I have 2 with a water reservoir that is super chilled water drops in front of the fan could put ice In the water too. Not very big and have built in batteries. Takes a cup of water and that lasts a good few hours b4 needing to be topped up.

these are available on Amazon as well with a few different options - lights included, clamps, rechargeable, USB powered etc.

I found them to be absolutely superb - I set mine up to blow air across the top of me in the summer and it makes the nights so much more tolerable.

excellent review,
Used mine last week to help dry the condensation in the bivvy before packing up, drained the power bank at the same time, so not just a summer thing.

Yes you can use a powerbank to run it. I have Anker 26800 ones. I was using dual fan high speed, but that does eat the power then tried dual fan low speed and that was miles better with very good airflow.
Great bit of kit. Kept me nice n cool in my bivvy this year.

I think it's one of them things that is literal, it does state add some drops to the pad, nothing more nothing less. It just sounds too simple so we expect there to be more to it

It looks like all you do is undo the cover on the back, add the drops to the pad in the clear plastic holder / cup and then put the back on. No need to try and peel the sticker or remove the cup.

I suspect it works by the fumes from the repellant slowly seeping out of the small cover with the holes on the back and then the fan sucks the fumes out and through the fan.

I thought the same . I thought that youd have to take the sticker / card out and also the plastic cup that houses the pad . That way when you put the drops on the pad the fan would blow through it .

Am also a bit confused re the insect repellent feature on this and is supplied with no instructions. In order to draw the citronella through the fan do you need to remove the silver sticker where the pad is housed in and also take the plastic casing out?
