Slowing a noisy handheld fan? Answered
I am trying to slow a battery-powered (two AA batteries) handheld fan. It's obnoxiously loud for my project, but slowing it to about half speed will help cut the noise. I think running a resistor somewhere in the circuit will do it (planning to lengthen the wires anyway, so physically adding in isn't the issue,) but frankly there's a reason I'm in art instead of engineering. I've looked at the online calculators, but they want the amperage of the motor, which I don't know.
What kind of resistor do I need? Or is there another way to slow or quiet it down?
