I see the carry on A/C units on craigslist all the time for fair prices. You might keep an eye on it.

I saw those the other day in Meijers. Looks like it could be a handy unit to have for several different situations. I just wondered what method they used for heat exchange, its gotta go somewhere.


they have a few different portable ones

I have one of the 12,000 BTU Soleus units. I returned it once under warranty as it just went dead. The replacement unit ran okay through warranty but shortly after the warranty period the electronics started locking up. The unit is heavy and I would not call it a portable or carry-on unit. The vent hose does have to be run out of the area being cooled, out a window, hatch, etc.
