    I recently went to radio shack and got a 12v computer fan a battery pack and a small slide switch. Have it wired and ready to go but when I turned it on, the battery pack heated up and started smoking. It there something I did wrong? The battery pack adds up to 12v (8 x 1.5v AA batteries) and I made sure I made my connections right. Please help. Thanks

    I would check your switch, it sounds like something is shorting out the battery.
