JT Vortex Fan vs. X-Wind Fan

What's the difference between the two fans? They're the same price, so which one should I get?

Did you check the reviews?
I have personally only tried the X-wind, and i can say that it worked very well.

Yeah, I checked the reviews. They din't really compare to each other. My guess is that the Vortex can blow in air or out, while the x-wind is only one way.

For the people that have used the fan, i know it's to keep your lense from fogging but does it keep you cooler during the hot summers? I just want to hear from people with personal experiences.

Can someone confirm the differences???

I just bought the VORTEX, as that was all that was listed on the JT website...then I see the X-Wind. Are there fitment issues as well as bi-directional fan usage???

Thanks.

I believe the difference between the two is in order for the X-wind to suck you have to switch the batteries around and on the Vortex you don't have to. Other than that I don't think there is any more differences.
