Desktop Air Conditioner For Work Or Home

Updated on May 25, 2010

Not looking forward to another hot day at your home or office desk? Join the club. So what do you do when your lame boss won't repair the air conditioning unit on the office floor, even though her butt is sitting nice and cool in her private office with a working freestanding air conditioner? Okay, maybe we all haven't had THAT boss, but you get the drift.

A personal desktop air conditioner is the cool way (pun intended) to get a nice breeze while working on last weeks financial reports you skipped out on to go play in the sun. So what are the options when your looking for a cold breeze at your desk? How bout a fancy fan with a frozen water bottle behind it.

Additional Information

This Desktop Air Conditioner takes D batteries and will take most 1 pint sized water bottles so that you can have some waiting in the freezer when the first melts.

This personal air conditioner is not going to cool down an entire office floor, but it will make a cubicle or small personal home office or room much more comfortable for a couple of hours.

Desktop Air Conditioner

The traditional freestanding and window installation air conditioners cost hundreds of dollars. This model, picture right is way more affordable. The difference is this one uses a frozen water bottle (included) to cool the air pushed out through the fan.

Seems pretty lame, but it does actually work well to push a refreshing cool air breeze a few degrees lower then room air temperature directly at you.  The benefit to this portable air conditioner is that its quiet, it doesn't use any chemicals, and you can move it anywhere you want.

Attached is a condensation catch tray so no worries about the condensation dripping all over your work desk.
