12 Volt DC Vent Fan Compatibility With 110 Volt AC Plug


I followed the recommendation in this expert reply for the ability to plug in my 12 volt fantastic vent into an AC plug- https://www.etrailer.com/question-199207.html. After installing the vent and doing the wiring I noticed the vent fan was not spinning all that fast when plugged into AC. When I plug into the DC port of my portable battery supply it goes much faster. It looks like the AC plug convert part # PP01 is only rated for 1amp where I believe the high setting of the fan runs at 3amps. Could someone look into this for me?


Expert Reply:

The fan # FV801208 should run at full capacity at 2.1 amps which equates to 25 watt on a 12V DC system. The # PP01 may minimize that amperage since it appears to limit you, I recommend the Power Converter for Fan-Tastic Vent Endless Breeze Portable Box Fan # FV1101-09 which will allow you up to 5.8 amps for a fully functioning fan.
