[heading]Introduction[/heading]

Please note, this mini review is just a personal highlight of a great gadget

You guys may have read about our coverage of Cool IT Systems at CeBIT 2007 here. The guys over at Cool IT Systems were so nice as to send me the most ingenious marketing gadget I have seen in a long time - the Beverage Chiller. This was actually created for marketing puroses but was such a big hit, that Cool IT Systems is selling them for just under 30 USD a piece. As soon as I saw it I wanted one. While Austria is not the hottest country in the world, it is by far one of the most humid (my personal opinion ;)) so I am grateful to have such a cooler within reach for my Red Bull or other energy drink while writing for TPU! :D


It comes packaged in hard plastic and you better have some scissors at your disposal :)

The TEC cooler works great and is actually much cooler than I expected. The little fan in the back is noticable but not annoying at all. I plugged it into my Xbox 360 which powers the USB port even if the console is off.

Just wanted to show you guys this puppy...this is a sweet and great looking gadget!

This has been a mini review from Darksaber -> for you!! :D

you should do a couple tests of temperature...maybe? I know it's a mini, but maybe a little less mini??

Well accoring to the packaging it runs at 45 ° Fahrenheit, which is around 7° Celsius. this should be plenty to keep a drink cool. Size of the drink does matter of course, but a can or 0.5 L bottle should be perfectly fine.

I cannot measure the temperature (yet) as I currently do not have the hardware to test temperature (or sound for that matter). That is why you will not see a CPU Cooler review from me. That all may change within the next few months.

cheers
