    I got a fan for my LG and want to install it. Tried 2 different phone charger cords and one did nothing the other made the fan move a lil bit then stop. Im not ellecrtically inclined,,,, more illiterate in that department. Anyway back to the point. The fan is a 12vDC 0.16A 1.9W Dc Brushless fan. Whatever that means. Heres the thing. I know I can hard wire it into the incubator, but want to be able to turn it off without having to tear the unit apart during lockdown. Would like to just have it on a cord and plug.

    Well,, I figured it out. I will hang on to that fan but busted out my laptop cooling fan and pulled the fans out of that and will hard wire one of those in and have a toggle switch so it can be turned off from the outside. Ive still got a few weeks before I need to have the incubator dialed in so Ill just play with it in the meantime.
