Your cooler may be awesome enough to keep ice for days at a time. At some point, though, that ice is going to melt and expose whatever you have stored inside to spoiling. If you’re going to camp with a car or boat in tow, might as well throw in one of Max Burton’s 53-Quart Thermoelectric Coolers to make sure your food can stay fresh throughout a stay.
While it looks an ordinary large cooler, this rig actually houses a 50.4-watt compressor that can keep your food at freezing temperatures just like the fridge and freezer you have at home. Except, you know, it comes in an ice box form factor, which makes it suitable for camping, beach outings, and other outdoor trips.
The Max Burton 53-Quart Thermoelectric Cooler comes with two inches of insulation foam inside the body, so it can function like any regular cooler for keeping food and drinks chilled during tailgates and backyard barbecues (just dump in a load of ice). It’s DC-powered, making it suitable for hooking to the power outlets on cars and boats, although it also includes an AC to DC power converter for plugging into standard AC outlets, whether at home or on a battery pack you charge using an array of solar panels.
The interior is divided into two compartments: a 1.17-cubic foot freezer area and a smaller 0.3-cubic foot refrigerated area, so there’s plenty of space to handle both frozen items and beverages. Features include spring-loaded rubber-wrapped steel handles, a LED control panel on the exterior, and temperature adjustments between -7 and 53 degrees Fahrenheit.
Available now, the Max Burton 53-Quart Thermoelectric Cooler is priced at $649.95.
