Drink Induction Chiller (Electric Coaster)

THE DRINK INDUCTION CHILLER WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. 

Well, depending on how much you value a cold drink...

An electric, refrigerating drink coaster that can keep an ice cube frozen!
An electric, refrigerating drink coaster that can keep an ice cube frozen!

If you want your first sip of water in the morning to be refreshingly cold and booze (or soda) that will stay chilled indefinitely, this is the investment for you. The Drink Induction Chiller (or D.I.C. for short) is a thermometric, high-power refrigerator all packed into a modern looking coaster. 

Patent pending, the D.I.C. is really good at what it does (making/keeping your drink cold). We meticulously designed the D.I.C. to have minimal moving parts so that it could be small, versatile, and durable. It's made of high-quality materials and has a sleek look that will leave all your friends and co-workers jealous! 

It's the product you never thought you needed, but won't stop using. 

Look, we weren't the first people to attempt to make a refrigerating device for a single drink. But we far exceeded any of our competitors (and our own expectations, to be honest). The competitors offer junky USB powered devices which don't get cold (we get freezing, literally), and few offer the versatility and appeal of a coaster. In our humble opinion, nothing exists in this category of single drink refrigeration. 

We set a goal of being able to put a drop of water on top of the chiller and having it turn to ice. That didn't happen with the first prototypes, so we went back to the drawing board (over and over again...). We had to custom design every part to maximize energy efficiency, heat sync surface area, and temperature transfer performance. We finally nailed it. 

The upper cooling plate gets so cold, it can keep an exposed ice cube frozen indefinitely. This cooling potential allows the D.I.C. to refrigerate any type of glass cup, soda can, or plastic bottle. If it fits, it will get (and stay) cold.

We now have our final prototype and are preparing to begin the first batch of manufacturing. We believe this is the right time to introduce the product to the world and help fund our initial order expense. Your support today will get the Drink Induction Chiller on the nightstand and office desk of thousands of people very soon!

We hope you take advantage of the special introductory prices we are offering our Kickstarter supporters for helping us get off the ground! 

The D.I.C. will ship fully assembled with a standard 120-240V US electric cord. The product is designed with plug-and-play simplicity.

Risks and challenges

We have limited risk to our backers by committing to move forward with the production of the Drink Induction Chiller prior to launching on Kickstarter. Like any hardware project, hiccups in manufacturing and distribution are possible. We have a built in cushion to allow for some delays and will do everything we can to keep the timeline realistic.

We really want you to have your hands on one of these as soon as possible! We will continue to be transparent with our mission and operations in order to keep you, our valued backers, happy!
