Targus: Lap Chill Mat Review


As time goes by, I find myself with the compute of my lap instead of a table 95% of the time.  Recently my laptop has been super hot at the bottom and my lap is uncomfortably warm.  I started scouring websites looking for the perfect product to help with predicament and found one with Targus:

The leading global supplier of notebook carrying cases and accessories

Targus graciously allowed me to review their Lap Chill Mat:

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, 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 on the face of the Chill Mat prevents the laptop from slipping. The Targus Lap Chill Mat makes using your laptop an enjoyable experience.

Retails for $39.99.

My take:  I would hands down recommend this product to anyone.  As soon as I removed it from its packaging I tried it out and it works perfectly.  It is super easy to use- simply plug the USB connector into your laptop, set your laptop on the mat and you are ready to go.  I have used this mat every time I have my laptop on my lap and feel nothing but a gentle cooling.  I also love the angle my laptop is at when I use the Lap Chill Mat…..I absolutely love it!



I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting.

I did receive product or services to keep for my testing purposes.

  1. You know, I don’t have a laptop so never would’ve even thought of something like this being needed. Makes sense. Sounds like a great product & reasonably priced.
