Fan roundup | Digital Trends

First on our list is the SkyGenius2 clip-on mini desk fan, a neat little cordless unit that runs on either USB power or the included rechargeable 2,600mAh battery. This compact 6-inch fan features a step-less dial for adjusting the speed to the perfect level for you, and the base doubles as a stand and a sturdy clip for mounting it where you wish. If you need a portable personal fan, then the SkyGenius can be yours for just $23 on Amazon after a $17 discount.

Fan roundup | Digital Trends

If you don’t need a portable unit and don’t want to fuss around with batteries, then check out OPolar’s mini USB desktop fan. This 6-inch fan plugs right into your computer’s USB port for power and uses a 3.9-foot cable so you can position it wherever you like on your desk. The metal body features a cool vintage-looking design as well. A 26 percent discount knocks $5 off the normal Amazon price, bringing the OPolar mini fan down to $14.

Vornado Flippi V8 personal air circulator

Fan roundup | Digital Trends

Another cool desktop model, this one with a more modern look, is the Vornado Flippi V8. This powerful little fan stands just over 8.5 inches tall but punches well above its weight in terms of power with its ability to move cool air at a distance of up to 30 feet. The Flippi V8 comes with Vornado’s three-year satisfaction guarantee and is currently $20 off, bringing the price to $30 on Amazon.

Lasko 4000 Air Stik oscillating fan

Fan roundup | Digital Trends

At 14 inches tall, the Lasko 4000 Air Stik is an “in-between” solution for those who want something more than a small desktop fan but don’t need a full-sized unit. This medium-sized fan features two speed settings and LED-illuminated controls, and the mini-tower can automatically oscillate to better circulate air around the room. A 31 percent discount means you can score this neat little tower fan for just $23.

Costway 40-inch LCD tower fan

Full-sized tower fans are a space-efficient way to cool an entire room, and are an especially great choice if you have kids since these units do not feature exposed blades for little fingers to get into. The three-speed Costway tower fan stands at 40 inches in height and features a modern LCD control panel, remote control, timer mode, and quieter operation than traditional box fans. A tidy $42 discount brings the sleek Costway 40-inch tower fan down to $48 on Amazon for a limited time.

Lasko 2264QM 20-inch Max Performance floor fan

Fan roundup | Digital Trends

Moving into the bigger floor fans brings us to the 20-inch Lasko 2264QM 20-inch Max Performance. Like the OPolar desktop fan, the Lasko has a retro-inspired metal design that is as durable as it is aesthetically pleasing. The 2264QM Max Performance offers three speed settings and although it is a great floor fan, it’s still light enough to hang on your wall with proper hardware. The Lasko 2264QM is now just $59 on Amazon after a nice $19 savings.
