If you frequently travel, then one thing that will undoubtedly be very important to you is keeping cool whilst you are traveling. There are several ways that you can do this and most people will simply opt for a handheld fan. However, these are usually not very powerful at all and really don’t offer much relief in the middle of the British summer.
There is, however, another solution that you could consider in the form of a battery operated fan. There are so many different styles out there at the moment and choosing one is definitely not easy because of this. Fortunately, we are able to help you find the best battery operated fan for your needs personally.
If you read on below then you will see that we have tested and reviewed many different models and chosen our top three. To narrow down your choices, take a look at our reviews below of the best battery operated fans on the market right now.
Features: 27cm – 2-4 Hours Run Time – 2 Speed Settings – Rotatable Head - 27.5 x 13.5 x 29 cm – 1.1kg
Number 1 on our list of the best battery operated fans is this model from COMLIFE. The first thing that we really liked about this fan was the general design. Available in a black matte colour, this fan is very simply designed but it looks great. Assembling it was simply a matter of fitting the safety cage which was very easy indeed.
When we plugged the fan in to charge via USB, the one thing that we noticed straight away is how long the power cable is. At 1m, you are not restricted at all. When it came to charging the fan, we were a little disappointed to find that a full charge takes between 6-7 hours to complete which is a very long time. However, we did like that the fan will run for between 2-4 hours per full charge.
When it came to using the fan, we had no trouble at all. There are only 2 speed settings to choose from and you can rotate the head to meet your needs. What surprised us was how powerful both of the speed settings are given the very small 3.5w motor. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a battery operated desk fan.
Features: 8” – 6-16 Hour Run Time – 4 Speed Settings - 25 x 10.5 x 22.7 cm – 953g
Next on our list of the best battery operated fans is this model from EasyAcc. What initially attracted us to this fan is how compact it is. Once we had taken the parts out of the box and assembled them, the one thing that was instantly clear is that robust materials have been used to construct the fan and the protective casing.
Once we had looked into the instruction manual we learned that the protective casing is actually drop proof. Once we had it all assembled, we were able to see how modern this fan looks. Available in black, it looks fantastic. Operating this EasyAcc fan was no trouble at all and we were easily able to switch between the 4 different speeds.
We loved that you are able to charge this battery operated fan via USB and you get a lot of runtime per charge. There were a couple of improvements that could be made. First of all, the two higher speeds could be a little more powerful. Secondly, we were a little disappointed that the fan doesn’t operate. However, this fan is very quiet and we would highly recommend it.
Features: 8.3” – 6-32 Hour Run Time – 1 Speed Setting - 20 x 15 x 10 cm – 458g
Last on our list of the best battery operated fans is this model from FITFIRST. We chose this battery fan because of its very unique design. This fan is designed so that it can be clipped onto any surface where you require cold air. Using the clip is incredibly simple; we had no trouble using it at all.
Whilst there is only one speed setting, this battery operated fan is perfect for pushchairs or desks. It can be charged via USB or via an adapter to lessen the charging time. With a full charge, you are able to get between 6-32 hours of use. We found that the power could have been a little more powerful but we would definitely recommend this one for personal use.
We hope that you now have a better idea of the best battery operated fan for your needs based on our reviews above.
