The Artic Cove Bucket Top Misting Fan is for outdoor adventures

Bucket Top Fan

When you know you’re going to be outside in the bright hot sun for a long time, you want to make sure you have the proper gear ready to go. You’ll need plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, maybe a hat, and if you don’t have access to shade, a few methods of keeping yourself cool. Whether this means getting an outdoor AC or a cool drink, you need to have something on deck.

While it may not do wonders to cool down your internal temperature as much as water would, this Artic Cove Bucket Top Misting Fan would certainly help you beat the heat to some degree. If you don’t have a giant 5 gallon bucket lying around, it can still act as a misting fan. To clarify, this can be hooked up to a garden hose or feed out of a cooler. Its feet are designed so that it can sit atop a bucket or be on a flat surface and feed out of a separate water source.

When using an 18-volt lithium-ion battery you should be able to get 2.5 hours of run time, but using a 4.0 battery will give you around 7 hours. The fan can be used by itself without the misting function, which would be the only time you should use this indoors. This is going to cost you $139.99, but there will be the added costs of the 5 gallon bucket, battery, and charger, bringing it up over $200 in price.
