The IcyBreeze cooler is a portable air conditioner. Fill it with ice and it keeps drinks cold all day long, but add a little water and extend the hose on top and suddenly it becomes a portable cordless air conditioner. "Built into the IceBreeze's hinged lid is a radiator that sucks up icy cold water from the bottom of the cooler and uses it to chill air being pumped through the system by a three-speed fan. The cold air leaving the flexible tube is guaranteed to be up to 35 degrees colder than the air outside the cooler, and on its lowest fan setting it can run for up to seven hours on its rechargeable battery."
