Many swank beach resorts place misting fans alongside the chaises, so sun-bathing guests feel a little cooler while soaking up the ultraviolet radiation. Well, this isn't that, but the O2COOL hand-held Deluxe Misting Fan does take the heat off.

The 10.5-inch-high by 4-inch-wide bottle —  in a variety of colors — holds about a pint of water, and the opening is wide enough to slip in ice cubes.

The battery-operated fan apparatus screws onto the top of a sturdy brightly colored ergonomically shaped plastic bottle. You get a spritz of mist by squeezing the pump trigger (just like with most spray bottles). The device may not be posh, but it's good to go wherever you and your trigger finger roam.

The 10.5-inch-high by 4-inch-wide bottle holds about a pint of water, and the opening is wide enough to slip in ice cubes. The price is so good that you can buy enough to keep the whole gang chill as you fan across, say, Disney World. (The fan blades, recessed within a circular plastic casing, are flexible rubber, so they're safe for the kids).

The O2COOL comes in 8 bright colors (I'm partial to purple). The fan operates on 2 replaceable AA batteries (not included unless you pay extra, which isn't worth the cost, nor the risk of stale batteries). Keep plenty of extra AA's on hand for long hot days.

    O2COOL Deluxe Misting Fan costs about $10 — more for some colors — at amazon.com and other websites.
