When plugged into any computer, this gadget simply displays the actual time of your region in its blades while simultaneously keeping you cool.

It features an adjustable and flexible neck, allowing you to position the cool breeze anywhere you wish on your workstation.

Setup couldn’t be easier for this plug-and-go device. Simply insert the USB-drive end into the appropriate port on your laptop, notebook or even your TV and press the on/off switch to both turn the fan on and activate the clock display.

To customize the time, press and hold the on/off button until the minute hands begin blinking. To set the hour hand, continue to hold the button. The clock will spin clockwise fast. Simply release the button just before the correct hour appears. After the hour is set, the minute hand will flash. Click the on/off button again to move the minute hand forward to the correct time.

Leave the device for six seconds and the time will be locked in.

The manufacturer recommends that users keep their hair, face and eyes away from the rotating fan blades when the device is in use. Also, it should be turned off when it is not in use and should be shut off completely after five hours to prolong its service life.

Shoppers seem to love this little gem, with one five-star reviewer who gifted it to a friend highlighting that it is sturdy and “really cools.”

“I gave this to a colleague for his birthday, and it was an instant hit. He uses it almost every day since his office is like a furnace, and it’s still going strong after four months,” she wrote. “When turned on, it looks just like the picture…bright red and green dial. Everyone who comes into his office remarks on it, and several have asked me where to find it.”

A few shoppers have even expressed shock in the tiny device’s air-blowing power, with one particular four-star reviewer writing, “Air flow is better than I thought.”

One minor gripe a couple of reviewers had with the gadget is how bright the outer ring is. One reviewer, however, shared a quick-fix for this criticism: “I have used a piece of electrical tape to cover the last LED on the fan blade to dim it. That fixed the issue.”
