We have 2 of these fans and they work fine. They now have the 12VDC plug. They use less than 1 amp each (around 9Ah each over night). Using 110VAC fans is not going to help your batteries as the inverter uses battery power to convert from 110VAC down to 12VDC, stick with 12VDC fans, batteries will last longer.

Not sure as to what your battery situation is, but if you have 2 batteries the 12Volt fans will not kill the batteries.

X2 on the fans above, although I have the O2 Cool brand.
We used to run them off the 8 D cells, but I just rewired a couple of 12 volt outlets where I needed them (coming off the light wiring) and we now run them off the house batteries. These fans don't have a real strong force, but enough to keep a breeze going. Just be sure you don't plug something with a huge amp draw off your 12 volt outlets. I installed a fuse on them just to be sure.

Don't even THINK of running 110V fans- 12V is the way to go. It always confounds me that people will put an inverter on their 12V system to convert to AC and then plug in a device that you can get a 12V version of. Many 110V appliances actually convert BACK to DC internally too... wasting huge amounts of power converting back and forth.
Get EVERYTHING you can to run native off 12V... lights, fans, everything. If you only have one 12V battery, grab another one and you're set for running your 12V lights and fans without a worry in the world.
