Amazingly powerful miniature fan, with multiple uses!
This item arrived in a glossy, retail printed box, inside a solid brown protective cardboard box. Inside the box(es) were the unit itself, a clip to act as a desk stand, a USB charging cable, and a really large rechargeable battery. It’s a shame the battery isn’t a standard size, so you can use normal batteries if this one dies outside charge range, but as it’s 2200mAh, it’ll last over 2 hours even at full power, and I don’t think you’ll use it at full power most of the time!
Put the battery inside the easily accessible recess, clip the lid back on and you’re away. The power of the fan is controlled by a small variable switch, so as you turn it, it powers on, then the power gets stronger the more you turn. It goes from a gentle breeze, to something akin to an aeroplane engine!
The long battery holder can be folded straight to act as a handle, or folded back and with the attached clip, used as a desk stand. The standard micro-USB charging socket rounds off this device, as it means you can use any cable you’ve got lying around to charge it up.
On the back of the fan, there are even two clips that you can use to attach the fan to a parasol or umbrella, to keep you really cool even on those hot days when you want to be in the shade. The fan blades are a translucent plastic, and are really well protected against finger insertion by lots of surrounding guards.
I was surprised by the sounds of this fan. When you first turn it on, you get the gentle breeze, and it really is quite quiet. Start turning it up though, and you’re blown away, not just by the powerful jet of cool air, but by the noise it generates – it sounds like I’m turning on one of the servers in our data centre! The fan is so powerful it even blows itself across a desk – I’m certain you could use it to power a small model aeroplane!
I know I’m going to get lots of use out of this fan over the summer, both on my desk and whilst mobile – I can absolutely recommend it to anybody.
