Exposed to the sun, the solar panel immediately starts harvesting sunlight through a miniature photovoltaic panel and turns it into energy which powers the fan. The brighter the sun, the more powerful the fan . . . just when you need it most! It’s cool to be cool with the Solar Powered Hat Fan. Clip it to the brim of your hat (stiffer brims and baseball caps are recommended) and get outside to hike, garden, mow — or just relax in cool, eco-hip comfort. You’ll get a nice breeze across your face without using your hands, batteries, or any electricity.

There’s nothing like a cooling breeze to keep the hot weather at bay, but sometimes that breeze is nowhere to be found. Enter the Gaiam solar-powered hat fan, which helps keep you cool when temperatures climb. When exposed to the sun, the mini photovoltaic solar panel harvests enough energy to directly power the fan, with no batteries or power outlet required. And the brighter the sun, the more powerful the fan. All you have to do is clamp the fan to your favorite hat–stiffer brims and baseball caps are recommended–and then bask in the sun. The fan is ideal for everything from hiking to gardening to relaxing in cool, eco-hip comfort. Boasting an adjustable mount, the fan measures 2.12 by 2.25 by 2.75 inches (W x H x D). Ten percent of all proceeds from the sale of the solar hat fan is dedicated to sending inner-city kids to Earth Day festivities at the nonprofit Solar Living Institute.
