Two blades only.Go for four blades they push more air.Four blades on Amazon at the moment.£18.35p.Cold.
A 2 blade fan will circulate more air than a 4 blade fan.

I have this model which I paid about £25 for approximately 2 years ago , it works much better than our previous four bladed one
Great device for your stove

Wow - weirdly that made my engineering side of my brain go a bit mental...

A quick bit of research seems to confirm my suspicions - its more about blade size (area) and angle than number of blades; except that more blades might actually produce more drag and therefore cause less air circulation.

Seems that generally its much more about the overall design of the fan than number of blades.

Voted hot as these things are great - almost magical!! No idea on the longevity of these cheaper units - the salesman in a stove shop assured me that any cheap versions of these stove fans would give up and die after a season or two - but then they would say that when trying to push a £200 unit

I went looking as well, it's a bit complex but it seems there is nothing significant either way, otherwise planes would have 42 blades and fly around at Mach 3 With no static loading then I'd lean towards a 2 blade design

I still think these things are stupid, you could run a 12v fan for years on £15.99 worth of electricity and position it where ever you like.
They are maybe more suited to a canal barge that is limited in volume and has offline power considerations?
I'll wait until Greta Thunberg makes them compulsory.
Not a fan of these
These work with a peltier gate sitting between the base & the body. The base draws heat from the stove, & the body (with the fan blowing air past it) is far cooler. Its the difference in heat at each side that makes the peltier generate electricity to power the fan.

So a number of watts are generated & sent to the fan. Depending upon the efficiency of the motor & design of the fan, that number of watts will be changed into rotational movement. To say the number of blades makes a difference is not particularly relevant as its how efficiently the motor/fan pairing works on the delivered watts.

What worries me most is the hanging loop, as it means the base cannot conduct from the heat source to power the fan at its best.

It's not a hanging loop, it's so you can carry it from the stove to the rubbish bin without burning your fingers
Anyone know how high this is?
Thanks

If it helps, i am on season 2 (maybe three i think) when i purchased this from Aldi for 19.99. Still going, no problems.

Although i would recommend people placing this to the rear of the stove and not directly infront of the stove pipe.
I got one of these three years ago from Aldi, still going strong.

You don't want a strong push of the air as it would create a breeze/draught.
