Versatile, lightweight, and economical, this evaporative air cooler effortlessly rolls from room to room for use anyplace in the home or office. Unlike a fan that blows hot air and more energy effective than an air conditioner, the appliance uses water to cool a personal space up to 12 degrees lower than the ambient temperature. The air cooler works by endothermic reaction (a reaction that consumes heat). The unit sucks air through a wick completely filled with water; as the air flows through the wick, a lot of of the water evaporates into the air, consuming the heat that was in the air. A cool air stream then gets blown out the front of the unit through oscillating louvers for even distribution.
The appliance may also be applied as just a fan or a humidifier when temperature is not an issue. Easily alter the settings with the included remote control. The unit provides an air flow of 23 feet per second, a water-consumption rate of 0.6 to 0.7 liters per hour, and a 10-liter water-tank capacity. Other details include a nylon and photocatalystic filter, three air speeds, a sleep mode, and a timer that may be set from a half hour to seven-and-a-half hours. Though perfective for use in arid climates, please note that the appliance does not work very efficaciously in areas with high humidity since it utilizes water to cool. The 60-watt air cooler measures 12 by 16 by 25 inches and carries a one-year warranty.

As the air flows through the wick, a heap of of the water evaporates into the air, consuming the heat that was in the air. An air stream is then blown out the front of the unit and is substantially cooler than the current room temperature! This is not an air conditioner and consequently uses much less energy. The unit works well in arid climates; not very effective in areas with high humidity as the unit utilizes water to cool.

First off, this is NOT an air conditioner. If you expect your room to be freezing cold, this is not the product for you. It’s a COOLER, and it does its job very well. It works by evaporating water. Try soaking a T-shirt, wringing it out, and putting it on wet to get the effect. It doesn’t work very well in humid areas, but it works GREAT where the air is dry.
I’m in southern California, where the humidity varies pretty widely. I place the cooler six or eight feet from my chair, and on the hottest days I’m quite comfortable.
* it’s about 1/5 the cost of an air conditioner
* operating expense is a fraction of the cost of air conditioning
* neat features! (timer, sleep function, etc.)
* remote control
* it’s not freezing cold like air conditioning.

Low price, very effective in low humidity. Has a strong fan when not using the cooling feature. Timer works well. Has an oscillating feature, a “sleep” mode and, most importantly: a drain plug, washable filter element and a plastic body that cannot rust like those made of sheet metal or tin.
It’s been in the high 90s to the low 100’s here in the San Fernando Valley in CA with low humidity and it’s kept whatever room it is in cool enough to not have to turn on the AC.
It’s no air conditioner, but it’s a low in cost [to purchase and to run]alternative you could even say was an “eco-friendly” way to stay comfortable in the summer. But then, my friends had to talk me out of buying a wringer washing machine, so my opinion is based on my personal preference for simplicity and old fashioned ways of doing things.
Take my review as you will. It does what it says it will. If you have frequent high humidity, it won’t be effective and the company tells you that so be forewarned. I find it to be a great buy and it runs quietly as well.

This is a FABULOUS product. I based my purchase on the reviews of this item. I had a similar product a few years ago and it doesnt compare to this as well as the other one being almost double this price. The cooler came a day PRIOR to the estimated delivery date.WOW……..I live in Acampo California which is north of Lodi CA and south of Sacramento CA. The degrees outside at 5:40 pm is 93 degrees, the temperature inside of the house is 84 degrees and my bedroom (which is where I have my cooler) is 72 degrees. I use a pitcher of ice water from my fridge to fill it up and ice cubes in the top tray. For those of you that are young or have not had the experience of a “swamp cooler”, they tend to have a musty smell to them. I solved this problem by purchasing a Glade Car oil fragrencer(?). It is intended to clip on the vents of your heating/air conditioning unit. I clip mine on the bottem lever of the cooler on the lowest setting and it gives off a slight fragrance with no musty smell whatsoever. My hats off to the seller, Amazon for carrying the product and the reviews that allowed me to purchase the best product out there. Happy Happy Happy!!!!
