Modern technologies require electricity for them to work. Electricity is vital because it powers most home products including coolers so it can keep drinks and food cold. The Fenik Yuma, on the other hand, deviates from traditional coolers because it doesn’t need ice or electricity for it to work.
This ingenious device only needs water and utilizes an evaporative cooling system to keep its contents cold. It uses a material called PhaseTek, which allows water vapor to easily evaporate from the sides of the box without letting any of the liquid to leak out. The material holds water within the actual walls of the cooler.
The evaporation draws out the heat from the interior, subsequently cooling the unit down. The hot temperature decreases to an average of 10 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit from ambient conditions, and more in arid environments.
This cooler sets up easily. Simply pop in the four fiberglass support rods and fill the walls of the unit with water. Then wait for the evaporation to start cooling down the temperature inside.
The Fenik Yuma is the perfect cooler to bring when hiking or camping in the great outdoors that’s devoid of electricity. It keeps food fresh and drinks cool. It is especially ideal to use with fruits and vegetables.
Moreover, it is not a hassle to carry around since it packs down to roughly the size of a standard pillowcase. It weighs 4.4 pounds when empty and has a 60L capacity.
