The Arctos Portable AC is a small personal cooling humidifier that cools the air as it draws in the hot, dry room air. According to the official website, the small but mighty unit is quick to begin cooling, making the user’s personal space more comfortable.
The advantage of using a portable AC unit is that the Arctos doesn’t use a conventional HVAC system; instead it uses a mix of water and evaporation to hydrate and cool the air, thus making it more comfortable in hot weather.
While it can work as a fan, it operates primarily as an air cooler and a humidifier. Instead of just using water, the Arctos includes an ice tray that keeps the cool air blasting.
