    12V, 0.10A if that's any help.

    They are 12V fans but Flex runs them on less voltage. Have had 4 fans fail and all of them run fine on full 12V after pulling them out of the radio. Tried lubricating them without much success. Noticed failed fans draw more current than un-used fan so maybe something going bad in the electronics.
    Currently running my 6700 upside down to see if that helps with longevity.

    I have a set of fans I received from Eric still in the box. My 6700 has the new style fans so no longer need these.

    I have four (4) 6500 fans that I purchased via the community a year or so ago before I traded in my 6500 for a 6600. They are immediately available. I think I paid $25 each. Will sell 2 sets of 2 for $55/pair ($25 ea + $5 shipping) to USA. Or make offer. Contact me directly [email protected]

  • my set are sold and shipped.
