Not many small portable air conditioners are on the market with good reviews. Amongst that we found, this is what we think the best. It has a nice design with the size of only 13.1 x 13.1 x 17 cm.

But with such a small size, it only cools your body. It cannot cool a room.

Not only cooling, but this small machine can also filter out odors and dust, and provide misting, fresh and healthy air. It purifies and humidifies the air.
