OPOLAR Mini Travel Fan

I was thinking about how much good I’ve gotten from my little OPOLAR mini travel fan. And that got me thinking I ought to share it with you because it really is cool (pun intended) and I believe it is an excellent addition to any RV.

I purchased my OPOLAR Mini Travel Fan in September 2018. I don’t use it much in the winter, but it gets used a lot all summer. Sometimes 24 hours a day. During the day, I place on the counter about 4 feet from my computer desk. At night it goes next to my bed, again about 4 feet away. I’ve rarely needed more than the lowest speed to keep me comfortable.

Small size is ideal for RVs

The OPOLAR mini travel fan is small at 4.1×1.6 X 5.9 inches and weighs 7 ounces, which makes it ideal for even the smallest RV. Even though it is small, it moves a lot of air for its size. It is quiet too, nearly silent on its low setting.

Three Speeds

The portable desk fan has three speeds. Low speed is super quiet, with enough airflow to keep comfortable. On medium speed at 4 feet distance, the fan is barely audible. On high speed, the fan runs at 3200 rpm and puts out a lot of air but is still much quieter than a small box fan.

USB Power

OPOLAR Mini Travel Fan plugs into a USB port or USB wall-power cube for power. A micro USB cable (3.6 feet) is included, but you will have to buy a wall-power cube if you don’t already have one.

Rechargeable Battery

While the OPOLAR portable travel fan is handy and works fine plugged into a USB port, what makes it truly portable is its rechargeable 2200mAh 18650 Lithium cell that, according to the seller, can run the mini fan for 3-13 hours on a full charge. I have not tested those times, but from my experience, I would say they are a bit high. I think I have gotten eight hours on slow speed. The shortest time results from being set on High Speed while the longest time is Low Speed. That said, if you plan to use all day, you will want to plug it into USB. The battery charges while the fan is plugged into USB but if the fan is running it charges very slow. So you may want to get another battery charger.


The Opolar travel fan includes a built-in LED nightlight. It is bright enough to be useful, but you cannot operate the fan at the same time, so to me, its practical uses are limited.

What’s in the box:
1* fan
1*18650 lithium battery
1* micro USB cable (3.6 feet)
1*user manual
