Has anyone used an "Iceybreeze" cooler/ac unit?

Swamp Coolers, Cooler Management, Dry Ice, Misting Systems, and just plain how to beat the heat.

You can find them on amazon. They look interesting but not sure.

Anyone have any experience with one?

Thanks

It's called an "Icybreeze".
It's a piece of shit.
If you can obtain the supplies quickly enough, build a FIGJAM bucket cooler. Google that or find FIGJAM's "Cooling your tent or van" thread.

Agree with the Captain.
To get the equivalent cooling of the Figjam cooler, you will go through about 25 pounds of ice per hour (ice heat of fusion is 144Btu/lb). And you have to power the fan. A real air conditioner that size would take about 7 Amps @120V and go through about .15 gallons of gasoline/hour.
