Default Portable battery powered air conditioner: The Zero Breeze

This is a new Kickstarter project that looks interesting for people with heat issues like multiple sclerosis. Might make camping in the summertime a realistic possibility again. You won't backpack with it (14 lbs), but if it works as advertised, this could be a welcome tool in the MS toolkit. - D


---------------------

The Zero Breeze is the World’s First Portable, Smart, Multifunctional Air Conditioner that also functions as a bluetooth speaker, a night light, and a smartphone charging station. Zero Breeze is capable of cooling a 50 square feet room down to 44 ℉ making it perfect for your home, office, tent, RV, college dorm, and so much more.

Just an FYI that the Zero Breeze Kickstarter campaign ends September 30. The estimated retail price is $500, but commit now and it is $350. They already have $.5 million in pledges! I hope to test one in the future for ActiveMSers and, if it is solid, arrange a discount for members.

Dear Backers,

Thank you for all your amazing supports and patience to wait while our awesome Zero Breeze is still under production.

Zero Breeze production is running smooth. There was a delay due to the Lunar New Year holiday, but we are working hard and do our best to catch up what we have missed.
Currently, we are still preparing for the final production of the product, the latest updates are:

1. The molding of portable battery is finished.

2. Additional molding to the main shell of the body is still under production, while the other parts of the mold production have been completed.

3. In order to improve the quality of the music play, we are optimizing the Bluetooth audio with speaker suppliers.

4. The rotary compressor has been mass produced.

5. We use the BOSCH A/C Refrigerant Handling System

6. In order to seek a better effect of cooling, we specifically customized a fan for the ZERO BREEZE *and have completed the mold manufacturing.

We hope and surely work hard to finish all the production as scheduled and maintain your level of satisfaction.

Thanks again for your support.
Team Zero Breeze

Units are shipping soon and I've got an e-mail in to Terry, the founder, about testing. More to come!
