Fans - chargeable, USB, gym friendly

Hi all,

Anyone take their own fan to the gym; treadmill/watt bike?

Most of the technogym treadmills have USB ports which I’m assuming offer a charge, but some kind of clip or clamp needed for the watt bikes and woodways.

are USB powered fans going to offer enough “oomph” though? when you’re sweating like a glassblower’s arse you need hurricane level wind

Check the gym floor for additional plug sockets

Cordless leaf blower, light and easy enough to run to the gym with, you line it up to your head, it’s brilliant.


I should t read this stuff when I’m in the gym :joy::joy::joy:

Oh the lulz. Yeah but anything is better than nothing.

People think I’m dying.

In fairness, hard intervals or bike, when I see myself in the mirror it scares me too.

I see a selfie clip in my near future…:star_struck:

USB Ports are for keeping your phone charged up - not for fans ffs

You do make me laugh sometimes…chill out bro! :cowboy_hat_face:

I’m sure a 2W fan will make all the difference…

Is that all you can get from a USB port? I’ve never looked into it

I was going to get something more substantial but the gym won’t let me put anything on the floor that’s a trip hazard:

Sorry… 2A maybe 3 … at 5v means 10W-15W

0.5A on a USB 2.0 unless its wired for high power - which I dounbt a gym machine will have.

I think you were right the first time - 2 or 3W
