Summers are already here in the country. And with it begin our desperate attempts to save ourselves from the searing summer heat. When the sun itself is in a very sunny mood and refuses to spare us from its blazing heat, one automatically tries grabbing onto whatever cooling resource or gadget comes in hand for rescue. Hence, to take care of your summer needs, we present to you our list of the top 10 summer gadgets of 2022 to keep yourself cool during the mango season. From small and innovative solutions to large one-time investments, you have a variety of options to pick from, as per your needs.
The one to make it to the number one position on our list of the top 10 summer gadgets of 2022 to keep yourself cool had to be an air conditioner. As you know, one time investments work a long way. So if you decide to invest in an AC once and for all, we would recommend you to go for a split AC. Split ACs are typically designed for cooling larger spaces. They are quieter than their window AC counterparts and cool the room much faster thanks to their better air distribution technology. Some premium AC brands in India include LG, Lloyds, Hitachi and Carrier.
One of the top AC models that we recommend is Lloyd’s 1.5-ton 5-star inverter split AC which comes with an anti-viral and a PM 2.5 filter. It has a claimed 100% copper condenser coil that helps in better cooling and requires low maintenance. Moreover, it comes with a smart 4-way swing, turbo cool, low gas detection, clean filter indication and a chrome deco strip. It has a 5-star energy rating and is priced at Rs 40,500.
Desert Air Cooler
In case you don’t want to go directly for an air conditioner and instead are looking for a budget-friendly option, you can consider getting a desert air cooler. One of the highest-rated bestsellers on Amazon is the 75L Crompton Ozone Desert Air Cooler. It is portable, is equipped with wood wool cooling pads, has 3-way speed settings for air-speed control, auto air-swing with 4-way deflection and a water level indicator for easy monitoring.

Portable Hanging Neck Fan
Next up on our list is an even more budget friendlier option. Portable hanging neck fans, that are usually used while playing sports, work well in maintaining your body temperature and keeping the heat at bay. These can come in super handy, especially during summers, while riding a bus, travelling, walking outdoors in the scorching summer heat, fitness, camping, shopping or for indoor usage. It has a hands-free headphone design, 360-degree rotation, a built-in 1800 mAh rechargeable battery and is priced at Rs 699.

Cool Mist Humidifier
A cool mist air humidifier relaxes and moistens the air around you while working as a heat exchanger and neutralising unpleasant odours. Not only that, but it can also act as an aroma diffuser if sufficient humidification is provided. It can ideally fit in any tiny area, be it your car space, study table, bedroom, office, etc. It is priced at just Rs 399.

Somewhere between a desert cooler and a neck fan comes another option alongside a portable mini ac, i.e., a desk fan. The highest-rated on Amazon is the Zemic 1.5W rechargeable table fan with a 21 SMD LED light and a 2-step speed function.
