UK designed and manufactured by a team who live and breath evaporative cooling technology. The Totalcool 3000 is the very latest in ergonomic design and evaporative cooling technology. Designed to be as simple and easy to use as possible, it really is plug and play!
Robust and solidly manufactured from special bacteria resistant plastic with a bio-degradable filter the Totalcool has been designed with green credentials in mind. Blowing 45% cooler air from normal tap water the Totalcool can be used as easily in remote locations as at home or work bringing you cool air whenever you need it as long as you can open a door, window or vent to allow some fresh air in to supply the Totalcool.
Lightweight and highly energy efficient the Totalcool can be used anywhere you have 12 or 24 volt DC power or 100 – 240 AC mains power. The Totalcool has 4 speed settings from low through to BOOST for an extra cooling blast in the hottest climates. The low setting is designed to run as quietly as possible to allow you to sleep on those humid nights while experiencing a cooling gentle breeze.
