Binatone RSF-1602R 16″ multi-function rechargeable standing fan with remote control is the first rechargeable cooling equipment I bought online.
I was a bit skeptical with the product listing as there weren’t any reviews on the page prior to my placing an order for one. My confidence was deep-rooted on the fact that it was sold and fulfilled by Konga and not their merchants.
So, I went ahead and gave it a trial, the experiences so far (after more than 2 months active usage) has been nothing short of awesomeness.
The Binatone RSF-1602R 16″ multi-function rechargeable standing fan with remote control is a basic home appliance and so does have the basic features of regular home electronics.
Some of the basic features and specification of the RSF-1602R 16″ multi-function rechargeable fan includes –
- 2-speed control
- 16″ max height
- Remote control operation (on/off, high/low, timer, LED control)
- Easy oscillation and height adjustment
- Built-in LED night-light
- AD/DC function (auto-switches)
- 0.5 hour timer
- Over-charge and over-discharge protection
- Retailed with 2 piece 6v 4.5Ah rechargeable battery
- Charging and operating indicator
- 12-16 hours charge time
- Battery duration of more than 5 hours
- 120 hours stand by mode (DC)
As it is with every other electronics and electrical appliances we have owned in the past, we did play around this one, taking a clue from the user manual and would be sharing our experiences so far in this review.
The 16 inches Binatone rechargeable standing fan (RSF-1602R) we are using for this review is fairly priced. To wit, it was a steal for the price we got it.
It is sold for NGN15,300 (about $85.00) on konga.com and comes with a remote control and a user manual. You can get this model from any Binatone showroom nationwide and/or from the popular online shopping websites.
The build quality is top-notched but could have done better with sturdy plastics instead of the cheap looking ones that came with this retail copy.
Another downside we noticed with regards to the build quality is the disturbing sound it makes while oscillating. Apart from this few downside, the RSF-1602R model of Binatone rechargeable standing fan is built to last even in rugged environments like ours.
7 hours on battery (DC) was quite amazing for a rechargeable fan of this price range. It’s been over two months of steady use already and there isn’t a decline in the battery life yet. This is two hours more than the officially listed battery duration time on the product’s page.
We turned the oscillation notch off to a standstill and set the 2-speed control unit to low on our first night (after charging it for over 15hrs) to meet the above 7hrs battery duration time.
In all, the battery life is good as it will help keep your room cool and comfortable from the moment you turn off your generator until the morning.
The built-in LED night-light is awesome and works even when the battery can no longer power the fan. It can go for as long as four days without issues.
For students, this could add more juice to the lifespan of your reading lamps, saving you the stress of running now and then, looking for a place to charge your lamps.
Overall Performance and Verdict
The RSF-1602R model of Binatone rechargeable standing fan isn’t as big as it seems on the picture but produces very cool breeze with its elegant swivel.
It came with 4-steps easy height adjustment levels and the oscillates in four (4) angles, to wit; up, down, left and right.
It has been a better companion during the hot hours of the day, dry seasons and when our epileptic power holding company decides to shut its door.
This is a great cooling appliance for home, store and lecture venues. Bigger models with up to 18 inches height and elegant features should be used for outdoor events and religious venues.
In all, we can confidently recommend this product to any one that’s looking for a reliable and high quality rechargeable fan to use in home, hostels and living rooms.
- Excellent features and value for money
- Build quality is okay
- Battery duration is great
- Could have done better with sturdy plastics
- The disturbing sound (noise) while oscillating is quite discouraging
- Larger blades would have been a big plus
- Addiction of a USB port (power bank) would have been a kill
