Description: This is a smaller 50x50x10mm fan. The fan has a DC brushless motor, with an operating voltage of 5V, and is rated at 190mA. Keeping the temperature down in your project can often be a necessity, and this fan can definitely help.

Note: As some of you have noticed, the fans that we are receiving are slightly different from the older model. The new fan has the model number Y-Y50101-15B and is rated for 200mA. We’re working on getting pictures updated and digging up a datasheet. The new fan, however, is nearly identical.

Customer Comments

  • In the datasheet there are two models, ball bearing and sleeve bearing. Which one are you selling here? I’m interested since I’m planning to install it inside a fridge.

  • Can this fan operate in both the directions?

    • Sorry so late, no, any fan I have ever seen only flows in one direction, you can’t reverse the polarity and get it spinning in the other direction.

    • You can just flip it around and it’ll do the same.

  • I was quite impressed when I first powered on of these on. Running off of a 5V supply theses things are very powerful. If you’re looking for a small fan that can move a lot of air this is it!

  • These fans are pretty solid. I’ve been running them at 12v for prototype development. I’m using them along with the mosfet power control kit. Very flexible combo for my project!

  • Just received 2 of these, but it looks like they come from a different supplier and has different specs. Label is red, model is Y-Y50101-15B, label says it is 200mA. 4.7V isn’t enough to start the fan, needs at least 5.0V. Is there an updated datasheet for the new fan?
