It certainly is if you want to save on the over inflated prices of aircon in the summer months :thumbsup:
#3
doesnt say what BTU rating it is, anyone know?
#4
I think its 10,000 watch this space, while I check..:thumbsup:
#5
It used to have the title: 10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner

If you search '10,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner' it comes up with that exact item, so not definite proof it is 10,000 but it looks that way.

Here is a screen shot of the last price, note the title including (10,000) the higher price, and the same item number/code..

lol po problem. LaoTzu

Thanks for the post cityslicker. Heat and rep about to be added.
I have a similar unit tothis. Its exactly the same shape but the more expensive model which has an external box thingy as opposed to a pipe. They are excellent, bit on the noisy side, I think mine was 16,000 or 17,000 and in my bedroom it would have you shivering if you had it on for too long on the hottest of hot days.

Good find, good price :thumbsup:

Good price for a 'proper' air conditioner.
#10
if your rooms as cold as mine it is

great price, thanks
#12
discontinued?
#13
Voted cold... it's an aircon unit, geddit?
#14
I bought the last one, sorry about that.
#15
Wow that is an amazing price for a 'proper' air-con unit. Payed about 200 for a similar spec. last spring.
#16
May no longer be available on the website.

But check the stores. (forfeiting quidco of course)

Seems as if the website removes the item once the web allocation has sold out.

But there were 9 left in Wimbledon, London for example.
#17
Any owners like to comment on the length of time it takes before the water tank fills up and the air-con cuts out? In my expereince that is the big flaw in these type of air-cons.
#18
These, like most of this size, don't need to have the tank emptied if used in A/C mode. They evaporate the condensation and dump it out of the hot exhaust pipe.

The one I got last year (similar, but not identical) has a drain that is blocked off in A/C mode and only needs draining in de-humidifier mode.

Good price this one.
#19
out of stock now, or im am unable to find it..?
#20
sold out :(

I'll try my local Maplinseses and see whether they have stock.
#21
The one I have takes 3-4 hours to fill up the water tank. Probably a litre an hour comes out of the air at med-full power.

thanks OP. I got mine home. It seems quite good, recommended room size is 18m2 or smaller, max is 24m2. My room is about 12m2 :)

Some more details of it:
originally £230.
Rated 830W power consumption. Cooling capacity 2.4KW (8300BTU)
Its also quite big, and a PITA to carry 300m (on a hill!) to the car by oneself, it wieghs about 30KG.
The exhaust hose is about 300mm long, instructions state not to extend it any further. In my case it means I need to put it right next to the window.
Dehumidifer: 28 liters/24 hours (probably assuming worst case in a very humid room?)


They also have a slightly better one but it is £50 more (£130, reduced from £380). Product code A08GK. Cant find it on the website (discontinued), but it was on the leaflet, showing all the other discontinued stock (there was not much else of any interest) . Looks better and more capacity, however for almost double the price..

However but by altering the product code on the stock finder, you can see where this one is in stock.

Very good, thanx for the update. Mine still says being processed on the website. Cheapest I could find it elsewhere was 150ish so quite a good buy.

Thanx to OP for this. Forgot to say thanx the other day, im sick of work getting in the way of my bargain hunting :-D

As already stated, I have one of the more fancier models which empties itself via the extraction unit which goes outside the buliding, but I did once have a smaller unit, and I thought there were attachments you could buy which would drain the water away for you? Maybe i'm wrong. But also, 4 hours until it needs emptying is not bad. Would you really have gone out somewhere for 4 hours? My experience of these a/c units is you can leave them off when you are out and only need them on for 1 hour max until you are shivering - I know mine is more powerful but my room is medium sized and has 10 computers to compensate.

Hope the people that ordered are happy with the unit when it arrives. I'm not sure, but some of these models come with a handy remote control to save you getting up and down!
They are quite big, quite noisy as said before, the compressor in the base of the unit is very loud (you couldn't sleep with it on easily) however it sounds powerful which is good provided you don't worry too much about your power bills! :-D

Well I dont know what maplin are upto but ive had my email to say the air con was cancelled however theyve disptached the £3 voucher to me via royal mail. Anyone else got his?

I picked up my unit at the store in Glasgow today. They have plenty in stock. It is on now in my bedroom and it is really cool in here now. It is a really good buy for the money.
#28
lol selling AC units, in Glasgow, in the winter... I expect they will have stock for a very long time :)
did you get the more expensive one with the heater? :p

apduk I expect they cancelled it becuase it costs far more than £3 to send a large 30KG object especially through royal mail, and its already heavily reduced...

Hah, no mine did not have a heater it was purely an air conditioner no heating or de-humidifying functions. But I'm sure if you have the money, there is a model out there which will do it :whistling:

Why would I need one with a heater? And actually for your information I got the last one in Glasgow.
