Netta offers a sleek and modern take on the traditional tower fan with this model, with a front-facing display tracking temperature, fan speed and fan mode. It also has 65-degree oscillation and a built-in timer.
Also, unlike most tower fans running by way of a mains power cable, this model is free standing and battery-powered.
