Introduction: Super Cooler

About: Working my dream job in the Telecom industry, so chances are, i'll never have time to respond to comments or messages, nothing personal.

This has been done before and done better, so I'm just putting up a slide show.

I needed a cheap way to keep food cold since I have a five hour break between my morning and afternoon class. Didn't want a nice cooler as that would just invite theft. So "Super Cooler" was born. The last slide is the Newton's Law of Cooling graph computed for the cooler before and after, k was computed by measuring change in temp over time and rearranging T=Tr+(Tn-Tr)e(-kx).

    I know this is an older one, but it's late and i'm bored. What most people seem to not realize is how little insulation is in a regular cooler (pick a brank, it's about the same all around). The amount of insulation here at least triples what you'd find in a store bought one. For added fun, coat the outside in reflextix or mylar!

    From the title I thought I was going so find out how to cool things down quicker. Did I miss something? It looks like you just made the foam walls thicker.

    I agree with LinuxH4x0r, nice job doing a classic, looks nice, but I prefer Instructables over SlideShows or videos.
