The crowd-pleasing Coolest is the Swiss Army knife of coolersThe Coolest Cooler is packed with a built-in blender, USB charger, Bluetooth speaker and tons of nice extras for a party on the go. But is it worth its $485 price?
[MUSIC] I've brought The Coolest, which is a new 55 quart cooler packed with loads of gadgets and tech, here at Waterfront Park in Louisville, Kentucky. The Coolest comes packed with a Bluetooth speaker, a USB charger, and one of the biggest features: a built-in blender. So you can make blended drinks while you're out partying with your friends or just having a good time at an outdoor event. Now one of my favorite features of the Coolest Is its battery. This battery packs a ton of power. It's a 20-volt battery that will last more than 16 blends of the blender while also charging whatever device you bring along. I plug my phone into the blender and made several batches of smoothies and even a margarita or two. And it did great. The bluetooth speaker was excellent. I was able to stream music from my phone about 100 feet away, and it would still stream through these speakers. The sound quality is really good as well, unless you turn it up too loud and have a lot of bass going, then it gets a little mumbled. The bad news about this coolness is the blender, which is the standout feature of this product. I found that it's getting blend to my expectations. It only has one speed and it's still left little chunks of strawberries and ice whenever I was making smoothies or other blended drinks. For its intended use, it's not a bad blender, but it really is a one trick pony that will only get you decently blended drinks. And not really do much else. Overall, the Coolest was a really fun product to play with. Its [UNKNOWN] worked really well, and even though its blender was just decent, it was a lot of fun to use. Now would I pay $485 for this cooler? That's still to be determined. It depends on how much you plan on being outside and how much you like blended drinks on the spot.
