10 Best Portable Fans If You Buay Tahan The Heat But Still Need To Dabao Lunch

Best portable fans in Singapore


We all know how hot the weather’s been lately here. While there are plenty of indoor activities and cold places to hide, it’s just impossible to escape from the sun 24/7. So, we’ve done y’all a public service and collated a list of the best portable fans in Singapore, for when you have no choice but to brave the heat.


What you need to know before purchasing portable fans


Portable fans are nothing new, though there are many different versions out there. There are regular handheld fans, USB fans, portable stroller fans and now neck fans emerging. Most fans are charged with a USB-C charger, though some stick to the old micro-USB.

The average battery life of a portable fan is around 7-8 hours. However, that depends on how long and how intensely you’re using it, as well as the battery capacity. So, don’t expect a fan with a tiny capacity of 800mAH at full pelt to last you through those long adventurous hiking trails. It takes a couple of hours to fully charge a fan on average.
