    I got one of these at the WW for 1.69. It seems to do a good job, but I just got it, so I can't report about battery life yet. Foam blades keep from hurting my bugnet (or my head)

    I guess you and I have the older blue one... and they're perfect for that extra bit of air movement!

It has an impellar style fan that is encased, so there are no "blades" to worry about. And, it has a belt clip that clips right on the your hammock RL without any modification. It works well for me. YMMV.

    Yep, got mine at a local Walmart for $1.63, swapped out the AAA battery with a good one that lasted all night this past Sat.

    There is a little switch under the cover that the repellant cartridge is supposed to depress when the cover is shut. I cut a little plastic piece off of the packaging and put it over the little switch where the cartridge normally goes. Works like a charm.

    I like the Off! mod! I found one of those and it didn't keep the skeeters away for anything. Sounds like it's time to put it to another use!

    On the older blue ones... There is a slit in the cover with a little paddle under the opening... If you just press your finger in there hard enough you can depress it far enough to get the switch to come on... I have also used a zipper "handle" to push it in before i knew my finger fit...

    I picked up a little "neck fan" from Wal-Mart for $5! It runs off two AA batteries & works great!
    Sorry I can't find a picture of it!

    Nu, I picked up the same thing (little black rectangle) at the same time I got the two 02 fans. It seemed they were just more efficient, however, the Hennessy has a built in storage thingy on the ridgeline that would hold it perfectly where I wanted it so I could have a nice steady quiet downdraft...
