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

I bought 2 of these for Disney World as I have 2 small children, 2 1/2 and 3 months. I zip tied them to the stroller and it was perfect! Neither one of them got over-heated what-so-ever. We also now use them for the beach and when I walk outside since it's so hot out! I definitely recommend to anyone!! Thinking about buying a 3rd for backup!

Hot flashes go away. Just love this fan! Well made and much more effective than others I have tried. The water cooled air works for my awful hot flashes, not just moving hot air around but blows cool air. Yes! You will like this fan. More expensive but well worth the money because quality of the item is way superior to other fans I've used. I'm very pleased with this fan, it is the only one that actually solved my problem and functions as advertised.

I really like the shape and design of this product. It has a turnable fan that you can adjust to keep it blowing on your face. I also use this to cool my laptop down too, when I'm not at the desk. My laptop can get quite hot when I'm running my video editing programs and I'm not fond of those laptop coolers. They raise the height of the laptop and already I'm too short on my desk. I keep it running atleast 9 hours I day - start it up once I get to my office, and leave it running until I leave. It has been problem free for nearly half a year now.

It would have been perfect if it came in different sizes so I can keep a bigger one for the office, and a smaller one to keep in my purse. I've made this suggestion to the guys who made it.

This is definitely a 5 star item and I recommend this to any office clerk. It's $50, but it also looks great on the desk.
