Ryobi 18V One+ Portable Fan Review

This could be my shortest tool review ever as there’s just not too much to say about this handy little fan.

This 10-inch fan is compact, has two speeds and did run for me on low speed for over 10.5 hours on the initial battery charge. It’s quiet and looks good.

It has plenty of adjustment detents that click the fan into the right position.

Because the cubic feet per minute of air flow through the fan is modest, this is not a fan for cooling a room. I’d rate it more of a personal comfort device, or something that’s used to dry paint on a chair or other smaller project.

The 18-volt battery is installed in the back of the fan. This location gives the fan great stability with a low center of gravity.

The only reason I’m giving it four hammers out of a possible five is because its not bigger. But then it would be too big.

Okay, I’ll give it five hammers for its class! Way to go Ryobi engineers!
