I CAMPED WITH MY OLD BUDDIES LAST SUMMER. IT WAS HOT BUT WE REALLY DIDN’T MIND IT UNTIL…
WE GOT INSIDE THE TENT. IT WAS LIKE AN OVEN. WE DIDN’T SLEEP AT ALL!
That experience taught me a lesson: I should bring a portable camping fan the next time I go outdoors.
Camping fans can keep you comfy inside a tent so you can sleep better. It can also circulate air during cold weather, thereby preventing condensation.
In looking for a camping fan, size is just one factor. You’d naturally want a lightweight unit so that bringing it won’t be a problem. You should also consider the battery, the noise it makes when in operation, and of course, the price.
O2COOL 10-INCH PORTABLE FAN
Here’s a good choice if you want a powerful and compact camping fan. It has a built-in handle designed to make transport of the unit a lot easier. It’s very lightweight at 2.3 pounds. It measures 4 x 13.1 x 12.1 inches. It makes use of 6-D type batteries.
O2COOL 5-INCH PORTABLE FAN
The smaller brother of the preceding item, this 5-inch portable fan from O2 is predictably not that powerful. But it is cheap and very light at just 12 ounces. You’ll need a couple of D batteries for this fan.
DIZAUL PORTABLE FAN
Here’s another lightweight portable fan that’s cheap and powerful enough to provide ventilation as long as it is within close range. What I like about this portable fan is that you can use your smartphone or tablet to power it. With a 4-inch body, it is very easy to carry. It also has a bright LED light which can come in handy when night time comes.
IMAGE PORTABLE CEILING FAN
This is a versatile product as it not only works as a camping ceiling but also a lantern. You can hang it or position it on the ground. It only has two fan settings but the high setting is enough to keep you cool even on a warm night. And it’s cheap!
O2COOL 10-INCH PORTABLE FAN WITH LIGHTS
This is basically the product I mentioned in #5 but with LED lights. The addition of the lights makes this the runaway winner in my choice. You’re not only getting a compact and powerful fan but also a lantern. The lights have 3 settings. Best camping fan today, no doubt about it.
