Of all the air conditioners in the portable category, not so many can rival the JHS A001-10KR/D as it delivers as expected. With its 10,000 BTU swift cooling capacity, this product can provide instant cooling for an area that is as big as 300 square feet. For those who have relatively small areas like the office, kitchen, bedroom, or even a garage, this is a perfect choice – efficiency and quality all rolled into one!
- Multifunctional Nature: The really good thing about this portable air conditioner is that it can also function as a dehumidifier and a two-speed fan.

In other words, if you want to keep your room dry and cool always, this is the product for you.
- Portability: The portable nature of this air conditioner is not in doubt as it is designed to be ideal for temporary installation.

Hence, if you want to move the air conditioner from place to place, it can be done, so you can keep any of the rooms you want cool and dry at any time.
- Ease of Use: The portable air conditioner comes with a 24-hour programmable timer and a thermostat that is easy to adjust to meet your exact needs without using too much energy. You can simply stay on your couch or even on your bed while you get to control all parts of the air conditioner using only your remote control unit. You can also set it into the sleep mode in which the temperature rises by just one degree in sixty minutes and it is maintained after a couple of hours – this ensures you get the most comfortable sleep every single night.
- Maximized Efficiency: The unit has a built-in auto-evaporation system whose function is to recycle practically all the condensed water. This way, it can increase its overall cooling efficiency and decreases the need for water drainage. The embedded tank can take up 0.7 liters and once it is full, a reminder alert lets you know that it is time to drain it. It also comes with dual drainage options which are auto and manual drainage options. There is also a drain hose that can be put to use in a matter of minutes.
- Noise Issues: A few users have complained that their units are a bit louder than they expected.
- Cost: Since one unit costs hundreds of dollars, some customers have complained about how pocket-friendly the product is.
