It’s disgusting outside. There’s really no other word that accurately describes the sweltering heatwave happening across the country right now. The walk from your car to your house is enough to give you pit stains and a sweat mustache. If you wanted to crank up your AC as high as possible, we’d get it.
The thing is, doing so will result in an astronomically high power bill. Instead, keep things cool and affordable with a personal air conditioner. The EvaChill and EvaSMART 2 can both help you survive the insufferable heat — and they both happen to be on sale.
The EvaSMART 2 uses evaporative cooling — just like nature does — to drop the air temperature around you. It’s also small enough to fit practically anywhere (it’s just about 7-by-8 inches), making it perfect for use in your office or at home. You can integrate it with your smart home devices (Alexa, Google Home, etc.) and control it with the touchscreen, app or your voice. In other words, you can chill out quickly without ever leaving the comfort of your couch.
The EvaSMART works double (and triple) duty as a humidifier and air cleaner, giving you the optimal climate wherever you are. Oh, and it only consumes 12.5 watts of power in the process, which will help you cut those AC bills.
Available in white, stormy gray and black, you can get the EvaSMART 2 Smart Personal Air Conditioner for $179.99 right now — down 29% from the original price of $256.
Similar to the EvaSMART, the EvaChill EV-500 uses the natural evaporative cooling process to cool down your personal space. Just fill the water tank and connect it to power — then the cartridge will absorb the water and spread it through the cooling pads while air blows through. You’ll feel the air temperature around you drop immediately.
It may not have a Wi-Fi connection or smart home capability like the EvaSMART, but the EvaChill makes up for it with its portability. It’s just 750 grams and a USB port, meaning this genius device can travel with you. Just be cautious of all the envious eyes watching you.
