How many fires will I get from fresh batteries in my FiAir?

FiAir uses 3 AAA batteries and the number of fires you can get out of them is a moving target since each person will find his or her own way to use it. But that's not all.

You don't really have to run FiAir for a very long time per fire. It may be only a total of 5 minutes for an evening of wood fire. Charcoal fires are harder to figure because people start them in so many ways and other variables, but we figure an average of about 5 minutes per charcoal fire depending on -- well, you'll see the variables below.

A new set of single use (not rechargeable) Alkaline batteries will drive about 50 - 60 minutes of effective use. That estimate is based on a cumulative total of about 5 minutes of FiAir usage per fire and an overnight rest for the batteries to recover. The batteries are working pretty hard to get so much airflow through such a small device.

Your results will vary depending on:

  • how often you use FiAir
  • the type of fuel you're using (Charcoal is far more demanding than wood; briquets more demanding than Natural Wood Lump charcoal)
  • how long you need to keep the fire going
  • what type and amount of food you're cooking
  • outdoor temperature
  • how hard it's raining or snowing

FiAir is fun and very easy to OVER use!

It's kind of like Miles Per Gallon (MPG) in your car.

If you have a heavy foot and peel out from every stop light, your MPG won't be so good. With FiAir, if you have a heavy thumb and want to keep adding air to the fire just for the fun of it, you'll get shorter battery life (and use more fuel). So, take the time to learn how YOU use FiAir for your purposes and adjust accordingly. But, this is a tool meant to add enjoyment to the task of fire making. So - enjoy!
