CoolIT Systems USB Beverage Chiller ReviewDesja - December 4, 2007
Ever have a day when it was just too hot to be outside doing something productive? Or perhaps you are stuck inside your office building in front of your PC, looking at everyone outside enjoying themselves on a nice hot day. While cursing them, you are stuck inside with the A/C on the fritz, drinking your warm coke - or for those of us that are self employed and our office is at home - beer.
Is there anything out there that can save you from this, let's just say “body temperature” warm beverage? CoolIT Systems USB Beverage Chiller says it can. Let’s see if it lives up to its name. Will my beverage actually stay “chilled?”
When I received the CoolIT Systems USB Beverage Chiller, all of the contents could be seen clearly on the outside. The front talks about the compact size of the beverage chiller and lists its ability to chill to 45 degrees F. The packaging also states that the beverage chiller does not use chemicals or Freon to cool. I was happy to see this knowing my past history with the dropping of mice, keyboards, and almost everything else on my desk. These objects did not pose a threat to my health by dropping them; whereas dropping something containing chemicals doesn’t sound too good for my health. The back of the package lists the installation procedure.
When I took the CoolIT Beverage Chiller out of its packaging and held it next to my Logitech G5, the chiller was only slightly larger, meaning it is compact enough to throw into your laptop bag.
