Description: This DC Blower really moves some air! Pulling about 1Amp @ 12VDC, this blower is rated at 16CFM (although it seems like more to us). We’ve used this blower to build small hovercrafts and to cool off on a hot day, they’re also handy for inflating “transforming” e-textiles garments!

We bought four of these to inflate a couple of Halloween costumes. Two were not powerful enough to keep a costume made from parachute ripstop nylon that measured about 7.5 cubic feet inflated. We tested the costumes with a shop vac, and they inflated just fine, so we thought that 16 cfm would be enough for mobile use. Sadly, not sure they put out that much air.
We will most likely use these for other projects.
I ordered 2 of these blower fans. One worked and the other one didn’t. The one that works does what i need it to do just fine. I guess cheapo’s are hit or miss, but for the price, if you get one that works, you’ve made a great little deal!!! Good luck :)
Sorry to hear you got a bad unit! Please contact techsupport@sparkfun dot com with your order number and they should be able to help you out with a replacement.
I have purchased eight so far and used four of them. I have had no problems with them so far. They are a little too noisy for my main application running on 12 Volts, but are great @ 6 Volts. Since I primarily use 12 volt batteries, I am looking for an affordable way to vary the voltage on them.
