Default How many beads?

Looking at purchasing a cooler, but was curious if a pound of beads would suffice. What does everyone use in their 52/54 quart coolers?

Enough to make sure the cooler gets to the Herf

What ever happened to the "desktop and a box"

You can never have too many cigars, they are like an investment in good times.

David, what works for me is to use the calculator and then go half as much again. For example, if the calculator said a pound, I would go a pound and a half. This seems to give a nice buffer and bounce back from when I am rooting around in a cooler and have it open for a couple of minutes. Also makes for less frequent misting of beads in the dry winter climate. Hope that this helps.

This is true. You can't have too many beads but it's important to have enough.

* How do I calculate how many beads I will need?

To calculate the volume, simply follow this formula:
Multiply the length in inches X width in inches X height in inches
(ex: 10 in. x 10 in. x 10 in. = 1000 cu. in.)
1 oz = 540 cu. in.
2 oz = 1080 cu. in.
3 oz = 1620 cu. in.
4 oz = 2160 cu. in.
5 oz = 2700 cu. in.
6 oz = 3240 cu. in.
7 oz = 3780 cu. in.
8 oz = 4320 cu. in.
9 oz = 4860 cu. in.
10 oz = 5400 cu. in.
11 oz = 5940 cu. in.
12 oz = 6480 cu. in.
13 oz = 7020 cu. in.
14 oz = 7560 cu. in.
15 oz = 8100 cu. in.
16 oz = 8640 cu. in.

I hope this helps
