Default Re: Finally Getting A Cooler

I have two of those that I repurposed for overflow troop cigars.
They worked far better for holding humidity than the great big honkin marine igloo cooler I have, and I used very few beads.
We have 5 or 6 coolers, for some odd reason. Those cubes are the ones we use when we take a cooler anywhere. They've just been better all around for everything.
They're cheap, too.

Default Re: Finally Getting A Cooler

Thanks all for the pointers. I really want the 150qt. that Amazon has for a great price but I'm suffering from proper storage area. My man-cave isn't properly climate controlled to hold a coolerdor which is necessitating the cooler going into a reach-in closet. Small footprint and tall is more preferable at this point than wide and low.

But I really do appreciate all the feedback.

Not sure what this has to do with anything. The advantage of a cooler is it works irregardless of external conditions.

I don't know about that. I know that I wouldn't want to leave my cooler of smokes in the garage during the heat of a Texas Summer. Any type of container left in a non climate controlled space is going to warm up/cool down inside, even one of those high dollar Yeti coolers.

The lanai that was closed in that i made my man cave into gets pretty warm during the summer. I'm able to leave the A/C off until it gets unbearable for me when I'm doin stuff in here. If I had to make sure this room stayed at around 70 all year, my power bill would be insane. It's already close to $450 a month from June - October.

Alrighty. Got the cooler. Where do y'all find those little fans? I've looked on Amazon but all of the battery powered fans have a battery life of only 55 hours.

That doesn't seem right. Help!

***EDIT*** Nevermind. I did some more reading and it was made apparent to me those Oust fans (FOUND EM!!) would just be waste of $.

I use an RV refrigerator fan (For Example). I get more like a month.

As an alternative you can run an electrical or USB cable through the drain plug and then seal the drain plug around the cable (putty or silicone sealant). I've done both.

Default Re: Finally Getting A Cooler

haha, I misread this, I thought it said "finally getting a little cooler" and I was thinking, "Ha, for me its finally getting
a little WARMER". Got a gift from my friends in LA and TX today in the form of a southerly flow, and I woke up at
24 degrees and just had lunch at 52.

Default Re: Finally Getting A Cooler

David I use the 150qt marine cooler and I don't notice a huge difference in humidity levels between the top and bottom. I use two, 1lb bags of Heartfelt beads, one on the bottom shelf and one on the top. I also have a digital hygrometer at the top and bottom of the cooler and while they are close to the beads they are not right next to them. I keep them calibrated and they are always within a percentage point of each other.
I know there are a lot more experienced people who say fans make a difference, but that's just what I've seen so far.

Default Re: Finally Getting A Cooler

So, um... yeah.




I'll be buying a 150.



By spacing out my stock so they aren't stacked so tightly they get limited air circulation, I filled this 70qt.


(((SIGH))) Wasted that money...
