 Post subject: Reversing the mousefan?
PostPosted: 15.01.2003 00:35 
I need to reverse the direction of the fan, or else it'll be blowing downward. Is there some way I can do this? (don't suggest turning the fan blade around)

hmm... why is it blowing down? You didn't glue the fan base to the top cover of the mouse?

It should be possible to reverse the polarity of the voltage coming to the fan and that would change the rotation direction. Just solder + wire from that fan to ground and ground wire to + on the mouse.

Actually it is not correct in general but maybe those fans are protected against wrong polarity etc. If you have a regular dc motor... like ones that you have inside those small traxx cars, you can switch the polarity and the motor will rotate to a different direction.
