What is the weight of this fan? I need to hang it above a small grandchild so I need to know how heavy it is in case it should fall. How secure are the attachments that keep it up?
Sharon, the weight is about 2 pounds and I would attach it will a carabiner so it will remain secure even if you bump it.
It's great having a fan on car camping trips, even in the cooler months. I use the fan to recirculate heat from a propane heater in my tent prior to getting in. It's like central air. The two light functions and two speed settings make this a versatile fan.

Love the ceiling fan...batteries last for ever/ we camped last week into 93+ and 85 % hum.
A breath of fresh air
This is great thing to have on car camping trips, too heavy for backpacking but worth using when you can. It's essential when I'm using my old canvas tent. Light is good lights up enough for me and my boys to get around when prepping for bed.
I've had this thing for about 5 years now. Since day 1 its never been OMG amazing. That being said, its done a decent job. The light,when on high is plenty to keep my 6 person tent lit enough to chit chat and play cards. On low its barely anything, less light then a kids night light. The fan on High, doesn't give off that much wind. BUT the little bit it gives off is a heck of a lot better than nothing on those hot stuffy nights. I originally said this thing was worthless, and I forgot it at home on a trip. I was sorely missing it when I didnt have it that trip w/ the temp in the 80s at night.
The weight like the other guy stated is aprox around 5lbs, for that reason I'd say ditch it for backpacking trips. For car camping its nice to have.
Again for the $20 or so I paid, its worth it and I recommend it for hot summer nights
This thing is cool
No pun intended, but this fan is cool. Four D-cell batteries makes it a little heavy (maybe 5 pounds) but the weight is worth it for a nice breeze inside a warm tent. I use this fan primarily inside a Rock 22 tent, though I have placed it on the nightstand and experienced favorable results. It's not a household box fan (obviously), but it gets the job done. Air flow is in one direction (down), the bright LED light is sufficient for reading and the battery life is as advertised. The d-ring is sufficient for suspending this fan from inside any decent tent - the magnet will work if you don't have a ceiling loop. Overall this is a great fan and well worth the $20 (USD).
Is it reversable flow...either down or up...
Is it reversable flow...either down or up air flow?
Only down. Switching the batteries around doesn't reverse the flow (or at least it didn't on my fan).

How strong is the fan? I want to know if it will blow a nice breeze or just blow some hot air around like those useless Auto Cool car fans.
