The 64 Patterns LED Mini-Fan (hereinafter probably just called a fan) is a small, handheld battery-operated electric fan. It has two soft plastic blades and a neck lanyard, but most importantly (for this website sakes anyway), there are five tiny LEDs on one of the fan blades that create some rather pretty patterns when the fan is used.

There is a circuit of some kind hidden in the fan's head that controls each of the five LEDs individually.


 SIZE



To use the fan, feed it first (see directly below). As the fan is facing you, press & release the button on the right-hand side of the fan's body just below the head to turn it on. Press and release the button the same way again to turn it off.



On the back of the fan, you'll find a battery door. Use a fingernail to pull down on the latch, swing the door open, lift it off and remove it, throw it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl, yank that silvery handle on the front of the cistern down, and flush it away...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the three used AAA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AAA cells in the compartment, orienting each cell so its flat-end (-) negative faces the spring for it in each chamber.

Place the battery door back on so the little plastic tit on it fits into the slot for it in the fan's body. Swing it up, and press it in until it clicks.
Aren't you glad you didn't flush away that battery door now?

Measures 222mA on my DMM's 4A scale.



This product is meant to be used as a handheld fan in a dry area, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed and abused, so I won't try to flush it down a toliet, bash it against the corner of a concrete stair or a steel rod, let my housemate's kitty cat's ghost go to the bathroom on it, run over it with a 400lb Rascal, or perform other indecencies on the fan that a regular flashlight might have to go through.

This fan is not water-resistant, waterproof, or submersible. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, puddles of African lion pee, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, fishtanks, dog water dishes, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found. You can use it in a very light sprinkle, but any heavier than that and you'll want to stash it away.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, disassemble it as you would for a battery change, dump out the water if necessary, and set the parts in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you reassemble and use it again.

If it fell into seawater or if somebody or something got "pyst off" at it and subsequently "pist" on it, douche all the parts out with fresh water before setting them out to dry. You don't want your fan to smell like seaweed or uranation when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater or piddle) can't be very good for the motor, the LED driver circuitry, or the battery contacts.

The LEDs in the fan blade produce beautiful patterns of light that must really be seen to be appreciated. The movie I provide farther down this web page really doesn't do the fan justice, but it's better than nothing at all.

The fan blades are made of soft plastic, so you will not cut your finger on them if you poke at the blades when the fan is operating.
