This evaporative cooler creates colder surroundings as it humidifies and cleanses the air around you—all in a perfect desk- or nightstand-sized package. The compact unit uses a nano cartridge that blocks dust and even prevents mold and bacteria from building up. The result is clean, fresh coolness circulated just for you.
Evapolar is a personal evaporative cooler that combines the portability of a fan with the cooling power of an air conditioner. And it has the moisture-boosting benefits of a humidifier, too.
The built-in water reservoir saturates a basalt filter (made from igneous rock and glass), creating the cool evaporation. A fan helps circulate that fresh, moist air up to about 45 square feet around you—perfect for a desktop or small room.
Biodegradable basalt is a natural material that filters dust from the air, and it prevents mold and bacteria from growing inside the unit. That makes the cool air cleaner.
Eugene Dubovoy and Vladimir Levitin were looking for a better way to beat the heat at work. They based Evapolar on the same system used in the Russian subway, and gave it a scaled-down, eco-friendly design. You can even charge the device via USB to create the perfect personal climate just about anywhere.
