However most purchasers are disappointed. It is possible to design an effective portable evaporative cooler, although the majority of the products on the market don't have a chance of keeping the purchaser cool.


The reasons conventional Portable evaporative cooler performance is rarely satisfactory include:

A lot of the information given by salespeople and even the cooler operating instructions is partially correct but doesn't give the full Story. For more information see Getting the most from your portable evaporative cooler.

In fact in hot dry climates a portable evaporative cooler using my Patent may well outperform a Portable Refrigerative Air Conditioner.
