They say money can’t buy happiness. That’s true. But it can buy a motorized beer cooler that goes up to 13 MPH. And have you ever seen anyone frowning when riding one of these? Didn’t think so…
If you have been tailgating casually or are hard core and can be found in the tailgate parking lot weekly, odds are you have seen a Cruzin’ Cooler zipping around between pop-up tents and grills. From afar they look incredibly fun and knowing you can tote a 24-rack of beer and eight pounds of ice in it, tremendously practical.
We recently had the opportunity to test out a 1000 Watt Cruzin’ Cooler and put it through its paces. Check out the video review we did recently but there is a spoiler alert. We loved it and it is definitely “Tailgate Approved”.
The Cruzin’ Cooler combines two basic necessities of life, the ability to have cold food or a beverage handy along with the means to get somewhere, without walking. The Cruzin’ Cooler is light-weight, comes in two different models (500W & 1000W) and three colors options. A 10 mile range on the Cruzin’ Cooler depending on passenger weight and hill grades is possible.
The cooler is light and small enough to fit in most trunks. The cooler can be used for tailgating (obviously) hunting, sporting events, races, camping, golf or even a trip to the grocery store to keep your food cold all the way home. How many times has someone forgotten to bring the ice and you can’t pull up stakes and run to the convenience store after you have parked? With a Cruzin’ Cooler, you can take off and pick up those items your buddy forgot and be back in time for the next round of Beer Pong.
If you skipped the video, we point out the major features of the Cruzin’ Cooler. Some of the main aspects include:
- USB port
- On/Off Button at the throttle
- 1000 or 500 Watt Electric Motor
- Cargo capacity 24-12 oz. cans with 8 pounds of ice
- Top Speed up to 13 mph
- Range up to 10 miles*
- Run time approximately 45 minutes at “walking speed” *
- Battery charger included
*depending on driver weight & grade
We as tailgaters are always looking to upgrade our tailgate set-up and stand out from the rest of the parking lot. If you are one of those tailgaters, a Cruzin’ Cooler should definitely be on your list.
The Cruzin’ Cooler comes in two different models and three available colors. The size of the cooler remains the same no matter which model you choose. The power of the engine determines the amount of weight you can carry. As you can see in the video, our founder Dave, is not a small dude. (Former college football offensive lineman…) The test was on the 1000 Watt Cruzin’ Cooler and you can see he was zipping around the Angel Stadium parking lot with no issues.
Color options range from Black to Blue to Red and are available in the 500 or the 1000 Watt models. Price for a 500 Watt Cruzin’ Cooler is $489 while the 1000 Watt Cruzin’ Cooler will set you back $599.
