: The SolarCooler :
The world’s first solar-powered refrigerating cooler
A new technology revolutionizing Vaccine Transport and redefining the beach cooler
We have developed a revolutionary technology that we hope will significantly impact how vaccines are transported around the world.
Help us get the Solar Refrigeration movement off the ground! We believe
that in this era, access to refrigeration is not a privilege, but a right for the
entire world to enjoy. This is why we have worked so hard designing and refining our technology into a portable rugged package for anyone to use. Whether you are transporting valuable vaccines
across the globe, or keeping your beer cold on a relaxing summer day.
: Adopt a Vaccine SolarCooler in Action :
There are many ways that you can help us make a difference. we are offering the opportunity to sponsor a pilot run of our first Vaccine SolarCoolers thought medical camps in Africa. as an individual, you can sponsor the Vaccine SolarCooelers by having your name or phrase printed on the cooler for $2 per letter. for example "in loving memory of Helen Taylor" printed on the side of our Vaccine SolarCooler will help get this project off the ground. if you are a corporation and want to be a sponsor, you can put a logo on the cooler for $100 per square inch. Each sponsor will be able to track their Vaccine SolarCoolers through their journey, and receive photo updates of the SolarCoolers in action.
: Robin Hood business model :
A percentage of each SolarCooler sale will go towards providing those in developing countries without the luxury of a power grid with their very own SolarCooler.
Are you an Explorer, Tailgater, boater, or overall gadget buff?
Below is some information on the consumer version of the SolarCooler!
Who needs ice? Make your own with the power of the sun! Enjoy refrigeration that’s clean, green, and free!
...Did we mention it can also power your USB and 12v DC accessories?
Check out the production model with optional beach wheel kit, featured at CES:

How can you help?
This development has gone as far as it can go, and now we need your help! The SolarCooler is ready for production, but that last funding hurdle still needs to be jumped. This is where you guys come in: if enough people purchase a SolarCooler, I can flip the switch on for manufacturing not only the recreational cooler, but the cooler that will make medical vaccine transport possible.
We need to sell a minimum of 250 coolers to break even on the costs of materials and tooling that it takes to produce the SolarCooler. Once we reach our goal (and hopefully, exceed!), we can start cranking away on manufacturing and shipping!
So what's the impact that portable, solar-powered refrigeration can have? Good question… its huge, and the benefits span much further than cold beer for the beach. We intend implement our technology into the cold chain, transporting vaccines safely around the world and into the hands of those in need. Much of this world is without the luxury of a power grid at their fingertips, and we plan on providing these developing countries with the basic need of refrigeration for their perishables and medications. Aside from this, we can also bring light into their home at night by powering LED lighting that’s plugged into the SolarCooler.
And in the consumer market, our goal is to change how the world perceives refrigeration and power. In this day and age, we believe everyone should have the luxury of portable refrigeration. The SolarCooler allows you to be free to explore, camp, boat, tailgate, and hit the beach without worrying about ice or running out of cell phone battery. Need ice for a game, day drink, or margarita? The SolarCooler will make the ice AND power the blender.
Interested in technical details on how this baby works?
We use our advanced power path management circuity to harmonize the load demands of the refrigeration process, the inflow of photovoltaic energy, and energy storage in the internal batteries. The SolarCooler uses a highly efficient variable speed vapor-compression refrigeration cycle. Our solar panels are high quality flexible and durable.
