Keep yourself cool with these USB fans

USB Fans

I live in the desert of southern California, and it can get sweltering. My wife and I both work from home, so we usually have the air conditioning running, but we have found a way to reduce our A/C bill. By using a suitable USB fan on our desks, we can have our A/C at a higher temperature, saving us a good chunk of change. We’ve tested numerous ones, and these are our favorites.

Rechargeable Battery Operated Clip on Fan

Staff Pick

This is a fan we use almost daily when we travel anywhere with our baby daughter. She is just two years old and hates riding in her stroller without this clip-on fan. It is rechargeable, so it’s easy to take anywhere, and while it is charging in the car, we use it to move cool air from the front to the back. If you are looking for a great desk fan, then this is great, too, as it clamps to the edge of your desk. This keeps your surface clear for your actual work.

OPOLAR 4 Inch Mini USB Desk Fan

This fan is one of my favorites to use. The airflow on the four-inch fan offers excellent cooling, and the nearly four-foot cable makes positioning it on your desk simple. I like the square design as well. It’s striking and stands out from the crowd.

Fancii Small Personal Desk USB Fan

One of the easiest ways to stay cool is to have a focused blast of cold air pointed straight at your face. The twin fan “Turbine” style fan looks fantastic and can move a lot of air into your personal space. It’s also a great-looking fan and would look at home in any modern office.

ARCTIC Breeze Mobile

When I am walking around playing Pokémon Go on a hot day, it is nice to have a fan to cool off a little. Because I already have a battery pack with me to charge my phone, this small fan fits in the second USB socket and keeps me cool for my whole trip out. It can also be used on a laptop with the bendy arm allowing you to direct it as needed.

HOLMES Heritage 6-Inch Mini USB Desk Fan

While all the fans on this list are functional, they are a little plain to look at. This classic style six-inch fan will look good on any desk and adds a touch of class to your office. It’s powerful too, and really cooled me down well when I was testing it.

Which one were you a fan of?

I think my favorite fan in this collection is the rechargeable USB fan. I love how portable it is — that clip is strong and grips just about anything — and how I can use it to keep my little girl cool in the toughest of sunshine. She loves it too, especially on full power blowing directly at her face.

But if you are hunting for something a little nicer looking, something that adds to the look of your desk area, then the Holmes six-inch heritage fan is the right one for you. It just looks so much cooler than any of the fans and will make you look much classier than your office mates.
