The Original Patented Handy Cooler, the World's First Hand-held Personal Air Cooler

This is the authentic Handy Cooler, as featured in MIT's exclusive Technology Review magazine. Cool yourself at the flick of a button with the first ever hand-held evaporative cooling fan on the market. Featuring efficient & compact design, precision-fit components, and sturdy construction, the Handy Cooler allows you to enjoy yourself in comfort no matter what temperature conditions you have to deal with.

Precision design for optimized cooling performance you can trust

Years of unique engineering research experience have been spent optimizing the design of the Handy Cooler to deliver cooling performance in a compact, convenient package. Use it at home, at school, in the office, at sporting events, on trips – Handy Cooler can go wherever you need a breeze of cool, refreshing air!

Handy Cooler Evaporative Cooling Technology
Patented air cooling process delivers cool air up to 30°F cooler than ambient environment.
Cools air up to 30F
Quick and easy setup. Wet the cooling filter and you are good to go.
Patented, air cooling technology in a small portable device

Similar to large air cooling units and swamp coolers, the Handy Cooler utilizes the principles of 'evaporative cooling'. To activate the air cooler, you simply need to wet the included cellulose cooling filter and Handy Cooler will do the rest.

The turbine draws air through the moistened filter, directing the cool air onto you. The process transforms uncomfortable hot air into a cool breeze (up to 30°F cooler) that refreshes and satisfies you.

The cooling performance may not be as powerful as compressor-based air conditioners, but if you are looking for a lightweight and portable solution to take around anywhere, evaporative cooling is the only option!

NOTE: Optimum cooling performance achieved under hot and dry environments.

High-quality design in a stylish and functional casing

Special care was taken to ensure that the Handy Cooler design looks as good as it performs. The ergonomic grip is comfortable to use all day in hand-held mode, with a special texture for improved sensation; the padded hand strap keeps the unit secure and prevents slippage. The high-quality plastics used are strong for durability, while maintaining lightweight properties to prevent fatigue. We designed this to encourage you to take Handy Cooler with you wherever you need it – carry it easily in a purse or sports bag while on the go.

Unlike knockoff imitations, Handy Cooler’s precision components ensure proper function. In contrast to the knockoff replicas, our cellulose cooling filter is designed to fit tightly in its casing – without any gaps that may cause air leakage or reduced cooling capability. Our cellulose cooling filters are treated with an anti-bacterial compound to ensure your health when using the device. Filter replacements are shrink wrapped to guarantee freshness and unmatched quality.

This is not a misting fan, neither you nor your clothing will get wet. No pumping is required, Handy Cooler is fully automatic.

User friendly – only seconds needed to begin to enjoy the cooling effects

Handy Cooler is easy to use and specially designed to be ready at a moment's notice to provide you with cool, fresh, and clean air. The humidified airflow is also great for your skin and may be helpful for those who suffer from asthma or chronic breathing ailments.

Handy Cooler – Cools air, cools you, anywhere.

NOTE: Requires water to be added every 1-2 hours. Unit will still operate as a normal fan (without cooling function) without water. Battery duration lasts approximately 4 hours at max power.

The heat this year has been HOT and it's been a great help.
Marian Zades
Instead of spraying out water droplets to cool the air, the handy cooler fan has a wet cooling pad that is like a sponge.

Just bought it in June, it stopped working after about 3 months!

Since there are controversial discussions if the handy cooler REALLY works, here's my video review of my take on this product. Verdict is, the handy cooler does work and it's a nicely implemented product. The weather here at Palm Springs is great for swamp coolers like this and it gives a nice kick if you freeze the filter. (Sorry about the background construction noise and the wind noise from handy cooler!)

I've had the handy cooler for just over a year now and so far I really like it. It's been lying under my bed for the whole winter, but now the heat is back and I've brought it back in action.

What I liked:
- The design. Looks good. Feels good. I like the swivel vent head too.
- Portability. I bring it around to classes, work and around home.
- Performance. Cools like a charm.
- Size and weight.

What I would like to see improved:
- Rechargeable lithium battery option. The unit is not capable of recharging batteries. However, I recommend getting 4 rechargeable batteries, and charge them with battery docks. It'll cost you $40+ but will save you on the long run.
- Longer cooling duration.
- a longer USB cord!

It's a nice little fan with a twist, but be sure to stock up on batteries.

When a friend suggested this product to me, I was a bit hesitant at how well it would work but when I ended up purchasing one and using it for the first time, I was quite SURPRISED! Because I use an AC Adapter (which I *highly* recommend), the airflow was much stronger. The cool air helped lower my body temperature and I felt like I was sitting next to an AC. Now, it doesn't replace an AC but I feel that it is better than a fan! I will also use this to dry my nails because sometimes my nail dryer blows *warm* air on summer.

I'm in the Navy, therefore I sleep in a tiny, tiny, often hot space with no air circulation. I ordered this because there is only so much night-sweat and dude-funk one can take in this sort of environment. It just came in the other day, but it appears sufficient to cool a cramped, curtained, coffin-like enclosure! The noise at high-speed is a total non-issue; trust me, the engines drown it out completely. If you're ordering one of these for your sailor, I recommend the pink one. The guys who've seen it all want one, but nobody is going to steal something in pink.

Honestly, I wish it were less expensive, but the build quality is solid enough that I think it'll survive until I get back, and that's really all that counts.

I was originally looking for a fan or something for the car, to use without the motor running hopefully. The positive reviews caught my attention and I took a chance on it. I'm really glad I did! Works great, no odor from the sponge as some have noted, and on the lowest speed my Sony rechargeable batteries are on about 8+ hours without having needed to recharge yet! It's a little pricey, but with 2 small children I'm glad I got this portable AC. Probably going to order the stroller kit from their website - I can see this thing getting used anytime we're out with the kids.

This IS an air conditioner!! It really COOLS! One suggestion I have for inserting the "filter" is, place it into the slatted cover first and then snap it closed. The other way, I found it pinching the sponge. This way, it is completely enclosed. LOVE IT!

Excellent product. It works well, produces a gentle hum when it's on and is very small. It can easily be placed on your desk without taking up much space or blocking you.

This small quiet fan moves a good amount of air very quietly. Fits into a very small space - unobtrusive.

Yes, this little puppy really does work as advertised. Just wet the sponge, turn the unit on, and point the air stream at your face.

Ahhhhhh...

The Handy Cooler appears to be well built. The fan is very quiet. You can put the unit on a desk or tabletop, and it will blow a nice stream of cool air at you.

I like the way you can rotate the air head ninety degrees, giving you greater flexibility in positioning the unit. I also like the little water bottle they give you, which holds two "recharges". Yes, they have figured out how much water you can add to keep cool without water dribbling from the unit. They figure you can go from thirty minutes to three hours on a "full" sponge, depending on your environment.

I have told the company that makes the Handy Cooler that they need to introduce a shoulder holster, so you can wear it around and use it hands-free. In the meantime, I am going to see if I can rig up some sort of shoulder sling or something that will suit this purpose.

At any rate, if you hate the heat, the Handy Cooler is the real deal -- cool relief to go. HIGHLY recommended.

My only gripe, as another customer commented, is the high UPS shipping charge. A lower-cost USPS shipping option would be welcome...

And yes, I use NiMH rechargeable batteries, and they last for hours on a charge. Ahhhh...
