Just before I start description my question, I would like to let you know that I am new at this.
I am working on a solar air heater for one of my window. I've been researching and reading up on a lot of things but I am not sure if I understand how this whole thing works.
I have a computer 120mm fan that I want to run on solar power. I recently bought a solar panel thinking it was more than enough to run the fan. As it turns out that it was not putting out enough power. So, here is the specification for my fan.
I would like for someone to point me in the right direction as to what I need to buy in terms of volts and current level or the type of and size of solar panel to run my computer fan with solar panel.
UPDATE: solar panel I purchased as follows: Moultrie 12 Volt Solar Panel
UPDATE I recently purchased a new solar panel 2.5W 12V NOCO BLSOLAR2 Battery Life Black 2.5W Solar Battery Charger and Maintainer. When I connect my CPU fan directly, it fails to run. In fact, there is an indicator light on the Solar panel connector and it came on right away as soon as I opened the solar panel. However, every time I connected my CPU fan to the wire, the indicator light went off. I believe it has built in safety that is preventing the flow of DC power to my CPU fan. I just want your thoughts before I decide to bypass its safety circuits by splicing the wire.
