Solar Powered Cordless Fan uses the sun to keep you cool

by

Solar Fan

Until this past weekend came, the area where I live was experiencing near summer-like temperatures outside. I was even forced for a couple of days to kick on the old A/C for a little bit. Most of the time I made do with just some fans around the house, which got me thinking about how much power I must be using running those fans all the time. If I had one of these Solar Powered Cordless Fans, I wouldn’t need to wonder.

As you might imagine, this fan draws all of the power it needs from the sun’s rays. Personally, I think it’s pretty cool that it gets power from the very thing it is working against. A full charge will net you around 8 hours of life, which isn’t too bad. If you find you’re out of juice and still need some air circulated, you can always just plug it into the wall. Of course all of this energy-saving comes at a price. Around $60 to be exact. It’s more than you’d pay for a similar non-solar fan, but just think of the electricity you’ll be saving.

Where’s the power cell? Do I have to put the fan outside in the sunlight to charge it during the day while I am in the house getting hot without my fan? Somehow this dosen’t seem like a very useful idea…..
