Rated 3 out of 5 by nermel11 tent fan
this arrived without a single instruction - written or otherwise. also, we have yet to be able to open the obvious battery compartment....so not sure how well the fan works.
since its plastic, we have tried to avoid breaking it in order to open it...
it may be heavier than we want to put in a suitcase for overseas travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by syzygysb Works like a charm
Bought this to keep in my van, while dog waits for me on job site.
"Ember" is parked in the shade, doors open. On hotter days, however, a bit more air circulation is needed. This fan does the job.
Love that it has a light, too.

The fan was used at 4-H camp where electrical fans are prohibited.
It worked well--did not use too much battery power and provided relief from a very hot week. It is currently at another camp and doing a great job keeping the kids cool. well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MicahPup I love it!!!
It arrived at the right time---Major Heat Wave. I bought it to take to work, but it comes in handy just sitting at the table, and the bonus is, my pup loves the cool air in his face. Initially, I couldn't get the cover off to install the batteries, but all it took was a little elbow grease.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JudgeDoc Poorly made
This is the first time ever that LL Bean has sent me a terrible product. The fan is poorly made and arrived intact but the battery compartment broke upon opening. Do not buy this fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScoutleaderBeth Worked great ... for three nights
Took this to Boy Scout camp last week and it did a fine job ... until it died after three nights of use. I replaced the batteries, and nothing. I had another leader try with another pack of fresh batteries, we double checked that the batteries were placed in correctly. NADA! This item was treated with care and there was no reason for equipment failure. I'm sending this back and hoping the next one doesn't do the same thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBebopper FanFrustrating!
I really want to use this fan - looks sturdy but is lightweight. Would be perfect for my office cubicle. Problem is cannot figure out how to get the battery section off to put batteries in..no directions came with box. White tab says "pull" with picture of discs ..makes no sense. Going to stroll up to local LL Bean store to see if they can help..otherwise its being returned at local store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bailadoraroja Relief from summer heat during power outage
Sit a previously frozen baggie, milk carton, or water bottle full of ice in front of this--instant air conditioning!
Fan is quiet, yet powerful enough to provide a good breeze. Sturdy, convenient to sit or hang up. Great value!

Rated 3 out of 5 by EgansMom Not Impressed
This is not anything special. It is small. We ended up using it only for the baby in the pack n play. It would never do any good to hang it in the top of our tent since we have a very tall tent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLJJ Exactly what we were looking for!
Used the fan/light last weekend during a 90 degree heat camping trip! Left fan on high all night, about 7 hours, still running strong in the morning. Kept running and provided nice air flow for an early afternoon nap. The batteries were not dead, but I did change them out for the second night. The light was a bit tricky to get to work at first. We thought the batteries were dead but the receptors and compartment had to be adjusted a little bit. It gave off good amount of light to get ready for bed. It's packed and ready to go for our camping trip next weekend!
