Klein Tools Rechargeable Personal Jobsite Fan PJSFM1 News & Mini Review

Klein Tools has announced a new portable cordless rechargeable personal jobsite fan model number PJSFM1. In this article we’ll go over the very short official Klein press release and Klein Tools was also kind enough to send over (at no cost) one of the new personal fans for review and my good friend Jim R. was able to review and test the fan and give us his thoughts on it. All images were taken by Jim. Neither Tool Craze, nor Jim were paid by Klein Tools for the review and we are not obligated to give a positive review. Jump to the bottom for the review.

Jim’s Review:

The fan blades are made of a thick durable plastic. The cage is also made of a thick durable plastic made to last and the blades are concealed from any finger mishaps. Use of the fan by pressing the power button is an easy use function, and by pressing it once turns the fan on and then pressing it again a second time turns fan to low and then a third time turns fan. A simple and easy function.

The power button is situated behind the motor and is nicely flush with the body of the fan so as not to break off if bumped against something. The battery indicator lights are easily visible, and the four status lights are easily readable. The charging port is nicely put behind the motor out of the way of any potential contact with water and has a rubber port flap/cover to keep debris from clogging the port hole.

The fan cage arms are attached securely with just enough tension to allow fan to rotate in between arms. The clamp feature is also easy to use, simply by pressing on the clamp handle and then releasing as you mount it where necessary. The tension easily holds the fan onto any surface securely. Fingers fit nicely in the handle slot and is positioned at just the right place, on top of the fan cage.

The fan comes with a ready to use nail hole located on the clamp handle. Also located at the bottom of the clamp assembly, are 2 strong magnets inset to the clamp. Makes mounting or positioning of the fan quick and easy.

Fan was tested on a fully charged battery and ran for approximately for 4 hours, at high speed. (Editors notes: Turned fan on and walked away and came back 4 hours later and it was off. Although not sure of exactly how long it ran before it ran out of juice.) It was not tested to run on low speed.

Performance for the high setting on the fan was adequate. But the low setting was some what too low. It barely reached 3 feet. All in all, the performance is top notch, along with the ability to rotate 360 degrees, both the fan and the on the arm supports.

This jobsite fan has 11 features:

  • Fan blades
  • Battery status indicator
  • Fan cage
  • Charging port flap
  • Fan cage arms clamps
  • Nail hole
  • Clamp
  • Magnets
  • Handle
  • Power button
  • USB-C cable connection
