The accessory is compatible with most Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhone, according to Razer. The standard unit comes with a “universal clamp.” However, the company also created a special magnetic version that can attach to an iPhone 12 or 13 via Apple’s MagSafe connector. 

The product will definitely make your smartphone stand out. The fan is sizable and includes RGB lighting across 12 customizable lights, which can be configured via a Bluetooth connection.

The RGB fan joins a growing line of unconventional products from Razer. In September, the company introduced tiny finger sleeves smartphone gamers can wear to avoid sweaty hands. Then in October, the company launched the Zephyr, an RGB-powered air purifier mask, which surprisingly continues to sell out due to high demand.
