Cool Down With Thanko’s USB-Powered Clip-on Fan Coolers

by Hazel Chua

When I first saw these USB fans by Thanko, I almost wished that I were a man who regularly wore suits and ties to work so that I would have something to clip them on. Almost.


Thanko is an accessory designer based in Japan, and can I say that I wait with bated breath with each new release the company makes because they’re so darned quirky and out-of-this-world?

Their latest offering is this clip-on fan or cooler that can be easily attached to your tie so you don’t have to exert energy fanning yourself with a hand fan on hot days. Each of these fans come with a battery pack for power on-the-go and can be charged up via your USB port. There’s also another version that’s been around for a while which actually is built into a necktie, but you’re stuck with just a single ugly tie design if you go with that one.

The USB clip-on fan is available from Thanko for about $32 (USD). Sadly, it’s still available in Japan, so you might want to start phoning your Japan-based friends or colleagues so they can get their hands on one for you.
