I need a fan for kids school project and wanted to know whether a standard 9V battery would spin fan to generate some wind/air for rocket flames?

Asked by: Mr C More
I use these in helmets like Vader helmets etc for costumes, I use a 9v battery for each fan. Obviously it will run, however if you had a 12v battery, it would run longer. I find a 9v battery is more than enough. If in doubt, you could use a battery box and use AA batteries.
