An innovative portable evaporative air conditioning solution

The Transcool EC3 PLUS evaporative air conditioning unit is lightweight, compact and energy efficient. An environmentally friendly option, our dual voltage 12/24 volt evaporative coolers can work with or without water.

This cooling system can be used anywhere you have a 12, 24v dc or 100-240 volt electricity -at home or on the move.

The EC3 PLUS evaporative air cooling system features dual voltage circuitry which allows the Transcool evaporative cooler to be used with both 12 or 24 volts DC power (vehicle battery) or 100–240 AC voltage (household electricity) using the Free 100-240v transformer supplied.

The EC3 PLUS evaporative air conditioner unit features a Variable Fan Speed control, giving you a full range of fan speeds between ‘OFF’ to ‘HIGH’ Speed -and everywhere in between!

An evaporative air cooling system that’s portable and power efficient

The EC3 evaporative air conditioner unit also features ‘LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE CUTOFF’ circuitry- reducing the risk of flat batteries!

A fantastic companion to provide you or your pets with a beautiful cool breeze while at work, rest or play.

An effective portable evaporative cooler unit for use in your caravan, camper, tent, RV, truck sleeper bunk, boat or 4WD.

Designed and constructed in Australia using local and imported components.

Light weight, compact, robust, and Low current draw

Use with ice or water, or as a fan WITHOUT water!

24 month warranty*

Warranty Service centers in Australia, USA, Canada, Japan and Europe.

Please read ‘Transcool FAQs’ on ‘Home’ page for full product details before purchase.

What it won’t do!

Be very wary when considering cheaper portable evaporative coolers with  misleading claims of being able to ‘cool your room for pennies’!

Please remember that Transcool (or any other brand 12 volt evaporative cooler) won’t necessarily  cool down an entire room, car or cabin to ‘x’ degrees like a refrigerated split system Air Conditioner that require mains power electricity or engine driven compressors to operate!

It is a personal ‘spot cooler’ to provide personal relief by blowing cool air over the user whilst in front of the unit-A great comfort when things get hot!

*Valid with EC3 PLUS (flip top lid model)

FAQ's

What is it?
Transcool EC3  is a portable dual voltage, 12v or 24 volt evaporative air cooler. Pour 1.8 litres of water in through the lid, plug the 3 metre power lead into cigarette socket, select fan speed and away you go!

How cold will the Transcool EC3 12 volt air cooler make my cabin or room?

The Transcool will not cool down a ‘room’ to a controlled temperature, this is where a refrigerated unit is required

Transcool is able to blow a cool breeze over the user whilst in front of the unit.

It  is a ‘personal spot cooler’ – delivering a cool breeze on you effectively at a range of up to 2-3 metres distance.

Will the Transcool portable air cooler cool my room or vehicle like a built in air conditioner?

Quite simply – No!

  • A refrigerated air conditioning system is hard to beat, but useless without 240v electricity!
  • A refrigerated air conditioning system has many complex and expensive components. These systems require many permanently fitted parts such as a compressor, condenser, evaporator and refrigerant gas to cool air. A vehicle or household air conditioner requires immense power to ‘drive’.
  • Evaporative cooling performance can differ depending on various conditions such as ambient temperature and humidity, but test results show that Transcool can deliver air temperatures up to 45% cooler (at the vent) than the ambient air temperature just using water at room temperature!
  • Temperatures at up to 50% cooler than ambient (at the vent) can be achieved using ice water*.
  • Test results taken on a 40 (C) day with humidity at 12% showed a vent temperature at 21 (C) using just water at room temperature!
  • Transcool can provide you with  cool air that simply feels like HEAVEN!

How long will the EC3 water last?

Water usage with evaporative cooling varies on fan speed and ambient air temperature.

Under most conditions Transcool’s internal 2 litre supply will last all night on ‘low’ speed – adequate for cool air while you’re sleeping!

The great news is that no damage will result if you run the Transcool EC3 out of water during use!

Transcool can be used without water in areas of high humidity, you can even add ice!

The EC3 is also supplied with an external 5 litre tank for extended periods of use. The clear external tank features an ON/OFF tap and connects to the unit via hose.

The Transcool EC3 uses an internal float system that automatically maintains the correct water level when using the external tank.

Transcool features a transparent water window to display level.

Will the Transcool work in humid areas?

The Transcool is surprisingly effective in humid areas!

We have used and sold these units around all areas of Australia with humidity levels of over 90% at times with surprising results.

We never claim that Transcool will cool down an area, but the feeling of the cool air blowing on your skin in humid areas is amazing!

How long will my battery last?

Transcool EC3 only uses a minimum of 0.7 (Low) and up to a maximum of 1.7 amps (High)

This equals hours of cooling comfort – even without your vehicle running

You will generally find ‘low’ fan speed (0.7amps) more than adequate for sleeping.

For extended periods of cooling, use of a deep cycle battery or battery power pack is recommended as they are designed for powering appliances.

A car ‘starting battery’ is basically designed to provide a short powerful supply to start your vehicle, but not to power appliances for any length of time.

The Transcool EC3 features Low Battery Protection to shut the cooler off if battery voltage falls below 11.5V

Calculating Battery Running Time-

Depth of discharge, also known as DOD, shouldn’t be any more than 50% in most deep cycle batteries in order to get the best battery life.

Depth of discharge is a very important calculation you should make when choosing the size of a deep cycle battery.

Example 1/  12v 100 Amp Hour AGM Deep Cycle battery

100 Ah x 50% =50 Amps useable power

Then divide this by the power draw of your appliance

50Ah divided by 0.7 Amps (Transcool on low speed)= 71.42 hours use

Lithium Iron Phosphate Batteries (LiPO4 )

Lithium batteries are far lighter and also have a greater Depth of Discharge (DOD)

Up to 80% of battery capacity can be used and still offer long battery life

Example 2/ 12 Volt 100 Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery

100Ah x 80% = 80 Amp hrs useable power

80 divided by 0.7 amps = 114.28hrs

Example 3/ 12 Volt 60 Ah LiPO4 Battery

60 Ah x 80%=48hrs useable power

48 hrs divided by 0.7 Amps= 68 hrs use

As you can see, a smaller LiPo4 battery with greater DOD can provide far more hours supply!

A Lithium Battery also has far more cycle life cycles (ability to be charged and discharged) than a conventional AGM or Calcium Deep Cycle battery

A lithium battery can be used for 2000+ life cycles

How much noise?

The sound level produced by the Transcool EC3 Evaporative air cooler is similar to that of a car air conditioner/heater fan. This ranges from 46db (low fan speed) to 59db (maximum fan speed) at 1 metre.

The tone Transcool produces is a relaxing, steady weary drone – perfect to help dilute any annoying outside noises.

The Transcool evaporative air cooler can be used in nearly any environment and vehicle!
