Hi
Anybody come across this cooling device before? Have to say it sounds too good to be true and I can't find any independent reviews. It seems to be a Greek product - might be worth purchasing one if they're any good.

These are advertised on UK TV at the moment with a claim that they drop the air temp by up to 6% ... wow ! (sarcastic wow ) think they might need to be a bit stronger here to make any difference.

Yes, it's too good to be true. It's not Greek. If you wander round the internet, you'll see the same advert from whichever country you're looking at. You'd be just as well-off putting a bowl of water in front of a fan, and sitting in the line of airflow.

If something is too good to be true, is it then true?

Not in this case by the look of it. Thank you gents for your replies - looks like I'll have to stick to the cold Mythos strategy.

That the one where you put the bowl of Mythos in front of a fan?

That particular product is being targeted at us wherever our internet setup fails to block ads. Kind of annoying that it's being trumpeted as a tech breakthrough, as those things have been around for a long time.

We already had an 'evaporative cooler' for a small bedroom and it's OK. The other day it dropped the temperature from 32 to 27 in an hour or two, and the cost it that of running a very small fan.

They have a pad that continually soaks up the water, so it's a lot better than just the bowl of water trick. More like a wet t-shirt that's being dampened regularly, which is exactly what I'm doing right now out on the balcony ;)

And those coolers are less effective as the humidity rises, as evaporation then becomes more difficult.
