  1. Joseph Roofe

    Love it, works great

  2. Martin Dotterer

    I like this item because it’s an instant cool me down! Very easy to use. I place it 5 ft, away from me and I’m so comfortable. The fan starts to blow hot air. But this item does not. Just have an extra filter on hand. Keep it in the freezer. The cool air last 10 to 12 hours. I just can’t ask for more than that in a compact item such as this. I purchased mine from Walmart. But Amazon has the best price. I forgot to check Amazon first.

    It always lowers immediate air temperature five degrees, sometimes up to ten degrees. —- Run on high and keep water tank full for 15 minutes until filter is saturated. I used an ice slush but found it wasn’t necessary. I keep a pitcher near by and fill tank with room temperature water. Freezing isn’t necessary and too much work. Yes, gets leaky but a tray underneath works. Mine has USB with regular plug. When placed a foot from my chair or bed, on tray that I swivel for direction, it gives me a great cool space. —— I wish reviewers that don’t understand how to use it could be noted and corrected. —- Oops. My legs are getting too cold. —-

  4. Sylvia Oliver Padgett

    I loved this product! It really does work! Now if you are wanting it to cool off a whole room …. that is not gonna happen but if placed by a bed in a hot as hell room it will at least get you comfortable.’ Maybe one on each side of the bed will work well!

  5. Nathan

    Works just as advertised. I soaked the filter in water and put it in the freezer. I also put ice in the container.

  6. Ab Johnson

    I got the sample today, thanks for your help and fast response.

  7. godunalimgerei

    Highly recommend!!!
    Cool enough for me small office.

  8. lyubyatin

    I searched this cooler for long times..
    Lucky me!! I got one from your website!!

  9. Elena Arango

    I have mixing feelings about this, it does the job perfectly but it is cheaply made!
    So for the price it is good buy but it is made of easily breakable plastic.

  10. Kelly Kohl

    Easy to set up and use. Wonderful for small space

  11. Mary Scott

    Love it!! Use it to sleep at night and I actually get cold and put it on low setting then I take it to my recording studio

  12. Eucel Moore

    I keep this by my bedside….works wonders for my night time hot flashes! I freeze the filter which makes the air even colder. No complaints from me!

  13. Dean

    It arrived on time and in good condition. It’s basically a fan so there is some noise but that’s expected.

  14. alwise42

    Love it this is the 2nd one that I’ve bought!

  15. PrD020307

    Does what the advertisement said it would do

  16. Logan stanley

    I use this product in my bedroom to save leaving the A/C on and saves on my utility bill. As I live in the desert and must use A/C during the day, this device is perfect at night to cool my sleeping space.

  17. Edison Gurganus

    This mini evaporative cooler gets a lot of mixed reviews, but after personally using it for about a week now, I will say that I think it works very well, for what it is. the arctic air ultra won’t cool down an entire room. it mainly cools down an area about 2-3 feet directly in front of it. the fan is fairly strong I have found, and if you freeze the filter, as it suggests to do in the instructions, it feels like a/c for the first 10-15 minutes or so. after that, the air isn’t a/c cool, but still much colder than the room temperature air around it, at least, here in Southern California where it has been pretty hot at nights in the summer. this thing has kept my side of the bed cool at nights, while not excessively bothering my wife (who likes it warmer) so for me, it has been a life-saver and perfect cooling solution, so to speak. my only real complaint about the arctic air ultra is that I wish the filter was “forever re-usable.” i like buying stuff where you don’t have to buy replacement parts down the line. I am worried that 10 – 20 years from now, they’ll stop selling the replacement filters which will basically make this unit obsolete. other than that, I love me my cold artic air, my little protective zone of coldness thwarting off the surrounding villainous hot air

  18. Dean

    It cools a small area really good. I am happy with it.

  19. Vabjekf

    I live in a very dry climate and so evaporation coolers work optimally here.
    The unit overall seem cheap and i wouldn’t recommend it for a general long term solution to anything. However it does blow noticeably cooler air and you can pick them up all over the place. If your AC is broken and you dont live in a humid area this will help you. Earlier this morning i was in this exact situaton. The AC was broken, i knew it was going to get hot, i was desperately searching on the internet for some solution. I found this at a local store and rushed to find reviews about it. I saw mixed reviews, and wondered if i should buy it. I bought it, and im happy i did. Its better than a fan.

    If you can get it on sale and intend to use distilled water only in it it might have some long term general purpose uses for some people but please understand its basically a glorified fan and bowl of ice water. It does work better than that setup due to the air passing through the little damp evaporator sponge things, and its self contained, but its not a room cooler of any kind. I doubt it could even noticeably cool a closet. Its for blowing on yourself.

  20. Anna

    It’s helpful!! If you need to cool air for you! It’s great choice! I used ice with water put on the top.And after the cooler air come out! Wow.It helps while I work at kitchen.I think I need to buy one more to my kids!

  21. trujillok

    Don’t like that I have to add water every time I want to use it.

  22. Tony Step

    I am so suprise that this website updated fast with latest as seen on tv products!!!!

  23. Joel W.

    Had mine for a year now. I live in Arizona. Very dry here. If you live in a more humid area, do not get this. My problem with this at first was, even on high fan, you can barely feel it. It has to be on a completely flat space. It will leak if it is not. What I ended up doing was filling it 3/4 from the top, then placing about 10-12 ice cubes in it. Because of the fan being so weak, I bought a $5 mini turbo fan and place it in front of it. It works great. Keeps me comfortable all evening. Will not cool the room, but cools my bed area from my torso to my head and I do not have to be right next to it. I can feel the cooler air a few feet away, instead of a few inches.

  24. JanMarie

    I LOVE IT. It’s hot in my bedroom 🥵. I set the device for nightime continuous flow, and it is WONDERFUL…runs consistently cool for 8+ hours. It’s on my nightstand, about 4″ above me (I’m on a low futon) and blows cool air over my mid-body, cooling me perfectly. The ceiling fan and personal air cooler work great together too, with my needing to cover up with a sheet or thin blanket during the night. Before getting the cooler, I was miserable–tossing and turning and not getting a good night’s rest. Now, I’m as happy as can be. I’ve told many people about this little gem… it’s awesome. If you’re thinking about getting one, just do it… you won’t regret it.

  25. Rosa Sanchez

    Overall, its ok! I was expecting a little better quality of product! But i quess it’s ok for the price.

  26. Molley C.

    It is perfect for my kitchen on these hot, humid summer days!

  27. Olivia m

    I gave this a 4 star because it is cold. and the cold lasted all night, but too loud for sleeping – it doesn’t claim to be quiet so I can’t really fault them for that.

  28. Amy Payne

    I had an older unit that had some problems. Called the company and explained I wash physically challenged with heart issues and they were wonderful. Even though it was out of warranty they replaced it with the updated model “Ultra” I was so pleased I ordered two more units for the guest bedroom and kitchen. It does with it says. Most questions can be answered if U read the information. My units blow a cooling air nearly 10 feet away and it sits by my bedside to help me sleep. The little noise output is actually soothing and also helps sleeping. It is so portable, I place it on my desk when working and it makes the area tolerable. I am pleased with this product and recommend it. Believe me, being physically challenged, I have tried may products, and this is one of the few worth the $. If yoyu have complaints then get a full size AC and don’t expect this little bomb to cool a large area. It is easy to operate with very little complicated buttons. The filter is washable. Thanks for this little dynamo.

  29. Clint Davis

    Much of the artic air ultra I’d say is exact. It kinda of swamp drains to cool you but is about twice as effective as the arctic air. Be extremely careful because if you drop it, it may brake. Worth the buy!!

  30. Barbara Finnell

    Works well in my bedroom, just great

  31. Star

    It was a gift they just got today and love it 🙂

  32. CarbonMaster

    Teeny air conditioner
    Soak then freeze filter then use chilled water for the reservoir
    Next thing you know …
    It’s COOL
    Amazing !

  33. ROB

    This thing is the jam! Just plan on using it for yourself inside close to you. I use it at my desk at work pointed right at me. I put ice cubes and water in the top and have the element soaked in water then frozen. I run it for hours.

  34. Lee Ann Nebel

    I bought this product for a good friend of mine and he said “I absolutely love it”. He uses it every night and it cools for about 8 1/2 to 9 hours each time.


    It’s not an air-conditioner but it keeps me cool.

  36. Sue Brim

    This is a very good way to cool down a small area & keeps me cool at night during very hot weather!! It definitely is harder to cool down a larger room & will still need a regular fan with this item when trying to keep a larger room cool!!

  37. Robin W.

    For such a little cooler it works not too bad. My husband doesn’t like air conditioner’s so I have it pointed right at me. Keeps me from overheating.

  38. Tretana

    It’s bright even when the night light is off. It’s loud. It’s not very cold even when I put ice in it and froze the filter.

  39. Shaun Spellman

    The only thing I didn’t care for was the water in the reservoir gets warm quick! I put ice water but still!

  40. Rychewoman

    It was easy to use and kept me cool. It doesn’t cool a really large room though. But using it near by works great! I had to use it when my AC went out. Waited on repair man 3 hours but stayed cool!

  41. Kevin Thomann

    It’s a good product to keep you cool, but you can pick this up $10 cheaper at BJ’s

  42. Darklight.

    Works great when it’s placed close to you. It doesn’t give you that dry dust feeling you get from a regular fan.

  43. Martha Sylvander

    If you’re looking for a product that cools a whole room, this isn’t for you and it’s not what it’s made for. My father refuses to get air conditioning in his living room but this is perfect for him to keep next to his chair while watching tv or reading the paper. Keeps him so cool, he loves it. We just bought the second one since the first died after 2 summers. What do you expect for the price. We will buy another after this one dies, so worth it!

  44. Amy H

    Don’t expect it cool an entire room or anything, but works decidedly better than just a fan. Not noisy at all. Either use ice cubes in the reservoir or freeze the filter for more impressive results.

  45. Reuben Flippo

    I like the artic air found it to be exactly what they said it’s really cold air for my small bed room.

  46. Charles Blasini

    Very hidden treasure. Probably the best investment ive ever made. It recently got a bad review on Household Hacker but i couldn’t disagree more. Works great for dry air and for hot air, making rooms cold for hours in the summer off of only a bottle of water. I would recommend to anyone who’d listen

  47. Robert C Rupp

    Works well

  48. SuperJ6

    Just plugged it in and have been using it for a couple hours now. Amazing!!!! The fan blows very well, even on low. It is a little loud to have right next to you but I have mine a few feet away and it is perfect. I am in a doctor’s office so it actually acts as a sound buffer to the waiting room. I am going to try it with crushed ice tomorrow but I am impressed with just tap water. It is definitely making my space color. So glad I found something that works for me!

  49. Sherry

    I bought this and it works GREAT. It won’t cool your house but a bedroom or other single room? Yes! We’ve recently had a heat wave and I’m am so glad I bought this.

  50. troy allen

    I write this review because I spent a lot of time trying researching these mini swamp coolers. Conclusion is that all are cheaply made but some are better than others. At first I wanted the USB option. So I purchased a DOUHE and a SPANTRON. The Douhe was really pointless. It was quiet, but that was because the fan was extremely weak. Definitely a no. The Spantron had everything going for it (including USB) but its buttons were faulty and unreliable. If they had made it better I would have kept it. I tried the Artic Ultra, despite its overall poor reviews (especially compared with the two mentioned). But it is the best for sure. A little noisier, but that is because the 3 fan settings are actually relevant (they offer meaningful gradations). Also it seems to be supported in some fashion with filters etc. Probably the TV campaign made them up their game in this respect. Perhaps I’ll find out, down the line, whether that will be useful.

  51. John

    My upstairs bedroom gets very hot even with our A/C running. It never seems to cool off like the rest of the house, and my stand up fan just pushes hot air around. I thought that buying this Arctic Air would at least help me while I’m sitting on my bed, working on my laptop, or when I go to sleep, since it is sitting right next to me, and pointed right at me. All the commercials and TV ads show people being “blown away” by it’s efficiency…they are very good actors, because I did not find this to be the case. It’s cool but not as icy as they make it out to be. I even poured ice water over the filter and refrigerated the filter over 12 – 24 hours as suggested. It really doesn’t stay cold more than a couple hours, and certainly not through even 4 – 6 hours of sleep. It honestly wasn’t that much different than my regular fan. I wouldn’t be as disappointed if it costed a little less ($25 instead of almost $40) and I wish the ads weren’t so fake.

  52. Lois Ache

    I was so thrilled to get my Arctic Portable Air Cooler, today, as I am using another kind at present. The other Air Cooler I am using has a very small space to put water in, and does not stay on for more than a short time, so I have to keep adding more water often, plus when it gets overheated, it automatically shuts off, so I have to keep a close eye on keeping it going.

  53. linda larson

    Arctic air it works well for a very small area

  54. Charles Blasini

  55. Robert C Rupp

    Works well.

  56. Eric

    It’s better than First generation version

  57. Nathalie Fiset M.D.

    I live in Florida and try not to use the A/C during the day. I put the unit next to me when I work at the computer and get some cool air.
    They lost a star because it leaks. I put it in a pan and keep using it.
    It does not cool a room, just a couple of feet in front of the unit.
    It also does not last 8 hours. At high setting, it last barely one hour. I use cold water from my fridge to get a cooler breeze.
    All in all, I love my little unit with its flaws. I did not pay 29 or 39$. I find that ovepriced.

  58. Stefany

    This one did not work out at all for me. I followed the directions but it did nothing

  59. natalie

    I use this product in my bedroom to save leaving the A/C on and saves on my utility bill. As I live in the desert and must use A/C during the day, this device is perfect at night to cool my sleeping space.

  60. Sammy Da

    Love this mini air cooler, perfect use for spring to summer time. I can use this both in my room and living room or anywhere I want, easy to carry for traveling as it’s a portable size, this product is one of the most satisfying products I bought for this summer from Amazon. Very compact and very useful.
