This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in March of 2018. Maybe your car’s air conditioning isn't working properly, or perhaps you simply want to increase the circulation in your vehicle without opening the windows and letting in the summer heat. Either way, one of these fans should do the trick. You can mount some of these models directly to your dashboard, while others feature a clamp on the base for attaching to all sorts of places. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best fan for cars on Amazon.

Special Honors

Zertg CoolBlow A comfortable child is a quiet child — at least that’s what you’re hoping will be the case when you install this dual-headed fan to the back of your car’s headrest. The heads rotate 360 degrees on its rugged mounting bracket, and it includes a handy speed controller for easy adjustments. zertgo.com

Editor's Notes

September 17, 2019:

Several of the items on this list had to be removed due to availability issues, and we eliminated a couple more upon discovering some serious quality and safety concerns (including one item that was a potential fire hazard).

As for the newly added options on the list, three are of the dual-headed variety, which is a nice attribute for families with children. In most cases, these heads operate separately from one another, so you can rotate each to direct airflow toward the front seat as well as the back.

The bladeless construction of the Maxtuf Circulator differentiates it from the rest of the items, and it’s another nice option for use around kids, since there’s no threat of a fast-moving blade injuring small, active hands. Users find the Tvird Power to be a solid value for its all-around performance, as it delivers a legitimate cooling effect in a quiet, efficient manner. It serves as a nice replacement for air conditioning, and it's powerful enough for use in a truck or RV.
