Worked great until it stopped working

I wanted a small fan to cool off my tent in the warmer months. I bought this one because it was a good price and seemed to be a good design for car camping. However, when I went to buy 4 D batteries I was surprised at how much they cost, which makes this unit a little more expensive to operate than I had planned. Fortunately, I searched around and found a good deal on a 12-pack of batteries and got ready to take this fan on my first camping trip. When I put the batteries in and turned it on, I was happily surprised that this fan has almost as much power as any of the electric fans I've used. Unfortunately, I went to sleep and two hours later I woke up to find the fan was no longer working. I thought maybe it had used up the cheap batteries already, so I replaced the batteries, but it still didn't work with new batteries. I really like everything about this fan when it does work (plus I now have a ton of D batteries I don't need for anything else!), so I'm going to bring it back and exchange it for another one which I hope will have a much longer life than 2 hours!

Perfect for me!

I am on disability. I am easily affected by temperature changes (mostly heat). I had little hand held fans, spray bottles and the like. They were hard to set down if I had to fill out forms in doctor's office, etc. This has two speeds, and the stand will allow it to be set on a chair or table. Very quiet. Several people have asked me where I got it since it is so quiet. I take it to church, to all appointments, shopping--anywhere I might need help with temperature. I love it. Want to get another one as a back-up so I am not caught without one. Foam blades are perfect. 4 D batteries last a long time. Couldn't be happier!

Works and is quiet

We've used this at Burning Man for a few years now at night, and it works fine for us till the tent cools down. It's considerably quieter than the smaller, cheaper AA-powered fans, which is a big plus when you're trying to sleep.

We go for a week and use the fan for a few hours each night, and the batteries have lasted the whole week under our use (fresh set each year, of course).

Reliable fan

My son took it to camp and his camp-mates kept borrowing it. The batteries make it rather heavy but it has worked for a long time on the same set of batteries. We have 2 now and used them this summer at home when our power went out (no AC!). We are very happy with this fan.

Save your time and money

I bought 2 of these fans for a camping trip in Mo. It just happened to be the hottest day of the year. It was 100 degrees that day and the night was 98. The first night they worked like a champ. We were so excited. They went through the 4 D cell batteries. But lucky for me I had enough brand new batteries for each night out. So the next night we replaced the batteries in each fan and then they would not turn on. We checked the placement of the batteries and the fans would not run. We were never able to use them again. I will be returning them to REI ASAP. I would not count on this product to be dependable.

Great fan for 24 hours

So disappointed with this fan: it worked like a charm for 24 hours. Great wind speed and cooled my 11 year old dog, myself and hubby in a four man tent on a coastal SC island. I changed the batteries and it then no longer functioned at all.

This was the second purchase of this fan because I like it's lightweight adaptability and I was hoping it had been improved. Maybe Coleman should place the batteries directly behind the blade motor. So sad because it is a wonderful idea.

Great Expectations -- No Delivery

This fan rocked my camping world... for one two-day trip. After that, the wires connecting the fan to the base shorted out and never worked consistently again (if I hold them in just the right position, it works... but when I take my hand away, it breaks). Very frustrating, because when it worked, it was awesome.

great idea, poor execution

Bought the fan for the heat of burning man- worked for 15 minutes, then fan began to make ungodly noises, and slowed down- you get what you pay for

I just threw mine in the garbage.

I just threw it in the dumpster.

Not a travel fan.

I ordered this fan to use in a dormitory setting in Honduras, where there is no air-conditioning. It was too big and bulky to put in my carry-on luggage, and I was afraid it was not sturdy enough to place in my checked bag. It was quiet enough and may be great for a tent, but definitely not appropriate for air travel. The on-off switch was defective, so I had to return the fan anyway.
