Elegear Cordless Folding Fan Review

by InvisiblyMe
A photo of the Elegear fan on a small wooden table in the living room. There are some green leaves from a plant next to it. The fan is on the shortest height. Around the fan are text labels listing some of the key points of the fan featured in the review, like "9 speeds" and "foldable". Below this is the title: Elegear fan review.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m pretty happy that the summer’s on the horizon. I was thrilled when Elegear asked if I’d like to test out their fancy new folding, cordless fan in return for an honest review. In just the few weeks I’ve been using this, it has proven absolutely priceless.

I personally find using a fan to be very helpful during the warmer months because of my breathing issues from lung damage, but it’s also much appreciated when I have migraines and sickness year-round. For those who struggle with the heat, with chronic illness, or for those who get hot flushes, a fan can be a godsend. 

The Elegear fan sets itself apart from the crowd thanks to its contemporary digital features, foldability, size customisation and blade functionality, not to mention that it can be used as a cordless battery-powered device or a plug-in fan. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything too amazing given the portability feature, but this has really ‘blown me away’. I’ve been pleasantly surprised and very impressed; even with some niggles, it still gets a thumbs up from me!

Read on for more details on this funky fan, my thoughts & a discount code!

Blow Me Over : The Elegear Fan Basics

The Elegear fan a 2-in-1 product that can be used as a desktop or floor fan, with adjustable heights to suits your needs. It can be neatly and quickly folded down for ease of storage or transportation, and it comes with its own carry bag for convenience. It has a built-in rechargeable battery for wireless, portable use, with recharging done via a wall plug and mains electricity. If you want to run it for longer or use it as a semi-permanent fan in your home, you can run it just on electricity. 

It’s certainly a more ergonomically designed, versatile fan with more bells and whistles than I’ve ever come across before. It features a novel fan design for enhanced air distribution & hushed quiet use, complete with 9 speed levels, digital display, a sleep function, and even a remote control.

Main Features: 

  • 2 in 1 design to use as a desktop or floor fan
  • 9 speeds
  • 0 to 100% battery charge in 3hrs
  • Digital display
  • 8 double layer ABS fan blades for efficient air distribution
  • Sleep timer
  • Carry bag
  • Portable & wireless – can be used with the rechargeable battery or plugged into the mains
  • 7800mAh (28.86Wh) lithium rechargeable battery
  • 12.6v UK mains adapter (to run the fan or charge it)
  • 24 months warranty

Unboxing : What’s Included?

The fan comes in an Elegear box, making it presentable for a gift. I ended up with two fans due to either a fault or damage during transit. One fan was securely packed inside a standard Amazon box, but another fan was sent inside a plastic bag which obviously didn’t offer as much protection, though thankfully the Elegear box still arrived undamaged. Inside you’ll find: 

  • The star of the attraction: The fan itself!
  • Circular carry bag with handle
  • 12.6v UK mains charger/adapter
  • Remote control (hidden away in the base of the fan)
  • User manual 
The fan is the Elegear box. It's sat on the small table in the living room.

Looking Good 

This is a contemporary fan in sleek white that’s pretty stylish yet understand, and the streamlined design makes it less bulky than your typical fan.

The fan head is approx 28x28cm. I weighed the folded up fan in the kitchen scales and it came to 2.2kg. The height, of course, varies depending on whether you use it as a desktop or floor fan. You can adjust the length of the ‘neck’ to different sizes to suit your needs, with sizes ranging between:

  • Shortest (desktop fan) Height : 53.5cm
  • Tallest (floor fan) Height : 94cm
  • Foldable size : 13.7cm

The base of the fan has four silicone non-slip strips to prevent the fan from moving when in use. The enhanced stability is good for peace fo mind, and I found the fan robust enough to feel secure in use.

The fan looks sleek thanks to the all-white design and digital screen. It’s predominantly plastic but when it’s set up it doesn’t have any sense of being tacky. Quite the opposite. I think this looks pretty awesome. 

A collage of three photos for the Elegear fan review, showing the fan on the smallest height setting, in the middle and at the tallest setting.

The quality appears to be very good, though I suppose I didn’t find the base and neck of the fan to be as sturdy as I would have liked. Then again, it is a lighter weight portable fan so you have to make necessary allowances for the build. I’ve still found it robust in use and in adjusting the size, so I’d like to think it’ll last well for many years.

In Use

Power : Battery & Mains Electric 

This uses a 7800mAh (28.86Wh) lithium rechargeable battery, which is of course included and built-in. The brand claims this battery can work continuously for up to 10 hours on the one charge, depending on the speed setting used.

This is relatively quick to charge, and according to Elegear you can go from 0% to 100% in just 3 hours. How long it lasts depends on the speed/power level used, and there are 9 levels to choose from. Using the lower four levels gets around 6-10hrs running time, while using the highest level gives around 5 hours running time. I tried to gauge this running time overnight, but I missed the time where it actually ran out of juice. On level 1, it didn’t last 10 hours but it could have lasted around 7 or 8.

Unfortunately there’s no battery indictor like you get on an iPhone to suggest the percentage of battery time left, but it does seem to indicate the flashing battery when it’s wearing down.

This is the first fan I’ve come across or tried with a rechargeable battery, so I had doubts as to how powerful it would be. I needn’t have worried because it’s a pretty strong gust on number 9 whether you use the battery or electricity! It’s far more robust and efficient than I’d anticipated, which is fantastic as you don’t want to lose out on power just to get cordless functionality. 

If you want the fan to run continuously for longer or you don’t intend on moving it about, you can plug it in and run it from mains electricity. This is my personal preference for day to day use as I’ll be keeping it on a bedside table semi-permanently. It’ll then be cordlessly carried and used downstairs or even outside off the battery for certain occasions in the warmer weather. For the time being, due to limited space in my room, it has been sat on my desk cordlessly running on the battery and has been blissful during migraines and sickness. 

Fan Function

The fan has 9 speed settings to suit your needs, which is a heck of a lot of choice for someone who’s only ever used a 3 speed fan before. The first speed is for ‘natural wind’, giving a gentle breeze. This goes up to setting 9 as the fastest and most powerful.

It has 8 double layer ABS fan blades, so 16 blades in total, that rotate outside & inside at the same time. The former is fast, the latter is slow, and this overlap helps eliminate vortices so that the wind is softer and less disruptive. For instance, the typical, traditional fan tends to blast air straight ahead, while the Elegear helps to soften that blow and disperse the air across a broader range. 

It has a “wide-angle air supply” so it’ll help circulate the air whether you’re using it in a small confined space, a large room or even in the garden. 

There’s a curved arrow, a bit like a smile, on the third button at the base of the fan (also on the remote). Press this and the fan rotates slowly to the left about 45 degrees, then back to centre before going the other way. This is a bit like what many traditional fans do, except it’s not just the head that rotates with the Elegear, it’s the base and the whole fan. This is where the grips on the bottom come in, keeping the fan in the same spot as it twists around to circulate the air in a wider arc. It’s a very smooth mechanism that works incredibly well and appears pretty swish in action.

The head of the fan can also be manually tilted, so you can angle it up/down to direct it somewhere more specific. I did notice that the fan neck doesn’t stand bolt upright, it looks to be leaning forward slightly. This actually gives a better angle to the fan when it’s on. 

The Elegear offers far more power than I’d anticipated, which really surprised me. Thanks to the blade design, the air generated is nonetheless softer and more comfortable, which is also a plus if you want to put your face in front of it like I do sometimes.

I’ve had this on my desk, sat perhaps 4 feet away from me, running on just the second speed. This gives a gentle, luxurious cooling and breath of fresh air that’s still noticeable enough. It’s comfortable and circulates the air very well, even at a distance and on such a low setting. 

User Friendly Operation

While it’s fancier than the basic fan, it’s nonetheless very user-friendly. To get started, simply adjust to the desired height, press the on/off button, then adjust the speed as desired. It seems to require one or sometimes two presses to turn it on and activate level one. It has a digital display to show the current speed, and it’s simple to adjust the settings directly from the base of the fan. 

A photo of the base of the Elegear fan for this review showing the buttons, digital display, and the remote on top. They're all white against a white table.

There’s also a handy remote control that has a decent 3m range, so you can easily adjust the fan speed, rotation or the sleep timer with the touch of a button from a distance without even getting up. That’s a blessing for those of us who like to get comfy and not move while watching TV, or those of us with chronic illnesses and pain who aren’t as mobile.

There’s a sleep timer option that allows you to set between 1 to 9 hours of use before automatic shutdown, which is great if you like to nod off to sleep with it on but don’t want it running all night. If you struggle with sleep, a fan can cool you and the room down just enough to make it more comfortable.

Noise

This particular fan uses a smooth, “DC brushless motor” with “multi-dimensional structure optimisation” for quite running at just 50dB. This makes it a pretty quiet fan, and it’s certainly far less disruptive than my current fan, which sounds like a train coming into the station in comparison! 

Folding & Storage

This can be collapsed and folded in seconds, then stored in the soft carry bag provided. This makes it convenient to store or take on the go with you, whether you’re travelling, moving home, popping it in a different room, or taking it camping. The fan has a snug fit inside the carry case and there’s a stretchy net pocket on the side to store the plug along with the carry handle on top.

I’d never come across a folding fan before this one so I was curious how effective it would be in reality. Turns out it’s pretty cool! It’s incredibly simple and quick to set up or pack away in mere seconds, and it’s super convenient for storage thanks to taking up less room when not in use.

All you need to do is pull the head of the fan up, twist the plastic part towards the bottom of the fan to ‘lock’ the neck in place. That’s it. If you want the neck of the fan bigger, you don’t need to unscrew anything, you just pull it up from the top and the telescopic neck extends or goes back down in seconds. I’d expected at least some kind of lever or extra screwing required, but thankfully there isn’t. Just as well because this girl doesn’t like more screwing than is absolutely necessary ????.

The Elegear fan packed inside the grey circular bag. It sits atop the small table in the front room like the other photos of the fan.
The fan folded up & snuggly fitted inside its own carry case.

The base of the fan has a rubberised handle that can be pulled out/pushed in so you can more easily carry the folded up fan wherever you want it to go. 

What I also find pretty quirky is that is has a little storage slot hidden away in the base of the fan. You can just pop the remote in there so you don’t lose it.

I would say that you’d want to be careful when moving this fan around given the potential for issues around the blade attachment.

Charging

This has a rechargeable battery that’s built into the fan, so there’s no need to remove anything to charge it. Just plug the fan into the mains and voila! 

The charging has worked well during the time I’ve been testing this out. I think the 3hr period to go from 0% to 100% very appealing and quicker than I’d anticipated it would be, so there’s no having to leave it on charging overnight. That said, I tried to confirm this and it seemed to take longer than 3 hours, perhaps 4 hours, but I couldn’t say for sure exactly how long. The battery symbol flashes when charging and goes solid when it’s fully charged, but there’s no way to know how far off from a full charge you are.

Unfortunately, the fan itself needs to be switched off for it to charge, so if you’ve got it plugged in and you’re using it then it won’t charge at the same time. That’s the only downside I see here. 

Cleaning

Cleaning a traditional fan can be fiddly, especially if it’s one with a stubborn cage that refuses to come off and blades that can’t be fully cleaned. The Elegear fan is easy to deconstruct, meaning you can take it apart in 3 steps to wash and clean the fan and blades. Great for hygiene and your stress levels.

Price

At the time of this review, the Elegear fan retails for around £52.99. 

Having used this, I’ve got a better feel for the quality, effectiveness and functionality behind the somewhat higher price tag. A traditional fan could range from £15, while USB desktop fans can be around £30, fancier cordless types around £60, and some remote operated fans around £80.

Weighing up what you get and comparing against the fan market, I’d say the Elegear is suitably priced. It’s more than I’d want to pay at first blush, and yet it’s a good investment if you get some decent use and benefit from it. It’s more multi-functional, portable, easier to store, more powerful, and easier to customise in terms of power and size, while being more user-friendly when it comes to settings and the remote. 

You get more for your money it should serve you well for the years to come. I do have slight niggles with the fan and I’d be a little weary of any problems with the blades, but the brand being responsive and the 24 month warranty gives enough peace of mind here.

Comparing To Traditional Fans

The Elegear is worlds apart from the traditional, cheap desktop fan I previously had. That old fan had only three speed settings, all of them very loud, and none of them really able to circulate air in the room, only blow it out directly in front.  It was a heavier, bulkier fan that also emitted an infuriatingly high pitched wine on top. The cage was stubborn and cleaning the blades was never an appealing task. The cable was short and so you’d need an extension lead if you wanted to move it away from a wall socket, there was no remote, and it took up oodles of space in the garage when not in use as it was so bulky.

The Elegear is more streamlined, lighter and contemporary in appearance yet still robust enough. It’s far more powerful and more efficiently circulates air, which is the main thing. It runs quietly and the mechanisms are smooth. It’s more versatile, multi-purpose and offers far greater customisation to your individual preferences. I can’t say anything in favour of my old fan when comparing it to this; I would honestly choose the Elegear one every time. 

Any Down Sides or Points Of Improvement?

I’ve only come across three minor issues, and they’re certainly not enough to deter me from giving less than a glowing review or recommending the product to anyone else. 

  1. Fan charging – not being able to charge the fan while it’s in use, which is just a little less convenient. 
  2. Battery – no battery percentage to tell you how much battery’s left. Mine didn’t seem to last 10hrs on level 1.
  3. Remote – can’t turn the fan on/off via the remote.
  4. Blade fixation – the centre of the fan head where the blades are attached isn’t screwed in. I think you need to be a little careful when transporting the fan so as not to damage or jiggle the attachment.

It’s also worth mentioning that unfortunately the first fan I received seemed to have a fault, with a continual, very loud clicking sound once turned on. I couldn’t see anything obviously wrong but it’s apparently most likely damage during transit as boxes can get mishandled quite badly. This is related to point 4, where the blade fixation part gets damaged and can’t be repaired. When I notified the brand of the issue they were quick apologise for the unfortunate issue and to help sort out replacing it. I’ve now got a replacement that, I’m glad to say, is perfect!

It’s reassuring when buying from a responsive brand, seller and place like Amazon that any odd issues like these will be resolved smoothly with a refund, repair or replacement. Don’t forget, there’s a 24 month warranty but there’s also the UK Consumer Rights Law.

Elegear Fan Review : It Blew Me Away

I was amazed by the power behind this thing. The first setting – the natural wind feel – is gentle and yet still noticeable and refreshing. I LOVE this gentle breeze. As you inch up the settings, all the way up to 9, you feel just how much oomph it’s got, which I was very surprised by. It’s capable of being kickass powerful without it being a full frontal assault, providing efficient air circulation in a small or large space. I like that it can swivel left/right and that you can adjust the height very easily depending on your requirements, making it highly customisable.

The all-white design looks contemporary and it’s a ‘breeze’ (pun intended) to set up, use and fold away. The digital screen, sleep timer and remote are handy extras to improve the experience. The ability to go cordless or use the mains electricity allows for flexible use, as does the way in which the fan folds down for convenient transport or storage. The battery itself provides adequate running time and recharges quickly.

I’m surprised and impressed by the Elegear fan, which far exceeded my expectations. While there are minor things I’d like to see changed, as I’ve noted earlier, I’m overall very pleased. There’s nothing that would put me off from buying another in future or from recommending it here, especially when there’s some peace of mind when buying and the additional 24m warranty should you encounter any issues.

It’s a contemporary, good quality and superior fan with some very useful bells & whistles that I can see myself getting a lot of use out of. In these past few weeks since using it for the first time it has been invaluable and I can’t imagine not having it now. It’s been absolutely brilliant.

I’d say it’s a worthwhile investment and priceless little luxury, whether you want to cool down in the heat, suffer with night sweats and hot flushes, or deal with chronic illness, migraines and sickness like me. This a kickass fan that I’d happily recommend.

A photo of the Elegear Fan I have reviewed. It's white with a large round base. It's sat on a small table in the living room with a leafy plant to the left of it. The fan is at the shortest height.

Another great review and cool product.. that should come in hand for you but it would be nice if they fix the small things you mentioned, that would make it a five star.Take care. I’m limping along, have Pt this afternoon.
Not much new. At least I can walk with my cane and can go up the stairs unattended even bought he would rather I not.
Send me an email and tell me what you are going to do about your twisted situation! This can’t keep going on, that’s too much pain and days out of your life

Thanks, Mel. I’m glad you like the review! I think if the small niggles were changed it would be super duper awesome, but as it is it’s still awesome enough to absolutely love it. I’ve got it on at the moment. Barely turned it off to be honest. Just one setting 1 is lovely and oddly helpful for my breathing given the lung damage, too. I hope the PT can be helpful. A little walking and resting sound good, and it’s great you’re able to do stars already. Be very careful. Fingers crossed recovery goes as smoothly as possible for you lovely xxxx

Good review. I discovered yesterday that my dry eyes were being made worse by having the fan on at night in the bedroom. The article suggested wearing a sleep mask.

Reply
InvisiblyMe June 15, 2021 - 5:32 pm

Aw that’s a shame. Do you use eye drops to off-set the dryness? I suppose you could try it either way, stopping the fan to see what happens or just add in eye drops (http://invisiblyme.com/2018/11/06/dry-eyes-5-soothers/) to relieve your peepers so you can continue using your fan. I’m not sure what a sleep mask would do to be honest, but it’s always worth a try. I hope something can help because dry eyes are so uncomfortable. xx

Sounds like a brilliant fan and if I had been reviewing this, then the niggles you found would probably be the same ones for me, but nothing to put me off from buying it.
I am also impressed that it came with a bag to store it. The bag looks good quality too.
The price of the fan is cheaper than what I psid for mine, to say this has more to it than mine.

Reply
InvisiblyMe June 15, 2021 - 10:59 pm

Yeah, it’s a shame about the niggles but there are no deal-breakers thankfully. It’s a surprisingly good fan, I’m really pleased with it and I’ve used it incessantly recently. It’s really nice just having a gentle breeze for more air, which just helps with my lung problems. Maybe you’d find the same with asthma. The bag is really neat too, isn’t it? I’m a sucker for the smaller details, like the bag and remote hidey hole. I’m surprised your fan cost more than this – is it a regular traditional type of fan? For what you get with the Elegear it’s definitely a good buy. I hadn’t realised how much until I did some shopping around. I must be a cheapskate! ???? xx

I’ve never come across a fan that collapses so you can use it as a desk top or a floor standing one, that’s such a good idea. Also that it’s portable, another very cool bonus. Fabulous review, Caz, I think this might be just what we all need this summer! x

This is the first I’d come across that adjusts in height, folds or runs on battery. It’s very cool, yet surprisingly powerful, too. More so than I’d ever expected so I’m absolutely thrilled with it. To be honest, I’ve just been using it non-stop on the lowest setting because the gentle breeze in the background is so refreshing. Glad you like the review lovely – thank you for reading & commenting! ???? xx

I suppose we don’t often need a fan for heat in the UK when our weather’s 99% naff, then we get the 1% where it’s roasting! It’s very refreshing just to get the air circulating a bit more, especially when it’s still and stuffy without any breeze from an open window. I’m really glad you like the review, thanks, Lauren! I hope the rest of the week treats you kindly xx

We have been thinking of a new fan for the bedroom and perhaps one in the lounge as it gets stuffy in there of an evening. This looks very ‘sleek’ as you say and it sounds brilliant. We had our old bedroom fan for about 15 years but this year it really does need to go. I will take a look at getting one of these as it makes sense to be able to get one and just move it up and downstairs as required. Very well reviewed here, great photos too.

InvisiblyMe June 15, 2021 - 11:35 pm

Sounds like your old fan has had a very good run if it’s been going 15 years. You’re right about the portability, it’s much more convenient and unless two people need the fan on at the same time in different parts of the house then it’s cheaper to get one and move it as required. Thanks, John. I’m glad you like the review – If you do end up getting one of these then I hope you love it and find it as useful as I do! ????

Another great review, Caz.

I really like this. It folds, it can work using battery power or mains and it’s fairly quiet. Sounds like the ideal fan. Hopefully, the company will take note of the suggestions you make. A battery life indicator would definitely be a useful addition.

Hope you’re doing ok.

Reply
InvisiblyMe June 16, 2021 - 11:11 pm

It really is a very nifty fan. It certainly impressed me because I imagined with the folding ability and battery it might be a bit weak or not very stable, but it was far more powerful than my traditional old one. And it’s lovely just one setting one for some quiet air circulation and a gentle breeze, really refreshing. If they did something with my suggestions in future then it really would be the perfect fan! Thanks for reading & commenting, Liz. I’m really glad you liked the review. Hope you two & Kip are all doing as well as possible ???? xx

No. Not looking forward to summer at all. It is over 100° F here and I have to carry a fan around with me everywhere. It is too hot. A fan that operates without a cord sounds nifty, but it doesn’t seem efficient if it can be charged while in use. And – ouch! I’ve never spend that much on a fan. But it does sound nice, hope it continues to work for you!

Wow, that is super hot – I can understand you not liking that too much! It’s a shame it doesn’t charge while in use, I agree. If they made changes to this in future taking into account my points then it would be the perfect fan. The discount makes the price more manageable and I think it’s a good investment for what you get, plus the warranty for peace of mind. I love it, I just wish we had more of the better weather in the UK (maybe not quite as hot as over there though!) x

What a wonderful review! Really well done with this Caz. I’ve not heard of the elegear brand before either but this sounds like a great fan. I do like the remote and all the speeds as well as the bag to fold it up in. We have a clunky old fan that sounds like your old one and we would love to get rid of it because it’s so loud and takes up a lot of room in the wardrobe during the autumn and winter. Perhaps it is finally time to upgrade to something better and more modern. Excellent post!

The run time per full charge is impressive. But like you, I think it would be better if it could run while charging. However, I love the idea of having a fan that can be used anywhere! Enjoy your breeze!

Whilst I’m not sure I would spend that much on a fan, I do like the fact that it’s compact and portable. I will definitely have a think about this one!
