Imagine being able to create your own microclimate! When we were asked to review the Evapolar personal air cooler, I assumed it would end up at work, comfortably cooling my husband. Poor bastard. It sits, instead, on my nightstand.
Thank Carrier for central air! You know, because Willis Carrier invent… never mind. Anyway, if you have it, you love it. If you don’t (which we didn’t before our new home), you long for it during hot summer months. Or menopause. Or pregnancy. Either way, even with central air, sometimes we struggle with finding the perfect temperature.
I had my doubts about whether Evapolar would work. Mostly because of freon, giant window units, and all that. Would this tiny box really work to cool the air around me enough that I could sleep comfortably?
Our bedroom is upstairs. Heat rises. So, our upstairs us usually about 8 degrees warmer than downstairs. We’re also cheapskates, so we’re stingy with the air conditioning. I’m also turning 40 this year so I’m almost certain that I’m already feeling the effects of menopause. I’m a dang mess.
Evapolar is a personal air cooler, humidifier, and air purification system all rolled into one compact design. It was able to drop the temp of the area around me nearly 10 degrees! That’s a huge difference, especially since I sleep next to a heater box that happens to be my husband.
Using Evapolar Is Simple
There is a small, detachable reservoir on the side so it’s easy to fill with water. Then, just plug it in (wall power or USB), turn it on, and set your desired fan speed. That’s it!
Evapolar is perfect for:
- Bedside use
- Office use
- Cheapskates who won’t turn up the air
- Those who don’t have air conditioning
- Campers or tents
- Pregnant women
- Crappy Menopausal hot flashes
- Sweaty sleepers
- Whoever keeps turning the air down to 60 degrees!!
- That one client who complains that your office is too hot
- The gym
- Hot Australians who want it cold like Russia
- People who just really enjoy watching color changing LCD lights
- and more!
I read some reviews that said it didn’t work. I’m not sure if they just hadn’t figured out how to either add water or plug it in, but for me, it worked. Now, it won’t cool and entire room or house, but it will most efficiently cool an area 2-3 m2.
How it works is beyond my paygrade, but they have a whole page that breaks it down if you really need to know. Maintenance is simple, requiring only a water tank refill cycle about every 4–6 hours (it shuts off automatically at night), and a cartridge replacement every 6–8 months.
Evapolar costs $179.99 and comes in three colors. It also offers different plug options depending on your country. Replacement cartridges cost around $39.99 and will need to be replaced about every 6 months.
