Patented, air cooling technology in a small portable deviceSimilar to large air cooling units and swamp coolers, the Handy Cooler utilizes the principles of 'evaporative cooling'. To activate the air cooler, you simply need to wet the included cellulose cooling filter and Handy Cooler will do the rest.
The turbine draws air through the moistened filter, directing the cool air onto you. The process transforms uncomfortable hot air into a cool breeze (up to 30°F cooler) that refreshes and satisfies you.
The cooling performance may not be as powerful as compressor-based air conditioners, but if you are looking for a lightweight and portable solution to take around anywhere, evaporative cooling is the only option!
NOTE: Optimum cooling performance achieved under hot and dry environments.
Let me say WOW! I love this fan. I plugged it in to my computer and used it while sitting on my lap top blogging and I can say this little fan works & when I say works it made my face cold. I have been having 90 degree heat where I live and I only turn my air on to 78 to get the humidity knocked down in my house and all I need to do is plug the fan in and it cools me down. I love how it works by getting the sponge damp. I am going to the drag races in August and can't wait to bring this with me to use while sitting out in the heat. Any one can use this and let me say this does help when you get a hot flash :)
