Koolatron Compact Kooler Review

Posted On August 12, 2012 at 6:56 pm by / 1 Comment

I couldn’t wait to acquire a Koolatron Compact Kooler through insider channels so I’ve opted to purchase one, I also purchased Koolatron 12 Volt Battery Saver so as not to over drain my battery keeping my beer cold. I already own a Radio Shack inverter that has worked for years.

I’m planning a road trip through the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming at the end of next week. I have not been satisfied with using a regular cooler as one has to deal with the ice thing, and the relatively large volume of a regular cooler takes up takes up valuable space in the Toyata Previa Minivan.

In a couple of weeks, I’ll be able to elaborate on my experience with Koolatron’s Compact Kooler.


One thought on “Koolatron Compact Kooler Review

  1. My Koolatron arrived about a little more than a week ago. I didn’t initially order the multi-purpose adapter, (the one that lets you run a DC device on AC) I’m not traveling for another week so I ordered it and it arrived last Friday. I put the multi-purpose adapter and the Kooler through it’s first test last Saturday in doors. And indeed the cooler got pretty cold. I noticed the fan sound right away, but after a while, the hum dissolved into ambient room sounds and I forgot about it. The in doors ambient room temperature was about 75F. The Adapter itself became quite warm, so make sure you have plenty of ventilation around the adapter if you’re going to use it in doors. Next I’ve used the Kooler in the van around town. I don’t even notice it running with the other ambient sounds of driving. I’m not sure I like keeping the cooler between the driver’s and passenger’s seats, so I’m using bungee cords to secure it behind the passenger’s seat. The next test will be using the power saver while car-camping. that comment will be a couple of weeks away.
