This top-rated portable fan is winning over Amazon shoppers with its lightweight and versatile design, which conveniently sits around your neck for hands-free relief from the heat.

Since this bladeless design is both light and totally portable, it’s an excellent choice for vacations, outdoor sports, yard work or just everyday use in hot weather.

This fan is equipped with a powerful and rechargeable battery, offering up to 16 hours of use. It features 78 ventilation holes that deliver air to the face and neck for 360-degree cooling, with a dust- and sweat-proof design.

It’s available in four colours (grey, pink, blue and green) and has three speeds.

I was skeptical about the JISULIFE Portable Neck Fan, initially thinking it was silly-looking. However, when I arrived at the airport in Orlando, I had to quickly eat my words — just about as soon as we landed, I was whipping the fan out of my bag and onto my neck.

I was impressed by the fan's ability to blow air when in use, helping to provide some relief from the heat and humidity. The third and highest settings proved to be the most useful for me, earning this fan a spot on my list of everyday essentials when hitting the theme parks.

As temperatures soared past 35°C daily (not factoring in humidity), I found myself reaching for the neck fan on several occasions.

However, since I was using it at the highest setting, I did notice that the battery life didn't hold up as long as I'd hoped.

If you do plan to use this fan for yourself, I recommend learning from my mistakes and keeping a power bank and charging cable on hand to avoid the battery draining halfway through the day.

Shoppers who sweat a lot have even called this gadget "a godsend" for use during work.

One reviewer raved that "this neck fan has been awesome" during menopause, while another called it "the best thing since sliced bread."

Many reviewers have noted that this fan's airflow at the back of the neck is not as strong as they'd hoped, but since it comes with a "lightweight" and "inconspicuous" design, shoppers say that it's worth the tradeoff.

Even at its current sale price of $50 (in the green), this portable fan may not be the most affordable version on the market, but its hands-free design and effective cooling make it a top pick ahead of hot spring and summer days.

With a quiet motor and bladeless design, shoppers say it cools you down and is helpful in various situations.

After using it myself, I'm glad I have the JISULIFE Portable Neck Fan to stay cool on hot days. However, I'll always be sure to have a charger on hand for backup, too.
