    camping fan

    Walmart has a a/c fan that is no bigger than a softball, all metal,super quiet that moves a lot of air for it's size. It is perfect for a tent at a campsite with electric and it costs $6.

    I think he means AC, alternating current or a fan to move the air from the air conditioner.

    I bought 3 fans from Amazon. All are battery powered with 'D' cells. 1 is a light and fan that hangs in the center of my tent. There are not a lot of options Hi/Lo fan and On/Off for the light. The other 2 are just fans.

    Fans ... Gotta love 'em ... They take up very little realestate in a camper while traveling, and they weigh next to nothing, yet move enough air to keep most people comfortable on a hot summer night ...

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    I've been using a OC-Cool 10" fan. It uses D cell batteries or can be plugged in. Surprisingly the batteries lasted for several weekend camping trips. $30 at Target.

    After re-reading the post, I think you're right. I just always associate AC with Air Conditioning...

    Re: camping fan

    For those of us who travel uber-light, I've been using this Coleman Zephyr Mini-Fan for years. It's been a real lifesaver, especially when you're camping in hot weather and you just want to take a nap or get to sleep but it's just too hot to do so.

    http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Compan...an+camping+fan

    I wrap a heavy rubber band around it and, with a small carabiner s-clip, hang in the tent where it will blow at me. Turn it on (watch you don't get your fingers in the blades...It'll smart a bit, I know from experience ...and you're good to go. I've found that the batteries will last long enough to keep me cool until the night-time temperatures kick in, but I always bring a couple of spares just in case.

    It's dirt cheap, takes up no room at all, and you can find them almost anywhere.
    I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.

    Here is a link to what I bought a little on the larger side but ultra light quiet and best of all either 18v battery powered or 120v ac
    Already own 18v cordless tools from Ridgid so I figured it would get used either camping or around the house.
    So far have used in hpme more it move lots of air!!
