The IceBox is a portable air conditioning system, for your car, boat or airplane.
For Pilots: No more flying in a scorching hot cabin! Turn ON the IceBox during preflight and cool your cabin down before engine start. Jump in and experience a comfortable taxi and departure to a cooler altitude. Enjoy hours of IceBox cooling power and control your comfort with the wireless remote control.
For General Use: Use the IceBox portable air conditioner in any environment, with or without available electrical power. Cool down the car or boat with the IceBox, and keep your engines off in the process.
Note: Icebox Full system includes: Icebox Wireless Model 12V/24V, Pilot Cable, Aux Battery, Exhaust Air Hose, and Wireless Remote Control .
Just ordered one of the iceBox units from all the good reviews at my local airport. We bought the gel packs and battery unit to precool the plane on the ramp, and couldn't be happier. Very impressed with the IceBox product
Great product for cooling my Beechcraft Bonanza! I bought this air conditioner for the hot summer months in Arizona, and its been working 100% since we've received it. 5 star rating from us, highly recommended - Rick
One main issue is no lock for the top to the cooler. Any turbulence could spread water all into the cockpit.
I ordered the 24V version “full system” which included the cables, converter, and battery. The unit worked fine when plugged into aircraft power via the cigarette lighter. It doesn’t work at all, as in doesn’t turn on, when trying to use battery power. And yes, I charged the battery, and switched the control box to “batt”. I’m very disappointed. I wish I had never ordered it.

Per the supplier: Yes, that is accurate.
Per supplier: 1. For Wired Unit - Simply plug the power cord into any 12V cigarette style receptacle, and the Pump and Fan will turn on together.
2. Wireless is radio frequency and has a good range of use for any cabin.
3. The cooled air does not pickup any moisture. It is using an isolated radiator to actually dehumidify the air, and pump dry, cold air into the cabin.
The aviator kit has been replaced with the Full system. Full system includes: wireless icebox, aux battery, pilot cable and air hose.
The Icebox uses the internal pump to send the water out of the reservoir. The pilot can use the internal hose to send the water outside and dumping the heavy cooler is not needed.
The Gel packs are no longer available. Per the data sheet on the web page, the supplier now suggests using ice.
