This Astronaut uses a Flex Hose to provide the life giving comfort needed. You may duplicate that comfort from oppressive Heat by using the Flex Hose Kit designed for use with our MightyKool Cooling Systems. Just set the MW2 out of the way and direct the hoses where needed even in a Humid Area.
Astronauts and Race Car drivers have flex hoses placed where needed. This provides an example of what is possible by using the Flex Hose Kit for your own cooling needs in a vehicle, sleeper, golf cart, aircraft, boat, camper, etc.
Place a Flex Hose in your shirt for welcome relief or under your sheet to get a good nights sleep on a hot night in a humid area using water only for cooling with no ice needed.
The cool air streaming from the vents of the MightyKool MW2 Evaporative Cooler Model using water only may be 75 degrees in 100 degree Dry heat, however flowing through 100-degree air it quickly increases up to 90-degrees in as little as Two Feet! Therefore the need for the Flex Hoses. A Flex Hose is 2.5 inch (6.35 centimeter) in diameter X 7 Feet (2.1336 meter) length.
It is vital to have the cool air vents within inches of you, not feet away. Take advantage of the cool air with the hose surrounding you for maximum benefit. It is difficult to set the Cooling System within inches of you in a vehicle, therefore the need for the Flex Hose Kit.
The MW1 is sometimes used with the Flex Hose Kit, however for 15 to 20% more Cooling Velocity order the MW2 for an additional investment of $60.00. [Click Here to Place an Order on our Secure Server] or 480-897-1233.
The Owner of this 1970 Porsche 911 choose the MW2 Flex Hose Kit Combo. He thought he would have to purchase a newer Porsche with A/C. He is now able to keep cool in his Classic because of his MightyKool Cooling System with the Flex Hose Kit.
An Evaporative Cooler using water only or even adding ice cannot reduce the interior temperature of a moving vehicle, therefore the need for the Flex Hoses. In a humid area the Flex Hose Kit is absolutely needed for all uses if you want cool air using water only. Set the MW2 on the floor out of the way and place the hoses where needed.
Do not be fooled to think ice will help with evaporative cooling, as this is only a short-lived solution. If money and inconvenience are no problem then you might be willing to use one our "Ice Water" 12-Volt Air Conditioning models that use from 12 to 20 pounds of ice PER HOUR.
Normally using Evaporative Cooling you do not need the Flex Hose Kit in a Camper, Boat, Tent, etc. unless you are in a humid area. Then you need the Flex Hose Kit to take advantage of the 10 to 15 degree cooler air that you will experience in a humid area by using water only.
With simple installation either the 2 or 4 Flex Hose Kit allows you to set the Cooling System out of the way directing the Cool Air up to seven feet where you need it the most. Strongly consider the Kit if you must set your Cooling System farther than a few inches away from your needs in extreme heat especially in a Vehicle or Aircraft.
The Flex Hose Kit FH2 (left) contains everything needed for two hoses and the FH4 Kit (left below) contains everything needed for four Cool Air Vent hoses when you use the MW2. If you have a MightyKool Model with four Cool Air Vents (like the M400 or MK4) you would only use the front two and close the ones on the side for Flex Hose operations.
A Customer sent in this idea; I fashioned two hooks to hold the hoses anywhere in the car using some utility velcro straps and the cut off ends from a worn out bungee cord.
One reason you might want the Flex Hose Kit is when you are trying to cool two areas some distance from each other like in a Pop Up camper. You should use the MW2 in that case, as your will appreciate the 15 to 20% stronger cool air. For Pets in kennels or cages the Flex Hose Kit is a must.

First step is to simply remove the two Chrome Cool Air Vents from your MightyKool, install the Hose Adapters in their place and then position the Cooling System in an area out of the way.
Next secure the Flex Hose to the Hose Adapters that replaced the cool air vents, decide where you need the cool air then determine the length of Flex Hose needed. Cut off the excess hose placing the Chrome Cool Air Vents you removed into the end of each Hose. Secure all hoses with the wire ties and you are set to cool.
If you use the Flex Hose Kit the cool air is contained in the hose and only looses one degree per foot in 100-degree ambient air. For our example the 75-degree cool air would be 77-degrees in two feet, 79-degrees in four feet, etc.
Another factor is the Air Velocity effect using a Flex Two Hose system. The normal Feet Per Minute (FPM) velocity from each front outlet vent averages around 1,900 FPM per side on the MightyKool models. There is no loss in velocity using a five feet Flex Hose and the velocity using seven feet only drops about 7%.
Using the Flex Four Hose system yields about 1,300 FPM from each of the four hoses. Compare that with the total of 1,900 FPM coming from the two front vents. Granted that the four hoses will not have the velocity of the two hose system, however 1,300 FPM is plenty of velocity when you direct the cool air properly like you do in a Commercial Airliner.
The Flex Hose Kit Model FH2 contains two hose Adapters that will replace two Chrome Air Vents so that the hose can be attached to the front of the MightyKool. There are two 7-foot flex hoses with sufficient black plastic wire ties to help hold the flex hose where needed. The Chrome Air Vents will attach inside the flex hose end that has been cut to the desired length. The two hose Kit is $47.00 plus 12.00 shipping/handling anywhere in the Continental USA. Prices available upon request to other parts of the world. (No shipping/handling charge when ordering a new MightyKool model at the same time).
The Flex Hose Kit Model FH4 contains two hose Adapters that will replace two Chrome Air Vents so that the hoses may be attached to the front of the MightyKool. There are two 7-foot hoses, two 3-foot hoses, two one foot hoses and sufficient black plastic wire ties to help hold the flex hose where needed. There are two "Y" hose connectors to direct the air into the four hoses plus the two hoses going to the Cooling System. Also included are four new North Star Chrome Air Vents with four adapters to connect to the ends of the hoses. The original Chrome Air Vents are not suitable for the Flex Hose Kit FH4. The four hose Kit is $137.00 plus $14.00 shipping/handling anywhere in the Continental USA. Prices available upon request to other parts of the world. (No shipping/handling charge when ordering a new MightyKool model at the same time).
