Some popular brands of air conditioners for camping include the Frigidaire Mini Window Air Conditioner and the Tripp Lite Portable Cooling/Air Conditioner, notes The Tent Air Conditioner. Another popular tent air conditioner is the IcyBreeze Portable Air Conditioner, which has a five-star rating on Bass Pro Shops.
The Frigidaire unit delivers 5,000 British thermal units (BTUs) making it strong enough for most sizes of tents. It is also quiet, has a high-power efficiency and only weighs 35 lbs. The Tripp Lite unit is even more powerful with 12,000 BTUs and has a timer that switches it off at night. The IcyBreeze is both an air conditioner and a cooler. It uses cool air from inside of the cooler and blows it inside of a tent.
