Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet fan... This fan is great, I ran it for 8 plus hours over night with a brand new 4 ah battery on the lowest setting and it did not even lose a bar. I will run a test again over night and see what it does on highest setting. A few up grades would be nice for the next version. 8 hour timer, like the one on the usb charger. This would be a nice upgrade, being that many people are going to use this camping. Some sort of led lights on it would also be nice, Something like what are on the drills, just enough to light up the dial when you touch it. I would like to open one of them up to inspect the insides. I suspect that there is a converter of sorts in it. I have not used the hybrid part of it, It would be nice if it could also function as a charger as well, dual battery option would also be nice for the next version. Overall the product is great the way it is now, upgrades would make it better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool beans Makes working in the Vegas summer bearable. This tool will see regular use for about 4 more months. As for air movement, it is substantial. Haven't quite plugged it in an extension for ac power yet. As far as battery life I've been using the 2.0ah li-on's and it seems to use up around an hour per quarter charge. Meaning after an hour use on it's highest setting, the battery gauge only goes down one led. The hanging hooks keep it up and out of the way. It hasn't taken a fall yet but the design feels pretty sturdy. This will be my most used tool this season. Wish it had a bucket misting system to work with it. Camping will find its most popular supply yet. May buy a second and the 2 5.0ah battery packs for that. Solid fan Ridgid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pushes a lot of air and does not use much battery life Fan pushes a very good amount of air, even if outside on deck and 10 feet away. Barely uses much battery life to run fan at max speed. Very happy with purchase. Nice additional to the Rigid product line. Also, has a plug location to plug into outlet.. no battery needed.
