3 Portable Fans To Keep You From Completely Melting This Summer - Panergy
Summer is in full swing and it’s hot out there, amiright? Many kids are at camp without portable fans or cooling accessories, spending hours upon hours outdoors in the sun definitely not doing a good job of reapplying their sunscreen even though you’ve told them a bazillion times to lather on the lotion... and you finally resorted to warnings about skin cancer and premature aging in the hopes of scaring them into compliance—but I digress.
Your own days are probably hot and sweaty, too, through some combination of commuting, working, exercising, lawn mowing, and/or any number of other outdoor activities. Guess what? There are some highly-rated products out there designed to keep your family cool while you do all those hot summer things.
With its flexible tripod legs, this portable fan can be attached to pretty much anything including strollers, car seats, wheelchairs, computer monitors, bicycle handlebars, and more. Plug it into a USB port to recharge and stay cool anywhere from two and a half to ten hours “depending on winds.” It’s designed with the safety of tiny fingers in mind, comes in three colors, has a light feature, and the manufacturer even offers a 12-month replacement warranty.
Helpful Review: “We live in Florida and realized how badly we needed a fan for our newborn. We use it pretty much on a daily basis. We put it on her car seat and on her stroller when we go on walks. I’ve even propped it up on our desk when I’m working and holding our daughter. The three speeds are great: low usually offers just enough of a cool down and high is very impressive because it’s fast and quiet. The lights we didn’t really need but has been a nice feature to have. Our daughter hates going in her car seat and this helps to distract her sometimes.”
This small USB rechargeable fan can be held in your hand or placed on the tabletop for hands-free operation. It takes three hours to charge and boasts a battery life of five to 15 hours depending on which of its three speeds you use. It comes in three colors and is easy to clean thanks to a detachable cover. A 3000mAh version is also available.
Helpful Review: “Being a female of ‘a certain age’ and prone to sweating profusely at the drop of a hat, I found this little gem of a fan indispensable on my recent trip to Italy. It was very warm there even in September, so the fan was an absolute necessity for me. I've had other little fans with the propeller blade thingies but this one FAR [outdid] them. There are three settings each colder than the other, it's amazingly quiet, and the charge lasts for hours.”
No need to hold this one! This hands-free neck fan rests on your shoulders and goes wherever you go. Worried about your hair getting snagged? No need as it is completely bladeless. It comes in five cool colors including dark, pink, and white. The battery life ranges from four to 16 hours with three available speeds.
Helpful Review: “I bought this as a gift for my fiancé because he’s always complaining that he’s warm or it’s too hot, etc. He had no idea what it was until I put it around his neck and turned it on. His reaction was like that of a child having ice cream for the first time. And I mean he was screaming ‘YAY’ and jumping and laughing. Now he’s a 6 feet tall big muscly man, so picture that in your head. He absolutely LOVES it! I don’t think I’ll be ever to top this gift. He’s still talking about it, and he is not the overly expressive type.”
