^^ I got it from Singapore. Also available in duty paid shops.

The torch behind the fan is a 1million candle light search light. Not led. Will post pics tomorrow.

Just got it on hand yesterday. Yet to find out how much useful the 1 million candles are and if they get blown off by the wind! Looks Chinese, but has Russian all over it! And the manual is in proper English (so definitely the manual is not from China!).

Try to get hold of one. Simple!
Do you feel it is effective enough to be used in the cabin?? the throw of the air and its volume?

I generally sleep with the A/C on. Doctor's duty rooms are the saddest. During night duties, me and my friends sleep in the car with the A/C on. Whole night's running of the A/C uses about 1L of diesel. Just make sure to park in an open area and keep your handbrake on.

Just 1 liter of diesel for the whole night with the engine idling and the ac on?? You sure? Which car?
Hariya would consume 1 liter per hour atleast with the ac on.

Common N.D.. dont be a Miser saar..its just 1 ltr of diesel .

If you arent doing these kind of trips where you dont fine decent hotels, i think is better to put a/c on with fresh air intake and sleep peacefully. For 6-8 hrs of idle, with a/c it maybe around 2-3 liters for fatboy.

I sincerely hope and Strongly suggest to please keep the air flow knob to pull in external air. Better yet keep an inch of window open on couple of doors. There are enough horror stories of people passing away in their sleep due to asphyxiation.

1 liter of diesel for the whole night?? Hariya would die of starvation. I can adjust with consumption of around 5 liters of diesel for 8 hours but not more than that and I m sure that based on the best mileage that I have gotten (15.05kmpl), he would consume around 3 liters per hour to the minimum. So a night's sleep means at least 24 liters.

Ford fiesta. The distance to empty reading after 6 hrs of A/c would have reduced by 20-25km. Ok. 2L max. And we always park in the open so touch wood, no horror stories.

Is this small inverter charged from your car's 12V outlet?
