Hot summer days are still ahead, resulting in hot, sleepless nights as well. If you are a boondocker/dry camper and don’t always have adequate – or any – electrical hookup to run your power-hungry air conditioner, what to do?
Geizeer is a personal, eco-friendly, portable mini-ice cooling with refrigerant device, which consumes less than 1 cent per day.
Geizeer is made of wood, a perfect thermal insulator. Externally it is composed of two shells in wood and metal finishing frames. Internally it contains a rechargeable battery, a micro USB with PCBs, a DC brushless fan and an ice pack.
The two lower and upper halves of the body overlap to form a cube. Half of the cube, that serves as a base, provides an isolated space for a rechargeable battery and a PCB with micro USB. Above this space, where the cooling elements are housed in the lid, is a brushless fan. The air is sucked from the grid in the upper half, cooled inside the cube, and pushed out through the slots that divide it in half.
Geizeer use is very simple. Simply drop the previously frozen ice pack (from your freezer) into the lower half of the cube, replace the top half, align the blue dots and the fan begins to run.
The fan draws hot air through the upper grid which forces a loss within the cube where the shape of the ice-pack allows diffusion of air to the gel. It is sufficient to cool a room of about 130 square feet – about the size of a 16-foot long by 8-foot wide living space – by about 5 degrees.
