33 degrees centigrade in Sydney today, time for an Evapolar?


The 2nd-generation evaSMART evaporative cooling microclimate experience creator is now on sale, with its app-controllable and super-portable nature perfect for days like this.

Today, Sydney is "enjoying" 33 degree Centigrade heat..

That’s 91.4F, and while it’s still nowhere near the 40 degree C or 104+ F temperatures coming in the hot, hot Australian summer, it’s a clear indicator of how Australia’s wild temperature ranges love to keep swinging, with the maximum temperature to drop to 18C tomorrow, a mere 64.6F.

Even so, there can be plenty of hot days in our Southern Hemisphere spring, and with summer just over 70 days away, breezing through summer with an Evapolar evaporative cooler is looking extremely attractive.

It was just under a month ago that I had the pleasure of meeting, and video interviewing, Evapolar’s business development director, Irina Yakubovskaya, who had arrived in Australia to attend the the The Gadget Expo and The Home Show, both next to each other at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

I was given a live demonstration of the company’s new, second generation smart evaporative cooler, delivering a microclimate of cool and refreshing temperature around you where you need it, called the evaSMART.

The original model, a massive success on Indiegogo in 2015, received support from more than 6000 backers and helped the company raise well over US$1 million.

The result was the evaLIGHT EV-1000 series, retailing for A$280, a stand-alone unit without any app control.

Now comes the evaSMART, with greater cooling power, quieter operation, nearly double the water capacity, a larger volumetric flow rate, and app compatibility so you can control the unit via Android or iOS, and retailing for A$370.

The evaSMART was available to pre-order, but is now on sale from its home website here

Powered via a USB-C cable that connects to a wall charger, or your smartphone’s external battery charger, you can take evaSMART anywhere.

I look forward to reviewing the new unit just in time for summer, and will be giving it a very thorough review when it arrives.

In the meantime, the original model has received amazing reviews around the world, which you can read for yourself online, to see whether this 21st-century version of a well known evaporative cooling principle is right for you, and whether it can help you to keep your cool.

Here’s my interview with Evapolar’s business development director, Irina Yakubovskaya:
