BIXBY, Okla. — Just introduced is IcyBreeze, a portable air conditioner and cooler for airplanes.
“We are able to provide all the benefits of a cooler plus true air conditioning, in a compact and portable unit that has no Freon or chemicals and gives off no harmful exhaust,” said Andrew Jenkins, IcyBreeze CEO and president.
With some ice and a little bit of water, the 38-quart cooler can blast cool air recycled from inside the cockpit and driven by a small electric pump. IcyBreeze provides a 25-mph breeze at temperatures 35° cooler than the surrounding air.
The air conditioner feature is powered by a rechargeable 12V battery that keeps cool air running up to seven hours on the standard setting. There are two adaptor options for continuous use.
