Taking a look at the outside of the box, the unit is pretty small and compact. The front of the box has a great image of the Summair Light Fan with the Arctic logo. On the back, there are more images of the Summair showing the different features of the fan.
Opening the box, there is only the fan inside its travel pouch. There are no cardboard inserts to protect the product, although it is very compact and light. Removing the fan from the travel pouch, you have the fan perfectly folded up to be compact.
Taking a closer look at the unit overall, the build quality is pretty good. The fan is well sealed and has its logo on it.
The fan blades are less aggressive as they don’t have to push air through a case mesh or a fin stack. Although the fan protection grill will not stop objects such as fingers from being put inside, the housing is durable plastic. The housing also has an excellent cut out to secure the USB connector when the flexible gooseneck is wrapped around the fan for storage. Since it is a fan, remember to use this product under parent supervision.
The flexible gooseneck has a great range of motion and can manoeuvre where you need it, but since it also supports the weight of the fan and housing, it doesn’t always stay in the exact location you place it. However, there is some movement, which can be compensated for.
The knob for the fan speed has an excellent tactile click when the fan is turned on, and it moves with ease to turn the fan speed up to the max 2100 RPM if needed.
The fan works well. While I don’t have the exact CFM of how much air the fan moves, you feel the airflow, especially at the max RPM. The flexible gooseneck takes a little playing around with to manoeuvre precisely where you want the fan.
Since the Summair uses USB 2.0 power, it was quickly plugged into my PC or even one of my many battery banks to use the fan on the go.
