- How to build a Powerful Solar Powered Homemade Air Conditioner. Blows cool air for hours.This video shows the build of a Homemade Powerful ice-based air cooler that can hold large ice-blocks (up to 50lbs) and blows cool air for hours.This can be powered by 12v solar panel, 12v battery or wall current (w/ 12v ac/dc transformer).This is made using a plastic tote, 2 lighted 80mm 12v computer case fans (blue-lit/but choose your color) and 3 pvc couplers (1.5" threaded).Tote is from walmart, fans from fry's electronics/amazon and pvc couplers from home depot/lowes. When fully loaded w/ice it significantly cools an area of 8x10 to 10x10 for several hours.The fans can be easily removed/or exchanged, (any 80mm fan works so you can run different colored ones, unlighted ones, ones of different speeds etc...anytime you want)
