There is polarity to be dealt with even with AC.

Sir, not to be disrespectful. Please do not experiment, ask first and be careful. Like what speedXL has said, you'll be better of buying a small fan. And the picture I posted, i think is not available in the U.S.

Those Radio Shack fans look like DC fans as well, there is most likely an AC->DC transformer (one of those "wall bricks") that does the conversion.

I got my small AC fan for 350 pesos!!!! divided by 56:1US$=US$ 6.25!!!


No wonder nobody goes to the Radio SHack Stores here!!!
Or maybe Radio SHack gets those Small AC fans here(direct plug) and sell them 200-300% more there.

This should take you directly to their AC fans.
They have AC fans (115 and 220). 120mm and 80mm.
Pretty cheap (80mm I think $3.50)

I've ordered from them... very quick and affordable.

I bought kind of an expensive fan from radioshack. I got ripped off for about twenty bucks, but it is small, brushless, and it puts out an incredible amount of air. Its about four inches by four inches.
