    The Giz Wiz Show 1678, June 8th 2018 Independent Show #161

    The Giz Wiz Show recently started it's13th year or production, and it's fourth year of Independent Production!

    That's thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If it wasn't for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. (As we can say honestly “asking for more Patreon supporters is not to make money”, it helps us lose less money doing The Giz Wiz. Thanks!) 

    And now onto the show! Three gadgets for the warm weather!


    SkyGeniusis one brand of 12V Car Dual Cooling Fan for boats, back seats of cars, golf carts, anyplace some extra cool air is need. Although the description says 360° Rotatable Dual Heads, I find it's more like 180 degrees, but you can flip the fan over in its mounting to blow air in the opposite direction.  It does have 2 adjustable speeds, namely high and low. It's can be held in place with included Velcro Tape. It's described as quiet, and I'd say it's more like 'not that loud or annoying'. It did well on Amazon with 4.2 out of 5 stars from 109 customer reviews. I'm going to use it in the cabin of my small workboat which tends to get very hot in summer. The fan's equipped with a 12 volt cigarette plug for power. The copy for the fan also says: “Remove any smells and defrosts your windshield effectively.” I haven't tried either. When I bought mine it was $19.99, which I thought was a decent price. On 6/7/18 is was only available from 3rd party sellers for $50!!! No way is this worth $50 – BUT I found what looks like the identical fan for $18.90 as of 6/8/18. (Link below.)
