Family Camping With Tent Fans - ipanergy
A tent fan is handy for very warm temperatures and still weather, when the climate inside the tent body can become uncomfortable for relaxing or sleeping.
The fan aids evaporation from the skin, cooling the body.
A camping fan can also provide air circulation inside a tent that doesn't have enough screen area, has been closed up for privacy or has been sealed against the rain.
A tent fan features multiple speeds to move more air or to conserve battery power. The fan may also offer an LED night light to illuminate the tent body after dark.
A camping fan is also useful in cool weather, where it can provide enough air circulation inside the tent body to reduce condensation.
Since tent fans run on small household batteries, they are easy to transport, making them ideal for enhancing family tent camping.
A tent fan does not have to be specifically labeled as a tent fan. Any battery-powered personal, desk or travel fan will work. Tent fans mainly have special attachment points for tent ceiling loops or for tent fabric and run on D-cell batteries, so they have plenty of current to run for long periods of time.
If you're renting a campsite with electricity, you can pack a house fan to ventilate the tent.
Tent fans are designed to either circulate air throughout the tent, to provide spot cooling for a single camper, or both.
Camping fans are D-cell powered units using from 1 to 8 alkaline batteries. More batteries offer more ventilation or longer runtime.
Small, personal, spot-cooling fans are available that attach to tent fabric via magnets and stream air over a single camper. This fan has soft, small blades with no cage around them. It usually runs on a single battery.
A medium-size camping fan can ventilate a tent body. This is often a 6-volt device, running on 4 D-cell alkaline batteries.
If renting a tent campsite with electricity, you can bring a house fan.
12-volt tent fans
Some large camping fans run on 12-volt electricity and feature a cigarette lighter adaptor plug.
These fans provide a lot of ventilation in the outdoors. At the highest setting, a large 12-volt fan can move as much air as a medium-size house fan.
This type of fan draws too much current for alkaline batteries and needs to be powered by a lead-acid battery, similar to the battery in a vehicle or garden tractor. Deep-cycle, lead-acid batteries are better designed for this type of use than vehicle-starting, lead-acid batteries are.
These fans can have large battery-powered requirements, especially if run on high settings or for extended periods of time.
Only a minority of family tent campers will want to transport a separate lead-acid battery, which might weigh 50 lb., to power a 12-volt fan.
