Biggest waste of money!!

I bought this Evap cooler thinking it would be better than a pedestal fan. The main reason was for my 11 month old to take a nap and take the edge off the heat. Used it on a 25c degree day and a 40c day and both times absolutely useless!! There is no point in wasting space with this item. I can't believe I paid $120 for this! Very upset customer!

Response from Snowys Jan 11 2017

Sorry to hear this has not lived up to your expectations Jodie. We have had mixed feedback on this evaporative cooler, mostly good, often the negatives are from users expecting it to cool a large area. With regards to it performing better than a pedestal fan, the air to be coming from the unit should be cooler, but it won't move as much air simply because of the smaller comparative size. That being said, we want our customers to be happy with every purchase, and we value all feedback on the products we choose to sell. Please get in touch so we can make things right for you ~ Ben.

can you buy replacement water containers and how much thank you1 answers

our water container split need new one

- Sailors Gully, Bendigo(4 days ago)

G'day Les, 

Good news is that water container is available as a spare part, but as Companion have just updated this Cooler we'll need to know which model you have.

Give our customer support team a call on 1300 914 007, and we'll be able to sort something out for you.

Extra 6v batteries1 answers

Thanks for previous replies. Can you tell me please, do you sell extra 6v batteries for the Companion. Does the one battery have "at least" 6 hours on low speed or is that maybe a little overstated as I have read. Thanks

- Chelsea, Victoria(3 weeks ago)

We don't sorry Terry, they are not readily available 'off the shelf'. However, the battery is removable, so we would be able to get one as a spare part, or it is highly likely that somewhere like Battery World would have a suitable replacement. As for the run time, this is an average and can vary slightly. We have not tested the full run time, so if you have read experiences by others then this is probably a good indication. We are working on getting new images from our supplier and will have these uploaded as soon as we can.

Cut out for Companion1 answers

Can a separate item be purchased that will cut out the Companion when the battery voltage falls below a certain level

- Chelsea, Victoria(3 weeks ago)

Nothing I am aware of sorry Terry, at least not in our range anyway. It's probably a question for an auto electrician, sorry I could not be of much help.

Will Companion cut out at certain voltage level?1 answers

I assume, when plugged into a caravan 12v socket the Companion will cut out when the voltage falls below say 10.5?

- Chelsea, Victoria(3 weeks ago)

It doesn't have a cutout to save your battery sorry Terry, you'd be best using it on an auxiliary battery, or monitoring your battery during use. To give you some figures to work with, the built-in 6V battery is rated at 4.5Ah, which gives about 4 hours of run time on high. A larger battery would give a much longer run time.

Using in Caravan all night - say 10 hours1 answers

I assume I can use the Companion - plugged into the caravan 12v socket and also use the battery for part of the night?

- Chelsea, Victoria(3 weeks ago)

If the internal battery runs flat, you can run the Evaporative Cooler from a 12V cigarette socket or 240V outlet Terry, the only concern is that it will continue to drain the battery. It would depend on the size of your battery as to how long it would run. The built-in battery is 6V, 4.5ah, so a 12V car battery would provide a much longer run time. Just a heads up on this too, Companion have updated this Evaporative cooler, we have the current model in stock, but the images are still the old model, we are currently chasing up new images for this.

water filling 1 answers

How long does the 800ml last and does it have an external water bag like i have seen on other camping air coolers

- Gold Coast (3 months ago)

Hi Julieann, this cooler uses 50ml of water per hour, so the 800ml tank will last for 16 hours run time. The water tank is in the bottom of the unit, you can see it in the picture there :)

Can you supply both power supplies for this unit?1 answers

Have lost both power supplies and looking to re-purchase. Thanks

- Greenwith(8 months ago)
G'day Patrick - You certainly can buy replacement power supplies. We don't have them in stock, but can order them in from Companion. The codes are COMP378-01S and COMP378-02S for the AC and DC respectively. If you wish for us to order them in for you, do give us a bell on 1300 914 007 or send an email to, and we'll go about it. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

What volume of space can this effectively cool?1 answers

- WOLLONGONG, NSW(11 months ago)
Great question Alicia. Companion list the fan air volume at 60m3/hour. In our experience, this is suitable to cool a 3-4 person tent, however there are a number of variables that can affect the effectiveness of this cooler. Like any airconditioner, it will not work as well on a really hot day. If it's 40 degrees out and your tent is sitting in the full sun then you'll find that it may cool your tent by a few degrees but probably not to a comfortable temperature, much like the air conditioner in my car when it's been parked in the sun all day on those really hot days! On an average summer day, with your 3-4 person tent in a shaded area, this cooler will take the edge off the heat and make it more comfortable. As there are so many variables there is no hard and fast answer, but this should give you an idea. If you'd like to discuss this in further detail, please give us a call on 1300 914 007.

Can you use this whilst the unit is recharging1 answers

- MURRAY BRIDGE, SA(1 year ago)
Hi Pam, whilst plugged in the unit will operate, but the battery will not charge until both fan and light are turned off.
