Got ours from dunelm mill for £12. Brilliant, so quiet you can have it on at night and if needed it really makes air move when on high. It's a 12 inch oscillating desk/table fan

How about something like THIS ?

 

I've ordered one for using in our 'van, only 30 watt and not a bad price?

You can get 12v car fans - we had one years ago when the kids were small and we were on a basic seasonal pitch with no facilities. Clearly remember taking the TP2 Labcraft battery pack home to recharge after each weekend!

The Dyson fanattachicon.gifDyson fan. jpg is apparently fantastic . .. but so is the price!!

Yep it's really very good (hot and cold) but, at the price, only really worth considering if used at home as well.

I find all tangential fans to be noisy, as is the Dyson, and prefer the conventional 4 vane type. We have an old Philips with 3 speeds, and it is inaudible on the lowest speed. Fine for use at night. Unfortunately larger is better for air volume vs noise.

Well I know I'm going to sound thick but I haven't a clue, WHAT tangential means!??? I'd be guessing at 4 vane being the propellor ones??? . . I need a lesson in science/physics!!!!

Sorry! Tangential is like the one in post #4. Yes I meant I preferred the 4 blade like a propeller. The tangential style have more thin slats and tend to be noisier. A well designed (amazing how much technology is used in designing propeller blades!) 4-blade works very well but is perhaps a less convenient shape. A 12" size is a good compromise in size vs air flow, still moving plenty of air at low speeds, as you get down to 6-8" they clearly move a lot less air and need a higher speed to compete.

 

Probably just muddied the water for you!

The Dyson fan is definitely quieter than ANY other fan Ive used, I have one here in front of me now and it's inaudible the lowest speed and very quiet on the fastest.

We bought an ordinary desk top fan years ago from B&Q. It lives in the caravan. It must be about 15 inches across, maybe smaller ? It is really effective. It saved us when we were in the Vendee and it was 40+ degrees during the day. It meant we slept at least !
