Works fine


The installation instructions in the manual are pretty vague; make sure you have everything oriented correctly and make a complete dry run before duct taping anything in - The window adapter does not have any insulation value; you will need to at least...

Seems to cool fine ; LEDs go off after a short period so it does not light up the room at night ; No leaks so far

The fan is fairly loud and it runs continuously when in AC mode; you can't really leave this unit on all the time ; The window setup is a problem if you have a lip on the inside side of the window sill. I had to put foam tape on the bottom to raise it...

It Works.


Since we're still in our first month of ownership we're not sure how much the bill is going to go up because of it. Also when the compressor spins up, it takes a substantial amount of energy that might (will) cause an electric sag on components on the...

Decent cooling capacity ; AC/Dehumid/Fan modes ; Remote (more on this in the cons section) ; Looks good ; Window kit looks like it should work for most situations (it did in mine) ; Has wheels ; Havn't had any issue with water/condensation leakage

Pretty loud (to be expected) ; Difficult to program with the harmony remote for some reason. (not a unit con but just weird) ; Isn't worth retail price . Don't buy it unless it's a bit cheaper ; Isn't listed on B&D site so hard to find information...

Save the Box


Save the box this comes in, you'll need it to ship it back ! It worked great for 1 week then quit blowing cold air. EVEN BETTER, Black & Decker doesn't even LIST this model as being made by them, so just try to get help thru them.

added cooling


This unit is in a room that has alot of appliances and hardware that give off lots of heat and a flat roof. After installing the BPC08CJ Portable air conditioning unit my main AC now only has to work half the time.

A Blast of Cool!!


Wow. What a blast of cold air I received from this Black and Decker air conditioner! The unit cooled down the bedroom in just a few minutes and kept the temperature cool for a number of hours.

Cool Product


This product works great! Had a little bit of difficulty setting up the window venting feature but other than that it works great. Blows cold air like it is intended to do. I would recommend this product to friends and family!

Good value for price


The unit is heavy and slightly louder than your avg window unit but its good quality and easy to use/maintain. Best for a room of around 300 sq ft. The only improvement I would suggest to the B&D engineers would be to make the window bracket wider to...
