Coolbox Reinvents The Toolbox

cover

Coolbox, the world’s smartest toolbox, today announced that it is reinventing the toolbox by combining cutting-edge technology with the classic toolbox we all remember. To fund final development of the product, Coolbox has launched an Indiegogo campaign which has raised almost $250,000 in just three weeks, demonstrating the tremendous demand for the product.  The Coolbox campaign can be seen HERE.

Coolbox will be funding on Indiegogo until March 28, 2015. Project backers can receive a Coolbox for a discounted price of $169, which is $130 less than retail price. For an extra $39, backers will receive signature-edition Coolbox tools. Manufacturing is set to begin in May with volume production beginning in June.

Coolbox features all of the classic storage and compartments you would want in a toolbox but with a modern twist to keep up with the times.  Key features of Coolbox include:

features

A 20v rechargeable lithium polymer battery with 5000 mAh to charge devices and operate small power tools while working, including drills, saws and sanders

battery

3 way splitter

Two USB ports for charging devices including phones and tablets

usb

Built-in, marine-grade 40w Bluetooth speakers that are also compatible with auxiliary cords

speakers

A retractable 12 foot power cord and three build-in 110v/220v electrical outlets

cord

LED lights mounted internally and externally to help users find and use the correct tool and provide lighting to their project

storage

With heavy duty construction, Coolbox is built to take a beating. Constructed of high impact resin, heavy duty machined aluminum latches and handles, and an air/water tight lid seal, the Coolbox is engineered to last

handles

wheels

The creators of the Coolbox found inspiration in the frustration they experienced when having to carry lights, phone chargers and speakers with them to job sites. They knew there had to be a way to integrate all of the technology that people use, need and enjoy every day into a classic toolbox design.

“It is kind of shocking that it’s taken this long for toolboxes to catch up with technology,” said Coolbox co-Founder Chris Engelo. “People who work with toolboxes likely use technology in every other area of their life, so there’s no reason for tools to be stuck in the past.”
