Getting the Mobile Fan 12 setup is quite easy, just place it on your desk and plug it in and you are good to go. I plugged the Mobile Fan 12 into an open USB port on my desktop and started using it.
Ok so the first that I noticed was that the angle that the fan is at it really did not hit my face. I am only 5’9” so I’m not the biggest guy. When you have the fan on its lowest speed you can barely feel anything at all, even if you have the fan extremely close to you.
As I’ve seen most people do with the Mobile Fan 12 they use it to blow air on their keyboard to keep their hands from sweating. I did this and it did feel refreshing to have air blowing through my fingers as I typed. It just sort of made things more comfortable.
Well if you are at the computer and do a lot of typing this may be the product for you. Having a nice stream of air blow across your fingers while working is quite relaxing and makes you feel more comfortable. The fan even at its highest speed is very quite.
Some of the things I did not like about the Mobile Fan 12 were that it has a fixed stand so you can’t really adjust where the air is blowing. The VR knob is sort of pointless because you can’t really even feel the fan at low speed. There is no power button on the unit so you have to unplug it every time you don’t want it on.
What it really comes down to is if you want to spend the $19.99 on this product. It does its job but is it really needed? That is really up to you the consumer. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Thermaltake Mobile Fan 12 a 6 out of 10 score.
