Summer is not for everyone – sure it is nice when you are at the beach but is it nice to feel like you are being roasted like a turkey when its not Thanksgiving? I personally thrive in the snow but keeping on brand with this being unprecedented 2021, I have found myself in lockdown in India which means I am currently dealing with a hot, humid, tropical climate and it feels like I am an iPhone on 1% battery. What people like me need is Sony’s Reon Pocket 2 air conditioner, which is on sale in Japan and now can be charged by your phone!
The first version of this portable, wearable, air conditioner works using thermoelectric cooling and can cool the user’s body temperature by 13 degrees celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) and raise your temperature by about 8 degrees Celsius (about 14 degrees Fahrenheit). The new design, with its newly designed drive circuit, delivers double the performance. Since the device is meant for a summer day, the device is sweat and water-resistant, making it ideal for full-day usage, and for active lifestyle like golfing or going for a run. You can use the device with USB power bank, and it runs anywhere from 4 to 20 hours before stopping. For those of us who hate the cold more than the heat, Reon 2 comes with a WARM mode to keep your frosty fingers warm.
It is sleek, minimal, and comfortable as a piece of wearable tech. The new model also comes with an array of sportswear branded partnerships – including Le Coq Sportif, Munsingwear, and Descente to produce a range of golf clothing that features pockets for the device to slot into. Or you can simply use the neckstrap provided by Sony to sport it with your favorite outfit. Weighing only 90gm, this cool little wearable is worth every gram of the convenience it brings. Summer, we are ready for you!
