Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SOGH GREAT for a booth in a festival!
I come from museum art world and Im one of those cool people in a booth at art festivals - which typically have no electricity. I'm always flooded with people and to be cooler, and not soaking in sweat on 95 degree humid mid-atlantic days, i got two of these fans! the light breeze they provide on low setting last for the quoted 10 hours easily!!!! that shocked me. I haven't tried the high setting because i'd rather have low setting all day than run out the battery in a few hours and be stuck sweltering. I"m going to do a test run at home with the high setting to see how long it lasts but reports online say about 3 or 4 hours it seems. which is great if you'd like the higher speed for a shorter time. overall, for outdoor events, cookouts... or art world festivals... where electricity is limited. these are AWESOME! I'm thinking about getting two more. for a booth setting, they're totally worth it! even with buying more expensive batteries - they are worth it.

I bought this Ryobi 18V fan to help keep my two dogs cool while they are crated at Dog Agility Trials. Some trial venues are not air-conditioned and provide no AC power for fans or coolers but this fan moves plenty of air to help keep them comfortable between runs.
It easily runs 3+ hours on the 'hi' setting with a fully charged battery and will run all day on the 'low' setting. The Ryobi fan will sit on any reasonably flat surface and the angle of airflow is adjustable from about 30 degrees blowing over the top of the dog crates to a straight-up 90 degrees blowing right on them. In addition the 'j-hook' on the top of the fan can be used to hang it onto the side of a wire pen, or fence.
This fan works very well for my needs and I'm extremly satisfied with it.

I was so glad when these fans became available. I bought two of them to use when I take my dogs to agility trials. They have tons of air flow!! And, they are very quiet. I bought 4 of the nickel cadmium batteries (too many of the reviews on the more expensive lithium-ion batteries scared me off) and that has been plenty, so far, to keep the fans going all day. If I have a complaint, it is that the batteries are extremely difficult to remove from the fan. I think there may be a trick that I have not yet learned!

I've found lots of uses for this fan.
Of course it's great for keeping cool when you're on the job and away from utility power, helping to dry glue or paint, or to exhaust fumes.
But it's so portable that I've taken it with me to my kids' soccer games. Keeps me cool in the sun and keeps my kids cool when they're on the sidelines.
I take it camping! Talk about an easy way to fan the flames on the campfire or keep the smoke blowing the other way! And in the tent it keeps the kids cool. With a fresh P104 the fan will go all night on its low setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaceyNC Wonderful Fan at a Great Price
I just recently purchased another of these fans, for my new pup. I have another one that I've been using for over a year and it still works great and the battery is still going strong after many recharges. I use one for each of my dogs while they are crated at training and at dog trials. They can easily be attached to a crate door and/or you can utilize the folding stand that comes with it. They are wonderful and move air very well to help keep the dogs cool while crated. They do not take alot of space when traveling. On high speed they last at least 8 hours. With the lithium battery....they last much longer. Easy to recharge while on the road or at a trial - especially with the one hour charger. I have also used these fans in the house (during power outages in the summer) and while camping, as a personal fan, in the summer and they work great keeping humans cool as well. I highly recommend these fans!!!!!!

Banged around camping and in garage, The fan still works.
Through the torture it now has a slight blade rub but with the "Big Boy Batteries" it still runs all night in the wilderness. Since the price drop it has become a decent value for what it was intended. This is my second fan, the other did not survive being driven over by my SUV.

I bought this on a whim and thought it might be useful during camping. I've used it plenty while working in the garage as I was doing work with resin, in the house to blow smoke from burnt toast, and did ok blowing saw dust while using a jigsaw. You can't beat it for the price and would recommend anyone with Ryobi batteries to purchase.
