underscore key twice) when the heat of the actual laser exceeds 60% to attach the Cooler. Then "fire" your laser until all the heat is dissipated.
Do not press the weapons able/disable key a second time too quickly after the first press, otherwise the Cooler cannot attach. The Cooler must spend about 1/4 sec with weapons disabled in order to get the "Laser Cooler attached" message. You can then toggle on your weapons again.
The cooler will automatically detach when finished or when only 1.0 ly fuel remains and your laser opens fire instantly. Stop cooling when a friendly target is in your crosshairs to avoid accidental hits.
This equipment uses a lot of energy as well as the fuel for cooling. It also needs a ship over 130t mass such as a Cobra Mark III. Your cabin temperature will be higher due to the ship's taking onboard the heat from the laser.
Your cooler can be attached to more than one laser at the same time.
You can detach the cooler from your laser anytime by toggling your weapons off and on.
The cooler cannot start working until the laser is overheating. Usually this is not a noticeable problem, except if you use Laser Cannons with high heat where you probably need to wait a bit or should start cooling one shot before overheat.

This oxp introduces the chance of your laser breaking - and the chance of this is much greater if you do not have the laser cooler attached! See here for more detail.
