The details

This mini USB desk fan has a small and compact design, but that doesn't mean it sacrifices on cooling power. It features three levels of cooling (low, medium and high) while also boasting a silent structure that's engineered to be ultra-quiet while delivering high airflow. You can also rotate the fan a full 360 degrees, directing the air where you need it most.

The SmartDevil mini fan is powered by a USB cord, and is compatible with PCs, laptops, power banks, AC adapters, car chargers and other USB-enabled power supply. However, since it doesn't have its own built-in battery you'll need to ensure that you have an external power source for it on hand.

"This tiny fan is amazing," shared one Amazon shopper, who called the SmartDevil a "smart [addition] to your office or home desk." Another called the fan "surprisingly powerful for its size" as it delivers a strong flow of air when in use.

"Love that I can adjust speed and direction," shared one reviewer.

While people have been impressed by this fan's "good design and airflow,"some reviewers did note that this fan doesn't necessary live up to its claims of being "silent" — particularly when used at the highest level. If you're working in an area where noise could be an issue, reviewers recommend keeping this fan on the two lowest levels instead.

Verdict

Not only is it ideal to keep at your desk while working, but it also is a convenient choice to bring along for car rides or camping trips — as long as you bring a battery pack.

While some shoppers found the highest setting to be too noisy for their preference, reviewers agree that it delivers a strong breeze in a compact tabletop design.
