    Can anyone tell me if you can use an Ecofan with a Mr Buddy Big Buddy heater or the medium size also? If so, os there a certain size or brand that is better for this over another??

    I’m not sure you will have the room or a way to stabilize it. Being that the Ecofan works with tempurature

    might make it inconsistent. You could try some vise grips and see if you can attach it safely. Let us know.

    I use mine like this … works great to put a fan on top and to heat up water or some soup if needed 🙂 https://original.newsbreak.com/@trail-medic-1593806/2861706122353-check-out-this-hack

      Which one do you have? I didn’t know about eco fans until last week so still a new concept to me. Found out about mr Buddy’s close to thanksgiving last year. seen 2 blades, 4 blades, 6 blades etc & a double fan one. Different brands and price ranges. So looking to find out what works best.

    There are several youtube videos covering this. From what I’ve seen the biggest problem is not overheating the module that powers the fan. I happen to be playing with a bunch of these modules now for a project of mine.
