The heat of the summer season means beaches, barbeques and lots of brews, something the crowdfunding world has always been cognizant of with projects like the Coolest Cooler and the Kreweser. But while these offerings meant easier ways to transport food and beverages along with extra features like USB chargers and wheels, none address the age old problem of warm drinks, aka the bane of a get-together.
The HYPERCOOL portable cooler address this problem using the magic of physics. It can be filled up with water, frozen overnight, and then be used to rapidly cool cans or tall boys of one’s favorite beverage. How? Using an external motor that spins the can over that bed of ice. The friction cools the beverage in just 60 seconds; wait 30 more seconds and it’ll be ice cold.
It’s battery powered as well, with every pair of AA batteries capable of cooling 200 cans — not too shabby. Each HYPERCOOL is $89 and is expected to ship in December 2016 should its flexible Indiegogo campaign raise $50,000 by August 5th, 2016.
Compared to the Ice Jack, the HYPERCOOL cools more cans (although not THAT many more) much faster using less batteries, making it a far better alternative. It’s extremely portable nature makes it a perfect fit for a wide variety of outings, as well, making its versatility one of its star traits.
