Air cooler is not an air conditioner and therefore uses much less energy. Air cooler works well in dry climates; not very effective in areas with high humidity as the unit utilizes water to cool. Leave window/door open to limit the rise of humidity and for better air ventilation in the room. Add as much ice as possible and set unit closer for best effect.
From the Manufacturer
SPT SF-610 Evaporative Air Cooler with Ionizer
Versatile, lightweight and economical
The evaporative Cooler easily rolls from room to room for use anywhere in your house or office. This Air Cooler shoots a stream of air with oscillating louvers, to evenly distribute refreshing cool air. The remote control allows you to easily change settings.
Best used in dry climates or open spaces (works by endothermic reaction)
This evaporative Air Cooler sucks air through a wick saturated with water. As the air flows through the wick, some of the water evaporates into the air, consuming the heat that was in the air. An air stream is then blown out the front of the unit and is considerably cooler than the current room temperature! This is not an air conditioner and therefore uses much less energy.
No compressor inside (not an air conditioner)
This unit is not an air conditioner and does not have a compressor inside - air coolers will not lower a room's ambient temperature. Air coolers are designed for spot cooling. This unit is best used in dry climates or open spaces. Leave window/door open to limit the rise of humidity and for better air ventilation in the room. Add as much ice as possible and set unit next to you for best effect.

Top Customer Reviews
* You put water and/or ice in the top of the unit; you cannot put water where the ice is and vice-versa. The area where you pour water into is about 3x2 inches in size (yes, really!), while the area for ice is about 7x3 inches. You literally need a funnel or a small plastic tube to fill the unit up with water (see below). But it gets worse...
* Easily the biggest flaw: the water/melted ice goes down a tube and literally into the casing of the unit! There is no water tank, or centralized hold for liquids. The entire bottom of the unit is the "tank", if you can even call it that.
* The two cooling packs provided contain some sort of cheap coolant liquid inside of them -- they do cool quite well, but here's the problem: they're physically too large. The cooling packs are dropped into the bottom of the casing (where the water is), right into the water. They don't mount inside anywhere.
* The "door" for the cooling packs is too small for my hand (and I have small hands), which makes removing the cooling packs impossible. It took me a good 5 minutes using a pair of plastic pliers to grab a pack and remove it. The door is held shut with magnets, which is admittedly nice. But the door empties right into the water "tank", which means you might as well fill it up from the side and not the top! What were they thinking when they engineered this thing?!
* Water pump is a pump intended for aquariums.Read more ›
Since this cooler works by the phase-change of water into gas, you'll need to open your windows and let the air circulate so the humidity doesn't build up to the point where you're in a sauna and start to sweat like--um--someone who's in a sauna.
It won't cool down an entire room, but if you'll be typing away on your computer like I am, you'll be sitting in one place. So sit next to the cooling breeze with an iced tea, and you'll be happy as a clam.
Here's some numbers for how it works, and what's reasonable to expect from this cooler . . .
Everyone knows that to generate steam, you apply lots of heat to water. You'll be happy to learn that if you dip a towel in water and hang it to dry, the liquid water changes to vapor, and in the process absorbs heat. How much heat, you ask?
Water weighs about 8.3 lbs per gallon. To turn one lb of water to vapor, you need to apply about 910 BTU of heat. Multiply 910 times 8.3 and you get 7553 BTU. So, if you can entice a swamp cooler to vaporize one gallon of water in one hour, it will (about) cool as much as a regular window unit rated at 7500 BTU.
However, this particular machine professes to vaporize about half a liter of water (about one pint) in an hour. One pint is 1/8 of a gallon, which is about one lb of water, so you can assume this machine will cool at the rate of 900 BTU per hour, which is about 20% of what a small window air conditioner will provide.Read more ›
It comes with ice packs, but using these doesn't make any difference either, and good luck getting them back out after using them - the hole you have to drop them in is the same size as the ice pack, so once you get your hand in there and get a grip on them, you can't get your hand back out.
Update: Died after less that two years.
