The 4 Best Fans for Baby Strollers

January 2, 2023

Do you need a fan for the baby stroller?

A portable, clip on fan can prove a lifesaver in summer and the warmer months to keep your baby cool when out and about with a baby stroller.

Stroller and bassinet canopies and built in umbrellas protect your baby from the UV beams and the direct sunlight, but there’s no cool air circulation to keep her refreshed and cooled.

That’s where a stroller fan comes in handy. Read on to discover the 4 best baby stroller fans of 2023.

Top 4 baby stroller fans of 2023

  1. YXwin 2 in 1 USB fan

3) SkyGenius Battery Operated Clip on fan


  • USB charging
  • Small and portable
  • 360 degrees vertical and horizontal rotation

  • Battery runtime not the best (~ 4.5 hours)
  • 1 speed setting when USB powered

The SkyGenius battery operated, clip fan is extremely lightweight and portable. It can be charged via USB (type A) and can run for approximately 4.5 hours on a full charge.

Even though this isn’t the longest runtime in our comparison roundup it’s plenty antiquate if you’re simply planning to go out for a walk or a run with your baby but it means that you’ll need to recharge it every day.

Thankfully it’s USB rechargeable so you can hook it up to your laptop or powerbank and get some extra runtime out of it.

We specially liked the fact that it has a very strong clip and it can rotate 360 degrees vertically and horizontally.
