Mobile fanA reader left an interesting comment on a travel blog I was reading recently saying the only way he survives long flights to Asia is by using this $9 ARCTIC Breeze Mobile fan. So I quickly ordered one from Amazon to check it out. Two days later it was at my doorstep, and now it’s in my carry-on bag. It seems to work great.

The ARCTIC Breeze Mobile fan spins up to 1,700RPM and is compact (9.2″ x 4.3″ x 0.9″) and lightweight (3.84oz), so it’s easy to travel with. All you do is connect it to a USB port on your laptop or a portable battery and enjoy the breeze. The fan has a flexible and adjustable neck and is silent so you don’t disturb your seatmates.

I’ll already say it’s a must-have for anyone traveling by train this summer (when there’s usually no air-conditioning). Grab it on Amazon here.
