I'm absolutely bookmarking the Aluminet thank you! I think I'm going to try and rig some easy fan set up even if I have to put small ones on the dash to keep it moving toward the back.

Outside temps were fine but I was in and out of the car 50 times trying to find a way to get him cooler.

Any suggestions for battery-operated fans? Hoping to find a rechargable one that's reasonable.

I use the O2 cool, snip the line to the AC adapter, crimp on connectors, and connect to a 12 volt deep cycle battery.. they can be had for a better price when the big box stores doe seasonal changes outs -- I got mine for $5 each and stocked up.

I keep it charged with this..just run a cord out to my car.

I do know some folks who have the Ryobi fans you can get at Home Depot etc. but they have not been as impressed with the output and length of time the battery lasts.

I've been looking for power sources to run crate fans and the power station looked really good(great!) compared to running a marine batter for the same cost.
My husband frequents NAPA and gets wholesale pricing on most everything due to his machine shop business.
So he brought me home this and I'll test it out this weekend:
