Why Not Just Use a Cooler?

This is one of the biggest questions we get at FlexFridge. It also happens to be one our favorites. The FlexFridge mini fridge is being built for a lot of reasons (portability, convenience, functionality,) but its ability to replace a cooler is part of the reason we think it’s such a cool product. People are always trying to figure out ways to make their coolers last longer.  There are an infinite number of sites telling people how to keep the ice in their coolers alive.

The FlexFridge lets you skip that process altogether. We’re shooting for truly mobile refrigeration, here!  If you don’t believe the FlexFridge is the better choice, we’ll go ahead and lay out the facts for you. See for yourself!
