FAQ’S

What is it?

Transcool is a portable dual voltage, 12v or 24 volt evaporative air cooler. Pour 2 litres of water in through the lid, plug the 3 metre power lead into cigarette socket, select fan speed and away you go!

Will the Transcool portable air cooler cool my room or vehicle like a built in air conditioner?

– A refrigerated air conditioning system is hard to beat, but useless without 240v electricity!

– A refrigerated air conditioning system has many complex and expensive components. These systems require many permanently fitted parts such as a compressor, condenser, evaporator and refrigerant gas to cool air. A vehicle or household air conditioner requires immense power to ‘drive’.

– Evaporative cooling performance can differ depending on various conditions such as ambient temperature and humidity, but test results show that Transcool can deliver air temperatures up to 45% cooler (at the vent) than the ambient air temperature just using water at room temperature!

– Test results taken on a 40 (C) day with humidity at 12% showed a vent temperature at 21 (C) using just water at room temperature!

– Transcool can provide you with cool air that simply feels like HEAVEN!

How long will the water last?

Water usage with evaporative cooling varies on fan speed and ambient air temperature.

Under most conditions Transcool’s internal 2 litre supply will last all night on ‘low’ speed – adequate for cool air while you’re sleeping!

The great news is that no damage will result if you run the Transcool out of water during use!

Transcool can be used without water in areas of high humidity, you can even add ice!

The EC3F is also supplied with an external 5 litre tank for extended periods of use. The clear external tank features an ON/OFF tap and connects to the unit via hose.

The Transcool EC3F uses an internal float system that automatically maintains the correct water level when using the external tank.

Transcool features a transparent water window to display level.

How long will my battery last?

Transcool only uses a maximum of 1.7 amps (on high speed)

This equals hours of cooling comfort – even without your vehicle running

You will generally find ‘low’ fan speed (0.7amps) more than adequate for sleeping.

For extended periods of cooling, use of a deep cycle battery or battery power pack is recommended.

The Transcool EC3F features new Low Battery Protection to shut the cooler off if battery voltage falls below 11.2V

Results below display greater fan operation times using a Transion 12v100Ah Deep Cycle LiFePo4 Battery

– LOW SPEED – 157 Hours*
– HIGH SPEED – 59 hours*

*Test results using Transcool with a Transion 100Ah deep cycle battery pack until battery power was drained to 10.5 volts.

A deep cycle battery can supply power supply for a much longer period of time, and can be drained to a lower voltage than a standard car ‘starting’ battery, which has a primary purpose to deliver short, high energy bursts of current for vehicle starting.

Most caravans, 4WD’s and boats are fitted with secondary ‘deep cycle’ battery systems, sometimes with larger 100 amp hour batteries to provide extended power supply for appliances such as fridges and cooler’s etc.

The following results were achieved using a standard 12volt 60ah Lead acid car battery*, with Transcool running until battery voltage was reduced to 12 volts – this ensures reliable vehicle startup!

– LOW SPEED – 42 hours
– HIGH SPEED – 10 hours

*Battery power draw examples were recorded using a fully charged Delkor 22F-520 (12volt 60 Amp hour) car battery, running the Transcool EC3F constantly until battery voltage fell to 12 volts (battery was not connected to car at time). Individual results may vary on depending on battery specification.

How much noise?

The sound level produced by the Transcool Evaporative air cooler is even quieter than that of a car air conditioner/heater fan. This ranges from 46db (low fan speed) to 59db (maximum fan speed) at 1 metre.

The tone Transcool produces is a relaxing, steady weary drone – perfect to help dilute any annoying outside noises.

The Transcool evaporative air cooler can be used in nearly any environment and vehicle!
