If this nifty little gadget looks familiar, it's probably because it's proved a huge viral sensation on social media.

Dozens of TikTok and Instagram users have been showing off their new purchases during the recent sweltering weather.

No wonder, then, that John Lewis have marked this as a best-seller, with somebody new picking one up every couple of minutes or so.


‘Like being cooled from the future’: Dyson Purifier fan now £50 cheaper

Best home fans for every budget to keep you cool this summer

Our Sun Selects team reviewed this portable heat-beater and promptly added it to their pick of the best desk fans.

Measuring just 4 inches, this two-in-one combo fan is available in four colours – white, orange, sage and navy – and charges via a USB cable, one you could easily put into any phone plug adapter.

It has three speed settings, and our reviewer describes it as 'surprisingly quiet' and an essential 'staple for your bag checklist before you leave the house.'

This heatwave hack is ideal for any hot and sweaty commute – but since it can be folded into an upright position, it's also perfect for stuffy offices or if you're working from home minus the air-conditioning.
