As heat waves grip the country, you’re probably looking for ways to stay cool while doing your daily tasks. We’ve been neck fan, well, fans since 2021, when Strategist contributor Alison Freer told us about how she relies on one to keep her cool, even in 112-degree desert heat. We also spotted actress Lupita Nyong’o wearing a surprisingly stylish neck fan on the SAG-AFTRA picket line. This one, currently on sale for just $24, is very similar to Nyong’o’s. It sports a slender shape, with vents placed strategically along either side to blast cool air onto your neck and face. The fan has three speeds, and when fully charged by USB, lasts between 4 and 16 hours to help you beat the heat. It is also available on sale in other colors, including white, pink, and blue, though they will run you a few dollars more than the green model shown.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
