Having purchased this item to replace a regular 30 cm fan I can confirm that it will not be able to move the same volume of air around. It is light compact and easy to set up. It is listed as low noise, when measuring its volume it comes out 45db on low which is quite noticable but manageable. On high it is around 55db can be quite annoying. I purchased a quater 120mm fan for £8 which reduced it down to 20db. All in all ideal for a small area and if you don't mind the noise.
Really like the little unit, it works well for it's intended purpose, it's not a room scale cooler keep it real. So to fix it...I replaced the fan with an EK Vardar 120mm. Improved air flow and reduced fan noise by a ridiculous amount.
Now it's a fantastic little cooler with low noise.
Bought this about a week ago during the London heatwave. Don't expect this to cool a whole room, it's not designed for that. As a personal cooler, it's pretty damn great. Strong cooling action when you point it directly at your face/body. It does make a lot of noise even on the lowest setting, so maybe not the best idea for sleeping. But London apartments don't have aircon so I was forced to keep this on through the night and it certainly made it difficult to sleep. It's quite cumbersome to change the cooling pack as well - opportunity to improve the design. Would definitely have to pair this with a bigger fan for room cooling, but at this price it's a decent fan. It's small enough and fits quite neatly and comfortably on a bedside table as well.
Bought for my home office for these hot hot summer days. Ok so it is a little noisey so wouldn't recommend for a bedroom, but it does the trick of cooling my office down a couple of degrees fairly quickly. Advice is don't bother with the ice blocks, it's a nice quirk, but is a lot of effort to change, be prepared with a towel if you do.
Looked very flimsy to start with because when filling the water tank it leaked a little and the ice box was awkward to put back in after a while it worked ok it does what its supposed to do a nice little unit
Overall, this is a great little fan which is better than a normal fan in terms of cooling effect.
PROS cooler air - this fan makes the air much cooler than a normal fan because of the use of water.
Easy to use – It is easy to use and set up with the USB connection cable
Versatile - I originally got this to use at work to plug into my laptop and have it on my desk next to me, however I also think it’s great to use on my bedside table
CONS Volume – actually found this relatively loud fan when it was on more than the lowest speed so if you are planning on using this on the medium or high speed then don’t expect to be able to sleep with it next to your bed very well if you are a light sleeper.
Overall, for the price I am very impressed with it - it is a better fan than normal fan and it’s probably worth the loud noise for the cooler air.
