It bears watching, maybe it will be a good one for the FGRV community.
- It would be >super< if it had a low-current draw start mode and if it could run directly off DC (reducing electrical
losses when run from a battery). Such a unit in a small, well insulated space could keep two sleepers cool all night on one Class 27 battery
(drawn down to 50%). Off-grid all night cooling without a generator would be nice.
- I have doubts it will be more efficient than today's conventional window units. Heat exchangers work most efficiently with large surface area, single-pass designs, and compact layout of this unit makes that harder to achieve.
- Noise: It will depend largely on their ability to accoustically isolate the compressor from the living space and the choice of a quiet fan design. The former is harder to achieve in the small package they've chosen (but perhaps they can find a way).
