Crowdfunded Coolest Cooler Redefines Portable Refrigeration

Anyone interested in doing a successful crowdfunding campaign should take a look at Ryan Grepper, as he definitely knows a recipe that works. His Coolest Cooler brings together music, drinks and fun to any outdoor location.

As even Grepper admitted, “Regular coolers are boring, break easily and are a hassle to haul around just to carry the ice. The COOLEST cooler is 60 quarts of AWESOME packed with so much fun you’ll look for excuses to get outside more often.” The Coolest Cooler does indeed want to solve all those problems, and just for fun, has a couple (or rather a dozen) of other functions.

More exactly, the Coolest Cooler includes:

  • 18V battery powered rechargeable blender
  • USB charger
  • LED lid light
  • Gear tie-down
  • Removable waterproof Bluetooth speaker
  • Cooler divider/cutting board
  • Extra wide easy rolling tires
  • Integrated storage for knife and plates
  • Bottle opener

Basically, this is all you could ask for when going to a picnic. There’s everything for preparing food and beverages, as well as for listening to music. Assuming that the battery life is decent, you only need to have a Bluetooth-capable phone with you in order to get the party started.

The crowdfunding campaign for the Coolest Cooler is currently running on Kickstarter, and with 47 more days to go, the inventor of this concept has no doubts about it becoming a mass-produced item. At press time, the project had raised $3,817,276, a whole lot more than the initial $50K goal. Anyone who pledged more than $165 as an early bird or $185 as a regular backer should receive the Coolest Cooler in February 2015.

By the looks of it, the Coolest Cooler crowdfunding campaign might be able to set a new record on Kickstarter, record that is currently hold by the Pebble smartwatch. That is, of course, if people keep backing the project at the same rate as they have until now.

Is this the ultimate cooler while on the road? Would you consider backing the project in order to get one at a later date? The rest of the world is pretty excited about this product, so I’m really curious to find out your opinion. Don’t be shy, leave a comment below!
