To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've tried everything to make this worth it. I used large ice cubes, crushed ice, froze the filter but it still puts out semi cold air, about as cool as a regular tiny fan but costs 3 times the price. I realize it's small, and is not supposed to cool an entire room but it doesn't even blow out significantly cool air or blow out very forceful - even on high. Just get a tiny little a fan, sip ice water and sit next to a color changing nightlight instead. I'm not sure how or why this product has so many positive reviews, either they are paid or these satisfied customers forgot to include that this air conditioner is really a play toy for Barbie's Dreamhouse.
I would invite people who write excellent reviews of this product to load it up with clean water, turn it on, and set it next to a regular fan. The difference is measurable but negligible. When you freeze the pads and put ice in the water the difference is somewhat less negligible. On a very hot day, this effect lasts roughly an hour.
The fan in the unit is the cheapest part of the design. In my case, it's out of balance and makes the table shake a little. I expect it to fall apart any day now.
Then there's the noise itself. Mine is so loud I can't sleep with it on, which is fine: I use a fan, which works just as well.
It will not - Read this: NOT - cool a small room. It will cool a part of a small room, maybe the part you're sitting in. It is not "air conditioning": it is a crappy little plastic swamp cooler, and as the design execution is absolutely abysmal that its performance is equally abysmal.
Not worth $15, much less this panic price they sent up to accommodate a particularly hot summer.
TL;DR: crappy components, crappy design. Not worth it IMO.
I received this product yesterday 6/8/21 and was only on for 10 minutes! Even on low it's so loud, on high sounds like a jet getting ready to take off! I'm extremely disappointed, I only bought for use on my night stand and there's NO WAY I would've got any rest.. also it really didn't get that cool & I put the filter under running water and into the freezer AND I put ice cubes in with the water in tiny tank,,, IMO it's a total waste of $40!! And NO option to turn the LED lights off & the machine itself is so tiny... Epic fail!!!!
This product is not good. To begin with, the filter drawer sticks. You literally have to pull from the top to get it open. The unit at it's lowest setting is very loud and the worse is that the water leaks out everywhere. So it does meet the cooling capacity as described. I thought maybe it was just first day usage, but after a week I'm boxing it up to be returned never to visit this brand again. Consumers these little units are very popular, but this one is just not worth the 40 dollars I paid for it. Does not recommend it at this time until they fix all the defects with it. I You-Tubed it and the defects were there in the testing. Not good at all. The man demonstrating it said you could get up to 6 hours of chilled air and that's not true. The water you can clearly see running from the bottom of unit. Only good for a nightlight. Consumers again, I'm sure there are other brands that work well, this isn't one of them.
I think this is a good idea, at least on paper. Have a fan blow over cold water and it should cool you down. The problem is that this device is way too small to have any meaningful impact even on a desk. The tiny and whiny little fan blows very little air over far too little ice water. If this were scaled up 5 or 10 times in size, I could see it being potentially of value. But not in this form.
