Hi this can be purchased from somewhere like radio shack specs are Output: 5V 2000mA, centre is + positive so really just your standard adaptor will do, this also comes from the targus site hope that helps

What are the other ports used for, and can I use them to run the fans?


Do you mean the USB-ports on your laptop? If so, than yes, you will need one free USB-port to connect the Chill Mat to.

I got a Targus PA248U Notebook Chill Pad, the part inside where I plug the cable in is messed up I think and it won't power on. How do I open it up to have a look to see if I can fix it?


I opened the case and hard wired the power cord directly to the wires of the fans. There are 4 philips-head screws at the four top corners under the rubber adhesive pads. Separate the top from the bottom. Two wires come from each of the fans. Cut and twist the two positive wires together and the two negative wires together. Cut the end off the power cord that is NOT the USB end and strip the wire insulation back. You will find a white insulated wire surrounded by another wire. Twist the ends of each separately making sure they are separated by the white insulation. Remove the circuit board using the tiny screws where the switch is and put the power cord end through the switch hole. Tie a knot in the cord to prevent cord from pulling out. Make sure the USB end can reach a USB port on your computer. Carefully test which wires to twist together by touching each to see if the fans turn. One way will work and other way won't. When sure of correct wires, you can solder them together and insulate properly with small wire nuts or electrical tape. Reassemble case with screws and plug in USB cord end when you want the fans to cool your notebook computer. I hope that this helps.

Targus notebook cooling chill mat. One fan has stopped running after less than 2 months. Can you help


I have the same problem, and I looked inside to see the cause- the interior part for the power is poorly made and comes loose. That's the reason for the one fan not working and it getting weak. Sometimes wiggling the cord or trying to stabilize it will help. But, as I learned the hard way, it will eventually break. Its a poorly made product, and I've had mine about 4 months now and it completely broke today. I opened it and did my best to stabilize the part, but... it will break. As best as I can tell, its a poorly made product and there is no permanent solution.

Chill mat


i have 1 as well and it broke too. this is http://computers.pricegrabber.com/laptop-accessories/m/1754767/

right?

if its the cord's thats broken, its most likely the switch, more specifically the soldering where the wire connects to the switch is prolly broken. i just sawed my switch open w/ a knife, and took a look. now if a wire is loose in the switch, u can either solder it back on, or (in my case i always have the fan on anyway cuz of my **** dell computer overheating) rip the wire off the switch completely and just connected it w/ aluminum foil.

Targus chill mat not working properly


This problem is being caused by a wire becoming disconnected from the switch in the usb power cord. The easiest way to solve this problem is to open the switch using a flat blade like a knife, and either reconnect the loose wire yourself or to completely remove the switch and connect the wires together completing the circuit and allowing the fan to operate. I hope this helps.
