Every cooler needs a good tailgate and every tailgate needs a good cooler. The CoolBox cooler was built to tailgate. We dive deeper with a full review of the CoolBox cooler and its impressive list of features.
We saw the CoolBox cooler online and did a double take. I thought it was an awesome toolbox at first, but it is in fact a high performing cooler! The style of the CoolBox cooler is the first thing that will draw your eyes, but its the list of features that will make your jaw drop. Let’s take a look at some of these features.
-Heavy Duty Handles/Latches
-USB Ports X 2 (charge your phone up)
-Industrial Grade Rubber Wheels
-Marine Grade Bluetooth Speakers
-4 hour internal battery life for your tunes
Lets discuss some of these features in more depth, starting from the top. On the top of the cooler there is a slot that allows you to put your device in an upright position, so you can watch the game or maybe some of our awesome YouTube videos:)
Next up, I want to give some credit on something that most people don’t think about when they are evaluating a cooler: the latches! The latches on this cooler are the most heavy duty I’ve seen. Check out our video and you can really see the quality. If the latches are made this well then you can imagine this cooler is going to last for a long, long time.
This cooler can charge your phone! Heck, it can charge two phones at once. The CoolBox cooler has two built in USB chargers. These can save the day at the tailgate when your phone starts to die. This is my favorite feature of the cooler because I’m using my phone to post to social media, make tailgating videos and connecting with friends. Having this back up plan in my cooler gives me piece of mind.
The CoolBox cooler weighs 17 pounds, fully unloaded, and you can tote it like a toolbox, or if you really load it up it has rubber wheels and a telescopic handle, so you can roll it along.
Up front you’ll also notice a digital clock, so you’ll always know what time it is. That is a cool feature, so you don’t have to pull your phone out to check the clock. Right beside the clock is a heavy duty bottle opener that can crack open those bottled beverages to keep the party going. This is a handy feature, so you don’t have to look around for a bottle opener.
Finally, lets really get the party going with the Bluetooth sound system. There are two marine grade speakers that have 20 watts RMS power, so you can listen to some pre-game tunes from your cooler! I like this feature, but will also state that if you’re looking for speakers with BIG sound these are not the ones. For listening to the pre-game report and some tunes while you’re around the cooler, this is perfect.
We know there are some great features with this cooler, but how does it perform with ice retention? We loaded this up with ice packs and let it sit in a controlled environment. It kept ice for 3 days! Remember with these tests your individual results may vary. The ambient temperature, amount of ice, how often you open the cooler will all impact results.
The CoolBox cooler is an awesome portable cooler that is loaded with features. If you need a cooler that does more, far more than just keeping your beer cold its time to check out the CoolBox cooler.
