I am strangely tempted although I know I will be massively underwhelmed but I wanted to chuck this out there.

Has anyone any experience if this or something similar?

I think that the word "Micro" probably sums it up.

it's cute but have no idea as to how well it will perform, especially with such a small radiator. Is it supposed to be mounted as one piece or is that just put together in that form for the sake of the picture? Also what climate is this for? If its for the annual british summer heatwave, then perhaps it will be good enough, but I doubt it would ever cut it for the Malaysian climate!

 

One thing to keep in mind if you go ahead with this, they don't specify the current requirements, but at 450W BTU its going to need at least 33 A with the engine running (14.4v). Fit a bigger alternator.
