I honestly got this one  in for testing thinking it was far too good to be true.  I was wrong.  Within a few minutes of putting in 4 AA batteries and turning the Ambi on, the metal surface was icy cold.  The idea is that you can chill your neck or any part of your body to lower your temperature and introduce some cool relief from the heat.  It works incredibly well and comes with a handy neoprene pouch making it easy to take it to go.  Ambi is great for injuries, bug bites, sunburn relief all in the palm of your hand.
