You probably already have air conditioning in your bedroom, but how about your common areas? Since most of us are staying at home due to the pandemic, it's no secret that the heat of the dry season is stewing us in our own sweat, that we could only wish that we all had central air conditioning.

But while that's pretty much a dream, editor Louise Ferrer found us a short-term and practical solution on TikTok: the Arctic Air Cooler Mini Air Conditioner.

With this portable air conditioner, you can enjoy cool, clean air wherever you go. All you have to do is fill it up with water, plug it into a power source (like a wall outlet or the USB port of your powerbank/laptop), and you're all set! Each fill can run up to eight hours.
