John, if that is ALL your pledge page on my.pledgemanger.com says then you are fine. If the pledge page also says on a separate line:
Coolest Battery Pack 1 $55
Then you have one battery pack too many.
I am pretty sure you can remove it though. I have an extra speaker ordered and if I unlock my pledge and go to the last page there is an "X" button next to anything I added on after my initial pledge.
Ronald, there was only 62,642 backers. Not sure why your email said 65k
My Coolest Cooler is a gift. If the recipient wants extra plates or blender, will there be a web site where Coolest items can be purchased?
Tracey..thanks..that means I have overpaid by $55. Damn. Hope I get a response back from them soon. Don't see how I'll ever need 3 batteries.
@John..i was also confused by this. If you ordered extras when you became a backer, it will show that it is included in the pledge because you already paid for it. The coolest as a line item includes the battery speaker, etc.. Hope this helps
Did everyone receive an email today? It say my order number is 65000+ but I'm sure I got in way earlier than that.
I'm confused about something. When I originally did the pledge I added $40 for an extra battery pack. I forgot about that so when I went into the pledge form site I added another battery. I want to remove that but I'm confused as to what I'm actually getting if I remove that.
What I see on the pledge page is;
1 - Coolest Cooler - Margarita (included)
1 - Coolest Drink Guide (included)
1 - Coolest Battery Pack (included)
Does the above details mean I am getting a second battery as one is included with the Coolest and the one listed is an add-on?
I've emailed their support to get a response
Is it too late to change my mind about the color we want??
If someone can answer because I swear I haven't see this yet; how do you charge the speaker? Ryan didn't show it in the video, or any video I've seen. Wall plug? USB plug?
For those of you that feel the need to repeatedly ask over and over on every forum about the damn led lights... They are STILL there.. Enough already!
For those of you wanting to know the latest, search YouTube for "Kickstarter Backers 2" to see the latest features.
To add extras, you can go to your Pledge Manager account, unlock your order, and you can add the Pitcher/Plate Pkg., extra speaker or batteries. Just make sure that your order is locked after you complete your order.
Hope this helps...
I saw some comments about shipping cost from China to USA. Here are some numbers considering worst case:
Shipment from China is pretty cheap!!!!
The whole 40' sea train container will cost max $2500 at high rate. If they negotiate the price was better. Each container is bringing 336 Coolest Coolers, which means $7.5 a cooler!!!! That math was the first consideration when they went out of USA for manufacturing!
@Albert, for info on the light please read the comments below from me. It's already answered.
Did you ever think of contacting the source? That is, the contact link to Coolest???
I have been in touch with them numerous times, and they have always been responsive and accomodating.
Use Your Head. Don't be the douche you sound like.
What happened with the LED light? I didn't see any comment about it in the video. Did I miss any update on it?
Unfortunately for me, at the moment, I made it through the entire process, including submitting and credit card approval and then the site threw up the error 500.. My credit card is showing the authorization, but Pledgemanager still shows the order open with items still in my cart wanting me to enter my credit card info again. I've logged out and logged back in, even with a different browser, and I'm still not locked in until I add the credit card info again. I have contacted support.
Pledge manager worked great for me added plates, speaker and battery... Typed in cc info got email right away. Done on mobile device!! Which shouldn't make a diff but who know maybe
@George Thanks much for the info, including the msrp is very helpful. At $179, it'd be an expensive speaker. If this speaker performs similar to comparably priced Bluetooth speakers, that'd be incredibly impressive. Definitely the best pre-order value but also a bit of a blind leap that it performs like a premium speaker. Decisions, decisions.
@Dave: I just added a speaker with no issues. Speaker is $79, battery is $55 and plates/blender are $29. MSRP on speaker is $170, $39 on the plates/blender and $75 for the battery. The discount on the speaker is the greatest if bought right now. I can get the plates/blender later if I decide I need them. I had bought another battery a long time back.
Having trouble with pledgemanager too. Could someone please list the price for additional plates, battery, and speaker? Thanks in advance
More from the Facebook:
I thought the first ones were shipped last Friday... at least that's what my email said??
The Coolest Cooler They did - just posting a picture. But it will take two weeks - China-->US. UPS will be delivering in a couple of weeks.

Is it still a scam David? That beach ryan is on sure looks green right? Lol. Idiot.
Regarding the LED light, this post from their Facebook page:
Hi there, perhaps I'm mistaken but wasn't the Coolest supposed to have LED lighting inside for night time? I don't see that feature anywhere in your videos.
The Coolest Cooler There is an LED light in the lid!

@StevenLopes I logged in to check the price of the blender and plates, and when I clicked through to get out I got the same error. I backed out and reloaded the previous page and it all came up again. Be sure to go back and finish your order and re-lock it as it won't ship without being locked. Great video, looking forward to getting it in hand sometime soon.
Links to the video for those not coolest enough to get an email?
@Steven Lopes, no issues for me. I received a confirmation e-mail for the new add-ons right away.
Ok so watched new. Idea and nothing about led lights!!! I don't remember anywhere that they said lights would not be included. Kind of a bummer most of my drinking is at night in the dark
Anyone having issues ordering extras? Just tried and after accepting my CC info and getting the green check mark that it was successfully submitted the browser went to a "500 internal server error" page. My CC shows a temp authorization, but Pledgemanager still shows my order open with the items in the cart and wanting my CC info again :(
I received an email asking me to confirm my shipping address and to order any extras - all to be submitted by August 2nd. The receipt says my cooler has shipped, not sure what this means, other than - its getting closer to being mine - can't wait!
WooHoo emails! Didn't they say that an email would go out a week or so prior to shipping? Did I miss that?? Does that mean we should be getting them soon??? I'm stoked.
Wow - where did that come from?
Looks like a solid build all around. If ordering an extra plate/pitcher set, wonder where they would have to be stored. Throw 'em in a bag and tie it down on top I suppose.
Even if no LEDs, that doesn't bother me much. Even when camping, not having light never seemed a big issue for me when going into the cooler.
How much does the cooler weigh (I did scroll thru and didn't find any comments relating to that, although I may have missed it).
FRANK! Shut the FRANK up. If there is a prize for the most annoying, you win hands down.
On one wants your input. Go away, get lost. Frank off . Swim back across the border. the good news it that once the CC's are delivered there is a good chance you will not be heard from again.
Great video. It has the look of a high quality cooler and appears to be very well made. the lids sound solid when he closed them as well. Having plates and knives I'm surprised they didn't add a spot to store coolest cups. 2.0 maybe.
I'm loving what I saw in the new video! I can't wait to get this thing! Only detail that I didn't see was the location and operation of the led lights.
No LED light inside the coolest on the new video.
Everybody should check their emails. There is a deadline now to lock in your address and final choices for accessories (including the option to purchase more plates and another pitcher)
New vid on the features in the email too
Good point phil. I guess it's already a success in my eyes because it wasn't a failed project with endless delays. But it makes more sense to call it a success after we have it physically in our hands. @Alkettory, one of my favorites as well. More times than not lately it seems like that is where we are headed. Brought to you by Carl's jr.
I mean, The Coolest and all it's hype and anticipation are great, but .....life goes on.
Revelation and Admission: Sometimes I sit when I pee.
(Oh, the shame......)
I mean, sure Frank's not my favorite guy, but, at 3:00 a.m. and ya gotta go, sometimes I don't turn on the light (I'm not even awake at that point) ......so I just sit.
Does that make me an ogre?
(Do ya think I want pee sprayed all over the place??)
@George, thanks for that. Well there goes my hopes. 7th backer and in a major city, but didn't order ORANGE. Damn...
@Krazy: it's on the Coolest Facebook page. Buried. I had posted it here already but will paste it again:
The Coolest Cooler Yes - as your Coolest gets ready to ship you will be sent an email with full tracking information. Please remember that we have more than 62,000 Kickstarter backers and the factory cannot ship all in one month. We start shipping now and will ship approx. 20,000/month. When you backed, what color you ordered and where you live all impact delivery.
The Coolest Cooler Very first ones are orange but we change up production every few days and ship weekly so will be a mix arriving every month. Backer order primary factor, your location a more minor one. Hope this helps.
Btw their Facebook page has a new update:
We can't get them here fast enough for you, we know. But the first Coolests are on the way! If you're a Kickstarter backer keep an eye out for an e-mail confirming your shipping address and a final opportunity to update it if you have moved in the last year. Thank you for your support and patience!
Frank sits when he pees.
@Rich, where did it say what color was in first production run(s)?
Love the pattern here. Dumb comment, Frank pipes up. Stupid question, Frank pipes up. Bitching about something that is usually nothing. Frank writes an essay. It's all just speculation from all parties.
I'll just laugh along while waiting for the official posts.
Once again, Frank: you take forever to say nothing.
Idiocracy is one of my favorite movies.
***itll be a success when I have in my hands the coolest and deem it to be of a quality unit
Everything lately suggests that is coming soon. But that's when it'll be a success.
At the end of the day, why keep complaining. This project was a success and our rewards have started to ship out. How is that not enough
