Magnet only kept the fan secured to my tent when it was off. (on the plus side it was off most of the time.) I wasn't using a terribly thick tent, and still it wouldn't stay, no matter how i bent and positioned it. We had a structural engineer and a contractor even try... nothing.
Finally got it plugged in on top of the tent with the included carabiner. The cord came no where near reaching it. Had to rig up a separate battery to operate it. Why would the make the cord so short?!?! Used a solar system that worked fine until...
The carabiner snapped. Have no idea how it happened or why. We were in 100 degree plus temps. We came back to the tent a little later and it was lying on the air mattress.
The battery pack was absolutely terrible. It was garbage. The battery compartment wouldn't stay it on, it kept popping off. When we finally tried relocating the fan with the it sorta resting on the base and using the magnets it refused to turn on at all using the supplied power pack. (This was about 12 hours after placing fresh $12 worth of fresh of Energizers in there.) No idea why. We had everything working on the power supply and nothing. As near as I can tell the batteries somehow ran down even though it wasn't being used by anyone or anything. Maybe someone accidentally turned it on? But more likely it was the same problem causing the cover to keep popping off.
This was the worst performing item on my whole camping trip. I had some other ones that were disappointing or over priced, but this one was frustrating and downright painful. Also not sure if they come in different colors but my fan was more of an OD green. Man I hate this thing.
UPDATE 8/6/13 - decreasing stars
I finally broke down and purchased the required 8 D cell batteries to power the fan using the battery pack. While my previous review was very positive, I had not tested the battery pack with the 8 D Cell batteries (costs a mini fortune). I must take a step back and update my findings.
The manufacturer had a great idea, but I have found it to be a great idea gone bad when it comes to the battery pack. "Good Idea - Poor execution!!!"
They designed the battery pack in such a way that you must remove the battery cartridge and load the batteries from both ends. Then you must be sure to align the cartridge correctly using their guides to insure the batteries make contact with the proper contacts. Unfortunately one of the guide parts was not glued to the bottom of the cartridge on the unit that I received. After figuring out how it went into place facing the proper direction, I proceeded to insert the cartridge into the housing and lock the bottom portion. Turned on the power switch on the fan and the battery pack.. FAIL!!! No power. I disassembled and reassembled 3 times, each time making sure the alignments with the battery contacts were correct. Finally on the third attempt I pushed the bottom covered down and hard as I could and twisted to lock it in place. This time I had power. It would have been much simpler to design the battery holder in the same fashion as a flashlight. Somehow engineers always think re-inventing the wheel is the best approach, but they should remind themselves that if it's not broken, don't try to fix it. This battery pack will frustrate many of you who choose to purchase this fan.
Now onto the best part of my update.
The so-called Temperature Control DOES NOT WORK. In fact it seems like a poorly executed "Joke". The dial scale starts off at "OFF" then goes to "HIGH" decreasing incrementally until you get to the "LOW" setting and then finally it says "ON" (seriously??). I'm not sure I'm following their logic here. Either case, the switch is supposed to work as an attenuator, increasing power to the fan in one direction and decreasing the power in the other. It does nothing of the sort. No matter which direction you turn the knob, the power stays the same. When you turn the dial towards High, the power shuts off before you get there and way before you reach OFF. The Fan itself has 2 settings on it - I and II (high and low).
While this may be a minor issue for some, the battery pack clearly does not operate as it was intended. I may be able to live with just using the switch on the fan itself to switch from low to high, but O2 Cool's manufacturer needs to address this issue and hopefully the vendor who sold this poorly executed great idea to me reads this updated review and considers testing a replacement before sending it to me.
What a joke!
The battery pack should take 8 D cell batteries and allow the fan to be operated by sticking the 12V plug into it, but mine did not work. The batteries were aligned according to the markings and the batteries were brand new, but no matter what setting for the dial I tried, or any fudging, shaking, taking apart and re-assembling, the fan would not come on. Because 8 D cell batteries are not very cheap, I will be using it with a rechargeable 12V power supply anyway, so I just threw the battery pack in the trash and kept the fan.
