Novita’s portable air conditioner is a 3-in-1 masterpiece. It’s configured with blue-fin cooling for faster cooling, higher efficiency, and longer durability. The fogging technology also quickly evaporates all the moisture condensed from the air and expels it through the exhaust hose. Maintenance is super convenient and hassle-free since you don’t have to empty the water tank.
