RYOBI Misting Fans Your Summer A/C Hack

RYOBI Misting Fans

Do you love summer but want to take a break from the unrelenting heat sometimes? In 2014 we shared how Arctic Cove 18V Bucket Top Misting Fans offer an an affordable and portable way to cool off during your summer activities, such as sports games, yard work, or outdoor parties. The Arctic Cove fans have since been discontinued, but RYOBI Misting Fans have filled the void with multiple ways for you to cool off with a refreshing mist this summer.

The most exciting part about RYOBI Misting Fans is that RYOBI offers consumers two different models to choose from. Let’s take a look at what RYOBI offers.

But first…

“Did RYOBI Buy Arctic Cove Misting Fans?”

RYOBI didn’t have to. Arctic Cove and RYOBI are both owned by Techtronic Industries (TTI). This is why Arctic Cove misting fans were compatible with RYOBI 4.0Ah batteries. TTI appeared to just white label the fans with another one of the company’s brands.

Our 2014 article actually received a lot of positive feedback about the Arctic Cove fans. However, RYOBI is the number one homeowner/DIY’er power tool and outdoor power equipment (OPE) brand. TTI likely realized the fans would sell better under the RYOBI brand.

According to Reddit, the bucket top misting fan actually went between the two brands with RYOBI supposedly selling it initially. So, it’s not shocking the product ended back with RYOBI, which has expanded on misting fan options for consumers.

RYOBI Misting Fans

As we said, RYOBI has at least two different misting fan options, along with multiple packages for consumers to select from. Let’s take a closer look at the two main options.

RYOBI ONE+ 18V Bucket Top Misting Fan

  • Product Name: RYOBI ONE+ 7-1/2 in. Bucket Top Misting Fan Kit

  • TIA Review: This kit is identical to the Arctic Cove misting fan. It even comes with the same amp 1.5 Ah battery but with a true RYOBI label. This should also be compatible with strong RYOBI batteries for increased runtime.
