The plugs are 120V AC (the same as your house) and your battery puts out 12V DC. You would need a inverter to change the 12V DC into 120V AC but you will drain your battery very quickly trying to run any anything but a a small load on 120AC.

I think that was a simple typo, and was supposed to be "have a fun camping experience" .....not "hate a fun camping experience"

Aha! Then my brain can rest!! Was just hoping to run a small fan off the big batter rather than off a bunch of D batteries. Thanks for the help!

Happy, thanks for the heads up. Was just hoping to run a small fan or perhaps charge my phone. But now I will figure another way. At least I can let that frustration go. Thanks again.

I also hate it when my phone thinks it is smarter than me.

And yes, it will be FUN!

I guess your pop up doesn't have a ceiling exhaust fan??
Many of us have maxxair or fantastic or creatabreeze 12v fans in
our roof. Mine is right over the bed and we can have a nice downward
breeze any time. We use it all the time when camping off the grid.

I also have a little table clamp oscillating 2 speed fan that runs off
a cigarette socket 12v. I bought it years ago for tent camping at the
lake. You can still get them and I would not dry camp in summer
without one or the other!

Visit Amazon.com and search 12 volt fan in automotive.

You can see several examples. Walmart probably has them as well
but they're down for site maint and I can't check right at the moment.

Good luck and Happy Camping!
