Arctic Air Ultra

Arctic Air Ultra is an air-cooling device that's purported to be able to cool a room in a similar way to an air conditioner, but while using as little energy as a compact fan. This small device is only about the size of a toaster and can be plugged into any ordinary wall outlet or USB port. Once you fill its inner container up with water, it's hydro-chill technology will aim to convert the warm air around you into much cooler air.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Plug In The Device

    To get started with your Arctic Air Ultra, plug it into a wall outlet of your choice or an available USB port. If you plug it into a USB port, make sure the digital device that contains that USB port is powered on, or else your air-cooling device won't run properly. You must also ensure that the cooling device is resting on a flat surface.

  2. Fill With Water

    Next, open the lid on the inner container located on one side of your device, and fill that container with water. If a digital device is nearby, be careful that you don't spill water on it. For this step, it's best to use cold or lukewarm water, as opposed to warm or hot water, since warm or hot water won't be as effective in helping cool the area around you.

  3. Press Cooling Button

    Once you've filled it with water, to let this device do its work, press the cooling button on the top. When you're facing the back of the device, this button will be the one that's on the right-hand side. After you press this button, you should notice that the air in the area immediately surrounding you becomes cooler in minutes.

How It Works

Every Arctic Air Ultra contains an evaporative air-cooling filter and a cool mist chamber, and adding water to each device enables these components to function. Once water has been added, the device will suck in hot air from the area around you, and when this air mixes with the water, it'll transform into much cooler air. This cool air will then be expelled from the device through its venting so that it can reach you and cool the area you're in. If no water is added to your air-cooling device, however, none of this will work and its vents will just blow out hot air.


  • Lightweight

    As mentioned, this device is approximately the same size as a standard toaster, and probably weighs much less. Therefore, virtually any user will be able to move it from room to room in their place of residence, or even outdoors and back, without great difficulty. Plus, if you want to transport your cooling device to your office or cottage in your vehicle, it won't take up more than one or two feet of space in your trunk or backseat.

  • Runs Up To 10 Hours

    After you've filled up your Arctic Air Ultra, you won't need to be constantly refilling it with water. In fact, depending on the original temperature and humidity level in the area you're using it in, it may be able to run for up to 10 hours without needing to be refilled. Once it does use all the water within its inner container, it'll immediately start up again after you've dumped some more water in.

  • Purifies and Humidifies

    Aside from cooling off your immediate area, this device will also purify and humidify the air in that space at the same time. Since some people can breathe better in humid environments in comparison to dry ones, and purified air is much cleaner than non-purified air, your device may be able to aid with breathing issues.

  • Adjustable Air Flow

    The amount of air flowing out of your Arctic Air Ultra can be adjusted via the cooling button. On some days, you may just want a low flow of air, while on hotter days, you might want a more powerful flow. You'll also be able to use your device's digital thermostat to keep an eye on and control the temperature in your space, perhaps turning up the air flow if you notice it becoming hotter.

Positive Points

  • Won't Disturb People

    Although one of these devices might get a bit louder when the air flow is turned up than it would be with the air flow turned down to the minimum level, it'll always be whisper-quiet. As a result, it won't disturb you or anyone else around you while you're trying to read, watch television, knit, text people or do some other quiet activity. Furthermore, if you use it in your bedroom, it likely won't disturb even the lightest sleepers.

  • Environmentally Friendly

    The Arctic Air Ultra is considered an environmentally friendly device since it uses far less energy than a traditional larger air conditioner. Moreover, it doesn't make use of freon gases or liquids—which can potentially be toxic to the environment and human health—during the cooling process.

  • Cools Only Immediate Area

    Once someone has plugged in and turned on their Arctic Air Ultra, it'll only cool the immediate area around that person. More specifically, if you turn one on in your bedroom because you're hot, it won't disturb your roommate in the next room who tends to get chilly. Similarly, if you turn your device on at your desk in your workplace, it won't disturb your chilly coworker, either, as long as your desks aren't so close that they're almost touching.

  • Works Outdoors

    While you can't lug a large air-conditioning unit outdoors, you'll be able to carry one of these devices outdoors if you feel the need to. On a hot day, yours may come in handy if you want a cool breeze to blow on you while you garden, do yard work or relax in a lawn chair. Just remember that you'll need to bring along a digital device with a USB port to plug your air-cooling device into (unless you've got a wall outlet outside to use for that purpose).

Negative Points

  • Won't Dehumidify

    This air-cooling device will humidify a particular area, but it won't perform any dehumidification. Consequently, it may not be the best air-cooling tool for people who feel better and can breathe better in dry, dehumidified areas as opposed to humidified ones—everyone's different in that respect. While it'll still cool a person who prefers drier environments off, it may also make them feel unwell at the same time.


  • Only Fill With Water

    The inner container in each Arctic Air Ultra must be filled with water only. At some point, you might be tempted to put some sort of fragrant liquid in it to make a stinky room smell better, but anything that's not water could damage the inside of your device. What's more, another liquid besides water may not cool the air coming out of the device in the same way that water is able to.

You have to stick your head directly in front of it. It is useless.

It's Ok

It's an ok unit as long as you freeze the filter and pour ice water in the top than point it directly towards your body within inches. Hi-speed is a little noisy so I put it on medium.

Big Disappointment

I paid $40 for this fan and I followed the instructions. I have a small breezeway about 100 sq ft and ran this for 2-3 hours. I used a temp gun in the room and a fan grill. Both temps were the same. This does not work. How can a company cheat so many people? The stores get the bad rap.

Not as Great as Expected

I am a bit disappointed with the purchase. First, it works, but can hardly feel any temp change unless using ice and water, then, only a tiny difference. Second, it is not quite as stated, it is actually almost loud. Not worth the price, may as well spend a little more and get an actually AC.

It Does Cool Off the Immediate Area

I disagree with the person who said it doesn't cool. It does when used as recommended. It's not an A/C unit it's a cooling unit.

They say it can be run from USB but so far I haven't seen or found the correct connector?

If I can make one suggestion toss the light invest in USB compatible set up instead.

Not Worth the Money

This product does not get very cold and is not worth the money.
