I received a Kulcar- Solar Powered Car Ventilator for this review. I was financially compensated for this post . My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
As you all know, I live in Florida where it is really hot pretty much all year around. For that reason, it takes a couple of minutes for my car’s AC to kick in and actually cool the car down….When I get in my car after it has been sitting in the sun while I am at work it’s like walking in an oven and I usually take my jacket off even before I get in my car.
Sonray is a research and development oriented company. They specialize in notebook, mobile phone, digital camera, digital communication and solar power related products.
The Kulcar- Solar Powered Car Ventilator is a lightweight relatively small unit that once I figured out how to install was actually very easy to setup in my car.
The Kulcar- Solar Powered Car Ventilator unit comes with two hard rubber strips; one of them is small and a larger one that you will have to cut to fit your car. Once the strips are in place all you basically have to do is drop the unit between the gap formed between the two bands with the plastic panel facing up so it seals the gap. As the unit is solar power operated, you really do not have anything to do but let the unit play its roll.
Now normally, this is all you need to do to have this unit installed and running, but the fact that because of the way the window in my car is shaped ( I have a Dodge Durango 2012), once I installed the unit , I couldn’t completely roll up my window, so there was a gap when the unit is on the window .
So I contacted the company and let them know about my problem with the Kulcar- Solar Powered Car Ventilator unit, and they sent me extra strips to seal that open gap on the window. They also sent me the instructions on what to do in order to get this solved and while it was not as easy as I had hoped, the extra strips did the trick and the unit was finally installed properly on my car.
I actually tested the unit while we were in Saint Augustine…I left the car parked outside the beach house the family was staying in and let the unit do its job.
The temperature outside as you can see in the video was 80 degrees when I first installed it and 88 degrees when I went back in the car. What I noticed when I went back in the car was that the car was not as hot as it would normally be in a similar scenario without the Kulcar Ventilator. So the unit does a good job cooling down the inside of the car.
While the inside of the car is still hot the temperature is not as hot as I would have expected it to be after being in the sun for a while.
Over all the Kulcar Solar car ventilator is a light weight unit, not too intrusive and is a great way to keep the air flowing and cool down your car when it is really hot outside and you have your car parked under the sun.
Once you have all the strips set up, it is really easy to mount, dismount the unit, so I prefer to place it on the window when I know I am leaving the car outside under the hot Florida sun.
