0 comments

Tips for Buying a Portable Cooler
A good cooler is a must have for any camping trip, extended road trip or a trip to the beach Coolers are mobile containers designed to keep food and beverages at the right temperature for both taste and safety reasons. All coolers are not the same and before you spend your hard earned cash you may want to consider a few things to ensure that you get a cooler that will live up to your expectations. A cooler with the right space and good performance is essential.

Look for a cooler that will provide you durability.The average portable cooler is designed for outdoor use so they are not going to be harmed if you leave them out in the rain for a while. If your cooler will be subjected to rough use you are generally looking at an item made from more expensive materials than lower cost ones but designed to withstand rough use. Ice retention is another thing to keep in mind before purchasing a cooler. As a rule of thumb large coolers with thicker walls and tops provide longer ice retention than smaller or cheaper coolers with thinner walls or lack of any type of insulation values. Look for cooler that provide a well designed drain plug, a cooler is opened frequently and the ice will eventually melt, having a drain makes it easy to get rid of excess water from melting ice. Get a cooler with the capacity that you need, if you are primarily using it for just transporting a few cold drinks and hot dogs to small picnic, you won't need a mammoth sized cooler. If your budget and storage space at home allow opt for a small one and a large one and enjoy the best of both worlds. A well made cooler with the right space is essential.
