Our Honest Opinion

The JML air cooler came complete with a manual. It is light, portable, easy to assemble and operate.

On receiving the product, it worked perfectly for the first few days. It started developing problems after a few weeks. The operating fan speed setting was not working; it worked with the highest speed.

The cooling was not as effective. You have to place very close to you, at the highest fan speed to feel the cooling effect.

The water kept depleting too fast, and you have to add water now and then. The cooler ran for a few months before it needed a filter change. The filter had mould growing on it, and we felt it was a safety and health concern. The unit’s air filter is paper-like and not washable. It crumbled on washing. Replacing the filter was expensive, almost half the purchase price.

The unit is not as quiet; it’s quite noisy, not suitable for the bedroom. And for you to feel the cooling effect, it had to be by the bed’s stand. The Led lights sequence gives a beautiful setting and sets the mood.

We were disappointed by the JML air cooler and would not recommend it. The company should invest in making it a better product. The build and functioning of the cooler are wanting. The unit was leaking after a while and had to place it over a bucket. The air cooler is not powerful and did not give the cooling effect that it promised in the advert. It felt like got a copy of what they had advertised on TV.

The pricing is affordable for the small unit. If it worked and functioned better, it would be money worth of investment. If you are looking for a cooling experience, don’t go for this model it might disappoint you.
