FAQs

A:
Totalcool is a portable tri voltage, 12v, 24 volt
& AC power evaporative air cooler. Pour 3 pints of water in through the lid, plug the power lead into cigarette socket, select fan speed and away you go!
A:
– A refrigerated air conditioning system is hard to beat, but useless without 110v 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 Totalcool 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 104 (F) day with humidity at 12% showed a vent temperature at 69 (F) using just water at room temperature!
A:
Water usage with evaporative cooling varies on fan speed and ambient air temperature.

Under most conditions Totalcool's internal 3 pints supply will last all night on 'low' speed – adequate for cool air while you’re sleeping!
A:
Totalcool can be used without water in areas of high humidity, you can even add ice!

Totalcool features a transparent water window to display level.
A:
Totalcool only uses a maximum of 1.8 amps (on boost speed)

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

You will generally find ‘low’ fan speed (0.3 amps) more than adequate for sleeping.

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

The Totalcool 3000 features new Low Battery Protection to shut the cooler off if battery voltage falls below 11.2V

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

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

A deep cycle battery can supply power 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 RVs, campers & van conversions, 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 Totalcool running until battery voltage was reduced to 12 volts – this ensures reliable vehicle startup!

– LOW SPEED – 42 hours
– BOOST SPEED – 10 hours

*Battery power draw examples were recorded using a fully charged Lion 22F-520 (12volt 60 Amp hour) car battery, running the Totalcool 3000 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.
A:
The sound level produced by the Totalcool 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 4ft.

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

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