Despite its simplicity, the Arctic Breeze cooling fan is very effective as a personal cooling gadget. USB powered devices are not out of place anywhere, as you can plug it in directly to the wall through an adapter, a portable power bank or any computer. The cable length of 1.8m is also very generous, giving users plenty of allowance to position their Breeze desktop fan as they see fit. The flexible shaft also makes it possible to direct the airflow to any angle, plus it actually can maintain that pose during operation. The base is steel and the Breeze is heavier than what the photos suggest. Even with an energetic and accidental tug of the USB cord, the Arctic Breeze fan will not fall over easily.
With an MSRP of $15, the Arctic Breeze is actually priced lower, compared to most USB desktop fans on the market. The only other item I saw that easily trumps it is the Arctic Breeze Pro, which offers USB hub functionality and LED-lit knob, for only $7 more. As with other Arctic fans, the 92mm Arctic Breeze can maintain a refreshing airflow without producing any distracting noise, which is a huge plus if you are purchasing this to lessen aggravation and cool yourself down while at work.
