With the intense summer heat outside, sweaty armpits may be unavoidable for some, especially for those who simply can’t be bothered by antiperspirant or deodorant products. It’s a good thing some Japanese geniuses have created an interesting alternative for the sweatier among us.
The “Under the Armpit Cooling Device” (Waki no Shita Kura in Japanese) is a portable armpit cooler created by a Japanese firm to keep underarms cool and dry all day even when doing outdoor activities, according to RocketNews24.
Developed by a company called Thanko, the clip-on mini-air-conditioner attaches to a user’s sleeve and blasts streams of air to keep armpits dry.
The clips are powered by two AAA batteries or by a USB charger and produces at least five to nine hours of non-stop cooling effect, depending on use. The units also have three adjustable levels of air-blowing intensity.
While the tiny machines are marketed to help circulate air into the user’s armpits, the clip-on coolers can also be strapped almost anywhere a user wishes to feel refreshed.
Thanko, which sells a variety of electronic cooling devices, sells the “Under the Armpit Cooling Device” for $38 a pair, making it is easy to grab a couple more for a more refreshing day under the sun.
