    Default looking for a low power low cost 12Vdc fan for my sailboat.

    I am looking at the RoadPro-RP8000 for $25.
    It only uses 1 amp so if I run it for 8 hours that is only 8 amp hours per day.
    My Group 27 battery holds about 45 Amp Hours of usable energy so I should be good for a weekend trip.

    Anyone have a different solution?

    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Real low power and really cheap, would be to extract one from an old computer.

    Hwyl, I have done that, twice. Works very well. Juice comes from a solar panel.

    This one puts out a lot of breeze. I have one. It will work on 6 D cell batteries or AC. I will be looking to buy or build a 12 to 9 volt converter though.
