what is not a propane cooler

  • An ice box is like a refrigerator, but without a motor and condenser. Simply an insulated box which is kept cold with blocks of melting ice.
  • A cooler the longstanding traditional favorite of summer outdoor living, the cooler is the warm-weather workhorse of keeping your food cold. Just add ice and repeat. Until you run out of ice.
  • A piezoelectric refrigerator everyone is seeing these at the big box stores lately, a cheap refrigerator that kind-of sort-of keeps your food cool-ish. They run on a piece of electronics called a 'peltier heat pump'. Even wikipedia describes this components main disadvantage is that it "cannot simultaneously have low cost and high power efficiency". In other words, a piezo cooler does not work very well for this purpose.


aluminium bottlesUse on the go! Our cooler is ightweight and compact with rugged gray plastic exterior and able to stand up to normal wear and tear better than some traditional coolers. And you never have to break camp to go get ice again.

Comes complete with AC cord and plug, DC cord and accessory adapter. Just add propane. It uses the same propane and tank that fuels your barbeque grill. At a half pound of propane consumed in a day, your typical 20 pound propane tank will last for 40 days. Put another way, if you ran it year-round for an entire year, night and day, 24-7, it would need refueling 9 times!

We have had calls for this product for many years, and now finally we have them! Great propane cooler at a fraction of the cost of a propane refrigerator.
