Do you always forget about your chilled drink that’s on the desk or do you like to savour your chilled drink slowly? CupCooler |Instant| keeps your drink cold till the last sip the entire time! Now you don't have to rush to finish your drink.

If you find yourself easily frustrated by lukewarm and tepid drinks, fret not, our designers for CupCooler |Instant| is here to help you.

CupCooler |Instant| is a smart device that cools down and keeps your drink cold till the last sip. With a focus to set a different standard, the CupCooler |Instant| is unlike any other beverage cooling devices currently in the market.

Requiring no pre-preparation at all, the CupCooler is 6X faster than the fridge in cooling your drink. Just plug into your wall socket and wait 60 seconds for the surface plate to cool down to -18℃ (-0.4℉), this will make your drink (300 mL/ 10.14 fl oz) to cool down from 25℃ (77 ºF) to 15℃ (59ºF) in 10 minutes or to 10℃ (50ºF) in 30 minutes.

  • Easy to use

No complicated preparation needed. Compatible with most of the soft drink cans and beer bottles in the market. Simply plug it in, put your beverage on the device, and it turns it into a satisfying cold drink!

We made a testing video on how a prototype works on cooling down a can of soda. It will cool it down from 25℃ to 15℃ in 30 minutes and keep it cool indefinitely afterwards. Check it out!

Two new videos updated! Check how it works on the aluminum cup and a ceramic mug. 

We highly recommend using the aluminium cup for more efficient and faster cooling effect. You can use a mug on the device to keep your beverages cool, however, it is not the best option for cooling down your drink.

The CupCooler will be available with 4 different plug types (EU/US/UK/AU). Check the image beneath to see what plug you need, you will be able to select the plug you want in the survey after the campaign. Also no worries if you do not know, if you do not give a preference we will standardly ship the CupCooler with the plug suitable for your country.

Good news guys! We have raised more than €9,000, which will enable us to also manufacture the white version. You will be able to choose the color (Grey & White) you want in the survey that we will send out after the campaign.

Some people take about an hour to finish their cold beverage and then the cold drink turns lukewarm. Most people just don’t agree with a lukewarm beer or a lukewarm coffee so they go to waste usually.  

To prevent it from getting warm, the CupCooler is there to keep your beverages instantly cold and at the same temperature. So you can enjoy your drink even for one whole day. Size doesn’t matter: Any cup can fit on the surface of the CupCooler; from glass, cans to ceramic cups. The fastest way to cool it is with the aluminium cup due to its flat surface.

Risks and challenges

Based on many of our other successful projects, the main challenge of launching a product on Kickstarter is making and fulfilling the product within the specific timeframe. By having our own factory (not out-sourced), we are able to increase the production capacity within a very short time span. This also offers us more flexibility production-wise.
Another advantage of having our own factory is that it enables us to offer competitive pricing, as fewer external parties are involved.
Lastly, this full control over the production process allows us to closely monitor our products' quality, as the production process can constantly be monitored and tweaked where required. Because of this, we are able to try out innovative production techniques which would otherwise be impossible.
