Dont waster your time For those of you who are looking at the price of this item and are assuming it is a great price for what this item states it can do, dont fool yourself. I purchased this item and was very excited being that it was my first air cooler and was happy to finally have something to cool my room I was very disappointed. First I tried it with just the ice water. Then I tried it with the cold packs on top but inste4ad it still kept shotting out this funny smelling air. I left to the store and closed the window and the door in my room and when I came back my room felt like there was this icky feel to the air. I was very unssatisfied. Please dont waste your time....more info
Humidity Level Shoots Way Up I bought a hydrometer (a device that measures humidity) before I bought the Sunpentown Air Cooler. I did this to make sure the humidity level wasn't above 60% in my room. We actually have Central Air Conditioning here. But my room is in the front of the house where a lot of light gets in, and it is usually the hottest room in the summer. That said, the hydrometer read 35 degrees F when we had the A/C on. At night when the Central Air goes on and off, it would climb up to about 42 degrees in my room. So there was no problem on my end. I made sure of that before purchasing this.
When the Sunpentown Air Cooler arrived I filled it up with water and ice just like it said to. Hours later I noticed that more than half of the water I filled it with was gone! How could that be? Where did it all go? Well, I looked underneath and noticed that there is a little knob that opens. It was leaking. No where in the directions does it even indicate there is a knob underneath. This wasn't my fault it was leaking anyway. It was a defect. Because no matter how tight I made it water still leaked out. This could have caused water damage having so many gallons of water leak out.
Anyway, I still gave it a try even though I knew there was a slight leak now after I tightened the knob as much as possible. What I found was was that this actually made the humidity level rise by about 18%. I'm not kidding. My room is a 12x12 foot square.
I'm sure this unit is great for air purification or as a humidifier. But I don't see it being much use to cool a room up. It seems like a gimmick to me. To give them credit, I did get my money back and the shipping I paid. They didn't refund me for sending it back however. ...more info
Just a little better than a small personal fan This is a fairly large unit, not that heavy, but takes a bit of space. The fan power is less than most personal portable fans, the small ones that oscillate. The distance is barely 5ft and does not cool the air without the recommended 2/3 ICE filled. I should of looked into other models, but my 20.00 walmart fan keeps the room cooler than this....more info
Works well so far I ordered this at the end of the first week of the July heat wave. Just got here and it has been running for almost an hour in a 30 x 40 garage where I work. It's not a humid heat here in the Santa Monica mountains and, yes, it does work as advertised, though I need to keep the air flow directly on me in a room this size. Remember we're talking about 95 degree ambient temperature outside, so I'm thinking I'm at 85 inside the garage with this thing, but it sure feels good.
Ordinarily, this garage is an oven by this time of day. The unit has been running for just a short while. The room is undeniably cooler already. In this heat the ice melts very fast but the unit has a tray on top for ice packs. I put three of them in there and it seems to be a very important reason why the unit is working. I suppose I should be prepared to refill the unit with more ice as the day progresses and the water tank evaporates.
I'll give this a day or two. If it continues to work I'll probably buy another for the house.
Works right out of the box. Give it four stars instead of five because it doesn't handle even more ice. Otherwise, I'd recommend it. ...more info
still sweating granted... my bedroom is the hottest and least ventilated in the house and the humidity can be bad at times, but this device definitely does not cool the (rather small) space 12 degrees. three to five degrees would be a better estimate. in retrospect, i'd have rather spent more on a real portable ac unit, which i now will probably purchase anyway.
ps: the water indicator is definitely difficult to read and a flashlight is typically necessary. ...more info
