It’s hot out there! Keeping cool this summer is key, but what if you also wanted to purify the air and add moisture too? Previously that would have meant buying three different—often large and expensive—contraptions. Not anymore. Enter the evaSMART 2, a portable all-in-one air conditioner, purifier and humidifier.
You’d think that a machine performing three functions would be an energy sucker. But the brilliance of this design is that it uses just 12.5 watts of power, making it 10 times more efficient than other portable A/Cs and 10 to 20 times more effective than traditional split systems. That means lower energy bills— and extra brownie points from Mother Nature.
This genius machine is designed for personal use; each 1,360-BTU unit covers 33 square feet so it’s great on a desktop at work, on a nightstand for bedtime or in the kitchen while you’re whipping up dinner. Added plus: The special biodegradable purifier filters do not absorb water, so they won’t harbor harmful bacteria. To power up the unit, simply add water and plug it into an outlet, or use your laptop’s USB cable.
The evaSMART 2 also works with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and other smart home devices, so you can adjust your settings (even change the LED color to match your mood or decor!) via voice, app or touch screen and beat the heat without putting down your frozen margarita.
Normally $256, the evaSMART 2 Smart Personal Air Conditioner is on sale today for just $180. That's already a savings of about 30 percent, but factor in the cash you'll be saving on your electric bill, and picking up this portable powerhouse might just be the coolest thing you do all summer.
