    I tried connecting the two wires of an old computer fan to a battery but nothing happened. It was one of those large batteries (like a c or d, idk) and the fan does work. Just wondering if I had done something wrong.

    The computer fan probably operates on 12 vdc but the dry cell battery is only 1.5 volts.
