Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to design and construct a exhaust fan with batteries?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
The power requirements for fans is quite high compared with practicle batteries .

For a ventilator fan to run for a significant length of time the battery would need to be big and expensive thus rendering it to be a very poor idea.

So, while it's possible to do it is not a great idea.
Hope this helps.
