Frankencooler AIR With Wireless Remote

The battery powered wireless remote-controlled AIR single blower cooler is complete.

The power cell is a super high quality 4.5Ah lithium iron phosphate (LiFeP04) unit with onboard cell equalization. The wireless remote has a range of approximately 20′. This cooler is only around a pound heavier than the corded power plug model. While the pump operates at full voltage, the blower is running at 9 volts – a good compromise between airflow and noise.

In testing today (106 degrees) the battery-powered model ran for just under 2.25 hours while maintaining a near 40+ degree temperature differential throughout. At the end of the test, there was still some ice left – a testament to the Frankencooler design 🙂

Upgraded major component packages for both wired and remote versions of this cooler are now available on this site.

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.
