Alternative to evaSmart EV-3000?

If you think the price tag of $259 is too high the Evapolar also offers another cheaper model of its portable AC unit for $169 which is called the evaLight which is equally good but has a bit less cooling power of 1200 BTU which is effective for only 32 sqft area. It’s also smaller in size measuring 6.87x6.70x6.69 inches and weighs just under three pounds without the water in its tank which means you need to fill the tank with water more frequently and replace the cartridge every three to six months. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a companion app but all the functions are accessible through the touch screen on top of the unit.
