My seven-year-old Gateway laptop, though a fine machine, tends to overheat in regular use, often to the point of sudden shutdown to protect itself from thermal damage. In order to keep my laptop running safely, I clearly needed to solve this overheating problem -- and found an effective solution in Targus's single-fan cooling mat, one whose relatively small footprint belies its efficacy at keeping my laptop running for extended periods while remaining safely cool. To add to my delight with the product, it was on sale the day I bought it, making it a great value as well as an effective performer.

I had another laptop cooling mat that cost 50% less than this mat. My son took the other mat. This one was on sale at Staples when I went to replace the other. Since this was about twice as expensive, I mistakenly thought that this would perform better than the other. It actually is quite loud and does not disperse heat well at all. My laptop is still running hot -- the internal fans are constantly running at maximum level. The keyboard is very warm to the touch. If you want a low-end cooling mat that works, try this very inexpensive one first, because it worked far better for me: Targus Laptop Travel Chill Mat™

laptop fan

Comments about Targus Single Fan Chill Mat™:

The computer gets very hot. The fan helps it to stay cool. Works great, not noisy, can carry it with the laptop, as the only plug in is in the computer.

Weak, but functional

By S Gordon

from Oregon

Verified Buyer

Comments about Targus Single Fan Chill Mat™:

I got this to aid my ailing on board fan for my laptop. I had an older external, but it got damaged when we moved and was rather loud.
It functions. It helps keep the laptop cooler, but is not nearly as powerful as the reviews and specs said it would be.
I had $20 in rewards and needed a fan badly, so I got this one. Being between pay days, the cost after my rewards was very nice. It only cost me $2!
All and all, I got what I paid for. I need a fan to help the existing one and it does, just not as much as I'd prefer.
It is very quiet, so doing my online work for school, while everyone watches T.V.is much better with the quieter fan.
If I recommended it to a friend, I'd make sure their existing fan functions better than mine. I'm sure it'd be just fine, in that case.

This has entirely solved my issue w/a hot laptop. It is totally quiet, does not interrupt usage of laptop, and is neutral.

Works well

By Gena

from Lomita, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Targus Single Fan Chill Mat™:

I like this product because it works well and is lightweight. The reason that I gave it 4 stars versus 5 is because there is only one central fan. Another model that I purchased prior included two fans located side by side. It worked brilliantly. Also, two of the rubber legs popped off when I removed it from the package. I replaced them and they haven't come off again. However, I do have to, now, remind my self to be careful with them and check them each time I move the fan and my computer to a different location.

Not good on upholstered surface

By Thoughtful

from Hamilton, NJ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Targus Single Fan Chill Mat™:

I bought the Targus Single Fan Chill Mat to use with my HP A-6 laptop while the mat rests on an upholstered couch surface. I does not work for my intended use as the weight of the laptop presses the chill mat into the upholstery and appears to stop the fan thereby letting the laptop run hot and rev up to cool itself down. If I put something under the mat to raise it up from the upholstered surface it works much better but defeats my original purpose. I could have saved money and just elevated the laptop with a small item to let some air circulate between the couch and laptop.
