12 Aug The Coolbox Entertainment Cooler Makes Cookout Entertainment Easy
So you’re a fan of cookouts and parties by the beach. There’s nothing quite like a cooler full of cold beers, some burgers on the grill, and some summer tunes on in the background. Sound like your idea of fun? Then you need a Coolbox – an all-in-one “entertainment cooler.” Yeah, we’ve seen a lot of cool coolers in our day, but we’ve yet to see an Entertainment Cooler. With dual, marine-grade 20W RMS 80hm speakers, Bluetooth and USB charging ports built right in – so you can enjoy those tunes and keep your phones all charged up while simultaneously reaching for a cold beer.
The Coolbox is built from thick, durable polypropylene, with an injected commercial-grade polyurethane foam inside for serious insulation. How serious? Coolbox says it will keep your drinks ice cold for a full 5 days – which is more than enough for virtually any party. And, it has room for 17.25 quarts – that’s 22 cans or 12 pounds of ice.
There’s a bottle opener built right in underneath the lock, and in front a compartment for keeping valuables (think, phone and keys) dry and safe; it’s rated to IPX4. There’s even an LED clock displaying the time, charge status and battery life. And when it’s time to move the Coolbox, simply pull out the telescoping, suitcase-style handle and wheel it away.
Powering all this is an internal 11.1V/2.5 Ah lithium polymer batter, which can also be recharged via USB. The Coolbox is one of the cooler things we’ve seen in a while. No pun intended. We can’t guarantee it’s quite Otterbox or Yeti caliber when it comes to indestructibility and reliability, but we can guarantee that wherever you take it – the beach, the backyard, out camping for the weekend – this cooler will make the party a bit more refreshing.
