Hey readers! 👋 Bryn here, Collin’s sidekick and sister!
If you’re looking for a better night’s sleep and are tired of a bulky box fan taking up space in your home or office like I was, I’ve got the perfect solution for you that will have you ditching the box fan altogether (well, possibly!).
I’m obsessed with my white noise sound machine by LectroFan… and I’m not the only one!
Say hello to my favorite LectroFan – I seriously can’t sleep without it!
This little machine is small but sturdy and will be your own little personal white noise and fan sound machine. It comes with tons of fan sounds – ten to be exact! So if you have to sleep with a fan, this thing will truly suit anyone’s needs.
I love that you can choose between a box fan, exhaust fan, oscillating fan, vent fan, etc. and there are even 10 variations of pure white noise sounds like champagne, coral, amber, cinnamon, and more.
Talk about heaven! 🙌
Plus, all sounds can be personalized with the volume control button – choose a noise level from a whisper to many times louder than mechanical fan based conditioners.
But one of the best features about the LectroFan is that it is compact, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space as a bulky box fan does. I just sit mine right on top of my nightstand and it’s not obtrusive to my room or decor at all. 🙌🏻
I have a confession to make though…
My box fan isn’t entirely gone – I tried to say goodbye to it for good but I just am not ready to let go of it completely. While I’m obsessed with my white noise machine, I really need a ton of background noise to sleep soundly. So I pulled my box fan back out and still use it from time to time with my sound machine as well. 😂 I swear if you were to hear the dull but loud noise in my room at night, you’d wonder how anyone could sleep in that!
On another note, even my Hip sidekick, Emily, is totally obsessed with her LectroFan!
“I never imagined a small gadget could do so much good for my sleep! Not only does it help me get to sleep, but I STAY asleep all through the night. This is huge since my boyfriend and I are on different sleep schedules — no more mid-sleep disturbances when he would come to bed.
I used to have a looping sound machine before but I would hear the ticks in the sound loop and it became impossible to fall asleep. The white noise Lectrofan has been a total game changer!”
If you’re a traveler like me, it gets even better…
Not long ago I discovered an even smaller, travel-sized LectroFan (now available in the new, micro 2 edition) which is even more of a game-changer if you frequently travel!
Funny little fact…one of my least favorite things about traveling is that I don’t have all the white noise that I’m used to sleeping with at home, so before I discovered the full-sized LectroFan, I was literally packing a mini version of a box fan in my suitcase (despite the fact that it took up at least half of my suitcase). 🤣
And while I could definitely have traveled more easily once I discovered the full-sized LectroFan, this micro sound machine is about half the size of the regular LectroFan but offers most of the same features. It instantly became my favorite, must-have travel companion forever!
It also doubles as a Bluetooth speaker if you want to play some of your favorite tunes or audiobooks rather than using the white noise sounds.
Even better, despite its tiny size, the LectroFan micro puts out quite the volume, yet fits in the palm of my hand! Incredible!

If Emily and I haven’t convinced you to ditch the box fan yet, here are a couple of the 4,000+ 5-star reviews on Amazon:
“A friend that travels a lot recommended this LectroFan so I decided to give it a try for a long trip we had planned. It is awesome! I like the variety of noises, the volume control, & got a great night of sleep from night one of using it. It’s small (perfect for travel) yet sturdy and not flimsy at all. This will be used every night of my trip and will go on my nightstand when I get home!” – Lynn ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“As someone who has used white noise to sleep for over 35 years, I was shocked at how good the sound is on this little guy! I’ve always struggled with other solutions like phone apps, they’re too high-pitched. However, the LectroFan is perfect!” – Jan ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tons of my Hip sidekicks love these affordable sheets from Amazon!
