Facing a hot forecast for your next camping trip? Keep things cool by bringing along one of these Popular Camping Fans Under $30.
General Camping Fan Facts To Know
- Most camping fans run on batteries and an alternate charging source. Some fans come with rechargeable batteries. These types of batteries are a plus because fans do steadily run down battery charge. The size, engineering of fan, and speed/duration of use determine the battery life. Look at individual product descriptions before you purchase.
- Common alternate charging options on many portable fans include devices with USB connectivity such as car chargers, cell phones, laptops, and external, portable power banks. Some fans also come equipped with electrical plug in options.
- Don’t expect a portable fan to offer the same cooling power as a larger box fan. While camping fans work well in confined areas such as tents or when your sitting near them in camping chairs, they will not provide much long distance cooling. As long as you go in with these expectations and adjust accordingly, you will be glad to have a camping fan(s) along.
