The Range shoppers say £14.99 neck fan is 'a must' for staying cool this summer

The Range shoppers have been raving over a hands-free gadget that promises to be their "new best friend" when it comes to beating the heat this summer.

The retailer's Portable Neck Fan has been flying off the shelves amid the UK heatwave as an easy way to keep cool without having to waste energy fanning yourself by hand. The fan is equipped with three speeds and is chargeable with up to 12 hours of use on a full charge, making it ideal for staying chilled on the go whether you're off to work or the beach - and it's ultra-light too, weighing just 0.25kg.

The fan is available in four colours, with shoppers able to choose from white, pink, blue or green - however, at the time of writing the pink and blue options were out of stock on The Range's website due to overwhelming demand. You may be able to hunt them down at your nearest store, or alternatively you can sign up to get an email notification when they come back in online.

The Range showed off the fan on its Instagram page, with the post quickly racking up hundreds of comments from excited shoppers. "Omg, we need these", one person said as they tagged their friends in the comments section.

"I've got one of these on my list for my hols," someone else shared.

And a third shopper wrote: "I'm getting this for work!" The Range also has a selection of stand fans for staying cool at home in the scorching summer weather.

Its cheapest Pedestal Fan currently has 24% off with a price tag of £18.99, and comes with three speed settings and an oscillating feature ideal for the bedroom. Or for those working from home, there's the USB Mini Desk Fan for £4.99, available in either black, white or copper.

Fans are selling fast at the minute as the UK endures the June heatwave, with hundreds of options available from retailers both on the high street and online. For a multi-purpose option, the miniature fan with the highest ratings from shoppers on Amazon is the Handheld Portable Fan, which can also turn into a desk fan, for £18.25.
