How noisy is it ?
Obviously a lot cheaper than a portable air con but it does increase humidity in a country where humidity is typically high already. One of the reviewers has used it in combination with a dehumidifier but that’s not realistic as dehumidifiers blow hot air as a by product.

If you read the reviews from low to high, they someone says its noisy on number 1, I guess thats the beginning. The fact that alot say it blows warm air defiantly puts me off.

Yeah, the air that these things put out is only as cool as the water that's in it. And since the fan and whatnot generates heat, it'll eventually have diminishing returns.
Air cooler is useless.don’t waste your money
what you really need is air conditioner.
Not voting either way as I dont know if it's a good price. However for those thinking of a portable air conditioner instead - you also need a kit for the window with most of them and they make about the same amount of noise as a washing machine. Wish we'd bought a fan and put an ice block from the freezer in front of it, or hung wet towels around the house - cheaper and quieter.
If you are looking for a useless thing this would be ideal.

We have 2 portable air conditioners ,yes they are noisy but definitely nothing like a washing machine ,more like a cookers hood fan noise.

the “window kit” is a simple,cheap piece of plastic with a hole that you place in your window frame.

you can also make your own cheaply, using plastic sheets or even cardboard or buy nylon ones off ebay.

You can never compare an air conditioner which actually cools the hot air (like a fridge) to a fan that blows hot air or funny ideas such as ice block or this useless air coolers.

air conditioner is well worth it and I cannot imagine these hot and humid days without one.

Ours is as noisy as a washing machine. We tried cardboard at the window - didnt work well, you need a large sheet of cardboard. Anyway point is that you cant expect it to work out of the box unless you also buy the window kit. Also the machine itself generates heat - best to get a permanent one fixed if you want air conditioning.

Ice block means cooler air is being blown at you. Evaporative cooling helps a little.

Air cooler and diy methods like putting ice block won’t work well in hot and humid weather (which is the case here).the water will vapour and result in even more humidity.
been there done that..

yes the fixed split Air conditioners are THE BEST solution, but they will cost at least a grand including expensive installation.
and many people won’t pay that much specially if they live in rented homes.

thats why the portable air conditioners are still a great option.both my machines were around £200 each and as U said the noise is tolerate able considering the benefit (sucking hot humid air out and blowing nice ice cold air in).
