扇風機は英語でfanと言います。
携帯型扇風機は以下の言い方ができます。

(1)a portable fan
portableには「持ち運びができる、持ち運びに便利な、携帯用の」という意味があります。
携帯用の機器にはこの単語を使うことが多いです。a portable computer「携帯用パソコン」、a portable music player「携帯用ミュージックプレイヤー」など。

(2)a travel fan
travel「旅行、移動」などの意味があり、こちらも携帯用扇風機として使われている単語です。

(3)a mini fan
mini「小型の」という意味です。
こちらは「小型扇風機」という意味となり、
家庭用の小さな扇風機もこちらで言い表すことができます。

(例1)
Recently, I have seen many people with portable fans.
「最近、携帯型扇風機を持っている人をたくさん見かける。」

(例2)
You should take a travel fan if you go to a theme park in the summer.
「もし夏に遊園地に行くのであれば、携帯型扇風機を持って行った方がいいですよ。」

This is definitely a small or mini fan.
Since you can hold it in your hand you can call it a hand held fan.
Since you can travel with it quite easily, you can call it a traveler's fan.
携帯型扇風機のことを、small fanやmini fanと言います。

また手に持つので、 hand held fanと言うこともできます。

とても容易に持ち運びができるので、 traveler's fanとも言います。

If you want to know what to call a tiny fan that you can hold and bring around with you to places, you can call it a "handheld fan" or a "portable fan". This means that it is a small fan that probably uses batteries so you can use it at your convenience.
携帯型扇風機のことを "handheld fan" や"portable fan"と言います。

これは、おそらく電池式の小さな扇風機で便利なものです。

All three of these definitions can be used interchangeably to have the same meaning as what we can see in the picture. Most commonly we could refer to this as a portable fan because, "portable," describes that you can carry this fan around with you everywhere. We can use, "hand-held," because it is small enough to fit and be held in your hand. Lastly, we can also use, "mini," to describe the size itself.
これら3つとも、携帯型扇風機を表す言葉で、同じように使うことができます。

最も一般的なのが、portable fanで、 "portable"とは、どこでも持ち運びができるという意味だからです。

手に収まるほど小さいので、"hand-held"と言うこともできます。 また、"mini"は、そのサイズが小さいことを表します。

A fan that is portable is called a "portable fan" or a "hand-held" fan.
"Hand-held" is a descriptor that denotes that something is held in hand and mobile.

You may use these phrases in the following ways:
-I need to get myself a portable fan because it gets very hot in the train.
-I need a hand-held fan because it's usually too hot in summer and I need it for places where there is no air conditioning.
「携帯型扇風機」は英語で "portable fan" または "hand-held fan" といいます。
"hand-held" は「手に持って携帯できる」という意味の形容詞です。

これらのフレーズは次のように使うことができます。
-I need to get myself a portable fan because it gets very hot in the train.
(電車の中がすごく暑くなるから携帯型の扇風機を買わないといけない)

-I need a hand-held fan because it's usually too hot in summer and I need it for places where there is no air conditioning.

ご質問どうもありがとうございます。
このような商品は、英語では「hand-held fan」(手で持って操作できる扇風機)または「mini fan」(ミニ扇風機)とも言います。特に、あつい夏のときはよく見えますね。

お好みに合わせて使い分けてみてください。
ご参考にしていただければ幸いです。

A personal fan is one that is small, compact, easily portable, and one that provides a bit of comfort on a hot, sweltering day. These fans can cost in the range of one dollar for a fan that you can hold in the palm of your hand, upwards to twenty dollars for one with blades the size of one of your hands or two hands. Cool!

These types of fans are very useful when we are on the go, or where air conditioning is not used so much. We can use them outside as well as inside. They are quite small and can be carried around in your bag.

"I must buy a handheld fan. I am always sweating and I am tired of using tissues to clean my face"

"That mini fan looks good. I wonder if it will help me keep cool"

A small electric fan that you can carry about when you are walking outside - or use inside - would be called 'a hand fan'. So as not to confuse it with a traditional paper fan, you would probably be best to include the word 'electric' to be perfectly clear.
"John bought an electric hand fan in the recent hot weather."
