5-Star Customer Review
"Yes, this little puppy really does work as advertised. Just wet the sponge, turn the unit on, and point the air stream at your face.
The Handy Cooler appears to be well built. The fan is very quiet. You can put the unit on a desk or tabletop, and it will blow a nice stream of cool air at you.
I like the way you can rotate the air head ninety degrees, giving you greater flexibility in positioning the unit. I also like the little water bottle they give you, which holds two "recharges". Yes, they have figured out how much water you can add to keep cool without water dribbling from the unit. They figure you can go from thirty minutes to three hours on a "full" sponge, depending on your environment.
I have told the company that makes the Handy Cooler that they need to introduce a shoulder holster, so you can wear it around and use it hands-free. In the meantime, I am going to see if I can rig up some sort of shoulder sling or something that will suit this purpose.
At any rate, if you hate the heat, the Handy Cooler is the real deal -- cool relief to go. HIGHLY recommended.
My only gripe, as another customer commented, is the high UPS shipping charge. A lower-cost USPS shipping option would be welcome...
And yes, I use NiMH rechargeable batteries, and they last for hours on a charge. Ahhhh...
