Best 12V portable fan?

I'm staying in my parents' driveway with no 50-AMP and therefore no A/C. I've heard good things about the Fan-Tastic Vent 01100WH Endless Breeze 12V Fan. Is it worth the price ($79 at Amazon)?

Can anyone recommend another good portable fan that runs on 12V?

Thank you!

Liz

O2 Cool

Camping world sells them in a couple of sizes.

The one we bought works on it's own batteries, a 12v cigarette lighter adapter, or a 120-12v wall wart power supply. It runs for a long time on it's own batteries and is relatively quiet.

Fantastic fans work well too, but they have to be permanently installed.

I've had, and used, an Endless Breeze since they first came out, 10+ years ago.
IMO it has been/is worth the $63 I paid for it....(I know of no other 3 speed quiet high quality 12V portable fan).

I have one that was used when I had FW's without a generator. It allowed me to dry camp a number of times even in hot weather. It moves a lot of air and is relatively quiet. I consider it a good purchase.

Thank you everyone for the input. I ordered the Endless Breeze from PPL for $60.

If you're careful with everything else, you can us the AC on 20 amps.

We use a fan like this:

O2 Cool 8" Battery Operated Electric Portable Fan - Walmart.com

It works on 120 v, 12 v, or D cell batteries.

I tried using the A/C. It didn't work. Thanks.
