Looks like Sukkas this year will be hot and humid, can anyone recommend good portable AC?

I guess it changed, was showing 83-85 last time I checked. And 74 for some people is very hot and after a hot plate of soup……

Bh the forecast improved. Praying it gets even cooler.

Anyway, anything warmer than 65 is hot.

10k BTU would be like a drop in the bucket for my Sukkah. I am thinking that I might need 3 of those.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Might make sense to run it from on top - thru the schach (cold air sinks etc) and just let it hang

For your setup, why not just use a window unit? or if the window's not sturdy enough use the window-hose-board-thingy for a portable?
