Challenge Air Cooler.
I brought this in the heat of the summer but still find it useful on cooler nights, It's an evaporative cooler this means you fill the unit's tray with water and it uses a rotating cloth pad that goes infront of the fan unit and blows the water/air mix producing a cooler air temperature.
The unit holds 8 litres of water and is supplied with 2 ice packs. You can place these in the freezer cool them and drop them into the tank unit to keep the water at a constant cooler temperature for longer.
The remote control is simple
off / on
Batteries are included in the pack.
The unit has a timer function of 1 , 2 , 4 hrs in any combination.
With a built in Ioniser it purifies the air also through the cloth like filter that you wash by simply taking off the rollers and scrubbing with hot soapy water, I also spray the cloth with dettol to kill any bacteria that i can't see before leaving to dry and placing back inside the main unit.
The water tray is removable and easy to fill , the overall weight of the machine unfilled is 7.5kgs which for me is easy to move around as the unit comes on wheels also.
I have used this machine a lot and seems relatively inexpensive to run electric wise , it's quiet and reliable and cools and keeps my large bedroom cool for around 5 hours a night. I paid £ 44.99 from argos for this neat machine.
Summary: value for money and does a great job
