Thread: Battery Operated Fog machine

  1. #1

    Default Battery Operated Fog machine

    Hi guys, anywhere i can rent or buy battery operated fog machine? Came across some but they are above $800+!

    I was thinking of this combination:

    Decent power plugged fog machine - Eliminator E 119 Fog Machine (120VAC) E-119 B&H Photo Video

    AND

    Portable power source - Goal0 - Escape Scout 150 Power Pack (220V)


    Is this setup ideal? It's cheaper in a way but is it good enough? Any thoughts?

    Dry ice, water and an old-fashion fan.

    The reason i don't want to use the dry ice method is because of the portability. I have too much to carry and i don't want to burden my hands with extra stuff i need to carry. The fog machine along with the portable power source can fit inside my backpack nicely. I'm doing a half outdoor shoot. Large space. May require large blockage of ice which definitely isn't ideal for me

    I'll pick a day where there is hardly any wind. If there is i'll keep pumping. As i said it's a "half outdoor" shoot. Hard to come by china brands. Believe me i've googled through numerous pages and found nothing. Looks like china don't like fog machines that well..

    I've came across this thing called fog in a can. Any idea how good this is? Fantasy FX Professional Haze in a Can 8oz. aka Fog-in-a-can Diffusion in a Can (Ships By Ground Only) - Filmtools

    I did some research not long ago.

    I did find some pesticide spray thing shaped like a guy that you can put the fog solution into, but after that i stopped my research on it.

    There is another thread about portable fog machines and you posted a picture of the pesticide thing. That could work well but i'm afraid that the machine only detects pesticide solutions and not fog ones.

    This one might work. pour out the pesticide liquid, wash and replace it with fog solutions.

    I am now taking into consideration of doing this method. Cost less than a 100 bucks. Might as well try, if it works then we'll have a real budget fog machine

    Experts in smoke machines (they dont advertise themselves as "specail effects" but are the best) they do a battery opperated machine called the B1 / but also have a Colt range that are portable handheld and dont rely on a power source once heated up. They can run off power for upto 10mins then take only 2 minutes to warm up (charge) then ready to use again.

    Not online. I used to buy from a few stores in China who sell stage equipment. They have everything from disco lights to fog machine to bubble machine..
