I bought this fan to use at our camp. We have no electricity there, so I needed a fan that is rechargeable. It has a lot of power for a small fan and 3 speed settings. The charge last for multiple hours, and using it at the slower speeds will help the battery to last longer. It comes with a removable base to stand it up. The base has an adhesive sicker on the bottom if you want to permanently mount it somewhere. I am more comfortable sleeping at camp with this fan blowing on me. This would make a nice gift for anyone who likes to camp.
