There is no gainsaying that the Nigerian market is a place where power remains a big issue. That has increased the need for alternate sources of power in the case the primary one – electricity – fails. This kind of need extends into basic home appliances such as torches, lamps, radio sets and even, fans. Trust us when we say you would not want to be caught out of power on a bad heat day.
On that note, it would be understandable why you would be looking at some of the best rechargeable fans on the market. During the compilation of this list, we made sure to take a lot of your possible needs into consideration.
We went for options that could be used mainly at home, portable ones that could be taken around and paramount of all, those that lasted longer than average units between charges.
Combining those features, we bring you the 5 best rechargeable fans you can buy without breaking the bank.
1 QASA 18” Rechargeable Fan
Starting this list is the powerhouse called QASA 18” Rechargeable Fan. There is no need to restate the height of the unit, but some other features on it need pronouncing.
Ideal for both indoor and outdoor uses, as little as 6 hours of charge (believed to get the fan to a full battery charge) is more than enough to last you throughout the entire night. This is made possible by the highly efficient, sealed lead battery that is under the casing.
Easy to move around, the unit comes with a total of five (5) blades for ensuring cool and fresh air flow. Some of the standout features include the option of operating it with a remote control from the comfort of your bed.
Whenever the fan is within reach, there is a knob system in place to give you more controls. Additionally, the fan comes with an inbuilt night light and support for USB charging for your mobile devices.
2 Lontor 16” Rechargeable Fan
Lontor is a more popular brand for its wide range of rechargeable lamps and torches, but they have done one more with the introduction of a 16” rechargeable fan.
The fan will operate with electricity and charge itself at the same time, giving you the best experience with or without power supply. The design of the fan is such that allows for just two-speed ratings, but those have been engineered to fit a wide range of purposes.
Coming with a charging indicator to prevent over-charging/ under-charging of the battery, a single full charge will give the user anywhere between 8 – 10 hours of use. That time is not only enough for night use but leaves more for the daytime when the power is yet to be restored.
3 OX Rechargeable Fan 18’
OX is not a new name for the fan niche. That is why many would not find the OX Rechargeable Fan 18’ a surprise addition to this list.
Going into the spec sheet of this unit, it can be seen that the fan features a 3-step speed control, packs support for controlling large volumes of air and would work with the least noise emission possible. The fan has been properly engineered to fit the needs of the environment and consume as little energy as possible.
Shipping with a silver coating, the OX offering is as pleasing on the outside as it is on the inside.
4 Generic Rechargeable Fan 12”
When we promised portable units, we found one that would deliver in the Generic Rechargeable Fan 12”. What we found most intriguing about this unit was the fact that it proved to be more than just a fan that could be bundled to different places to serve.
Made with a nice combination of plastic and metal, the singular unit contains a USB port for charging mobile devices. It also doubles as an entertainment unit, featuring a slot for microSD cards. Should you want to listen to your FM Radio, that can be done form the comfort of this fan.
The impressive list does not end there. On the top sides of this fan are lamps that illuminate the whole space. All these, and still manages to properly utilise a single charge to last for more than 6 hours of usage time.
5 Universal Rechargeable Fan (with Light)
The name of the unit specifies that it comes with a lamp integration, but does not suggest that it is a portable unit too. The fan is astonishingly lightweight, tipping the scales at 1kg. It then impresses with the integration of a lamp that does not emit heat during operation.
That ensures maximum power utilisation for the fan unit. While the fan is billed to last longer than 8 hours on a single charge, the lamp will serve you for up to 18 hours on the same charge.
Its hard to look at these options and not agree that they are some of the best rechargeable fans you could look to get yourself. Whether you are a student, bachelor/ spinster or with a family, the options on this list are sure to give you the best value for your money.
