The IceBox is a portable air conditioning system, for your airplane cabin, car, or boat.
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 Pump and Fan controls. TIP: During cruise flight, Turn OFF the water pump at altitude to sustain the longest A/C possible. In Cruise Flight Mode -- Keep the fan running to push cooler air through the cabin
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.
Full system includes: wireless icebox, aux battery, pilot cable and air hose.
One main issue is no lock for the top to the cooler. Any turbulence could spread water all into the cockpit.
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
Per the supplier: Yes, that is accurate.
Per the supplier: 2.5 hours of cooling for 10x frozen gel packs.
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.
Per the supplier: No, this does not come with the gel packs. If you go ahead and order the aviator pack, this will come with the gel packs.
1)All icebox models can be used with any 12V power source (plane, car, boat, or battery). Yes, wireless icebox comes with 15'power cord.
2) 12V wireless unit does not come with a battery. The battery is sold as an optional accessory.
3) Wireless icebox comes with 15'power cord, wireless remote, exhaust air hose, exhaust water hose, and instruction manual. The aviator kit will come with pilot cable, aux battery, charging cable and 10 gel packs.
The cooler is 10lb empty and each gel pack is 2lb. So 35 lb totally loaded with water and 10x gel packs.
The temperature the Icebox can provide is 50 degrees constant for 1-2 hours. It can go as low as 38F during taxi before departure. Gel packs are reusable, it will save the pilots a lot of money instead of buying ice all the time. They last even longer than ice, 2-3hours.
Pilot cable is an accessory to connect the icebox to BOTH the airplane and a small external battery. With a switch deciding between the two power sources. Yes gel packs, cubed ice or block ice can be used with the icebox.
