Full page ad in the local paper today for this. It's only $228 plus
$49 for shipping. The $28 extended warranty is optional. In the
newspaper ad, they do give you a $50 coupon for free gas, which IMO is
the only thing here worth a damn. Nowhere in either the print ad or
web description is anything said about how it works, beyond that it's
some "Chinese" discovery. LOL
Although this is trash, they were experimenting with big rigs, installing
ice makers and then they could turn the big rigs off at night and run fans
blowing thru the ice to keep the sleeping driver cool. I don't know if it
ever went into production.
Yes it does - blowing air over "reusable glacier ice blocks." A fan,
a case, & glacier ice blocks - must be $40-$50 worth of material for
$275. There are gullible people who will buy it.
They do the same thing in buildings here.
The building I work in is two story+ basement and covers a
Three well insulated containers each about 8ft by 8ft and
16ft long freeze water midnight to 6am. The containers then
cool the building thru it's existing chilled water system
all day long. Even on days over 100 degrees, the ice will
last to late afternoon. They get a big cut in electric rates
by shifting that load from day time to night time.
also, my first thought on the first post-
shipping $48 -now we know the cost+shipping ;-)
it's like the crap we get in bills, $29 value- free- just
pay $6 shipping.
Our Iranian dollar stores sell the exact same thing for $1.39.

Some reactors use an ice-barrier inside the containment building
structure to aid in condensing steam in the event of a LOCA (loss of
coolant accident) thereby reducing any building overpressure.
Just a sidelight... :)

As I understand this, it only works in Iraq. Conditions even in
Afghanistan may not be suitable. It certainly dangerous in the US.
What a waste. Although I've learned that a fan blowing on me where I
sit and where I sleep makes it feel 10 degrees cooler. Learning to
sleep without a blanket or cover sheet was worth at least 5 degrees.
And learning to sleep naked (with no cover) was worth another 5 or 10
Putting a speed control on the fan so that I can't hear it was the
last touch. Haven't turned on the AC yet this summer.
