What Is A Blizzard Box and Why Do You Need One?


Ice box, chilly bin, cooler, cold chest, call it what you want but at the end of the day, they all have the same purpose - to keep your cold stuff cold and like most things in life, some are just better than others.

We could spend thousands of words going over all the pros and cons of each brand out there but nobody has time for that so we’re just going to skip ahead to the best car fridge on the market (in our opinion) and give you 5 fun and practical reasons to get yourself or someone you really like, a Blizzard Box.

1. Camping
Let’s just go ahead and scratch this one off the list ASAP since we’re willing to wager that at least 98% of the population thinks about camping whenever someone mentions a cooler and that’s valid. It’s a fantastic activity; who doesn’t love sleeping on a square balloon in a nylon triangle during the hottest months of the year? It’s not for everyone, but the Blizzard Box was designed to not only meet but exceed the needs of the hardcore, outdoor adventure types. 

Sure, you could stick with your tried and true hardware store cooler that requires 10 bags of ice per day and has soggy egg cartons, less capacity and wet… everything OR you can head to the link down below and snag yourself a Blizzard Box in one of the 5 convenient sizes and save yourself the hassle of draining water, the expense of ice and the waste of space before heading out on your next off-roading, mountain climbing, tree-hanging adventure. 

2. Medicinals 

Insulin, antibiotics, eye drops, creams, and serums just to name a few sometimes need to be kept cool which can make it hard to live your best life sometimes. Give yourself the gift of never having to stress about maintaining the right temperature whenever you have to travel and grab yourself a portable refrigeration unit like the Blizzard Box. You can set and control the temperature, leave it in the car, and plug it in on the way to and from your destination or you can charge it up before you go and know you’re injections, topicals, and ingestibles are stored at exactly the right temp so you can focus less on what ails you and more on getting the most out of any adventure. 

If you’re a nursing mom you may find all of the above features useful for an entirely different reason. Whether you’re traveling with a nursing baby or toddler, spending the day at the beach or you happen to be one of those moms who has to pump and dump on your lunch break, having an electric cooler could be a lifesaver on its own. You won’t have to deal with spoilage or storage when you have a Blizzard Box that fits perfectly between your seats or in the back of the car.

3. Grocery Shopping

Imagine going to the store on the hottest day of the year and buying all the frozen treats you want without a care in the world. No rushing in and out, hoping and praying you can make it straight home, and don’t get stuck in traffic or held up by a 300-car train. The Blizzard Box makes that dream a reality- yeah, no more melted popsicles or tubs of sweet, creamy soup for you. It’s one thing to keep your food cold, but frozen? That’s a feature worth focusing on and when you can reach freezing temps in 20 minutes that’s worth bragging rights. With a variety of sizes to choose from you can fit a 1 quart or 10 and anyone who thinks that’s too much is wrong, you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. All you need is a Blizzard Box and an outlet to plug it into.

4. Tailgating

Depending on what state you live in, tailgating can last an hour or the entire night. Keep your brews and bratwurst cool for hours ensuring the party doesn’t have to end when the ice melts. Everyone you know will “ooh” and “ahh” as you crack open one crisp, cool beverage after the other and beg you to share the power of chill when their cooler gives up. If you’re skipping the parking lot and need to take your Blizard Box with you, easily slide it out of your 07-18 Jeep JK with one of our mounts, and keep the contents within it cooler for longer with an insulated cover, both are available here.

5. Take-Out

Bet you didn’t see that one coming. Yes, it’s called a Blizzard Box and its primary use is to keep things cold and frozen when charged up or plugged in but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it to keep hot foods warm when you grab take-out, or you’re transporting your great, great grandma’s signature tuna casserole to the next family get together. Thanks to its foam-insulated walls, the Blizzard Box is perfect for holding heat in when not being used for its intended purpose. 

When it comes to picking the ideal cooler for your lifestyle there’s a lot to consider and even more to compare. Capacity and cost are just two common factors that come into play and the Blizzard Box offers a variety of both. You can choose from 12, 22, 41, 56, and 94 L options- all of which can be charged conveniently at home, or on the go and offer the added benefit of USB ports so you can keep your devices powered while exploring the vastness of our planet, or the confines of a stadium parking lot. There’s no better buy when it comes to keeping your favorite beverages, BBQ items, and sensitive medications at the perfect temperatures without the need for ice.
