OPOLAR Misting Handheld

2-in-1 Misting Fan

Having a handheld misting fan that you can take with you wherever you go is great. These portable devices usually have a small form factor and are very lightweight, making them great for taking with you on any outdoor adventure. However, the design of many of these units makes them a bit cumbersome to use as a stationary model, as the typical handle that is meant for allowing it to be easily held in your hand doesn't make a very sturdy or practical stand for stationary use. This can even lend itself to some issues whenever you need both hands free yet still want to stay cool.

The OPOLAR Misting Handheld Fan solves this problem by including a foldable handle that allows you to both hold it in your hand and fold it up for stationary use. The handle itself is long enough to fit comfortably in anyone's hand, making it quite easy to carry and hold steady in order to keep it pointed in your direction. Whenever you are stationary and want to free up both hands, the handle can be folded back to provide a base for it to sit on. This makes the fan quite useful not just outdoors, but also in a stuffy office as well. The fan head can even be rotated up to 180 degrees to allow for the optical angle to ensure that you are sufficiently cooled off.

Review of OPOLAR Misting Handheld Fan Foldable

Plenty of Versatility

Although this fan is marketed as a handheld misting fan, the features and design allow for it to be used for a variety of purposes, making this an extremely versatile model. For example, the misting action of the fan not only helps you cool off, but working in conjunction as a stationary desktop fan makes it quite useful for use after putting on makeup, allowing it to work as a beauty humidifier. It can also be set up in a hot and stuffy room to help humidify the air whenever needed, or it can even be used without the misting function to serve as a regular desktop fan.

Speaking of which, this model comes with three different modes that allow you to alter the functionality of the device. You can set the fan to work just as a fan only, as a simple mister without the fan, or as a combination fan plus mister, adding to the overall versatility of the device. This model is battery powered thanks to a built-in 2600 mAh rechargeable battery, which allows the fan to work continuously between 3 to 14 hours, depending on the mode used. The 55-ml water tank is one of the largest tank capacities we've seen in a handheld misting fan, ensuring that the misting function can last for a long time. Overall, this highly versatile personal misting fan will be a great deal for anyone.

TianNorth Misting Handheld

Customize Your Coolness

Misting fans, especially ones of the handheld variety, are the perfect solution for cooling off on a hot day, especially in dry climates with low humidity. These small, compact devices can often be a lifesaver when the temperature is high, bringing a nice fresh breeze of coolness while you bake in the hot sun. However, sometimes just having a plain old misting fan may not be enough. After all, different people have different preferences for how they stay cool, with some people liking a nice strong breeze whereas others prefer no breeze at all. This makes it difficult to make a product that is perfect to the tastes of all people.

The TianNorth Misting Handheld Fan may just be the closest thing to a perfect solution. This handheld misting fan allows you to tailor your method of cooling down based on your own personal preferences. In addition to the three available speeds of the fan for adjusting to your preferred breeze strength, you can also choose one of two modes of spraying - constant or interval.

Review of TianNorth Misting Handheld Fan

A Cool Breeze Anywhere

The TianNorth compact manual mist fan will give you a long-awaited feeling of coolness on a hot day, and you won't have to worry about it not functioning after a short time. This model has a built-in 2200 mAh lithium battery that is rechargeable, with a full charge taking about 4 hours. One full charge of the battery is enough for 2-6 hours of stable operation, depending on which mode you choose. The USB charging cable allows you to charge the fan in multiple ways, whether through a laptop, USB outlet charger, or even a portable power bank. There is no need to worry about constantly replacing batteries with this fan.

The device has an ergonomic design that makes it easy to carry and hold in your hand, and the flat base of the handle even lets you place it on a flat surface if you need to free your hands. The 20-ml water tank is not the largest we have seen in such a fan, but it should be more than sufficient to help provide you with a cooling spray for several hours of use. Do note, though, that the hole for filling the water tank is quite small, so care will need to be taken when doing so if you don't want water to get everywhere. In the end, this small and stylish personal handheld misting fan can give you a cool refreshing breeze anywhere you go.

KOODER Handheld Fan

Manual Misting Fan

Everyone loves having a nice cool breeze when they're hot, and in dry conditions, having a little bit of mist can make it even better. This is something that misting fans always help with. However, the level of mist that is introduced into the breeze can sometimes be a problem for people. Most handheld misting fans use the misting function to deliver a continuous stream of water through the fan, which means that the breeze produced by the fan is constantly carrying mist. Sometimes this is great, but other times this can present a problem. Misting fans usually squirt out a lot of mist over time, causing a lot of stray water to be sprayed around. This can cause problems in certain situations, especially when around something that is sensitive to water.

The KOODER Handheld Fan with Manual Misting is a great option for those who don't want or need a continuous stream of mist. This handheld fan works well in providing a constant breeze, but it includes a manual mister that lets you introduce mist into the breeze only when you want it. This makes it the perfect option for those who only like a small amount of water spray periodically rather than the continuous stream provided by most other models.

Review of KOODER Handheld Fan with Manual Misting

Highly Portable

This unique handheld misting fan has a bit different construction than most other models, looking more like a spray bottle, which greatly aids its portability. The device is very compact, weighing only 4.6 ounces, and has removable blades and a water tank. These removable parts make it much easier to carry it to different places without having to deal with a bulky item. In fact, this small device can even easily fit in your pocket with the other parts detached, so you don't have to worry about having a bag to carry it in if you don't want. The blade and water tank can then be easily reattached whenever you want to use the device.

Included in the fan is a 1200mAh rechargeable battery that powers the fan, providing up to 6 hours of continuous use. When the battery is drained, it can be fully recharged in just 3 hours, so you don't need to wait all day for it to recharge when the battery runs dry. Charging it up is also quite convenient, as it can be plugged into a USB port or a USB wall charger, whichever is more convenient for you. The base of the fan is flat, letting you place the fan on a flat surface in situations where you don't want to hold it, so it can double as a small desk fan if you so desire. All told, this handy little fan from KOODER will quickly become your favorite travel companion on a hot day.

O2Cool Deluxe

Only Mist When You Want

The O2Cool Deluxe is a personal travel misting fan which looks like a traditional plant sprayer water bottle. The highly compact design makes this handheld misting fan perfect for traveling, so you can easily take it with you wherever you go to refresh and naturally humidify the air. The fan in this model is powered by 2 AA batteries which you need to buy separately as they are not included in the supply package. This makes the fan perfect for those who don't want to deal with rechargeable models and won't be anywhere near a charging option when using it, although you will want to make sure you have a spare supply of batteries handy. Having said that, the battery life of this model is quite good, so you shouldn't need to replace the batteries very often.

One more thing to mention about this model is that the unit features a hand-operated fine mist sprayer, which lets you spray mist through the fan only when you want to. This feature of the fan makes it perfect for those who don't like fans that use a continuous misting spray, which can be quite annoying for some people and even highly inconvenient when using it indoors. You just pull the trigger whenever you want a misting spray, and leave it when you just want a breeze without mist.

Review of O2Cool Deluxe Misting Fan

Good Performance

This model of the misting fan has only one fan speed, allowing for blowing a fine mist of water into the air. Most people should find this speed quite sufficient, especially when used at close range, although those who find the breeze too strong may want to place it further away. Thanks to the flat design of the bottom, the fan can be placed on a flat surface when you don't want to hold it, which means those who want it further away can still find this fan quite useful.

Due to the large 500 ml water tank capacity, you can enjoy the fresh mist breeze for a long time no matter where you are. On top of that, the capacious water tank also can easily accommodate small bits of ice, which can add a higher level of coolness to the spray. Thus, this personal highly portable misting fan will be a great choice if you are planning to use it while traveling to maintain the proper level of comfort. The blades of the fan are not behind a protector, but the blades themselves are quite safe and there is no risk of injury if they are touched while the fan is operating. This fan even comes in a wide array of colors, letting you choose the model with your favorite color. If all of these features sound appealing to you, then definitely check out this effective and affordable misting fan from O2COOL.

In mist mode, the battery will provide 5 hours of continuous operation, provided that the fan is not turned on. And in the fan+mist mode, the battery will last up to 3 hours. Note that in any mode, you will have to refill the water tank since its capacity is just 35ml.

Review of iEGrow Handheld USB Mini Misting Fan

Fully Rechargeable

As mentioned before, the unit is powered by a rechargeable battery through a micro USB port. Therefore, if you are going to take a fan with you, make sure it's charged via a USB cable or a smartphone charger. Of course, you also have the option of charging it through a portable power bank, so those who carry one around for their smartphone should be in luck. On the front panel, you can see light indicators which show the current battery status and operating mode. On the upper side, there is a hole for filling the water tank, which is closed by a rubber stopper. Thus, you'll never run a risk of water spillage while carrying the unit in an upright position.

The multiple modes and flexibility of this unit means you can use it for more than just cooling off. The fan+mist mode, for instance, makes it a good unit to use as a beauty humidifier after applying makeup, or it can even be used to humidify a room that is hot and dry. The fan only mode lets you use it as a typical handheld or desktop fan, and the mist only mode means you can use it briefly just to put some humidity in the room. For whichever purpose you want to use it for, this handheld misting fan will certainly be a happy addition to your home or travel collection.

What Is a Handheld Misting Fan?

What is the perfect solution for cooling off on hot and dry summer days? Having some kind of wind movement with a slight bit of moisture will help cool anyone off, even during searing hot days with no cloud cover or wind. Of course, when you don't have such natural conditions to help cool you off, you have to create them yourself, but how exactly can you do this? Thanks to the march of technology, cooling yourself off is easier than ever before, thanks to the invention of handheld misting fans.

Misting fans by themselves are pretty much self-explanatory. They are fans that deliver a slight bit of mist along with the air movement created by the fan, adding that extra bit of a cooling sensation that can help anyone feel better during hot days. A handheld misting fan is essentially the same as a stationary model, with a few key differences. For one, as indicated by their name, they are small enough to be carried with you, and also, they usually contain their own water supply in the form of a water container instead of needing to be connected to an outdoor garden hose or some other water source. In general, a handheld misting fan is the perfection option for keeping yourself cool wherever you go.

What Features to Compare

Handheld misting fans are special devices that utilize a number of features to help keep you cool. As such, there are a number of important characteristics that you should look for in order to choose the best handheld misting fan for your needs. These devices are a bit different than their stationary counterparts, so make sure you pay special attention to the key details so you know exactly what you are getting.

Type

The first thing to be aware of is the type of misting fan that a particular model is. All of the units here are spray types, which means that the misting function works by the fan lightly spraying water. This helps ensure that the mist is light enough to be carried by the breeze created by the fan, which should ensure proper cooling even from a slight distance.

Water Tank Capacity

Another important characteristic to keep in mind is the water tank capacity. This shows how much water the fan can hold at any one time for the misting function. Generally, fans with a larger tank capacity will be able to utilize the misting function for longer periods of time than fans with smaller capacities, so if you plan on using it for an extended period of time, a fan with a larger tank capacity will be what you need.

Size

As these devices are meant to be portable, the size of the misting fan will be important to know before buying one, especially if you plan on taking it with you. The size of the fan will help show how much space it will take up in a bag or storage area, so knowing the size of the model you want beforehand will help in choosing one that meets your portability needs.

Power Source

Any handheld misting fan is going to need a power source, so you will want to check to see which type the model you want uses. Many of the models available are battery operated and feature rechargeable internal batteries that can be charged through a USB port, whereas others are powered by replaceable batteries. If you want one that can be recharged, make sure the model you choose has that functionality.

Features

Last but not least, the features of a handheld misting fan will be important to know before settling on a model. Many of the fans that are available have different features included, with the features often being in the form of different modes. Some fans will include the ability to work as a fan only, as a mister only, or as both, whereas some others won't include much variance in how the fan can be used. If you need a specific feature included with the fan that you purchase, you will want to make sure this feature is supported by the model of your choice.

Misting Fans - How to Get the Best Results

So, you have decided to purchase a handheld misting fan, and you are probably excited to receive it and start putting it to good use. They seem like simple enough devices that are easy to operate and use, right? For the most part, yes. In fact, they are barely any more complicated than any other fan of the same size, with a misting function added. Despite their ease of use, though, not everyone knows how to get the best from their misting fan. If you want some helpful hints on how to get the best results from your new device, read on, and perhaps you'll find a new use for it that you hadn't thought of before!

How to Use

Handheld misting fans are pretty straightforward to use. For the most part, you can just simply point the fan in the direction you want the breeze and/or mist to go, and let it run. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using one in order to ensure that you are getting the best results from it.

First of all, most handheld misting fans don't create a very powerful breeze, even ones that have high speed settings. This is largely due to the small size of the fan blades, which of course can't really be helped when it comes to a fan of its size. This means that it is best used for keeping one or two people in close proximity cool, rather than cooling off a room or a large outdoor area. For best results, keep the fan no more than an arm's distance from the target in order to ensure that it is providing sufficient enough breeze and misting to cool off the intended target.

Another thing to keep in mind with a handheld misting fan is that the misting function often relies heavily on the use of gravity and suction. This means that in order for the misting function on most fans to work properly, the fan should be held or stood in the upright position so that the mist can be properly sprayed along the breeze. Holding it at an angle will most often result in the misting function not working properly, and with many models, it can also cause water to leak out of the fan.

One other thing to remember about a misting fan is that outdoor use of it will heavily depend on the wind situation. Pointing a misting fan straight into a strong natural breeze will cause the mist to spray back into the fan blades rather than reaching its intended target. If you are using one in windy conditions, and if the model has a mist only function, then simply pointing it in the same direction as the breeze may work better than using the fan+mist function.

Other Uses

Handheld misting fans can be used for more than just keeping a person cool on a hot day. As we already detailed in some of the above reviews, these devices can be used for a few other purposes as well, such as for beauty humidifying or as a desktop fan. If the model you have can support liquid other than water, they can also be used in conjunction with a slight bit of scented oil to help freshen up the air and smell in a room. Some people may even find one handy for helping to cool off freshly cooked food that is too hot to eat. Whatever your preferred use for your handheld misting fan, we are sure that you are going to love it!
