The fan comes in black and red and plugs directly into your computer's USB port for power. It only runs at one speed, but it does tilt to cool you off with its breeze. I like it a lot more than the last USB fan offered by Urban Outfitters, but I must admit it's no Dyson. But luckily, at $18, it doesn't carry the Dyson's price tag. Your wallet will thank me later.
Today is hot, ridiculously hot, in San Francisco (99 degrees hot), and as much as I love a good heat wave, this geek's gotta get herself a desk fan. And why settle for an ordinary fan when I can have one that looks fun and tropical like the ones below? And for extra geek points, they are both USB-powered — no batteries needed! The yellow Holywood USB fan costs $9 and includes a flexible neck so you can get it at just the right angle, while the blue USB flexible fan is only $7 and is a low power consumption fan. In the meantime, excuse me while I go douse myself in cold water.
There is a small army of USB fans on the market, but have you seen one as cute and pre-school ready as this? This tropical USB Miss Piggy fan is one of those USB accessories that you either love or hate...and for me I can't help but go ahhhhhh when I look at it.
Perfect for keeping cool during those hot summer days, this fan can easily be powered up via a USB port or with two AA batteries. And don't worry about disturbing your fellow colleagues because the inner fan is really quiet, so no one will ever know you have a lovely breeze at your desk. You can also adjust the trunk of the palm tree any way you'd like to achieve that perfect position. Priced at only $12.
