Cheap solar

I just got a solar panel/fan from these folks for $16. The panel is about a foot by two feet and comes with a 48 volt fan. I got mine yesterday and it does move some air. It would be perfect for a vent fan for a camper

Re: Cheap solar

I think that is a 12V fan.

And the add probably means >175ma, since those little fans take about 100ma to run.

It will move air, and basically for free.

Nope! It's a 48 volt fan and panel and that's why they are cheap I would think

Re: Cheap solar

That's really odd, since the panel puts out 25V open circuit.

As long as it works.

It looks like a cooling fan from inside of a desktop computer.
