Klarstein Whirlwind: not an air conditioner, but a cooler


We need to make a clarification right away before we get fully into the Klarstein Whirlwind review. This product is referred to as a “3-in-1”, meaning it’s supposed to be a portable air conditioner, a dehumidifier and a fan. And before you can make a purchase that doesn’t conform to the truth, let us tell you right now that it is an evaporative cooler and not an air conditioner.
And what‘s the difference?
The difference is stark because the portable air conditioner is used in an enclosed space so as to adequately cool a room, whereas the cooler can also be used outdoors. In addition, coolers do not lower the temperature in the room, but only emit a cold air (like a pleasant breeze in summer). Once it’s turned off though, it immediately passes the comfort.
So, if you want a product that is more useful than a fan because of the emission of really cold air, then we suggest you continue reading the review. If not, better opt for the real Klarstein portable air conditioners.

Klarstein Whirlwind: 3 in 1?

We’ve already explained how this is an evaporative cooler and not a real portable air conditioner (although such machines are also called water coolers). The operation is quite simple since you have to put ice or cold water in the 5.5 litre tank (which is quite large considering that some models have a tank of only 3 litres). If you don’t put water, the Klarstein Whirlwind can also be used just as a simple fan.

The third function would be that of dehumidifier, a function that can be activated but we can not expect “miracles”. In short, our advice is to buy this product only if you need a cooler , a fan and a humidifier. All coolers are also humidifiers because the air that comes out is cool and humid, so you need to use them in an airy environment.
In this review we intentionally started with the clarifications, now let’s move on to the technical features instead:

  • Three adjustable speed levels.
  • Programmable timer: to set the switching on and off of the Klarstein Whirlwind cooler(from 0.5 hours to 7.5 hours).
  • Optimal and homogeneous ventilation: thanks to the 360° oscillating fins.
  • Remote control already included: so you can remotely control the Klarstein Whirlwind cooler.
  • Night mode: the ventilation will be weaker, in order to guarantee less noise. On this last point we must say that the noise can still be annoying, although in our opinion we are on less excessive standards than we have already become accustomed to some coolers and fans.
  • Natural mode: it simulates the wind by alternating lighter and stronger blows.
  • Dust filter: for a purer air.
  • Low energy consumption: 110 watts.
  • Dimensions and weight. 41 x 90 x 27 cm – 9 kg.

Klarstein Whirlwind cooler: final opinions

Do we recommend the purchase of the Klarstein Whirlwind?

Yes, but only as a cooler, humidifier and fan.
And why do you prefer it to other 3-in-1 coolers?
Because it has multiple modes of operation (including natural mode which simulates the wind very well), an adjustable timer up to 7.5 hours (some models do not have one) and, in addition, you can control it remotely with the remote control that is already included.
This is our conclusion and our “why choose it”, but you can also read the opinions of those who have already used it by clicking here.
