What a cool idea! What a lousy product!
The Auto Cool is a solar-powered fan that’s supposed to keep your car cooler inside when parked in the sunshine. It mounts atop the side window.
|Here’s what’s wrong with this cool idea: |
I have yet to find situation where I can get the fan to come on attached to the car window, even on the brightest of days in over 100 degree heat. I did get it to come on sitting on the dashboard but what good is that? The Auto Cool is a total waste of money. The tinkerer might find a way to remove the solar cells and mount them horizontally outside the car. How much actual cooling one would get is hard to say. My advice: crack the windows a little.
