An air conditioner right by your side, the Companion Rechargeable Mini Evaporative Cooler is indispensably portable so you can place it in your tent, on a desk or just hold it in your lap on hot summer days.
Simple to use touch button controls with an integrated light operate a two speed adjustable direction fan for air movement, and a cooling function to bring down the temperature, all packed in a compact unit that can go anywhere.
Rechargeable from both 12V DB and 240V AC, the Companion Rechargeable Mini Air Conditioner is a perfect companion for summer camping.
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!
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.
our water container split need new one
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.
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
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.
Can a separate item be purchased that will cut out the Companion when the battery voltage falls below a certain level
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.
I assume, when plugged into a caravan 12v socket the Companion will cut out when the voltage falls below say 10.5?
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.
I assume I can use the Companion - plugged into the caravan 12v socket and also use the battery for part of the night?
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.
How long does the 800ml last and does it have an external water bag like i have seen on other camping air coolers
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 :)
Have lost both power supplies and looking to re-purchase. Thanks
