Here’s an idea we’re surprised more manufacturers haven’t thought of: a portable fan that’ll run off your tool batteries. Ryobi’s P3300 portable fan is just that — a two-speed (1200/1400 RPM) fan that runs (a claimed) 6 hours on a single 18V “One+” series Ni-Cd battery charge..
It’s been an especially hot summer all over the country, and we’re sure you (like us) have been seeking any way at all to stay cool. If you’re inside in the shop, you’ve probably got a couple of fans around. But what if you’re out in the field — or even just in the driveway — where you’re out of reach of easy power? Or what if you want to drag the fan around with you under the car? This looks like the ticket.
We wonder how long it’ll be before we see other manufacturers adding this to their cordless lines.
We couldn’t find pricing for you yet, as the P3300 seems to have just barely hit the Ryobi website. (In fact, the 360-degree view feature doesn’t seem to have been implemented yet.) We can, however, tell you that you’ll find it at Home Depot — and probably only at Home Depot. We’d also bet that it’ll be reasonably priced. Say what you will about Ryobi, but don’t accuse them of overpricing.
