It seems like only yesterday that I was telling you about Evapolar (it was 3 days ago, time flies, eh?) and its cooling benefits. Well, the folks at Evapolar haven’t just been sitting on their hands, they’ve been working on their next model. Right around the exact time our Evapolar review was published, the Evapolar 2 Indiegogo campaign was launched. What will the newer model bring to the party?
For starters, the water tank is bigger. Evapolar listened to their backers and customers and adjusted the size of the water tank to allow for 6-8 hours of cooling without needing a refill. That will immediately help anyone who wants to keep their Evapolar in the bedroom, as Evapolar 2 will handle a full night’s sleep more easily.
Evapolar has also redesigned the evaporative EvaBreeze material that they use to make it more efficient, while retaining the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of the original material. Aerodynamics have also been improved in order to provide a stronger airflow without increasing the noise.
Perhaps the biggest draw of the newer model though is its app support. Evapolar 2 will work with a newly developed app that will allow some new options. Switch-off timer and delayed start options will allow for greater control of your cooling. Evapolar is also working to add smart home support, including Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa, Samsung Smart Things, and Apple Homekit.
Evapolar’s return to Indiegogo was definitely intentional, as Evapolar CEO Eugene Dubovoy stated:
We returned to Indiegogo for the second time because we’d like our backers to shape the future of Evapolar with us. So we’ve taken into account the feedback you shared with us and created the next generation of Evapolar devices. We believe that the Indiegogo platform will serve as a launch point for the story of a community that shares our belief in climate personalization.
You can check out the Indiegogo campaign for more information, and though they’ve already completely smashed their funding goal (with a month still remaining on the campaign), they’ve graciously extended the early-bird offer, allowing you to get the newer model for $149 USD + shipping. The Indiegogo special price is $179 USD + shipping, with other perks available if you’re looking for multiple units.
