Arizona Cards Tailgators

Drop by and say hi at State Farm Stadium before the Cards/Bears game next Sunday and check out Frankencooler in person.

We’ll be in the (Grey) East Preferred parking lot (east of stadium) somewhere around the 55 marker – look for the black Frankencooler flag (below) on the flagpole by our blue tent.

PS: If you’re a Bears fan, we will likely murder you and steal your stuff.

Frankencooler AIR With Wireless Remote

I completed a wireless remote-controlled AIR single blower cooler a couple weeks ago. It is equipped with a super high quality 4.5Ah lithium iron phosphate (LiFeP04) power cell. The wireless remote works great with a range of over 20′ and the battery and module only adds around a pound to this lightweight unit.

The only thing I am still playing with is fan speed. With no step-down, the blower runs at full speed (tons of airflow but fairly loud), so I am experimenting with varying epoxy-encapsulated voltage reducers to find a good compromise between airflow and noise.

I plan on making a video of cooling and duration tests of both AIR coolers when I have some free time in the near future.

In response to requests, I am still considering selling completed AIR units if I can do so at a reasonable profit (ie: building one in hours versus days) – we’ll see.

Extreme Temperature Test

Testing my ice chest air conditioner on a hot, humid day over a period of 7 hours.

Notes: The cooler was holding 35 lbs of ice and one gallon of water.
The actual outdoor temperature in the shade according to my infrared thermometer was 105 degrees (temp sensor under intake grill was in direct sun for a period, indicating 111). Humidity was 70% average.
The cooler was not moved or opened during the test. The camera was removed from the tripod and brought inside between takes.
