Bixby based IcyBreeze portable air conditioner is a wheeled ice cooler that doubles as an eco-friendly portable air conditioner which can be used for camping or on the sidelines of sporting events in the summer heat. The cooler, which has ample room for food and beverages, has a rechargeable battery in the lid that can last up to six hours. It features a two-cup holder and three-speed fan with a low, medium and high setting that blows cold, dry air like an air conditioner. It’s all green and has no Freon. The cold air is created by using the ice water inside the cooler.
If the cooling system is not used, the ice in the cooler will last for up to seven days at 90 degree temps, according to the company.The IcyBreeze looks like a standard cooler you’d pack full of drinks and sandwiches and wheel onto the beach but it is also an air conditioner. It uses a fan, along with the chilled air inside the cooler, to blow a constant breeze of cool air up to 25 miles per hour at up to 35 degrees below the outside temperature. It has a rechargeable battery, so you can stay cool whether you’re on the beach, camping, or tailgating.
Available in blue, green, or red plastic, it has a gray lid and handle, and a pair of black wheels. The plastic is of the thick, lightly textured variety, and the cooler has a well-built, premium feel. There are two cup holder indents on top of the lid, as well as three-stop wheel to control fan speed. Next to that are ports to connect the power adapter as well as an optional corded remote. There is also an integrated vent and flexible air hose.
The IcyBreeze is a midsize 38-quart cooler. From the outside it measures 18.5 by 23.5 by 16.25 inches (HWD), while the interior measures 11 by 11.25 by 18.5 inches (HWD). To give you an idea of capacity, it can hold up to 30 pounds of ice, or up to 49 cans. It’s a bit heavy, with a dry weight of 21 pounds, but the pull-out handle on the side makes it relatively simple to tote around. The base model of the cooler comes with an 110V battery charger. The built-in battery takes up to 5 hours to reach a full charge, after which it can last for up to 6 hours on low, 4 hours on medium, or 2.5 hours on high. When not in use, the battery should last for 30 to 60 days. When plugged in, a light on the charger will turn solid green to let you know you’ve reached a full charge. If you want to run the cooler continuously, IcyBreeze offers both wall and car power supplies.
First you have to fill the cooler with two quarts of cold tap water. “Minimum Water Level” line marked clearly on the inside of the cooler wall. After that you can add food, beverages, and as much ice as you’d like, as long as you can close the lid of the cooler completely. Once you have power, water, and ice, you’re ready to begin cooling. When you flip the switch on top of the cooler into one of three fan speeds, chilled water starts circulating through a radiator. The fan draws air through the radiator, chilling it in the process, and the air is then blown out of the vent or through the hose on top of the cooler. It takes about 20 seconds after turning it on for the cool air to kick in, but once it does, it can get up to 35 degrees cooler than the temperature outside of the cooler.
If you’re sitting next to the cooler you can feel the breeze by opening the vent on the side. But if you’re standing up, or you’d like more direct control over the airflow, you can also pull out the accordion-style air hose and point it wherever you’d like. The hose itself measures 18 inches, so you can’t exactly get it right up in your face, but the flow of air is pretty powerful, especially on the high setting.The unit also features a plug hole at its base for easy drainage.
