Outdoor vacations don’t have to cramp your lifestyle, by limiting you to the bare necessities when you get on the road. GoSun’s new solar-powered fridge can make your summers cool without needing as much as a cube of ice.
GoSun Chillest is an update to the company’s Chill solar cooler, released in 2019. This new solar-powered fridge has a larger, 45-liter (11.8-gallon) capacity, which in more relatable terms means it can hold up to 60 beers.
The new appliance has two separate compartments and you can use one as a fridge and the other as a freezer.
GoSun Chillest comes with some really impressive cooling abilities. It has a built-in 100 Wh (watt-hour) lithium battery that has a 10-hour lifetime. There’s also a solar table included that can be attached to the fridge and provides an additional 25W of solar power. And yet a third, optional external battery for the Chillest gives you 30 more hours of cooling power.
This portable fridge is an energy-efficient appliance that only consumes 45W, as supposed to a regular blender that has a 500W consumption or a microwave that uses 1200W, according to GoSun.
The two compartments of the Chillest come with individual temperature settings, and you can adjust them between -4 and 68 °F (-20 and 20 °C).
There are also some really nice accessories included with the Chillest, such as a bottle opener, organization baskets for your food and beverages, tie-down straps, and a cutting board. You can also opt for a Bluetooth speaker that you can attach to the side of the fridge and an umbrella.
GoSun’s Chillest portable fridge has already reached its goal of $15,000 on Indiegogo. GoSun has raised almost $160,000 so far, with 30 more days left in the campaign.
Chillest requires a $579 pledge, for just the basics, but we figure you’ll also want the solar table, which means you have to pledge $100 more. The estimated delivery time is July 2021.
