USB Solder Fume Exactor

This uses a 5VDC fan and it’s wired up to a USB connector so we can plug it into a USB battery. The 3D printed enclosure snap fits and allows for easy carbon filter replacements.

Small and Cute!

The fan is only 50x50mm so it doesn’t take much space on your work surface. Just plug it into any 5V USB rechargeable battery. Keep the air clean, fume-free and save space on your work bench!

Easy-to-Mount!

Features a GoPro style hinge so you can adjust the angle of the fan. It’s compatible with GoPro style adapters so it can be set up on a tripod or even a magic arm.
