Keep Your Cool With the Klein Hard and Safety Helmet Fan
As jobsite fans go, they’re great supplementary products to your cordless tools and make at least some of your jobs more tolerable in the heat. The Klein Hart Hat and Safety Helmet Fan takes things a bit more personally, though.
Klein Hard Hat and Safety Helment Fan | The Big Deal
What’s super-cool about this jobsite fan is that it attaches to your hard hat or safety helmet and actively pulls air in to cool your head.
There are actually two centrifugal fans built into the unit. They promise quiet operation and effective airflow with high and low speed selections.
The power source is interesting. Rather than going with alkaline batteries or an internal lithium-ion pack, it uses an external modular battery. The 3200 mAh pack is capable of running the fan for up to 6.5 hours at low speed or 3.5 hours at high speed. It can also charge other devices with a pair of USB-C ports.
The fan connects directly onto Klein hard hats and safety helmets in the accessory slot. The fan housing has an additional slot on it, so you don’t have to trade off a safety light or headlamp to get the airflow you want.
Two different ducts (long and short) come in the package to help you dial in as many as 16 different configurations that can cover your head, neck, or face.
Despite a somewhat bulky look, Klein tells us it’s reasonably lightweight at just 6.9 ounces and balances well.
Klein Hard Hat and Safety Helmet Fan Price
In the package, you get the fan, battery, charging cord, short ducts, and long ducts all for $69.99. If you would like a spare battery, they run $34.99 each.
