Clatronic CL 3671

This brand is made in Germany and is sold throughout Europe.

The CL 3671 units have electronic controls with a remote and a two speed fan. They are less efficient single hose units and are for cooling only.

Their website is not much help and does not have a stated warranty policy. clatronic.de


Our top pick is the CLIMAX VS12 portable air conditioner. It is very efficient with its state of the art inverter compressor and dual hose design. The units feature automatic condensate removal so that you do not have to constantly dump a bucket of water. The units are only available in one size but they can be purchased directly from the manufacturer and are backed by a very good guarantee.


Climax VS12


These brand offers cool only units as well as heat pumps and they are available in Algeria. They have electronic controls with a remote but use R-22 refrigerant which is not environmentally friendly.

The guarantee on the compressor is not very good when compared to other brands. cobra.com.dz


The PD1 series offers two sizes of units featuring three cooling speeds but the guarantee on the compressor is not as good as other brands.

Their ECO FRIENDLY model uses R290 refrigerant (propane) and is not recommended.

The brand is made by MIDEA and is available in Europe. mideagermany.de

Comfee PD1

COMFORT AIRE--------<1*------------1*

This brand is from HEAT CONTROLLER which is a part of MARS and manufactures other hvac systems as well. The units are available in four cooling sizes and have oscillating louvers for better air circulation. Their condensate management system eliminates the need to dump a condensate bucket. The filter is a simple washable filter which does not improve the room's air quality and the guarantee on most electrical parts is not very good when compared to other brands. The PSH-141 series is for heating as well as cooling and the warranty is better in that category. marsdelivers.com
