CAFRAMO
Two-Speed Compact 12V DC Fan

Quiet and compact, this fan provides air flow equal to much larger units, yet it draws a minuscule 0.5A. The two-speed motor creates minimal electronic interference so you can safely mount this fan on the bridge or at the nav station. It comes with a screw-down mount and also includes a suction cup mount so you can move it about your boat. An optional clothespin-style mount allows additional mounting versatility. Includes a 6' cord with cigarette-lighter-style plug.

  • Draw: High: 0.55A/Low: 0.36A
  • Capacity: 270cu.ft./min.
  • CFM: 200
  • Blade: Soft plastic
  • Safety Features: FingerSafe™ blades
  • Dimensions: 7-1/2"H x 4"W x 3-3/4"D

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.

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.

    Comments about Two-Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

    This was a replacement for an older Caframo that just started to get noisy. They had other fans, but this was as quiet, used and RCH more current, but blew noticeably more air which was the key factor.

      Comments about Two-Speed Compact 12V DC Fan:

      We are full-time cruisers who use this as our primary cabin fan. It runs and runs on the lower setting which moves plenty of air. Wish we could afford another one to replace the noisy, worthless, cheap fan in the v-berth.

        Great fan, moves a lot of air quietly. Lack of guard grill is not an issue. Great value for money.

            I used this in my Ranger 6x6 with full cab to move air and keep windows free of moisture. It worked fine when a little heat was added in the cab.

              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.

                    Only when I hooked it up, the fan spun in reverse.

                    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.
