The new work station at my office in the classroom is situated right next to a very hot radiator that has a mind of its own. Even in really cold weather the heat coming from it, which we are not permitted to turn off or control, is of such a high temperature than I needed a fan. Instead of buying one of the expensive stand along fans I saw this at the very reasonable price of £3.99 and decided to buy it and to be honest its done a fantastic job.
It connects via any usb port where the power is on which makes it ideal as I sit at a desk with a laptop. It comes in a stylish black design with a grey/white tip where the fan blades are located. The extension cord is around 30cm long and its made of a bendy flex meaning you can shape and style it to suit your needs.
The first thing that certainly I noticed about this and was mildly concerned about was how little the blades were. I thought that surely the amount of air being circulated would be minimal. So when I plugged it in first time I was not expecting much at all.
There is no installation at all you simply plug it in and away you go. The moment it kicked in I realised I was wrong and the blades pun so fast the air circulation was good. I really felt the difference as the fan cooled me down and made my “sat at my desk typing” experience more cooler. It really does provided a whack of air way beyond its size and I really believe this is , in terms of relative size, the most powerful fan I have used.
The other plus side for me was the bendy flex which means I can twist and turn it into a suitable position till my heart is content. The usb connector is strong too meaning when I am turning it it doesn’t come out. This bends also make it easy to store either in a drawer or a laptop case. Either way it’s a ideal portable device and I imagine a relief on hot trains or other forms of transport.
One more bonus to add is the lack of noise which comes from the device. This simply means that it doesn’t distract either you or co-workers A mild hum is all that comes from it and if concentrating on work this is totally unnoticeable.
