This fan is phenominal!!!

Great little fan for the money. Batteries last a long time, plus it's adjustable to make them last even longer. I think this is the 4th one we've bought, and we're still using...Read complete review

We use this fan on our boat and as cruisers who live on the boat all summer, you need to have the adapter and plug it into power for it to run all night. We just bought ours in June 2016 and it only runs for 27 minutes and then stops when run on battery power alone. If you like to anchor or want to use it without plugging it in, then don't count on it running all night. Having said all this, it is a quiet little fan, but not one to choose for staying at anchor.

      Comments about Battery-Powered Crew Fans:

      Good for small spaces; great fan for nightstand (although it does not drown out noises) or desk, but not much else as it's not very powerful. Fan was recommended by a friend who said their batteries lasted a long time, but that was not the case with mine. Definitely a good little fan for limited uses.

          Comments about Battery-Powered Crew Fans:

          The quality of these fans has changed over the last year or so. I have received many where the electrical leads are not soldered correctly and the blade hub just flies off of the unit. Also recently I had one catch fire in the battery compartment. So I hope they make appropriate corrections so that I can have the same reliable fans that I enjoyed 2 years ago.

          Comments about Battery-Powered Crew Fans:

          Had the first two units returned because of bad switch. It may have been a bad 'batch' from the factory. The last unit had a separate low/off/hi switch.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was EXCELLENT and timely. West Marine was excellent in exchanging units.

            Good little fan that I use at my feet on the boat for cooing and keeping the flys away. The base is heavy from the 4 D batteries so the fan stays put!

                Comments about Caframo Battery-Powered Crew Fans:

                I bought my fan nearly a year ago, and I use it out back at work, it fits nicely on the baler (it's a cardboard baler and there's groves on the door that are wide enough, and it's used as a shelve, the fan fits nicely on the grove.) The fan kept keep me a bit cooler last summer, and I plan on using the fan again for it working in the back rook at store. It moves quite a bit of air on high. The battery life is fairly good, a suggestion, stock up on d batteries ahead of time, or use rechargeable batteries for the fan. Also at home the same fan is great by the computer keeping me cooler, and I don't have to plug in to an outlet. It's portable for work and home. I am glad I bought this fan.

                  I used this fan on boats when bunk rooms lacked electrical outlets or -a cooling system. These little fans also came in handy during a recent trip to Central America. I stayed in a local families' home and there was no air conditioning. These fans kept me cool in a stuffy room that had no air conditioning nor ventilation....they pack easily for travel as well.

                        Just returned from a two day sailboat trip on my Nonsuch 22. I used the fan for sleeping and in the cockpit during the 96 degree heat wave. It was wonderful especially during the one day and night there was no wind. My wife did me good when she bought me two of these for Father's Day.
