Tech Tray is a portable folding tray that's meant to enable you to work while sitting on your bed or couch, without your laptop or other objects literally falling into your lap. Each tray has space for one standard-sized laptop and slots appropriate for charging your smartphone or tablet, plus a drink holder that'll hold a variety of cups. This tray comes in both black and silver, and each one will fold flat for storage when you're not using it.
The cost of Tech Tray is $29.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Tech Tray at the discounted price of only $14.99 for a total price of $50.97.

Before you can use this tray, you'll need to fold out each of its legs.
After you've folded out the legs of your tray, you can choose between two height settings for those legs. With the desktop part of your tray, which is meant to hold a laptop, you'll be able to choose between five different angles, so you can keep it flat or tilt it towards you. When tilted, built-in magnets will hold the desktop in place so it doesn't jiggle on you as you work.
Next, once you've picked an ideal height and desktop angle for yourself (you'll be able to change these settings in seconds, if necessary), it'll be time to move objects onto your tray. The desktop part has been designed to hold a laptop, but if you don't need one, it's also a good place for a larger book or a snack. If you use the tablet and smartphone slots, you'll be able to string their charging cords underneath your tray so they don't take up space on top of the tray.
At this point, if you've got a drink, you'll have the option of pulling out your tray's drink holder from the top right-hand corner. This holder will accommodate virtually any paper, plastic or glass cup, and will keep it steady if you move your tray from place to place.
When you're done using your Tech Tray, remove all the items from it and fold the legs against the top again. This will make the tray thin and flat, so you'll be able to store it virtually anywhere, such as under your bed, until it's needed again.
Although this tray is durable enough to hold a standard-sized laptop and at least a couple of other objects at the same time, it's also fairly lightweight. Most users will be able to transport it from place to place in their home, while it's either folded out or folded under one of the user's arms. Plus, it can be loaded quickly into a vehicle, where it'll only take up a foot or two of space when folded up.
The Tech Tray comes in two shades, including black and silver, so you can choose the shade you like best or the one that best matches the decor in your home or office. If you need two trays in either place, you might even want to get one in each shade, especially if they may be used by different people. An upside to both of these shades is that they're both commonly considered appropriate for people of any age or gender.
Aside from using one of these trays indoors, they're also safe to use outdoors, which will enable you to work while enjoying nature. A car is technically an indoor location, but if you're a passenger in a vehicle, you'll be able to use one in there, too, while taking in the view from your window.
In addition to the standard version, there's a deluxe version of the Tech Tray available, which has all the features of the standard one along with two additions. These additional features include a small pull-out drawer on the bottom right-hand side and an LED light that you can detach and re-attach whenever you need to.
The Tech Tray can be altered to suit the height and workstation needs of nearly anyone, due to the fact that you can adjust both the tray's height and the desktop's angle. If you share the tray with someone else, these settings can also be readjusted in as little as a few seconds to fit the new user. Therefore, no one will have to feel uncomfortable while using a workstation that's too high, too low or positioned at an angle that's hard to reach.
If you work on your bed or couch without a tray like this, you might find that you regularly spill your snacks and drinks on yourself or your furniture. Fortunately, by using the Tech Tray, you'll likely be able to avoid this type of mess and the cleanup afterward. Instead of balancing precariously in your lap or on your mattress or cushions, your drink will be able to rest securely in your tray's drink holder. Meanwhile, placing your snack on the top of your tray will make it stay fairly flat so there's little risk of it dumping.
When working on a bed alone or on a couch with a coffee table in front of you, you might have to slump forward to reach your laptop and other supplies. This could cause you some back pain, and over time, you might get in the habit of slumping and do it even when you're not working. The Tech Tray may help you correct poor postural habits, though, since it'll allow you to sit up straight and keep your supplies and snacks at an ideal level at the same time.
Not everyone likes to stand while working, but if you do, you'll be able to use your Tech Tray to help you create a standing desk. Just plop the tray on top of an ordinary desk, and that'll automatically add a few more inches of height to it. This extra height may enable you to comfortably stand and type or write.
The Tech Tray is purported to be durable, but that doesn't mean it'll hold an unlimited number of items, so you should be careful not to overfill it. It should only be holding one laptop at a time and should never be holding more than several books. If you're using it as an eating tray, you should stick to one large plate of food in order to avoid overloading it. If subjected to too much weight, the top of the tray could crack.
Along the same lines, this tray should never be used as a chair for a person (even a child), nor should it be used as a step-stool for a person to climb. If you were to use your tray like this, it would probably just break underneath you. You can safely rest just your feet on it, but keep in mind that this will likely transfer some dirt to its top.
