Handycooler Personal Air Conditioner – stay cool on the run


The Handycooler Personal Air Conditioner keeps you cool while you’re outside. It’s an evaporative cooler so all it needs it a bit of water and a climate in which it can evaporate, tropical regions need not apply. Inside is a giant kitchen sponge that you need to keep wet, while a battery powered fan draws air through it and blasts it in your general vicinity. It needs four AA batteries or a USB connection and in seconds you’ll be chillin’ like a villain. Batteries will last around 5 hours. Available from Think Geek for US$39.99.

Suffer no more, ye overheated masses! Take cool air with you with our new Handycooler personal air conditioner! Evaporative cooling is the trick here. Simply drizzle a few ounces of water onto a sponge, and place it in a device a little bigger than a cordless phone, and enjoy cool breezes wherever you go.

  • "Inside is a giant kitchen sponge"

    Sounds like my brother.

    • Any similarities to any person, living or dead, is entirely coincidental and beyond the control of the Red Ferret.

  • This is abosolutly a good item. I should buy it for this hot summer.
