Absolutely awesome little fan that kicks butt even in the Texas heat. Also has finger safe blades which have been very successfully tested by my 3 and 1 year old children. I tried all of the other listed fans and liked this one best so we bought 3 for our sailboat cabin.

For all the time that Caframo has been making these fans, you would think that they would have their quality under control. Yet the brand new fan I bought has an unbalanced blade with the attendant shakes and rattles.\

OTOH, I do like the new fixed mounting system better.

    Comments about Two-Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

    I have two of these now, bought one of these many years ago, it moves a lot of air. I have not used the hard mount, I use the suction cup. A must have for hot weather. the new fan seems to have a better plug on it for the cig lighter. the older fan plug shorted out. I replaced it and works fine. These are a little noisey when used on high setting but I suppose all fans are. In my opinion, they are a little pricey at West Marine,
    paid aroud fifty dollars for it.

          Worked great in store, so I purchased one.
          Only when I hooked it up, the fan spun in reverse.
          Have to bring back

                these fans are rubbish.i bought 3 of them 4 and a half months ago.i have just mounted the 3rd one to replace the previous 2 in the same mount.they start throwing out black powder within weeks and gradually get noisier to an unbearable point.solar is so cheap now, better to buy more solar and run 220/110 fans.only good point is they chew 0.3 of an amp.

                  Comments about Two-Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

                  We have used 4 of these fans in our sailboat in Baja California for a number of years. They are lifesavers. However, we recently bought 4 more for our camper. Noticed that the new ones have an improved base design. However, of the 3 we've installed, every one of them has shut down for no apparent reason at one time or another. They act as if they're overheating because we can start them back up once they've sat for awhile. Yes, it's gotten hot in the camper but no where near as hot as the boat. We're pretty unhappy as, when it's hot is when we need them.

                  • Permanent mount

                  Comments about Two Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

                  The fan output is acceptable, and the noise is minimal. Suction cup base does not work, causing the fan to be easily knocked over. When it falls over the motor continues to turn inside the fan hub liquifying the plastic, but put it back together quickly and the plastic hardens around the spindle, and all is well again. Best to use permanent mount. I would recommend with caveats.

                    Comments about Two Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

                    Have 6 of these onboard, great fans, but the new ones come with a suction cup that is much too stiff to use. The older ones had a great suction cup (black) that would hold on any smooth surface. If you use the included permanent mount or optional clamps then fine but the new suction mounts are useless
