Cheap and compact, the Dr. Prepare 13-inch Dual Oscillating Tower Fan uses dual fans to up its airflow, producing a strong blast of air when required.

Design and Features

  • Three timer settings

Compact and light, the Dr. Prepare 13-inch Dual Oscillating Tower Fan can be placed easily anywhere, from a desk to a coffee table. That makes it handy if you don’t have room for a full-size tower fan, such as the VonHaus 35″ Tower Fan. Although relatively cheap, I found that the fan was well-made and felt robust.

There’s no remote control on this model, with three simple buttons to select the power mode. There are also three timer options (two, four and eight hours), accessible via another button on the base. Although other fans offer a greater range of timer options, it’s still nice to have something.

For night use, there’s a night mode, which dims the LED lights on the base, so the Dr. Prepare 13-inch Dual Oscillating Tower Fan won’t keep you awake if you use it in a bedroom.

While lacking a remote control or display screen, at least the controls that are there are easy to find and use. There’s also a handy carry handle at the rear.

  • Strong airflow at close range
  • Quite quiet
  • Slightly waspy noise

The fan has a good air speed at close range, especially using its high setting. It can blow up to 2.8 m/s at 15cm, which is quite impressive for a small fan. At distance, air speed is still quite good, dropping to 1.7m/s at 1m. Air speed on the low setting is 1.1m/s at 1m, which is enough to keep you cool.

It is also relatively quiet at low speed, with a sound level of 40.8 dB at 1m. This is comparable to a whisper or a quiet library. However, the fan gets louder as the speed increases, reaching up to 48.5dB at high speed and 1m distance. This is comparable to a normal conversation or a busy office. The fan also has a waspy noise that might be annoying for some people, especially if they are sensitive to high-pitched sounds.
