Coolala Solar-Powered Portable Air Conditioner

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-09-21

Enjoy a cool breeze indoors and outdoors with the Coolala Solar-Powered Portable Air Conditioner. Whereas fans just blow hot air around, the Coolala offers a real AC experience. Thanks to a tiny but powerful air compressor, it cools up to 150 square feet of space. This makes it ideal for camping, tailgate parties, road trips, and more. Weighing in at only seven pounds, it’s easily small enough to fit in your car’s trunk. To power the device, you can plug it into any wall outlet or 12v socket in your car or truck. Alternatively, you can run it on stored energy from the power bank or open the optional solar panels to soak up natural energy from the sun’s rays. The unit runs for eight hours on battery, keeping you cool throughout the day. In addition, the Coolala has a built-in LED light in the handle which is perfect for nighttime reading or lighting up a campsite. Furthermore, pet owners can make life more comfortable for their furry friends on hot days.

What is the status on the unit?, you have not given us updates and have not met your deadlines. Will we receive refunds soon or do we need to get kickstarter involved? You have 1 week to give an update, refunds or ship out the units if not I will be contacting kick starter and discussing the matter with my attorney for potential legal remedies preferably class action.

Where's the outlets on the power bank for phone travel adaptors for example?
Why is the first run campaign left hanging for months after "Provide excellent user experience"?

Just looking for an update on delivery? Last year when I pledged I think the expected ship date was March, it is now nearing the end of May and we have not gotten an update on when the units may ship? Summer is near. Thanks!

Hi! All backers,
Our electric parts and molding are ready now. Thanks for your great support.

I totally agree with Jordan Blois's comment below. It's now mid March and it would be nice to see some working prototypes. Especially a demo with thermometers showing the actual air temp that is coming out of the units. The last Update was on Feb 9th.. It would be nice to get at least one or more updates each month. Thank you..

Review from Kickstarter
If "Everything is on schedule and delivery will be started in June, 2018.
Many thanks.", it should be easy to make a video or detailed update, showing a current prototype. That or show progress of the "Invented Compressor". I don't mean to push, but in almost 7 months, there has to be some form of credible statistics or proof of a working prototype; especially with shipping in 4 months. Another idea would display a thermometer in a room with coolala (thermometer away from device output) and show the ambient temperature drop, obviously monitoring the entrance and displaying no other form of cooling present. Some projects do this with videos of 8 to 15 seconds, descriptive photos and explanations of the photos Again, I completely understand Everything is on schedule and delivery will be started in June, 2018; However considering the timeline it is more than reasonable for the backers to get an update of the projects progress, not the same message of assurance.

Please send the link for the option of an eight hour battery pack as well so I can compare to decide which option is more cost effective for my requirements. Thanks.

@JP,
Please dont worry. We will prepare the output voltage according to backer's country.
Thus, we will send you 220V output power station. Many thanks.

The ac output for the battery is 110v?
Any options for 230v?

@CherylAnn Falconer,
The included 12V to 24V step up cable is for use in a car cigarette lighter.
We have sent you email confirmation to your kickstarter message box.
Please note and response. Thanks.

@Jason Brennan,
It's not recommended to modify the solar panel connector and connect to other device. Thanks.

Good morning,
We are looking forward to receiving our unit in April 2018. We want to use it for our 46ft sailing yacht. we will be leaving in July 2018 to sail south to the tropics. We have a 12volt system on the yacht what type of connectors come with the unit or do we we require. is their an email address i can send our shipping address to. ? Thanks CherylAnn

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for that very detailed answer John. Looking forward to receiving this product. It will be great for when my RV is parked off grid to have D/C powered air conditioning or to use outside while camping. The usefulness of the lithium ion Power Pack is an added bonus to power appliances in my RV, etc. I will also use this unit when travelling with my dog in a vehicle over the hot summer months. Great product concept. Just one final question. What type of connector does the optional solar panel utilize to tie in with the Power Station? Will I be able to use my existing RV solar panels or do I require a special connector?

@Jason,
The battery cell is 18650 LG lithium battery and recharge cycle is up to 1000 times.
The power station can be used for many of the home appliances. e.g. TV, DVD player, game consoles, HiFi systems, musical instruments, vacuum cleaners, fans, etc.
For a 40,000mAh power station, the watt hour is 960wh.
The operation time for a fully charged power station is depended on the power consumption of the home appliance.
It's a pure sine wave inverter that reduces audible and electrical noise in fans, fluorescent lamps, audio amplifiers, TV, fax and answering machines.
Prevents crashes in computers, strange printouts and interference in monitors.
Thanks.
Jason Brennan
Review from Kickstarter
Hello. Just a few questions pertaining to the Power Station. First, what type of batteries do the Power Station utilize? Is it lithium ion? What type of household appliances could this Power Station operate and for how long? Secondly does the power station use a modified sine wave inverter or a pure wave inverter? Thanks.

@Karl,
Thanks for your help but it's still not working.
We will reach Kickstarter team and see if they can clarify it.
Keep in touch.
Thanks and have a nice day.

I cannot seem to send you a private message. So, pardon the public message. Not sure what else to do. I called Chase Visa. Their Fraud Department is aware that this is a legitimate charge and said to try again. It should go thru fine now.

@Andreas,
It will last for few seconds.
Because the power consumption will reach the peak when the compressor starts to work from idle. Thanks.
Andreas
Review from Kickstarter
What's "a little while"? Minutes? Seconds? Milliseconds?
Coolala
Review from Kickstarter
@Andreas,
The Coolala will only draw the max. current at 42.7A for a little while when it's switched ON from OFF status.
The wattage of the included power supplier is 1050W. Thanks.
Andreas
Review from Kickstarter
There is quite a difference between those 6.5A avg and 42.7A max. For how long does it draw those 42.7A? What's the wattage of the power supply you plan to ship with the device?
Coolala
Review from Kickstarter
@ Andreas,
Yes, there is a step up cable for using the Coolala in a 12V vehicle.
The fuse of the cigarette lighter is also needed to be upgraded.
Thanks.
Andreas
Review from Kickstarter
What is the full input range of the 12V input? Since it's supposed to be run from a car battery, it can't be that narrow. Do I read this correctly, that the unit actually has 24V in, but you include a step up converter from 12V? Is the amperage given in the spec for the 24V and so about double that at 12V? The common car cigarette lighter connector can only provide 10A, which would not be enough.
