My Foldaway Fan is a round, white fan with a telescopic stand and a circular base that's been made for portability and both indoor or outdoor use. It's specified that the fan has a rechargeable lithium battery, three different speeds to choose from, and a maximum height of 40 inches. Plus, it's been designed to fold up when you're not using it, so it won't take up as much space in your home, office or vehicle as it would at its full size.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Fold Fan Open

    When you want to begin using this fan, you'll have to unfold it if it hasn't been unfolded already. Once you unfold it, you'll see three main parts: the circular part that will blow air, a fairly slim stem, and a circular base. Before you do anything else with the fan, make sure it's balanced on its base on a flat surface, such as a table or the floor.

  2. Adjust Height (optional)

    In most cases, unless you're fine with the fan being as short as possible, you'll need to gently pull upward on its stem to extend its height. You'll be able to extend the stem so that the entire fan reaches almost four feet (40 inches, to be exact) in height, but you may want to keep it at a more moderate level. It all depends on the size of the area you want to cool down, and whether you'll be sitting, standing or reclining. To make the fan shorter again, simply push down on the stem in a gentle manner.

  3. Choose Fan Speed

    Once you've got your fan at an ideal height, you'll be able to choose the fan speed you'd like to use. This will depend on how much cooling off you actually need. The fan will be whisper-quiet at any speed, but you should keep in mind that running it at a higher speed could cause papers and other lightweight items to blow around. Press the button on the base that's closest to the stem to turn the fan on, and work up to one of the higher speeds by pressing one of the other two buttons, if needed.

  4. Turn Off the Fan

    When you're done using your fan for a while, you should turn it off by pressing the button that's closest to the stem again. This will help you conserve its battery's power. You can leave the fan sitting where it is, but to save space and keep it safe from damage, you may want to fold it up and store it in a drawer or cupboard.


  • White

    My Foldaway Fan comes in basic white, a shade that most people find at least tolerable, and one that looks good in a wide variety of rooms or spaces.

  • Cordless

    Due to the fact that this type of fan is battery-powered, you won't need to plug it into an electrical outlet in order to use it. Not only will you be able to avoid dragging around an extension cord along with the fan, but you'll also be able to use the fan in places without electrical outlets. In fact, you'll even be able to use it almost anywhere outdoors, which may benefit you on days when there's almost no breeze.

  • Rechargeable Battery

    The lithium battery that's built into each of these fans is rechargeable, and you'll receive a USB cable with each fan for charging purposes. After you recharge the battery by plugging it into a USB-compatible digital device, such as a computer, a full charge will last through up to 10 hours of fan use.

  • Lightweight

    Since you can use this type of fan in such a wide variety of places, you can expect that you may be carrying it around your home (or another location) by hand. It may come as a relief, then, that each one of these fans weighs less than two pounds. Even a child will likely be able to carry one without struggling.

  • Sturdy Base

    Fans with flimsy bases tend to fall over, which makes them virtually useless when it comes to blowing air, and could also cause them to damage other objects in the area. It's unlikely that My Foldaway Fan will fall over, though, due to its sturdy circular base that resembles a large plastic cake plate.

Positive Points

  • Can Cool Large Rooms

    Some compact fans are only capable of cooling the immediate area around a person, with their air extending only a few feet in any direction. However, despite the fact that it can take a fairly small form when the stem is pushed down, My Foldaway Fan is capable of blowing air across fairly large rooms. Therefore, aside from a bedroom, a bathroom, or a small office, you may want to use one in a family room at home or a boardroom at work.

  • Unlikely to Disturb People

    When you turn some fans on, especially powerful ones, the noise of the air blowing out of them might immediately begin disturbing you and others in your environment. The noise may be so annoying that you decide that being hot is a better alternative to turning a certain fan on. Fortunately, My Foldaway Fan has been designed to be whisper-quiet as it emits air, so it likely won't disturb people who are reading, typing or doing some other quiet activity.

  • May Help You Sleep

    If you don't have air conditioning, or can't afford to run it at a high level, you may find it difficult to sleep on hot summer nights. In those cases, My Foldaway Fan can help you out by filling your room with cool air so you don't have to crank up an AC system or deal with waking up due to overheating. If you've got multiple bedrooms in your home, you might even choose to get multiple fans, which you can use in other rooms during the day and in the bedrooms at night.

Negative Points

  • USB Access Required

    In order to charge your portable fan, you'll need access to a USB-compatible digital device that you can plug the charging cable into (while the other end is plugged into your fan). There's no other way to charge this type of fan, as no wall adapter is included with each one. As a result, if your computer is broken or you don't have it with you for some reason, you may lose the ability to charge your fan.

Critical Advice

This fan is powerful, regardless of the height setting you choose, but to blow as much air through a large room or area as possible, it's best to extend the stem to its maximum height. If the fan's positioned at a lower height, the air may direct itself mainly at people's feet, which won't be very useful when it comes to cooling off bodies or the majority of the room.
