Overview

The Orkan 9000 BTU portable air conditioner stands out as one of the most robust models in our lineup, designed to efficiently cool rooms up to 35 square meters, which is notably larger than what is typically recommended for other units. This portable air conditioning unit boasts an impressive dehumidifying capacity, effectively removing 2-3 liters of moisture per hour.

While its cooling power of 2.6 kW is standard for portable models, it should be noted that the noise level is somewhat higher than average, at 63 dB. However, this is comparable to most air conditioners in the market, which generally fall within a similar range in terms of noise production.

The range of functions is a strong point of this air conditioner. Of course, it has a complete base, which includes a display, a timer and a remote control.

Pros and Cons

The advantage of the Orkan portable air conditioner is undoubtedly its equipment. It surpasses a significant part of the competition and impresses in particular with its WiFi connection function and automatic mode. We can also praise the powerful dehumidification. As for the weak points, we have no major complaints about this model. We would only appreciate a higher cooling performance, which is only average for this model. Some users may also need more heating functions.

A big advantage over portable air conditioners is their ability to connect to WiFi and smart home. Overall, this air conditioner impressed the editor because a powerful portable air conditioner can be purchased reasonably.
