What is the difference between portable aircon and evaporative cooler?

While both portable and easy to use, the main difference lies in the cooling mechanism that these two use. Basically, for air coolers, you will need a huge amount of water or ice for it to be able to cool the room. It also adds more moisture to space; it is cooling, so it might not be the best option for areas with already high humidity levels.

On the other hand, portable AC is still powered by a condenser, thus not needing water for its cooling function. However, contrary to an evaporative cooler, it again comes with an exhaust hose as like the typical aircon, needs to extract the hot air from the room through that vent. This is an important consideration when buying portable aircon.
