I picked up a couple of these trendy USB powered fans at Jaycar yesterday and I am very impressed with their energy efficiency particularly when you realise how much air they move. I have mounted one each side of the bed and they seem very quiet. Tonight they will be put to the test. Our Jayco caravan has 12v reading lights above the bed so it was relatively easy to install a couple of USB sockets in the overhead cupboard. These sockets will eventually be fitted adjacent to the lights but the ones I have are fitted with bright led lights which is not ideal.
An added bonus is the led display on the fan blades. There is an analogue clock and via an app on your smart phone and a bluetooth connection you can have a series of custom messages displayed. Not all that practical - But it is a bit of fun ;) :)

We use this set up on hot nights. Good airflow and quiet during the night. Battery lasts a week of running all night. Attached to the wall by velcro.
Cheers

However Chris, we have found that the nights over the last 10 days have been pleasantly cool. We were at Weedons when the first big chill arrived, dropping the temp from 33 down to 9 overnight. Since then the day time temps have risen somewhat but the night still drops off. Haven't got past Timaru yet.
Can recommend Seadown Old School POP between Temuka and Timaru.
Plenty of room for the 3 of you, toilets, shower and washing machine.

Thanks John. I look forward to some cooler evenings. The Seadown POP sounds perfect for us.

Cheers
