I think nicejits wants an Air conditioner even though he has mentioned Air Cooler. An air cooler in Mumbai would be a nice and expensive way to breed mosquitos!!

How can a cooler actually work in a coastal area like Bombay?

The principle of a desert cooler's working is the difference between dry bulb and wet bulb temperature = Relative humidity.

The more the difference = more cool sensation.
Which requires a less RH.

No point buying a cooler in Bombay!

Coolers work best in hot dry climates for eg Jaipur, and can be pretty effective till 34-35 Celsius temperature,s

I myself find custom made air coolers to be more affevtive than the branded ones. the reason being the custom made coolers have larger mesh area hence more cooling takes place. Also the fan can be of higher RPM so more area can be cooled

How effective would an air cooler (portable one) be in bangalore.
I am thinking of getting one, due to the prevalent heat conditions this year.

A.C. is not an option as i am in a rented house, right now.

Any suggestions

Air coolers are more effective in Bangalore, but the only problem with dealers in bangalore that they wont reccomend for a room cooler over AC. They know IT guys will fall in easily and they have enough money(wrong assumption).
Best air cooler is symphony from my experience. with Justdial.com you can search and find a dealer

Only Few Brands are available here like "McCoy"(from Meenumix company?),Usha,Kenstar,Bajaj IIRC of which some have a knob called "Humidity Control"?.My Budget is < 5000 Rupees BTW.I wanted One Which Can be Serviceable Locally after Warranty too.Symphony is not available Here.

PS:No Plans for A/C's

I have been using Kenstar (honeycomb) now for the past three years, it does a reasonable job of cooling but for that, it is preferable to fill ice in the loading tray and one should also ensure that there is a supply of fresh air from behind the fan of the cooler. Honeycomb models work better than the ones with the wet pads.
