The 17" Dual Fan 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 and makes using your laptop an enjoyable experience.
Targus Lap Chill Mat notebook fan is rated4.44 out of5 by142.
Rated 5 out of 5 byjlgo from It broke within 60 daysWaste of money. The cord got week and the electricity stopped. I had to bend the cord to get it work. That helped for another week, now it quit all together. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 byjjs4you2 from Great Chill MatBest designed chill mat on the market, just plug it into your USB outlet on your laptop, place your laptop on it and you're done! Does a nice job of removing heat from your laptop. Has two quite fans that pull the heat out to the sides and away from the computer. Nice materials used makes it look and feel like a much more expensive chill mat. I have bought three over the last few years, my first one I pulled the USB cord right out of the mat when I got it caught on my bed post. My new one I have shortened the USB cord by wrapping up the cord with a plastic tie so it wont hang down when going from one room to the other. My second one is going strong after 6 months with no problems. I also bought one for a BDay present and that person loves it so much that she has bought her employees each one (5!

Rated 5 out of 5 byEdging1 from Weak fans, poor qualityHad this product for about a year. Quit working little less than a year. While the fans were quiet, they were also very weak and do not circulate the air very efficiently. I am not expecting gusts of wind mind you, but a steady flow of air to cool the laptop. It is perfect sized for a 15" laptop. A 17" might hang over a little bit, but not too noticeable. Quality is an issue, since the fans stopped working in less than a year, and the rubber feet to keep your laptop from sliding off did not stay in place after 6 months or so. Eventually, the laptop keeps sliding off of the rubber feet and I find myself pushing the laptop back into place more often than not. The feet have little pegs on their bottom side that plug into the top of the unit, and after awhile they get weak and start popping out. It is powered by plugging into a USB port on your laptop, so make sure you have a port to spare. It doesn't drain a lot of power from your laptops battery, but it is noticeable. It angles downwards toward the user which makes it a little awkward if you are used to typing on a level surface, but seems to be convenient once you get used to it. I use my laptop for web browsing, occasional shows/movies online, light gaming. While it did help cool the base of my laptop to some degree, the air flow (with 2 fans even) just was not strong enough to cool to an acceptable level to maintain laptop performance. I really feel the fan speed is just too slow to make a justifiable difference for what you pay.

Rated 5 out of 5 byDevastar from USB Cable Shorted OutI received the Chill Mat as a gift; to go with my Dell Inspiron 1525, and it worked great until the USB cable which connects it to the laptop shorted out. This was not the only issue I discovered that the fans cannot be cleaned as they are encased and inaccessible. A redesign where the cable is less likely to be stressed to the point of breaking and the fans can be cleaned would greatly improve this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 bylatisha4o8o from I liked this product so much I purchased 2I chose this chill mat for my son because I was looking for something to accomodate his 17" Inspiron laptop. Based on the reviews, product description and reasonable price... I purchased this model. He loves it.Then I was jealous and wanted a chill mat for my 14" Inspiron and decided to use his for a few days to see if it would accomodate the smaller laptop.I loved it and after reluctantly giving my son's back to him, I immediately purchased my own. The advantages are that its USB cord plugs directly into your laptop which powers it without the need for a wall outlet. This makes it as portable as your laptop. The cord was a little longer than I needed it to be so I left it in the original cord wrapping and pulled out the USB to plug in. If I ever need to change this to something else a small black twist would work and still look nice.The fans are super quiet to the point that you can barely hear them and wonder if they are even working at all, but they ARE and doing a great job as well. Now that I have this laptop chill mat those heat lag days are all in the past!I am an online student and use my computer constantly. I normally run numerous programs at once and stream videos and music. I don't run gaming programs on my laptop but sometimes my kids get on heavily loaded servers to play stuff like Club penguin and the computer never gets hot or bogs down at all with the chill mat.This chill mat has an open center which makes it extremely easy to pick up with your laptop almost like it was part of it.The grips hold the laptop in place really well on top and it never slides even with quite a bit of tilting and movement while it is sitting on my lap.It sits at an incline which makes it even more comfortable to work with your laptop. Since my laptop was 14" I had to keep my knees together while it was on my lap to keep it sitting at a working capacity. The 17" chill mat allows me a little more freedom to move around because it is wider across my legs and grips the laptop fairly well.The comfort level of this product is amazing. The bottom has a soft material with a gel like interior which ups the comfort level to plus 10. Since it doesn't have a slick bottom it stays on your lap even with adjusting your legs around quite a bit.I always like to state any cons I have about the product but I honestly just don't have any with this one. I don't mind that it only comes in black and although it seems a bit pricey at about 35 bucks it was a purchase I would certainly repeat. This is one of those items that is nice enough to give to a good friend who has a laptop and they will adore you for it. It has been my favorite accessory to my laptop next to my Logitech nano chip mouse. I don't have any idea of the length of time that this product will endure since I just purchased mine and my son has only had his for a few months but I don't foresee this product going to the trash bin any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 bymagicmom from great productThe laptop chill mat is a great, affordable product that helps keep my laptop cooler since I use my laptop all day long. It's the second mat of this type that I've gotten, and I've had better luck with the longevity than with any other brand of chill mat. It's open design keeps the fans from overheating and burning out, which is a BIG plus as I've used other brands of chill mats that didn't have the same design, and the fans burned out within a couple months. I would highly recommend this particular brand of chill mat over any others that I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 bynavymom from Excellent Targus Chill MatI have 2 laptops, one a Dell the other an HP. I currently have a cooling mat on the HP but it still over heats (this was the one recommended and sold by HP)! I switched the HP mat for the Chill Mat and amazingly the Chill Mat solved the problem. It is quiet and comfortable on my lap. The only problem is I need to order another one for my Dell so my son can use his laptop on the bed and in the car. You can buy this item in retail outlets at a slightly higher price but it's not backed by Dell's excellent customer service. Oh, the shipping was super fast. Buy this with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTat8er from does nothingThe fans move air so slowly that my 13 inch XPS laptop gets no cooling effect that I can notice. I had high hopes for this product after seeing positive reviews; now I wish I could give it a half star, it is that bad.The ergonomic design is good -- it makes a comfortable lap desk for the computer. That said, the little rubber feet that are intended to help keep your notebook from slipping come out easily and mine got lost within the first couple of weeks.I find myself having to balance a regular desk fan under the laptop at times just to cool the surface down so my fingers don't burn on the track pad. I'm now back to reading reviews for chill pads and hoping I can find one that actually works...Don't waste your money on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 byunhappymeV from Broken easilyThe overall design is very comfortable; however, you can't clean out the fan. It is completely sealed off. Had it for about 4 months and it now has a short in the wire that powers it from the laptop. Have to push the wire in to get it to work and then if I move or put the laptop down to go do something else, it ususally stops working at all. Entirely would not recommend this because of the short in the wire. If I could get my money back, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 byklang from when it worksThis product cools my Acer laptop well. However, after about 6-9 months the fans started making noises and there was vibration. I still have the unit but must periodically tilt up the laptop to hit the cooler in an effort to stop the noise/vibration. This works sometimes or I must unplug and replug in. Cleaning out dust didn't help. I figure a flaw in design or I got a lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5 byXScoutZ from Does it's jobNice sized mat with super-silent dual fans. Keeps my performance XPS 17 nice and cool. Base is lined with quality fabric instead of plastic allowing more comfort on the lap. Another bonus is the adjustable rubber grips which can be moved around if you're using a smaller laptop or an over-sized battery. Although they advertise that it supports 17 inch laptops, it's about 3/4 inch short on the left and right sides. Another con would be the fact that this product is rather hard to clean in the event that there's a buildup of dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 byhawtxpink from Great so farI bought the mat with a high-performance gaming laptop to minimize overheating. I like that the mat is USB powered, so there's no bulky power adapter to lug around. The built in fan is quiet but efficient. The bottom of the mat is comfortable on my lap, and the mat is pretty lightweight, so it's not super heavy on my legs (no one likes to lose circulation in appendages during an intense MMO raid). Only complaint is that it's a little big, so not great on portability, though that seems pretty expected for a mat designed for 17 inch laptops.

Rated 5 out of 5 byRSKA from Good buy when on salePros: Raised profile, smooth and rubbery feel to the pad, two fans.Cons: No separate power switch (so make sure your usb port is not always supplying power to the unit which may result in the unit failing over time, some notebooks (smaller and larger screen sizes) do not always sit well notebook tends to slightly bounce when typing (due also to the fact that the unit has a triangle shape with nothing in betweene the top and the bottom half).Conclusion: Good buy when on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 byLondoner from Targus Chill MatThis laptop cooler may not look like much, but it does a great job and it does last a long time. I have been using mine for over 3 years now and the fans still work and are as quiet as they were when new. At first I was worried that the plastic might break or crack, but it is very durable. The fans are in a great place for my Dell Studio 15, and the laptop's own fan barely ever has to run, and the heat from everything else inside barely heats up the keyboard; like it does if I'm not using the Targus Chill Mat.I would highly recommend this laptop cooler, and if I needed to buy another one, I would buy this same unit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTopAgent from Fan bearings won't last - noisy after a monthI've had this for over a month now and its been working great up until now. It keeps the laptop cool, it's comfortable on your lap, and the fans are very quiet. However, the bearings on the fans have started to rattle and this is a surprise considering it's been only a month of use and was expecting that it should last at least a year. Over a few minutes, the bearing noise does fade away, but I fear one day it'll persist. Other reviewers here have had praise for this product; perhaps I've got a lemon. If you can get this on sale i.e. Dell days, it may still be worth the investment for your laptop.

She sits in her chair and is on the laptop quite a bit. She appreciates the chill mat very much. She told me she would get bruises on her legs from her laptop sitting on just her legs and sometimes would get quite warm. She now always uses her chill mat with her new purchase of a dell laptop and think I may be ordering a new laptop for my 90 years young Dad soon. I would recommend Dell to everyone

Rated 5 out of 5 bySgirdhar from Really useful, but some feature updates requiredThe only laptop cooling mat I found that I can use on a table, and on my lap, to cool the laptop. However, I think this laptop mat needs an upgrade in its features. As HP is reducing the number of USB-A ports and moving towards USB-C, this chiller mat should actually be able to have a USB-C connection, and in an ideal world, also be able to work as a hub, providing the user with even more USB ports so they don't feel like they lost a precious port with this mat.

Rated 5 out of 5 bygibbo from EXCELLENT PRODUCTI would highly recommend this chill mat, it's quiet, very efficient and great value.I like the fact that it shuts off once you close the lid and it's angle does give you a better view of the key board making it easier to see what you type.

Rated 5 out of 5 byrvnvet from Targus Chill Mat Cooling StandFirst off, this product has good reviews. That's what prompted me to buy it. It's a simple item that should be a must have with all laptops because it does the required job of cooling your laptop very well...especially during hot, humid summer days. There are no instructions on how to use it...which is the top or bottom, but there are instructional videos on You Tube that explain everything perfectly. I was amazed at how cool my laptop stays with this product and there is no noticable noise caused by the cooling fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGGGrandma from Cooling PadThis pad definitely keeps my laptop cooler. Before buying this, the computer was way too hot. I also used "canned pressurized air" to clean out the various vents in my computer. Not sure which of these two things did the most good. I kind of think it is a combination of both. I also like the slight angle that the cooling pad puts my laptop on making the keyboard easier to type on.

Rated 5 out of 5 bycobra92usa from Not ImpressedI would recommend this product, marginally. The only advantage this cooler had over other models in the department store the day I purchased it 4 months ago was size. It was the only of the 5 available large enough to accommodate a 17" laptop.Though there are only two fans, they seem to keep up with the task of cooling. Due to a somewhat lack of rigidity in the design, the fans are often loud or rub on the insides of their housings. This can sometimes be corrected by lifting my laptop and giving a 'swift' smack to the topside of the fan housing. Makes me feel better, and it seems to work at settling the fans down as well. Other times, the fans are hardly noticeable.Given that this unit uses a valuable USB port, it would be nice if it returned the favor and supplied one in return . . . as large as it is, supplying 5 shouldn't be an issue.All in all . . . it has been getting the job done and has lasted over four months to date. Money well spent to save from another hardrive 'meltdown'.

Rated 5 out of 5 bybribling from Good Product but not for HPI like the mat as a stand for my new HP laptop. It does help keep the laptop cooler and the angle is good, making typing much easier. I cannot, however plug in the fan because of HP's desogn of placing the USB ports in front. To plug in the the stand, the cable is in the way of my mouse on the right side and conflicts with my modem cable on the left side. So, as a stand it is great but as a fan it is just not usable for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 byEmma97 from Excellent!I got this product for my new laptop, since overheating was one of the reasons my old laptop died on me.I find this product to be perfect for the job. The cord, which comes out of the back, can reach anywhere on the computer for a USB. You can even shift the cord under the mat and it will reach the front if you need to. The mat seems a little flimsy at first, if you push on the top, it will flex downward, but it holds the computer nicely. The fabric on the bottom of the mat is nice and comfortable on your legs too (I mostly sit with the computer on my lap).All in all, I am really enjoying this product and I think it will give me a longer life expectancy for my laptop.

My 17.3" laptop fits nicely on it and the double fans are an added plus to keep the laptop cool. The amazing thing to me is how quite these fans are. I wasn't even sure they were working!I have wondered why the fans weren't placed closer to the front of the mat. The left side of my laptop does get warmer than the right.I'm very pleased with the product and glad I made the decision to get the Chill Mat at the same time I made my laptop purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 byFlyingEagle2 from Targus Cooling PadI purchased this cooling pad when I purchased the laptop. I already knew from reading technical information and a lot of blogs that laptops need to be cooled. This was the first laptop that I had ever owned. The cooling pad does exactly what it says it will do, which is cool down the laptop, sit it at a great egonomic angle for your hands durng typing and it is very comfortable on your lap. I use it on a laptop stand, that I also purchased at the time I purchased the laptop, most of the time. Although my laptop does get very warm after 8 hours of use or more, I've tried it with and without the cooling pad, and the laptop is a lot cooler with the cooling pad after 8 hours then without it. In fact, I would be afraid not to use it again after 8 hours of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 byJHills23 from Excellent productThis mat is perfect for my 17 inch laptop. I like that the plug in can be moved to either side of the mat so that it can be plugged into either side of the laptop. The only problem that I had was that it did not fit into my laptop bag and it is hard to use on a solid surface like a table because it slips and slides all over the place. Could benefit from some type of rubber feet or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 byDesertPete from Simple and effectiveDoes what is promises: draws power from a USB port to power silent fans that cool your laptop and avoid heat buildup in your lap. One drawback affects mouse users, but not touch-pad-only users: the surface area is too small to accommodate a mouse. I solved the problem by inserting a rigid board between the two decks; it slides out to give me a mouse pad when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 bymdfeldm from Does the jobDue to a disability, I find myself having to lay in bed a lot. I found my laptop that I was using while laying in bed was getting quite hot so I needed something that helped cool it down. This product from Targus does just that. It's quiet too which helps. The only thing I don't care for is that it now gives my laptop a slight tilt which isn't the optimum thing for me seeing as I am using in while laying in bed, but I can live with that. The one thing to keep in mind is that when you close your laptop it does not shut off the fans. It is USB powered so you have to pull the connection to turn it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 byKarrpk from Do Not use with extended Battery units!I purchased this cooling stand with dual fans to keep my HP 17inch Pavillion Notebook cooler when streaming a long video session; while I do like that the fans are quiet, the low volume of the fans is offset by the lack of cooling airflow put out by them. The largest drawback to this product is that my extended battery does not allow for a proper fit on the stand and when placed evenly on the base, the battery covers up most of the cooling fan surface...I do not suggest that this product be purchased by extended battery owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAutoCadDiva from Does not fit the HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 QuadI bought the Targus Chill Mat Cooling Stand on impulse without checking it out first. I had just spent days checking and reviewing the new laptop I needed and I got lazy; I thought if HP is suggesting it, it should be good. It is ok. The one HP suggested does not really fit the HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 Quad Edition laptop. The feet don’t lineup with the stops. I was able to add sticky back bumpers to the bottom of the laptop to stop it sliding off the stand. The power connecter sticks out a bit far for my liking. Fan is very quiet and seems to work well. I’ve only had it for a couple of week… we’ll see how long it lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 byaveragejoe75 from Works fine but...The product works great. It does keep your lap cool. The two large fans run quietly. But for the price it seems a little cheap. Granted, it's just a piece of plastic covered with neoprene but it feels just...cheap. The only real problem I foresee is the USB cable. The wire guage is too small and it runs out of the back of the unit. IMO its a bad design and cannot withstand much if any abuse before it no longer functions. A better design would have been simply not to run it out of the back at all. Not sure I would buy this again. Maybe for $20 but not $34+.

Rated 5 out of 5 byartgang from Targus Chill Mat Cooling StandThe chill mat is quiet and seems effective. However, one major distractor is there is NO on/off switch; and so the mat is constantly running when the compuler is on.

Rated 5 out of 5 bylarrylaptop from Keeps the laptop cooler!The two fans keep the laptop cooler and it runs off the power of the computer via USB cable.It also serves as a sort of lap desk as needed in a chair, etc. Not sold as such, but a neat secondary use. Makes the typing angle on the laptop much better also. Fans are very quite.

Rated 5 out of 5 byRose7681 from Chill MatLove the chill mat. As soon as you plug in the USB into the laptop the fan turns on and keeps my laptop battery from getting hot!
