Evapolar claims to be the world’s first personal air conditioner. The small device promises to help cool, humidify, and clean the air around you to create a more comfortable environment. Here’s our review.
What is Evapolar?
Evapolar is a personal air conditioner that creates a perfect microclimate around your body. It optimizes the temperature, humidity, and cleanliness of the air to create a comfortable climate for your body.
Priced at around $180, Evapolar wants to help you cool your own personal space wherever you need it most – like at home or at the office.
The air conditioner is neatly packaged into a small, futuristic-looking frame specifically designed to complement any interior. The top of the device features a small dial and LED screen that displays the temperature and other settings.
Evapolar was launched after it went through a successful $500,000 funding run on IndieGoGo.
How Does Evapolar Work?
Evapolar cools, humidifies, and cleans the air to create your local perfect microclimate.
To cool the air, Evapolar simulates a natural ocean breeze. As the makers of Evapolar explain, the air conditioner “emulates a similar natural air cooling process unlike most air conditioners that simply create a strong flow of cold dry air that may lead to catching a cold.”
The device also humidifies dry air, moistening the air to create a better climate for your skin and hair. Finally, Evapolar purifies the air around you, capturing large particles of dust from the airflow to make it easier for you to breathe.
Basically, it’s an air conditioner, humidifier, and purification system all rolled into one compact design.
By using Evapolar daily, the makers of the air conditioner claim you can cool down yourself, reduce your risk of catching a cold, and improve your productivity.
The unit features “bio-stable construction” that allows for prolonged and painless use. There’s also energy-saving technology that helps you reduce your bills.
How to Use Evapolar
Evapolar is designed for use at the home, office, gym, or wherever else you need a more comfortable space around yourself.
There’s no need to install the device. all you need to do is plug the unit into a wall socket to immediately feel the cooling effects. There are no screws, drills, or heavy lifting required. However, you will need to have a nearby power source. It’s not wireless or battery-powered.
Before using Evapolar, you’ll also need to pour water into the removable container (in order to create humidity). Once you’ve done that, just turn on the power grid, set the desired power, and you’re good to go.
Evapolar is available in two colors: black or white. The company is currently accepting preorders and will start shipping units worldwide after June 1, 2016.
-1 Evapolar (Crystal White or Black Magic): $179 + $30 Worldwide Shipping

The makers of Evapolar claim this is early bird pricing and that the unit’s pricing will go up a certain amount after launch.
