Best fans for summer tour sleeping?
I'm about to head down the US east coast and know it will be hot (100 F in DC yesterday).
I intend to take a portable fan. I've seen this:
and even this.

It probably works OK as a fan though. I was in a discount department store just a few days ago and saw one which was identical the the first one you linked to... Don't remember which store it was.
I think I'm going to go for more batteries (hopefully implies longer running times):
On a previous trip I've had reasonable luck w/ this, though I'm hoping for better. I also tried this, but it broke quickly.
Point taken re evaporative cooling.
