Don’t let a week of rain and dark clouds lull you into a false sense of security about the weather, because the sun is back.

This week will see us hit heights of 30° and, though heatwaves look a little different at the moment, that means we’ll be soaking up the rays as much as we can - plastered in SPF of course.

Cue a week of BBQs, Aperol Spritz’s in the sun (perhaps at your new garden tiki bar) and, let’s face it, a week of very sticky nights trying to fall asleep in the sweltering heat.

Yes, that’s right, anyone who remembers the heatwave of 2019 will know that it didn’t come without its downsides and keeping cool (particularly at night) was one of them.

However, a mini cooler doing the rounds on TikTok might have the answer to our prayers, if the response it’s been getting is anything to go by.

User @iwannaburrito posted a video of herself unboxing the nifty mini cooler, alongside the caption: “TikTok made me buy it. On amazon for $52!!!”

The video has received over two million views and 381,000 likes. It also boasts over 1,500 comments from other social media users who either have the mini cooler themselves or covet it.

But what actually is it?

The gadget itself is the Duomishu Personal Air Conditioner Fan, currently available for £45.99 on Amazon, and is a 3 in 1 portable air conditioner fan equipped with air cooler, humidifier, and LED mood light.

Sounds fancy, right? Well it is.

The air conditioner features a ice tray compartment, which you fill with ice in order to create an icy breeze without creating a high electricity bill.

This small air conditioner weighs only 800g has a handle to carry it everywhere, great for small places such as home offices (simply pop it on your desk), reading corners, bedrooms, attics and basements.

The nifty cooler can run for up to eight hours at a time and has three adjustable speeds depending on when and what you’re using it for.

Plus, the special sleep mode can adjust the wind speed to ensure that the noise is less than 45 decibels so it doesn’t disrupt your slumber.

That sounds, quite literally, dreamy.

Shoppers on Amazon have been quick to praise the handy gadget, calling it “absolutely brilliant”.

“I purchased this as it has an ice tray compartment which allows the air to feel like air conditioning without all the cold chemicals and high electricity bills,” one cool customer wrote. “It’s absolutely brilliant and whilst it is probably suitable for smaller sized rooms it is perfect for cooking down when hot.

“I love the fact it is clean air compared to the usual air conditioners and it doesn’t consume a lot of electricity at all so I don’t have to worry keeping it on for long periods! Really pleased with it. No more summer nights being hot and bothered, yay!” added another.

Thanks, TikTok, you’ve done it again.
