The battery-powered device has six different speeds to choose from. It lasts for up to 16 hours depending on which setting you use and it's lightweight enough that you'll barely feel it.

Thousands of customers have been singing its praises, with one commenting: "To be honest I was half expecting a flimsy toy but this is quite sturdy and substantial and well put together. More to the point it also works very well and moves a shocking amount of air."

While another review said: "Lightweight, super quiet even on the highest setting and portable. Love that I can use it hands-free and would recommend it for anybody. I'll be using this in work as it's always far too hot in there; which is where being portable and handsfree will come in useful."

And another wrote: "This is so much better than I expected it to be. The settings go from slight breeze right up to full blast, so it gives a lot of choice about how much cooling you need. It’s also not as loud as I thought it would be. I have hot flushes and I wish I’d known about these last year. I'm very impressed."

Priced at £16.99, it's really a no-brainer. You'll just be wondering what you ever did without it.
