Targus Lap Chill Mat Laptop Pad Review

It is easy to forget, but laptops need to breath. They do not need much room for ventilation. They have small rubber feet on the bottom, so if you use it on a desk, there is sufficient space for ventilation. Laptops, however, have the added benefit of portability. Now you can set it in your lap on the couch, or on the bed. But that gives zero ventilation and can cause overheating and shorten your laptop’s lifespan.

The Targus Lap Chill Mat solves this problem. It has built in fans to keep your laptop cool. Not only does the pad give back space for sufficient ventilation with the laptops built in fan, the Targus Lap Chill Mat gives extra cooling. The dual fans will keep your laptop nice and cool.

The construction was very good. The top is a hard plastic mesh air can travel thru. The neoprene bottom is padded and feels comfortable in your lap. The dual fans perform very well! They provide a nice flow of air to your laptop. They also do so very quietly, so much so that it is inaudible. Power for the Chill Mat is conveniently supplied through a USB cable.

The Targus Lap Chill Mat turned out to be an excellent product. It is built well to last a long time, it looks great and is comfortable to use. And best of all, it also works as advertised! I have bought the cheap ones that don’t work well and also don’t last very long. With an MSRP of $39.99, it is a bargain. If you have a laptop, I highly recommend getting a laptop pad. And I suggest the Targus Lap Chill Mat being added to your list to check out. For more info, check out their website at:
