I haven't done it myself, but I think you basically need to find a 12volt DC plug adapter. You know, one of those black box plug ins for cell phone chargers or stuff like that. Make sure its output is DC, and check to see how many amps the fan will take. I guess you'll need a DC adapter that can supply that many amps plus 20% more. Then you simply cut the other end of the DC plug's cord, strip the wires down, do the same with the wires of the fan, and connect them together. Black to black, and red to red, or if both wires in one of them are all black, you'll find out which one is right with up to two tries. :wink:

Just make sure you're properly securing the wire connections, electrical tape and those little plastic covers and whatnot. Its not worth starting a fire. :hehehe:

I've done it. It's real easy. There will be two wires on the fan and two on the AC to DC adapter. Try one combination and if the fan spins in the right direction leave them. If it doesn't move switch the wires. Wrap in electrical tape SEPERATELY and enjoy. Or you could just get a PC power supply and bam problem solved.

I almost mentioned that as well. If you had a lot of fans this would probably be the way to go. I'm not sure when using one of those instead of a DC adapter would become energy-efficient. :shrug:

Of course, I'd have to assume that those of us in Europe could simply use any old power cord. :tongue:

just get a 12v AC Adapter with at least 3 Amps on 12v

Cut the end of it off (the part that was meant to charge a phone or something

Wire the positive to positive and ground to ground and your set

I did this with a crap PC Power supply and a pair of hella loud but good 220 CFM Nidec Fans

Put some carbon filters on them and then dryer sheets over those

I use them when I am smoking somewhere that I dont want it to be noticed like in my room at the parents house or a dorm

they suck up all the smoke and leave the room smelling like laundry
