Product Description

Product Description

The Targus Lap Chill Mat provides a comfortable and ergonomic work surface to keep you and your laptop cool. The Chill Mat rests on your lap and disperses heat generated by the laptop, using dual fans to provide ventilation which can be obstructed if the laptop is used on a pillow or comforter. Simply plug the USB connector into the laptop to activate cooling. The ergonomic tilt makes typing easy while the soft neoprene material provides cushioned comfort on your lap. The open design allows fans to run quietly and stimulates constant airflow. Four rubber stops at the face of the Chill Mat prevent the laptop from slipping. The angled design combined with a soft neoprene construction ensures maximum comfort during extended periods of use and make using your laptop an enjoyable experience

5.0 out of 5 stars Great laptop mat! 21 April 2010
I have a well spec'ed 17.4 laptop and this mat lets me use my laptop in bed,on the sofa,in my lap etc.

Because my laptop is 17.4 and not 17, it slightly protrudes to the left and right sides,but it is still comfortable to carry around while still on the stand.

I've never had a reason to turn on the 2 fans, because I did not buy the stand for an overheating laptop,but for one that does not like soft surfaces as its intake fan is on the bottom. But if you decide to turn them on, its as easy as plugging an USB cable and the noise is not loud. Also the fans blow the air up, meaning they provide the laptop with fresh cool air, rather than sucking out the hot air and torturing the bottom placed laptop fans.

I also like the soft neoprene bottom of the mat and it feels very comfortable when you place it on your lap.

The top is covered in holes plastic with 4 rubber "feet" , stopping the laptop from sliding. The top flexes a little when you press it, but the mat seems resistant to damage from that. Also this way it takes less space in your baggage when you travel with it ;-)

Overall, this is an awesome mat with a soft comfy bottom covering and two up-blowing fans for the folks with overheating laptops.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product 5 April 2011
Build Quality: Very good, can be bent if you squeeze it, but never under the simple pressure of a laptop with hands resting on it. Think of it as a big ring binder with holes in the top, and two fans attached in the middle (blowing upwards).

Noise: If you're the kind of person who works in a dead quiet room, then the noise emmited from the fans is noticeable. But then again so is the noise of the wind outside. If you have music on, or are working infront of a tv, or even in an office, you won't hear them at all. The fans are about half as loud as my laptop fans when my laptop heats up. So in reality having them on can actually cuts the fan noise by 50%.

That being said, if you really can't stand fan noise you can just not have the fans on. Given that the air circulates well under the laptop, that your machine is raised slightly by rubber pads and that there are more ventilation holes in the product than on a cheese grater, the laptop is well ventilated just by sitting on the chill mat.

Cooling: Partly already covered in the noise bit, but definately has an effect. The two fans are excellent, blowing a good flow of room temperature air onto the laptop. I use a program called "speed fan" which effectively lets you control fan speeds in your laptop, but more importantly tells you what temperature various parts of your laptop are. When gaming, both my processor cores and graphics card got insanely hot, to the point where the air coming out of the fan vent could scold the skin if left too long. With the fans on, the temperature drops anywhere between 6-8C (by about 10%).

In regular use, my core temperatures drop by well over 10C, by about 20%.

All in all, its a solid product, it's a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good product 1 Nov 2010
By Hilary
I bought this chill mat for my daughter after overheating caused her laptop to continually cut out and left me with a 100 repair bill. Having established that the main cause of overheating (for this model - HP G60) was using the laptop on your lap (maybe a small design fault here!) or other soft surface causing the air vents to get blocked, it was clear we needed something to maintain the circulation of air around the vents. After looking at the various types of chill mat available, I decided it was a minefield to interfere with the intended air flow by introducing additional fans, and this is the reason I have rated this product 4 rather than 5 star - it really doesn't need the fans, it does the job perfectly well just by raising the base of the laptop and maintaining the air circulation whatever surface it is being used on. The top surface of the chill mat grips the laptop nicely so it doesn't slide off, the base and edges are soft and comfy, and the laptop now runs at a much cooler temperature. My daughter says it is very comfortable and uses it all the time which is half the battle - even the best mat is no good if it doesn't get used. All in all, I'm very happy with this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy 9 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
i rated 5 stars cus its exaclty what i wanted as i was very confused which one to buy as there are many choices and u cant help considering the price for each one,,let e make my review short and simple for every1 who is looking for the best coolong stant mat pad or whatever u call it

-delivery was quick, and the package was good ,instruction mannual included.
-this size is perfect for my 17"acer,but wont look bulky even with 15"or 13" as its sleek,any brand laptop will fit on it cus the 4 raised rubber tips on the corners of the matt are re-adjustable anywhere on the whole matt
-light wieght n comfertable on ur laps or on bed, table etc
-two fans assist for cooling and the noise is not more than my laptop used to make when it got realy hot on my laps or on bed.
-two fans seems to be in the right place as they are cooling my laptop very good so far.
-fans are usb powered no swich jus plug n play ,, still good enough , even works good without fans on, as theres good ventilation space,
-the positioning is not adjustable but its perfect,, no problem when typing for long time on lap,

hope it helps

2.0 out of 5 stars a bit s***
It cools a little bit but is mega loud and very cheap. The fans are exposed underneath so you can only put it on a perfectly flat surface, I.e. Not your bed!
