We tested 2 top of the line cordless standing fans. The Xiaomi Mi Smart Wireless Standing Fan Pro and the Novita GreenFan F-2. Here are our reviews.
Rechargeable cordless standing fans are relatively new to the market, but they have caught the eyes of many. With our hot and humid weather in Singapore, most homes would have a least one or two standing fans lying around (or standing around?). A question was on our minds before testing was why do we even need cordless fans? After a month of testing the fans, we discovered how much more convenient going cordless was.
Without the need to be plugged in to a power socket meant that we could move the fan to any location in the house. For those with young children or dogs and cats in the house, this also meant the removal of a tripping hazard.
Xiaomi Mi Smart Wireless Standing Fan Pro
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Wireless Standing Fan Pro is a a fan reimagined by Xiaomi. Aside from the fact that it can be used cordless without a battery pack add-on, the Xiaomi Fan Pro replaced the traditional remote control with wifi connectivity for mobile control using the Xiaomi Home application.
While the Xiaomi Fan Pro lacks a vertical oscillation functionality, it more than makes up for it with the increased controls made possible with the wifi mobile application controls. Read our full review of the Xiaomi Mi Smart Wireless Standing Fan Pro.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Wireless Standing Fan Pro is available from online platforms such as Lazada and Shopee for $149 at the time of writing.
Novita GreenFan F-2
The Novita GreenFan F-2 is a feature packed fan, bundling in 3D oscillation and an additional Sleep Mod that gradually reduces the fan speed (and noise) as you fall asleep. It also comes with the ability to remove the centre pole and convert the fan into a desk fan.
A separate purchase of the battery pack is required in order to use the fan cordless, but this also means that you can potentially bring the fan outdoors for extended periods of time provided you purchase sufficient numbers of battery packs. Read our full review of the Novita GreenFan F-2.
The Novita GreenFan F-2 is available from online platforms such as Lazada and Shopee for $169 (without the optional battery pack) at the time of writing.
