If you’re looking for a sign to replace your old, grimy cooler, this is it! Introducing the GoSun Chillest, a solar-powered cooler that can keep your food and drinks cold for up to ten hours. Created by the same company behind this solar oven, this electric cooler basically works just like a portable fridge-freezer combo. And the best part? It doesn’t even require ice to do its job!
Unlike regular coolers which use ice to keep their contents cold, the GoSun Chillest generates power from the sun for ice-free refrigeration. It features a 20-watt solar panel attachment which you can easily mount to the unit to power it. This certainly comes in handy if you’re out in the woods with no access to a power outlet. The panel even doubles as an elbow table, so you can use it when eating or drinking as it gathers energy from the sun.
This travel chiller has a capacity of 45 liters—enough to store food and drinks for a jam-packed day outdoors. It features dual cooling zones with a temperature control ranging from -4°F to 68°F (-20°C to 20°C). So, it actually gets so cold that you can use it to make some ice cubes. It even comes with two organization baskets, so you can make the most out of your cooler’s space.
This solar-powered cooler features dual cooling zones, so one compartment keeps your beverages chilled while the other keeps your meats and desserts frozen
Aside from its solar panel attachment, this portable chiller also features three more power options. For starters, it comes with a built-in 100wh lithium-ion battery which can last up to ten hours. You can also plug it into an AC or DC outlet for unlimited cooling all day long. Consuming only 45W of power, it makes an efficient alternative refrigeration solution for boats, campervans, cars, and even tiny homes.
Best of all, you can plug it into an external power bank (sold separately), so you can use it for longer hours. With one full charge, GoSun’s portable 266 wh power bank gives the cooler an additional 30 hours of power. So, this extends the unit’s cooling duration to up to 40 hours when combined with its built-in battery.
Indeed, this compact dual-zone cooler is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities—be it in your backyard, at the beach, or even in the woods. It also comes with other thoughtful inclusions like a bottle opener, a chopping board dock, a storage pouch, some waste bag hooks, and inside lighting.
And to ensure optimal portability, it’s also equipped with a set of all-terrain wheels, a telescopic handle, and some tie-down hooks for straps. Other optional add-ons include an umbrella attachment and a Bluetooth speaker, for maximum comfort and fun under the sun!
The GoSun Chillest is currently open for crowdfunding through Indiegogo. According to the company, they’ll begin shipping out the units by July, just in time for summer. Feel free to check out the project’s page to know more about the available early bird packages.
