It is a wearable device compatible with both inner and outer wearable which can be controlled by your smartphone making it as portable as it can get.
Reon pocket is no less than a dream come true. You don’t have to get all fussed up in this scorching heat.

The pocket-sized device can be worn on the back of the neck with dedicated underwear controlled with the application. You can control the application through mobile phone according to one’s need.
The Peltier element adopted by this device can be cooled and heated effectively. This element is basically made for the car and wine coolers as they use less power if used for a long time. But with this element, the device uses a newly developed technology to make it wearable.
The inner wares for the wearable air conditioner are found in S, M and L sizes but as of now, it is only made for men. Also, it has come up with the pocket at the back to insert the device.
