In certain places and situations, it’s usually not possible to enjoy the luxury of cooled air. And while portable air conditioners do exist, they’re usually very bulky and need to use ice or water when being operated.
The Zero Breeze remedies this problem by reducing the size of a portable air conditioner down to just 14 pounds and having it operated using either an outlet or a 40 mAH battery that can be charged in just three to five hours. It has a rotary compression system within that uses an environmentally-friendly coolant that can cool a 50 square foot space down to 44°, perfect for a small home, office, tent, RV, college dorm, or even the beach. (If indoors, a hose can be extended from the device outdoors to expel warm air.)
In addition, the Zero Breeze also includes a bright LED light, a Bluetooth speaker function, and two USB ports to charge devices with. A Zero Breeze can be had for $389 in either blue or orange, but this perk doesn’t come with a battery. Spending $608 adds the battery, although a user’s own can be used instead. Each perk is slated to ship in March 2017 should the Kickstarter campaign raise $100,000 by October 1st, 2016.
The Zero Breeze is much smaller and cheaper than competing portable air conditioners and can also be used outdoors, making it a clear upgrade for anyone looking for one now. In the case that someone needs something a little more permanent yet still cutting-edge in the air conditioning space, check out the Noria instead.
