About

We've all been there - you're stuck on the tube it's stifling hot, your fellow commuters are glowing with sweat and the only hint of a breeze is the breath from the guy squashed up behind you. A pretty yucky situation. 

But what if there was a cute little gizmo that you could pull out of your bag, attach to your phone and use to cool yourself down with. Well actually there is and we've called it the SmartFan :o)

Introducing SmartFan

SmartFan - Front, side and back
SmartFan - Front, side and back

SmartFan is the result of months and months of testing, designing, head-scratching and nail-biting. It is a beautifully designed little gizmo that attaches to your phone and gives you an instant breeze.

Our patented design allows it to fit to most modern smartphones, including Samsung and iPhone.

The TPE material is soft and durable and won't harm you if you find your fingers wandering towards the spinning blades. The fan meets all CE and ROHS safety standards. A cool breeze and peace of mind - there's no better combination.

The fan runs on just 5v and will sit happily in your phone for hours without draining your battery.

What makes SmartFan unique?

There are many elements of SmartFan that make our product unique:

  • Patented design allows SmartFan to connect with most modern smartphones 
  • CE & ROHS certified TPE material - soft and durable & won't injure you when touched 
  • TPE material is made of recycled, organic material and is biodegradable.
  • Low 5v usage - won't drain your battery
  • Up to 100 hours running time
  • Size - approx 80mm x 41mm
  • Weight - 28g
  • Speed - fan rotates at up to 1600 rpm.

Applications

The potential scenarios in which the SmartFan can be used are virtually limitless - essentially it's anywhere, including:

  • On the beach
  • On your commute
  • At a festival
  • In a club
  • Sporting events
  • Parties
  • Any airless space - airports, shopping centres etc...
Simple and fun to use.

How it works

It really could not be easier to plug SmartFan into your phone. You simply choose the connector (A or B) that is right for you and plug it into your phone's power socket (C). Simple :o)

SelfieLight

If you pledge just £15 or more, we will throw in one of our awesome little SelfieLights. This tiny light packs a powerful punch - just plug it into your smartphone and take your selfie.

Perfect for dark or dimly lit places - ideal for a night out!

SmartStand

If you pledge just £10 or more, we'll throw in one of our little SmartStands. Essentially, it's a little rubber strip that lays flat on the back of your phone and when you want to stand your phone up to watch a video or to FaceTime, the two ends pop out to create a handy little stand.

All shipping will be sent by standard delivery. We will supply proof of postage but can't guarantee loss/damage.

Risks and challenges

There is a risk that people may confuse SmartFan with inferior products that are on the market. Whilst these products may have similar functionality, none of them can boast the features of SmartFan. Furthermore - none of those cheap products carry the necessary safety certificates and none has our patented multi-adaptor.

The biggest risk to this project is that we raise more money than our initial target and we have many more pledge gifts to fulfil. However, we don't actually believe that this will be a problem as we have a fantastic relationship with the factory that is manufacturing our fans, stand and selfie lights.
