It is larger than due to the use of a D cell battery but the outside sleeve and clip is removeable which makes it much slimmer to hold. I haven't tested how long it will last on one D cell battery but with rechargeables, that shouldn't matter too much.
The fan part is adjustable and can be set at various angles with 7 "click" points.
The suction cup at the bottom is strong but I would not recommend it on vertical surfaces unless it is smooth like glass. Even there, it would stick for about 15 minutes before falling off.
I think you would be pleased with this fan.
I returned it and might try Sharper Image's one. While those reviews aren't very laudatory, I'm not putting much stock in people's reviews these days after my experience with this "Tiny Tornado."
The outer shell is removable, and had a belt clip on it which is handy for carrying outdoors activities. Once removed, the fan is just a slim plastic cylinder with a screw off bottom lid for the battery insertion spot. It does seem a little...cheap once the cover is removed. If you dropped it without the shell, I wouldn't be surprised if it cracked.
Once turned on, the fan has a low hum, not real annoying. It has only on and off setting no speed setting. The fan itself is rubbery, and doesn't hurt to touch, I've had a 3 year old touch the fan wings while it was running on fresh batteries and simply giggle, then made a game out of it.
The neck glides a full half circle ALMOST. So you can turn the fan to point directly at you at 90degrees, and without turning the actual fan, you can make the fan point in the opposite direction to almost 90 degrees also, behind hindered a little by the belt clip in that direction.
The suction cup is...well...I havn't really noticed it working at all. I guess if I wetted it or really worked at having it suction it'd be okay. Though, I have no use for the suction cup as of yet.
In my estimation, the battery seems to last 3 - 4 hours, slowly dwindling in speed as time ticks. My biggest complaint is sometimes the fan needs whacked or the wings manually started if the battery is getting a little low. As if the motor needs a little jump start, it's either cause mine is defective or just how it is. It is a small motor after all so somewhat expected. Either way, I use this fan often and love it.Read more ›
It's whisper quiet and can be used to create a little circulation all night: I've hung it in a tent on a cross-country tour. I've used in a sailboat in Hawaii. Alkalines go forever and rechargeables go most of the night.
On a weekly basis, I use it to dry out my dry suit, and I stick it to the tile wall to keep my glasses clear of steam when reading in the tub. I've found that by wetting the suction cup slightly and pushing the cup in pace until the fan bottoms out, the suction cup will hold for hours.
Just be aware that the 2 pieces separate.
In addition, they are much quieter than anything else on the market, so will not disturb the people around you who are not having dripping perspiration problems. (I think it's always nice to be thoughtful if possible.)
They are larger than smaller handheld varieties, but much more versatile and quite easy to hold for long periods of time. I have gotten in the habit of using my extra to temporarily relieve fellow travelers. Nice way to make friends!

Seems well made but has a ticking sound that's not just air flow. Amazon returned my money. I bought this because their electric model was quiet until that day and it broke. Read morePublished 2 months ago by HAWAIIAN1111
