This gadget name on Amazon is a mouthful and it is called the Mini USB Powered Fan Flexible Gooseneck LED Cooling Flashing USB Temperature Fan for PC Laptop Notebook Desktops where basically the brand tried to stuff every keyword they could that could describe this product into the product title. What you get however is a Gooseneck LED USB Powered Clock fan that is a unique little gadget and gimmicky though providers a fair amount of airflow.

I see this mostly being ideal if you have a USB hub on your desk or USB ports on the side of your monitor where you can have this LED Clock Fan plugged into, if your only USB ports are under your desk with your PC case this won’t really do you much good.
This USB Clock Fan can be powered by any PC USB port or a USB Hub or USB charger with ease. It can be powered by USB 2 or USB 3 ports as it does not draw much power.
I tested it plugged into a laptop, a USB 7 port hub and a direct USB PC port and the clock worked fine. When you first plug in the clock you need to set the time by holding the power button down until it starts blinking, then you can adjust the time hour forward by holding it, and then minute forward by tapping. It will automatically stop and set time when you don’t touch a button for 6 seconds. There is only one button on this USB Clock LED Fan and that is the power on/power off button.
It is quite unique to see the LED lights spin and perfectly represent a clock face, even with ticking second hands and the minute and hour hands moving. The fact that it is able to perform the movements while spinning is really cool to look at. The fan blades themselves are very pliable and soft, so you do not have to worry about clipping/scratching or cutting your hands or fingers you can stop the blades anytime without injury and I did to show you the LED light on the blade. When the blade is stopped only the green LED light is lit, the red ones do not light up unless the fan blade is spinning.
If you unplug the clock it has an internal battery that stores the last time it was set to, I don’t know how long that lasts but you can easily switch USB ports without having to reset the time again. Overall if you need a small desk fan, one that also acts as a clock and is powered by USB you may get a kick out of this little gadget. Though if you are doing microphone recordings, podcasting or gamecasting the fan does make a bit of whirring and this background fan noise will be picked up by your mic.
