Most people invest in ACs and coolers before the onset of summer, but the one appliance that is overlooked is a table fan. While these are not very effective in cooling the entire room or large spaces, table fans can be most useful for small spaces as you can plug and place them almost anywhere! You can skim through this list of solar-powered table fans and get one for your workspace, kitchen or other smaller spaces and economically beat the heat.
Sun King Portable Table Fan
This portable and compact table fan can blow air effectively up to a distance of 6.2 meters for better cooling. It weighs approximately 4.86 kilograms and measures 45 x 19 x 39 centimetres in dimensions that make it easy to carry around and place anywhere (indoors and outdoors). The fan has a brushless DC motor that can rotate at speeds up to 1300 RPM and ensures minimal noise during operation. The fact that it can be powered using solar energy, as well as through USB cable, makes it even more useful (it can be charged using a 20 Watt solar panel). While using it moderately every day allows it to run for two days on a single full charge, the 5100 mAh battery can provide a runtime of up to 18 hours on a low-speed mode. The fan has 3 power modes for adjusting the airflow and a minimalistic yet unique design that complements all spaces.
