Early Planning for the summers : RECHARGEABLE FANS : Info needed

I need info about the rechargeable fans available in the market. The one with the largest diameter.

What batteries are used in it ?

What is the average price of batteries ?

I got 12 inch ones, since 14 inch ones were said to be market fails. Manufactured by sogo. Were 2500 each.

They use the same batteries as those phillips bazooka emergency lights.

Get a new battery, and the fan will run 1-1.5 hours... perhaps even two.

Give it 6-8 weeks and you WILL need to replace the battery... That costs 250-400.

So I have to replace batteries after just 6-8 weeks ?

12 inch fan ....... does it produce enough air for hot summers ?

not really...but its better than nothing...you have to sit really close to the fan to get any air...

what if we put it on the bed side-table angled well towards body ?

Mate, forget about em. Ive wasted around 10,000rs total in various fans and lights over the years. The only thing I still have working is a single tube light (out of ... 9 or 11 maybe) ... and it works for ... 10-12 mins. 15 if I turn it off and on again!

Get a UPS. 120amp batt and a sadha UPS. Couple of fans and couple of savers for atleast 5 hours.

Precisely. @ Sir Ahsan.

As with fan, yeah, 6-8 weeks if you are lucky.

And, no the air flow/blow is really rather weak. Plastic blades on the fan, rather flexible ones.. what do you expect :P

I thought they are good
