Cool Surge Portable Air Cooler


There was a full-page ad for this in my local newspaper.
It is made in China and is supposed to use very little electricity and blasts out ice-cooled air. Sells for around $228.
The unit looks like a tall heater and can be rolled room-to-room.
No windows, vents, or freon is required.
How anyone used this and if so, what are your thoughts?
Thanks.

It blows air over blocks of ice which you've created in your fridge. Assuming your freezer is in the same house - a closed system - you're creating more heat than you're removing.
Google "cool+surge+scam" yields over three million hits.

Good grief, it sounds like that ring you freeze and pop over a fan after you've frozen it. I've often wondered how that works, since the ice would melt quickly. LOL

I've wondered about put a fridge in the wall, so the heat dumps out of the building. Of course, it would not work properly in the winter.

Only if you leave the door open.Till then it is a fridge waiting to die.

http://www.coolsurge.com/index.cfm?DropCode=CSWG8&gclid=CNnz_7SOypQCFQv7agodSFqjlA The laws of physics still win. It uses ice blocks. You remove the heat from the block in your freezer. The freezer takes that heat and puts it back into the room. Then you put the blocks in the unit and they absorb heat making you feel cool right in front of it. Meantime, the block get hot so you put them back in the freezer and remove the heat putting it back into the room again.
It is close to a perpetual motion machine, but it has to actually add heat along the way from the mechanical devices moving the heat energy around.
Get a real AC that removes the heat from one place and puts it into the outdoors, not in another room of the same house.
