          I use this fan at the flea market with a solar panel powering it. I live in Florida and in the summer you have to have some air movement.

          Comments about AutoCraft Oscillating Fan, 12V:

          I did not receive a fan by "Bell Automotive", but a fan by "Advance" which I guess is the same. The clip is very, very sterdy and easy to handle and I love how you can adjust the fan in any direction. The only problem I found is finding a place to clip the fan that did not interfear with my driving, and no matter what anyone says, a fan on a very hot and humid day is not like having air conditioning! The fan only blows extream hot air around which I found uncomfortable.

          Comments about AutoCraft Oscillating Fan, 12V:

          I bought this fan to distribute air better in my camper van (a Chevy Express). I'm using a propane heater for warmth and the heat was only rising and making the ceiling alarmingly hot while the rest of the van was cold... I mounted this fan unside down from the van's ceiling and it does a great job of moving the air around thus also keeping the plywood ceiling from getting too hot, too!

          I'm glad I bought this noisy little fan. The only thing I really didn't like was that when hung upside down by the dash mount, the unit rattled in the dash mount - likely not a problem when attached right side up. I fixed that issue by cramming the dash mount bracket full of 5 lb rated outdoor adhesive tape from a home store.

          It's a cute little fan for the price and easy to position to just the right place. I would buy it again. The only reason I didn't give it all fiver stars was the dash bracket as well as the high noise level.

            The air conditioning in my sister's family van died - too expensive to fix - bought her the fan and she loves it!

                I'm glad to assist, Phil! Modifying the wiring may cause excessive current draw which can damage the wiring, units and surrounding equipment.

              What is the CFM of this fan?

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Sorry, there is not technical data available for the cubic feet per minute [CFM] for this fan; I was not able to locate the RPM either to try and convert to CFM. It is a basic 12 volt fan, so it is not going to be that high. This fan is designed more for close range air circulation.
