If you're a fan of living in a hot muggy swamp, buy this.
On a hot humid day in Sydney, this evaporative cooler only manages a 4 degree C temperature reduction, while of course increasing humidity and propensity to sweat.
Most features are controlled only through the smartphone app which I refuse to install as it requires setting up an account and sending my wi-fi password to an untrusted server. Seems to require expensive filter cartridges which expire and stop the unit from functioning until replacement.
Evaporative coolers simply don't work in humid environments. Results may be better in an area with dry heat where a humidifier would be welcome, but save your money if planning to use them in Australia.
I didn't buy the one I tested, it was thrown out by an unsatisfied neighbour.
