Air coolers

Anyone got one??

Wife still training in garage, now she’s running in there too it ain’t pleasant.

Already got 3 decent fans and not sure got the room or logistics for an AC unit (even portable).

So these air coolers popped up whilst browsing. A fan with basically a water (and ice) container to create some cooling.

Halfway house between a fan and AC, or just Amazon that? Reviews all seem fairly positive.

We’ve got one. It’s awful as a cooler. My wife’s idea…she was pissed off it didn’t live up to the hollow accolades on the website…

That said, when our boiler broke (twice) it was a cracking heater!!

Should add- it’s not that exact one, cost about £70-80.

Yeah I thought they might be too good to be true.
She’ll just have to suffer :grimacing:

I bought off ebay a portable ac in December. Noone else bid :grin:


We have a couple like this which i was massively sceptical of but seem to work… they have a water tank & small ultrasonic thing that vaprorises the water into the air flow.
Work best when blowing directly onto you but do a surprising job.

Had one years ago, dont remember it being particularly good. Also with those you have to look after them otherwise you get mould and stuff building up

We’ve got one and it does provide some cooling, but it’s definitely closer to a fan than a full-on A/C unit. It takes the edge off the heat, but when we’ve had the really hot weather for the last couple of summers it’s barely made a dent in the heat.

It’s going to raise the humidity in whatever room you’re using it in, so maybe not ideal for an area you’re exercising in?
