4pin molex PC fan

Hi forum!

My friend has a PC fan that she would like to power through a wall outlet(not for a PC but for other purposes). I've found a few adapters online, but I'm not sure about the voltage. I have no clue how any of that works.

The fan she has is a 4pin molex that says the "started voltage" is 6V/7V Max.

Would the following adapter work, or fry it, and why?

If you need any more details, just ask. Thanks so much!

  1. I don't see why it wouldn't. Worst case scenario it just simply won't turn on.
    If you read the feedback it appears alot of people are using this particular product to do the very same thing you are wanting to do.

    yeah it would work but why not just get an AC powered fan in the size you want for the same price?

  3. It would work better if it was an AC powered one because power is lost changing from AC to DC. That tacks right on to her power bills.

    Yay, thanks for finding this! Finding a small enough fan was her problem to begin with, I think.
