Dados, a new concept of portable air conditioner

dados xl

New entry in 2012 Argo Consumer range of air conditioners, Dados is a new concept of mobile air conditioner, matching the latest technology with functionality and aesthetics.

Thanks to its small size and its minimal and funny design, Dados is a real piece of furniture perfectly blending in the contexts of modern furniture and standing out as a special object in the more traditional ambient, never tiring.


It’s a cube of about 50 cm of height, simple and elegant, ideal for use, why not, also a small table.

Classified in energy class A, all the models of the Dados (9/13/XL) work in cooling, dehumidifying and ventilation modes.

In addition, the XL (extra luxury) model can also heat and dehumidify up to low temperature (5°C). They are all very easy to use: to change from cooling to heating (dados xl), for example, just turn the air conditioner of 180° on itself, connect the hose, select the heating function on the remote control and start working. A special system makes particularly simple the application of the hose.

dados xl – mat black, “velvet effect” – dados 9/13, shiny white,”high-gloss” effect


Made with quality materials and innovative treatments, Dados is available in two versions: the first, white shiny, “high gloss” effect with front and rear light gray, provides models 9 (9000 BTU/h) and 13 (13000 BTU/h); the second one, with top and sides in mat black, “velvet” effect, and front and back dark gray, provide just model XL – eXtra Luxury – 13000 BTU/h, caracterized by luxury amenities, full features and touch screen remote control.

Air filter on both sides to ensure air quality and maximum efficiency

 Not only … the design of Dados range, ergonomic and intuitive, also makes very simple tasks such as extracting the filter to wash: remove the side panels and extract the filters!

Compared with 9 and 13 models, Dados XL can also work as a big capacity dehumidifier and up to low temperature (from 5° C) – dehumidifiers normally work from 16° C of room temperature.

Dados XL is also equipped with a drain pump for condensate elimination which enables to empty easily the internal tank when it is full. It’s enough the touch of a button … and no more the trouble of lifting the weight of the full tank … also recovering the demineralised water obtained by drying, very useful for the iron or to wet plants!
