As of March 16, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration officially announced that the dry season has begun in the Philippines. To make those long work-from-home air conditioning-less days a little more bearable, allow us to introduce you to 10 mini fans you can shop online right now.

While we’re sure you’ve got your own standing electric fans at home, these compact devices provide you with a handier source of cool air that you can carry from room to room, keep charged in case of a blackout, and store in your bag for emergencies.

These are the best mini electric fans you can shop online:

Low Noise USB Desk Fan Swing Type (P2,150) from MUJI

Most desk fans are made to just sit on the table and point towards one direction, but what sets MUJI’s apart is that this compact device actually oscillates. It sways horizontally up to an 80-degree range so more of your body can get a bit of breeze faster with no need for manual adjustment. The fan has two speed settings and even promises low-noise operation, so it won’t interrupt your video calls or distract you from your work.

Available online; see a list of MUJI stores.

Wino Mini Handheld Fan With Wireless Charging (P2,390) from Lexon

The aluminum fan can be left standing or held in one hand—depending on what you need in the moment—and can run for up to 4.5 hours on a single charge. The fan can even be used on Qi-compatible wireless charger pads for fuss-free recharging.

Available on the Rustan’s website.
