Sheryl Crow just wants to have fun until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard, and I don’t blame her one bit! Once the sun comes up in areas like Santa Monica, it’s out in full force. When the heat is relentless and the uncomfortably-hot air makes you squirm around to avoid sticking to your leather chair, it may seem like no amount of air conditioning can be of any help.
If you live somewhere like Santa Monica that always has “great” weather, it’s very likely there’s no air conditioning unit in your apartment at all. Some people can handle the heat better than others, and if you’d rank yourself at the bottom of that spectrum then you probably don’t appreciate your level of comfort being predetermined by a landlord who likes the summer sun a little bit too much. It’s not a fun way to live, but seeing your wallet shrink after you spend hundreds on a portable air conditioner isn’t fun either. Sheryl’s right – sometimes the fun really does end when the sun comes up.
Enter Comfort Zone. Their 4-inch dual-powered desk fan can plug right into a USB port in your desktop or laptop computer and keep you cool as you work. If you don’t feel like being tethered to your device, plug it into the USB mobile battery power bank or into the wall so it can keep you comfortable as you relax. The tiny portable fan blows more than enough wind to generate a breeze that you can feel. While it’s not completely silent, it’s also not loud enough to distract you from whatever you’re doing unless you’re actively listening for it just to say I’m wrong – and if you’re wearing headphones, the sound is virtually non-existent and all you get is the cool air you signed up for when you bought it.
This fan is a lifesaver when it feels like there’s no escape from the heat. Comfort is priceless, but this Comfort Zone fan is under $10. Their name is my destiny – as I write this with the fan blowing cold air straight at me, I’ve been in a comfort zone while the space around me feels like it’s under a heat lamp. It’s also worth noting that it has an adjustable 360-degree tilt, which may come in handy if you want to share the wealth of a fine breeze with someone.
