With the increasing popularity of outdoor activities, whether it is long-day camping or a one-day outing, picnic, fishing, if you can carry a suitable ice bucket, it will not only help keep the ingredients fresh, but also keep the drinks cold. The feeling of fun is quite convenient. And many brands of outdoor products on the market have launched different types of products, ranging from materials, coldness, capacity to carrying methods. It is always difficult to choose.

lect the appropriate type according to the purpose of use or occasion

In terms of material selection, ice Cooler can be roughly divided into two types: "soft" and "hard". Both have their own strengths, and the selection will be different according to different purposes or occasions. The following will further explain to you. introduce.

Hard type: suitable for long-term outdoor activities such as camping and fishing

The sales trend of ice buckets on the market is mainly sturdy and durable hard type. Its charm lies in its excellent airtightness and cold preservation effect, which can keep ingredients and drinks at a certain low temperature for a long time. It can also be used as a substitute for a refrigerator in hot weather, and it can be widely used outdoors or in places where electricity is not available. It can be said to be very convenient.

Due to its strong impact resistance, it is more durable outdoors, and some products can even be used as temporary tables and chairs, which are indispensable equipment for groups who love to engage in camping or fishing activities. However, this type is also accompanied by a certain weight. It is recommended to choose a style that is easy to store and carry as much as possible, which can be more convenient in use.

Soft type: suitable for short-term outdoor activities such as picnics and watching games

If you prefer a light and soft material that is easy to carry, it is recommended to choose a soft type. Although its airtightness is worse than that of the rigid type, if it is only used for a short time, then this type of product is sufficient. Especially for people with less strength, the soft ice bucket is also less burdensome to carry, whether it is a round-trip activity, picnic, children's sports meeting and other occasions can easily come in handy.

In addition to being convenient to carry, some styles can also be folded and stored, which will not occupy the space at home at all; in the event of a power outage caused by natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes, they can also be deployed at any time for backup, which is quite flexible. However, due to the limited effect of airtight cooling, it is basically not recommended to use it for a long time, but if it is used to deal with the food that needs to be refrigerated or frozen on weekdays, I believe it is more than enough.

Pay attention to the cooling effect of thermal insulation materials

The cooling effect of ice cooler varies according to different thermal insulation materials; especially the hard type has a variety of materials, so please pay more attention when purchasing. If you're going out for a short number of days or times, opt for a lightweight and affordable expanded styrene material; although less effective and durable, it's fine for infrequent home use or short-term leisure activities.

If you want to pursue a higher cooling effect, you can choose a polyurethane foam material, which can cope with at least two days and one night of camping trips. In addition, when purchasing, it is best to choose a product with a high sealing lid and a thickness of at least 6cm of thermal insulation material, which will be more secure in use.

On the other hand, the types with high cooling capacity are mostly thermal insulation vacuum materials, which not only have a light and thin structure, but also have excellent thermal insulation effect, which can maintain low temperature for a long time regardless of food or cold drinks, and can also reduce the purchase of additional cooling agents. expenses. Although its price is slightly high, it is still a very ideal choice for those who love outdoor activities.

Confirm the longest cooling days

Another indicator used to judge the cold storage and performance of a product is the "cold storage days", which refers to the time it takes for ice cubes to completely melt when placed in an ice storage bucket at a room temperature of 20 degrees. Although the styles with longer cooling days are more expensive, for people who often engage in long-term outdoor activities, it is recommended to lock in the type that can maintain the cooling power for a long period of time.

It should be noted that the number of cold storage days indicated on the package can only be used as a reference. In fact, it may only be 50% to 60% of the cold storage effect; for example, a product advertised as a cold storage period of 5 days may be after 3 nights. It will gradually lose the effectiveness of cold preservation. In order to be safe, it is best to estimate the number of cold preservation days required to avoid purchasing unsuitable ice preservation buckets.

Capacity is also enough to affect cooling effectiveness

When buying an ice bucket, you must be confused about how much capacity to choose. Basically, if the itinerary is a round trip on the same day, the ingredients and beverages required by an adult are about 4L, and the one-night stay is about 15L; if you travel with children, you can halve the estimated amount, you may wish to buy According to the number of people and the occasion to choose the most suitable style.
