    I'm looking to buy a fan, like a case fan, but it is powered by a USB.

    None of them crappy laptop cooler things, I need a USB powered fan.

    I've tried looking on eBay, but all you get are laptop coolers or flimsy things that provide less cool air then my radiator.

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    What is the fan going to be cooling?

    I have some other equipment that over heats and needs a fan of this size, it has a USB port on it. It's not for my CPU or case of my PC.

    Yes like that but $25 is way too much for a fan!

    I suppose you could wire up your own...pull 5V - and + from the USB male leads and hook them up to the - and + wires on your fan...

    I could, when you mean hook, how exactly? Like curl them over each other?

    Which USB head would I need?
