Air Blower/Fast Fire Starter for Charcoal Grills, Tailgating, Campfires, Fire Pits, Fireplaces, Wood Stoves

We are lucky enough to live in an 1880s cottage in San Francisco, and we have a great wood burning fireplace. Recently I purchased a FiAir battery powered blower. This device has turned out to be quite good at fanning the dying embers into a hot flaming fire again. Using three AAA batteries, it seems to last for a long time, in fact, I have not run the batteries low after at least three dozen extended uses. The only downside it works too well and makes the fire very hot for your hand holding the blower. I have added a hack, the inner cardboard tube center from the paper towel (slips right over the nozzle) to keep my hand farther away from the heat.
