The BlowMeCool fan is awesome for these reasons: This is a quality, rechargeable device. Drop it on the floor it still works. And the back grill and fan blade can easily be removed for cleaning and reinstalled. When fully charged the fan operates for a total on time of 2 hours! When you figure the average hot flash only lasts a couple of minutes, that’s a lot of fan time. One woman left it in her car glove box over the winter and it still worked at the beginning fo summer. It can be charged by any standard USB port. You can even use an Apple iPhone or Blackberry charger. The fan is like a cylinder, and can be hidden in your hand so everybody doesn’t say, “Hey, that menopausal woman is having a hot flash!” The stream of air it emits is cool and focused so you hair isn’t blowing all over the place. Plus, you can feel the air on your face from over 24” away. The On/Off button is easy, and when held down your fan can become a mini-flashlight. I love multipurpose items.
