Buying a wood stove fan for the wall tent. Have been doing a lot of research. What kind would you recommend? And how do you like yours? I ordered a Voda fan. Not much information on it. I do not care. As long as it circulates the heat. I like the idea of no batteries. I also like the idea that it is portable. Was thinking of using a ceramic matt with it. In case the stove gets to hot. Also ordered a magnetic thermometer to keep an eye on the flue temperatures. Any thoughts guys?

I use one of the fans sits on the top of the stove also. Seems to work and doesn't make noise like the fan that is on the stove does so that we never use it.

The motor will eventually die, but you can replace it. It won't be soon if you're only using it for camping.

I don't remember what I used. IIRC, I went to the electronics store and found one. But in winter, I burn wood so it was running all the time for years (during winter).

So for camping only, it should last a very long time.

In my house we have an Enviro 1700. It has a built in fan and I couldn't live without it.

Fancy! Is that by choice, or what grows in your yard?

By choice. Alder burns to fast. Hazlenut trees burn hot. Lots of maple and birch at the farm. Two oak trees that we might mill, And use the scraps for firewood.

I bought one from can tire 10 years ago, sit on top of stove type, burn 3+ cords a year, still working. At the time I thought the $100.00 + price was rediculous, but 10 years later it doesn't sound that bad.

They are so fragile you had better make a padded case for it for transporting. They don't move much air. Hold a piece of flagging tape 3 feet away and it doesn't move.

I can keep it in the box it came in. My fan came yesterday. Now I want to get to the cabin this weekend. Looks like that isn't going to happen with work getting in the way. Snow level last weekend was 400ft above the cabin. Bears are out. Thanks for all the replies.
