This isn't a portable air conditioner - it's a FAN, plain and simple. It does not cool a small room - it has to be right in front of you for you to even feel the cool air, and you have to fill the water reservoir every 4 - 6 hours depending on what setting you put it on. Who wants to get up in the middle of the night to add more water?! I had mine for only two weeks, and the motor burned out. Biggest waste of $40 ever!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
