Best Off Grid DC powered fan?

12 volt fan hooked up to car battery

We lost power yesterday about an hour before sunset.

It only took a few minutes to hook up what might be the best DC fan money can buy.

I have tried several battery powered fans and this one is in a class by itself. The battery I used was from the old truck we took to the crusher over three years ago. I was surprised it still had enough charge to last all night on low...maybe I could've increased to the next speed without draining the battery.
