    VIDEO: Keeping Cool: Battery Operated Ridgeline Fans

    I tested four different ridgeline fans. You may be surprised by the results.

    Great job again Sarge. I use the one below and not sure about the weight, but I am sure the two D batteries weigh more than the fan. If I keep the speed on low I can get through 2 nights. Yes I do manage to hook this fan onto my ridgeline with some bungee.

    Yah, the fans in the video are some that I've collected over the years. I was kind of surprised that the little 02 Cool fan crapped out as its actually the first time it failed me and was the first fan I ever got.

    I'm guessing you're not "ultra light".

    Thanks! This is stuff I've talked about around a campfire for the past couple of years. Its fun to extend that campfire circle out electronically to hundreds of folks.
