Is it possible to use a 12volt computer fan to circulate air in your car?

I would like to wire uone use to run off the 12volt socket in my car. I have tried the small oscillating fans and they don't hold up to the heat where I live.

These work fine and two would be ideal. Make sure you correctly connect them.
Red = 12 volt + and black 12 volt - put a fuse inline to be on thesafe side. Most fans are marked with an arrow showing direction of air flow.

yes those fans would work - not sure how well they'll withstand the heat either though. Make sure to cover them with a mesh. I've been cut pretty bad by accidentally putting a finger in spinning blades.

Should work good if its not to small and if its 12 volt dc, you may need a couple of them.
