I just purchased one of many gadgets for the Ollie thought I’d share it. From where else amazon.  The make is Opolar model # CF02 mini car fan.  It has USB plugin, mounts anywhere with suction cup. Has four fan speeds and is super quite. It moves a lot of air. The only thing is the USB cable is 10’ long i had a 6” cable that works great. I posted the pictures of it mounted. I’m not sure how to post the item on this site from amazon. If any one can help? Thanks I’m going to purchase a 2nd for the other side.

I can’t post a link to an Amazon product from within the Amazon app using an iPad or an android.  So I go to the Amazon site through a web browser and copy the link from there.  As an example, see the picture below.  Copy “amazon.com” from the browser search bar. It is the highlighted window in the picture and paste that in the posting.  You can paste that in a different browser window to test it.

Cute little fan. Must not use much power to run on a usb. Let us know how it works out.

 

I wish Vornado would make the Zippi in a 12v version. So far, everything Vornado that I've seen requires shore power or an inverter.

 

 

 

Another alternative, and cute choice, is the highly rated Caframo Ultimate marine fan. Watch for sales, it's definitely a bit pricier, but great ratings in the sailing community.Caframo Ultimate

Landrover,

Are you satisfied with how well the fan functions and suction cup hold in place? (I just noticed currently unavailable on Amazon). Bummer.
Thanks,

Patriot

I am really happy with this mod, it is way better than a 120v AC Vornado or similar fan. It is quiet and efficient both in moving air and sipping battery power. And the white color blends in with the Ollie interior better than black.

Patriot i like them. The suction works well hadn’t fallen off yet, very quite. Lying in bed about 5’ away you can feel the air moving. As others have shown there are a lot of different types out there. I’m happy 👍🏼

The caframo fans have awesome reviews, for decades. It's all about how much work you want to do, and how much you want to spend.

Caframo is not inexpensive.  But a known quantity in the boating world.

Here is a picture of both fans for reference. 
The white Caframo fan is 12v and cost $99.  The black Lemoistar fan is 5v USB and cost $16.

Each fan has a different purpose for me.  The Caframo is generally used for cooling or air movement.  The Lemoistar replaced the fan below which topgun2 gave me to help reduce false alarms from the Atwood propane/CO sensor under the dinette table.

The USB flexible stick fan lasted about 2 weeks for me.  So I ordered a 3 pack from Amazon, sent one to topgun2 to replace his.  And my new one last 3 weeks.  Then I ordered the Lemoistar for mounting on the wall under the table.  And it works well for the intended purpose.

I ultimately replaced the Atwood sensor which solved the false alarm issue.  So we now use the Lemoistar where ever needed.

But we never travel with either fan mounted or unsecured.
