      I'd like to know when are you getting batteries? Mine died last year just after 1 yr of use. Can't use it at all without a Battery that only you make. I'M on your waiting list for over a year now.

      Another thing..... I no longer back projects where the funding phenomenally surpasses the goal. It seems to overwhelm the project designers, and is often the one where the backers get dropped, or receive the inferior items. They save the better quality, developed products for the ‘paying’ customer.

      It has been almost 4 years since I backed you! Nothing. WTF kind of backer loyalty is this. Reported the project to Kickstarter a year ago, and nothing from them either....and a person is not allowed to report a second time. Projects such as this, where the item is apparently being manufactured and sold, and the backers are abandoned, make me furious! Shame on you!

      If anyone is located in the Boston area, I'm selling my Blue Coolest: Never used with all the pieces still boxed up. Message me at and include just Coolest in the subject line.

    24. Gary E Zito on May 8

      My wife asks me once a year, around this time, if we ever heard back about "that" cooler. I tell her that it's always excuses. Maybe year four will be different, but I'm not holding my breath.

    25. Katie Stuller on May 5

      Backer #16,128.... at this point, I just want a refund. At one point that was an option. I was told I would be emailed two weeks prior to my cooler being shipped asking me if I still wanted a refund at that point. Over a year later with no response, I contacted customer service and due to whatever settlement they just made, there will be no refunds. This is getting ridiculous....

      Backer since July 26, 2014 - I'm starting to think that by the time I do receive my coolest, it will be obsolete and end of life. Can I request a refund instead? I'm nervous that your company will go out of business before the rest of us see ours. #refundplease

      Backer 12,737. For all of you that haven't received your paid for product, I feel sorry for your $ loss. For everyone thinking of buying. DONT. I wish I could push a picture of my cooler out for trash pick up. This thing was awesome until second time out. Let's just say don't use your blender if you are planning on spilling around it. Making blended drinks and a cup feel over/spilled with unknowingly some of the liquid making it dorm into the motor area (even with blender in place). At next press of the handle comes the smell.. Opened the cooler top find the battery overheating and beginning to melt. It became so hot it began to smoke. Crap batteries and motor.Low bid for sure. Now no motor and only one battery that won't charge. Super dangerous product. It will only be a matter of time till it burns someone's property to the ground. Be careful y'all, good luck and hopefully the BBB will someday investigate this crap , take make the 13 million this donkey made off of good people.

    28. Stephanie Lamouroux on May 1

      Backer #19,093 I was wondering if you were offering another option to pay more to receive your cooler sooner? I know you offered this before and I hope you know that there is interest should you decide to offer this again. I realize now that even if I lose money on this deal I would still be able to enjoy my purchase now instead of later. I also feel for the struggles you have endured with having an overly successful campaign here on kickstarter- while it was great to have so much support it made it even harder to meet the demand. The backers that turned on you have really turned on the whole group because that distraction has kept the rest of us from fulfillment. So keep up the great work and do what is necessary! -Stephanie

      Backer #29,673. Bought two, one for my mom’s birthday.... 3 years ago, and myself. Unlucky that I am not one of the 40,000 delivered, and because I am in Canada, I would suspect probably never at this point. Unfortunately this has scared me away from backing any other campaigns.

      By the time I get my coolest cooler, the so-called "cool" functions will be obsolete. I backed this campaign with $185 in Aug 2014. Then spent additional money to order an extra battery, $240 in total. You can't deliver the remaining coolers but you can continue to sell them online. What happened to integrity?

    46. Kevin Huff on March 26

      Mark - I can imaging it's a drag not having batteries. And if they did, maybe people like me could actually get a COOLEST. Coming up on 4 years of waiting and while I appreciate all that Ryan/team have done since their Kickstarter campaign, I'm painfully aware they missed too many things when setting up their campaign. Still waiting for a cooler.

      Mark Flower on March 21

      Please Tell us when you are going to get Batteries. I got my cooler in the beginning and after a year and a half the battery went dead. I have been on your list for a new battery since the summer 2017. Well the summer 2018 is right around the Corner. I still cant use my cooler for what it was designed for. I see lost of folks in the same boat as me. When are you going to get Batteries? I think waiting a year is more than enough time. Your company is on the verge of collapsing not offering a battery to run a product you so proudly promote. PLEASE UPDATE US AS TO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR BATTERIES.

      "I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE HAD MY COOLEST BY NOW IF THE COMPANY DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BEING SUED. so a special thanks to the people who are making this process even slower (if it was even possible)."

      You're welcome Justin. Being proactive got me my cooler, which is a POS.

      When you finally, if ever get your cooler, you will be even more disappointed. It is heavy and bulky when empty. The handle is cheesy and the wheels are too small to go through sand. I'm retrofitting my wheels with rolleeze oversized tires so it can be pulled through the sand. It is better suited for tailgating or other semi stationary uses. I have no use for the plates. Anybody want them? You can fill them with whipped cream and push them in Greppers face!
