NITECORE CineWind CW10 Released – Portable Fan for Content Creators

NITECORE released their CineWind CW10 Portable fan. With a stepless control knob to adjust the intensity level of the fan and dual power supply options, this could be a convenient item to add to a small kit. At CP+ in Japan, we had a chance to speak with Summer of NITECORE and learn about their new product, so let’s find out more about this simple, fun little fan!

NITECORE is a Chinese-based company known for their lighting and battery solutions since 2007 and is part of SYSMAX Innovations Co., Ltd. They have won quite a few awards and notably, they often contribute to their communities by sponsoring events and generously donating their products – something we can appreciate.

The CW10: A compact fan for smaller groups

The CineWind CW10 is the successor to the larger CW30 fan, released only last August, and is aimed at smaller groups of 1 or 2 people. Designed primarily for video and content creators, the fan lets you control your wind speed as desired. Small enough to fit in a backpack, it might also be handy for travel and wedding videographers/photographers, as well as portrait studios.

This portable, miniature fan is very small and lightweight at only 120gms/ 4.23oz and can be powered with any NP-F battery or USB-C via a power bank. Summer noted that the fan was intentionally designed without a built-in rechargeable battery to avoid the waiting time that would incur when the power runs out. The fan has a 32W brushless motor with a maximum speed of 50km/h (31.1mph) and a wind volume of 180 m³/h. An integrated LED display provides real-time information on battery life, charging progress, and wind speed percentage.

One button control

The large on/off button at the top is also a stepless control knob for adjusting the fan’s intensity levels. The fan can be attached to a tripod via a ¼” screw hole in its base.

The casing is made from ABS plastic, and an integrated metal mesh acts as a safeguard to prevent external items, such as hair, from being pulled into the fan during operation.
