At first glance, the Handycooler might look like your average handheld fan, but it actually turns out to be a portable mini air conditioner.

This little device harnesses the power of evaporative cooling to give you air-conditioned bliss anywhere you please. All it needs is a few ounces of water for you to dampen a sponge with, and you're good to go.

Running on a set of 4 x AA batteries (up to 5 hours), the US$39.99 Handycooler can provide you with up to as low as -4 degrees celsius of cool air!

I had read on this small air conditioner units, it surprised the hell out me.

I thought Ipod was the only thing that is getting small, but it seems air conditioner is following be hide.

This is getting crazy for air conditioner!

“The fan draws air over the damp sponge, cooling it by up to 25 degrees Fahrenheit.”

I don’t see how does the air cool to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s so small.

I guesses it doesn’t has the basic components like a regular air conditioner units does.

The disadvantage it take 4 double A batteries, you have to carry water, take it dirty dust and recirculate to your face with cool air.

Ani time2 blackout bisai ni, mun be anak damit, mun sorang hehe, mahalnye

GOL,they don't shrink the aircond as you might have thought. They change the design but still keeping the same concept, but more basic.
As you could see, they use wet sponge - meaning they rely on the water temperature and rate of evaporation that removes the heat.
