The most popular cooling pad models in their array of coolers these days are called Logitech Lapdesks. The best among the Lapdesks coolers are;

I) Logitech Comfort Lapdesk
II) Logitech Comfort Lapdesk N500
III) Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700

The Pros – These are USB powered laptop coolers and have highly effective and extremely quiet fan/s that really works to pull heat away from your laptop while you’re using it. You can use it stationery like on a office desk or you can place it on your laptop and use it while you’re chilling out on the armchair or couch. Out of the top 10 laptop cooling pads and brands I have reviewed here, Logitech laptop coolers were the ones that had the highest online ratings and mostly satisfied users according to the user reviews I read to write up this article. So if you are looking for a laptop cooler then Logitech seems to be the best in the market today.

In the case of Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 laptop cooler, it is a laptop pad with speakers. As you know sound quality is very low in most laptops today. So with this model you can kill two birds with one stone by getting a speaker as well as a cooler in one device.  Personally I recommend it if you’re looking for a multi-purpose laptop cooler that doubles as a speaker too.

The Cons– However the drawback with Logitech is their products are more expensive than similar products from other brands. However their high quality makes up for the high price tag.

The Pros – Their model called the Targus Lap Chill Mat AWE55US is a specially well made laptop cooler this fits perfectly with your wrists and hands. It is also a pretty big cooling pad which can support even 17 inch laptops easily without any problems.

A key point of this cooling pad is the fans are placed to pull air in from the side so you can actually place it on a surface like the bed without any problems. That means their is no worry about the bedsheets jamming up the fans and stopping them from working. It’s also very light-weight and quiet as well. This makes it one of the best laptop cooling pads with a great ergonomic design.

I think Targus has put in lot of research and thought to make this laptop cooling pads design. It has a very nice slant to it which makes it very comfortable for typing according to many reviewers. It is also has rubber stops at the four edges which prevents the laptop from slipping off the laptop cooler.

The Cons – However the drawback with Targus pads is like Logitech cooling pad they are relatively pricy. You can get this Targus Lap Chill Mat AWE55US at a discount in Amazon. With its quality and reliability people buy a Targus than trust a cheap unbranded and low quality laptop cooling pads.

The Pros – Like you can see in the photo here, the Belkin F5L001 Laptop Cooler has a nice and unique patented wave design and is very portable and easy to use. It is also one of the few laptop coolers where the fan blows air directly on the laptop bottom instead of trying to suck the hot air away from the laptop’s bottom so according to some it is highly effective.

The Cons – However according to some reviews by customers who bought Belkin laptop coolers, these coolers are not very durable and reliable. Many people who bought it are complaining it works well for the first few months and then one or more of its features like a fan etc. start to fail or give trouble. But the low price of it compared to the other three laptop cooler brands reviewed here make people buy these coolers.
