Fan Unit/Dual Fan Unit
Cost: $75.00 US/each to $295.00 US/each
To improve performer comfort and extend costumes performance times. The fan is permanently installed in the head of the costume.
Charging the Battery
Remove the battery from the costume and charge as soon as possible after each use. Connect the battery cord to the charger cord, matching the colour coded connectors. Plug the charger into a wall outlet. Charge for a minimum of 6 hours, and up to 12 hours. Do not charge the battery longer than 12 hours. The battery can be destroyed from overcharging.
A fully charged battery should last up to 4 hours. Do not store the battery inside of the costume. Make sure all of the components are kept together after your performance. Storing the fan components in a small bag will ensure the pieces do not get lost.
If the fan unit is not being used for an extended length of time, charge the battery every 6 months and store it in a cool place.
Depending on the size of your costume, the battery will be either be placed in a foam box inside of the head, or in a pouch worn around your waist, underneath the costume.
Insert the fully charged battery into the battery box inside of the head. Connect the battery cord to the fan cord. Turn on the fan using the switch.
Battery Pouch on Waist
If your head is small, you will probably have a battery pouch to hold your battery. Strap the battery pouch around your waist with the fully charged battery inside of it. Run the long cord up the inside of the costume so that it sticks out at your neck. Attach the battery cord from the waist pouch to the fan cord in the head. Turn on the fan using the switch.
