Review Of The Amcor 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Unit

With global warming hitting critical levels, Earth is becoming hotter and hotter by the day. The winters feel like summer, and the summers sometimes feel like an industrial oven. That’s why most homeowners around the UK and the rest of the world have been forced to buy at least one air conditioning unit.

If you’re going to part with a handsome amount of your money for an air conditioner, it pays to be informed and educated. Today, air conditioners do more than just cooling the air. They also heat, dehumidify and purify.

Here’s my experience with the Amcor portable air conditioning unit and how it will fit your home.

What Are You Buying?

Standing tall and narrow like a black and white mailbox or desktop CPU, the Amcor 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Mobile Unit incorporates a simple yet beautiful design.

This particular air conditioner works as a 3 in 1 unit with a typical conditioner, dehumidifying system, and an average fan for when you don’t want the whole package. All these exciting features make the BTU conditioner from Amcor an ideal all year round appliance for everyone.

So, how does the Amcor 12000 work? This bad boy incorporates a unique evaporation booster for extremely high and efficient cooling. Simply put, it cools the air in a room by running it through evaporating water.

Now, while the unit itself is small, compact and a real space saver, you would be forgiven for thinking that it’s not as powerful as the larger units. I would recommend it for homes, smaller offices, boats or caravans – where it can cover areas of up to 30m2.

We Brits will be particularly happy to hear about the dehumidifying function. Nobody enjoys extremely stuffy, and moisture logged environments, especially with the winter season just behind us.

This unit lets you suck up as much as 50 litres of atmospheric water every single day. Lastly, if you just need a quick cooling without activating all the other features, you can just pop on the fan and enjoy convenient conditioning.

How Easy Is It To Use?

With smaller size and compactness comes a very easy to use design. The Amcor 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Mobile Unit is no different. Since no installation is required, this bad boy comes ready to use straight out of the box.

This is a real bonus because I always seem to lose small parts here and there and mess up the assembling process. The design on the BTU is not only attractive; it is also functional and practical. All the controls are cleverly laid out at the front with an electronic panel display for easier access and operation.

These controls are responsible for the function, intensity, timers as well as a slew of other settings.
Underneath the settings panel is the excessively large outlet that allows for quicker reaction to your desired temperature.

If you don’t want to get off your seat or bed to adjust the settings, you will appreciate the handy remote control. Being a mobile unit, you can move it around your rooms thanks to its lighter weight and castors that offer easy mobility. All in all, a very user-friendly air conditioner.

What Accessories Are Included?

Upon opening up your package, you should see the following items in the box:

  • Amcor 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Mobile Unit

  • Users guide

  • Space saving design

  • Higher price

Anything Else You Should Know?

One of the features that I noticed and have to mention is the way Amcor incorporated compartments to make things easier. Unlike my old fan where I had to fight with unraveling the cable, this air conditioner has a convenient cable management compartment at the back. This means that you can store your cable after you are all done and plug it in faster on the next use.


Cooling, dehumidifying and fanning – all fantastic features that definitely come in handy with UK’s shifty climate. If you want something that offers all the above features and doesn’t take up much of your space, then the Amcor 12000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Mobile Unit is exactly what you need.

It’s affordable, compact and responds very fast to changes in temperature. However, you should be prepared to handle a bit of noise from the unit.
