Was at Dollarama today and noticed this Cooling Fan for car. It has air vent clip and 12v car lighter charger. I think it illuminates in blue or purple color. Also has on/off switch. Not sure how good they are though.

Clipping a fan to a car's air vent seems about as useful as a solar powered flashlight

Hard plastic of soft and flexable? My motorhome could use some in back foe circulation. The cab AC isnt enough to cool the entire interior. Been looking for a cheap 12v fan

what's this thing supposed to do? speed up the air coming out of your can's fan vent already or significantly cool down the air blowing out the vent much like your ac does?

if it acts as sort of an external ac i can see how it would be useful if your car's ac is messed up or you want extra fuel efficiency as using the ac in your car does lower your car’s fuel efficiency by an average of 3 miles per gallon (U.S. stat) depending on the age and size of your car. not exactly the most attractive accessory for your car but if you're already scraping by with crappy ac this could possibly help.

Missing the point people.

All cars have vents for heat, with air conditioning or not. The vent clip would be used for when said person with no AC wants some air blowing.

I think this not being designed for those with AC is a given...

The flash light would be more useful , you just gotta charge it first

I remember back in the days when my dad had a 65 Camaro, and didn't have AC. Seating insider in the mid summer was brutal. Having something like this might be helpful. However, fast forward nowaday, when most car comes with AC as standard. I don't really see the point of having a vent attached fan. Perhaps it helps when the engine is off. Who knows.

"if" it works as well, or close to as well, as ac using this in place of your own ac would improve your cars fuel's efficiency (as i stated earlier). less money spent on gas would be a bonus.
