Portability is something that more and more people are starting to value in air conditioners. After all, on a hot summer's day, camping can be really unpleasant. The air is often humid, thick, and, most of all, hot. If you are after a tent AC that will solve your problems, take a look at this LifeSmart Indoor/Outdoor Cooler.

Product overview

The first thing that will draw your attention to this unit will undoubtedly be the way that it looks. Uniquely shaped, it's very compact and will not take up much space. It will do the job whether you're in a tent, at home, or at your desk. The coloring is also exceedingly neutral—an elegant mix of matte greys.

While we're discussing the looks, it's worth mentioning that this air conditioner does not have fan blades and it is also vent-free. This means that it should be safe to use even around small children. Of course, remember to follow the manual and the safety measures that it calls for.

  • Indoor/outdoor use
  • No Assembly required

As said, this is an indoor/outdoor single port air cooler. While we do recommend it as your tent AC of choice, there are so many more ways for you to use this unit once you purchase it.

Due to its portable size and unobtrusive design, this is the perfect pick for a desk cooler for your office. It can also be used in many other rooms in the house, including the bedroom. As it's so easy to carry, you can just use it as a replacement air conditioner and carry it between rooms as needed.

The manufacturer particularly recommends this to be used in smaller spaces. This further confirms that you can feel safe using it even on camping trips, as that is one of the things it was designed for.

If you're traveling, you can always take this with you. This unit can safely be used in tents, RVs, campers, but also outside: on the beach, in a park, or at a picnic. Your imagination is pretty much the limit here, as you will have no trouble bringing your AC unit wherever you like.

Energy-efficient and powerful

This LifeSmart product provides high-quality cooling that will keep you comfortable even in the middle of summer. As it's quite small, it doesn't cover an extremely large area, but you will be surprised by how much it does cover, given its size.

You can easily expect this port space cooler to provide 350 CFM of airflow for cooling up to 250 square feet. This applies to all kinds of spaces. Even if you use it as your only AC at home, it will still provide great results—as long as your room is not overly huge.

For extra comfort, this AC unit has 3 fan speeds. Whether you just need a little cooling or you're really overheating, you can adjust it to your needs. The speeds are extremely easy to switch between, and the whole unit is simple to use.

It's also very efficient. You won't need to tend to it much, as the 1-gallon reservoir provides up to 14 hours of cooling comfort. You will be happy to know that this air cooler is energy-efficient too. The reason for that is that it runs on only 12 volts of electricity.

With so little energy spent, you can expect lower power bills than you would experience with a larger, non-portable unit. The power bills are definitely not the only perk here—using less electricity is great for the environment.

This LifeSmart AC unit is especially recommended to be used in a dry climate for the greatest of results.
