The new Explorer Magazine is out and we are in! With a special issue the ABENTEUER & ALLRAD, Germany's biggest offroad event, presents the greatest innovations of the 2020 season.
With QOOL, va-Q-tec brings advanced temperature control technology closer to private buyers an not only offers a cooler that keeps drinks and food cool at the same temperature, but also offers five different temperature ranges that provides, on the one hand the perfect storage conditions for a red wine and, on the other hand reaches the "freezing point."
The German insider magazine "Waffenmarkt-Intern" reports on the winning of the QOOL Box at the Design and Innovation Award. The idea behind the cooler is to optimise the efficient use of the thermal energy worldwide and to develop innovative cooling technology for everyday use that looks good.
There are hardly any alternative passive coolers that make such consistent use of maximum insulation. I tested the Qool Box M with different Temperature Elements and ice cubes and I have to say that I am really impressed. The box has great handling due to its low weight. Also, due to the extreme insulation performance, it can be used for several days. That makes you more independent.

The QOOL Box is like a range extender for our off-grid surfing & fishing trips around the coasts of Europe. We do not want to miss anymore the possibility of keeping the fresh catches conserved for our return to home or to extend our little van-freezer so we can store more than a one-day catch of fish. The cooling effect of the QOOL Box is so powerful, it even allows us to load it with fish after 11days into the trip - making it the perfect box for the classic 2week surf & fishing trip.
The QOOL Box (size M) still fits our van full of surf gear and the fact that is running without any electricity makes storing options very flexible. I would always prefer the QOOL Box over an expensive 12V freezer solution.
The QOOL Box was perfect for our long mountain bike weekend at Kronplatz. With temperatures over 35° C we were glad to have cool drinks all day long. Since we didn't have a fridge in our accommodation and the electricity switched off as soon as we left the room, the QOOL Box absolutely convinced us. We could even bring the local delicacies we had bought well chilled to Würzburg.
Finally find some peace and quiet. This was the idea when my girlfriend and I booked this year’s trip to Sweden. For nine days we paddled on our own in a canoe through the Swedish lakeland. Equipment and supplies, we got at the beginning of the tour from our travel agent. To keep our food fresh and our drinks cold we decided to bring our QOOL Box. Great idea, since it was one of Sweden’s hottest summers ever.
Last weekend I used the QOOL Box during my camping trip as a mobile refrigerator replacement. It not only defied the outside temperatures of 42 °C, but it was also able to cool down warm drinks. In the evening we had ice-cold Lambrusco from the QOOL box and crispy pizza from our mobile pizza kitchen at the campfire. Very tasty!
For my customer visits I often travel with various delicacies. It is important that the food has a certain temperature even after hours of transport. Recently I wanted to bring a fresh Nidelkuchen to a customer meeting. This is a Swiss one-day speciality for which cool storage is particularly important, otherwise the cake will melt. I was driving with the QOOL Box from Bernese Seeland to Lake Geneva. Once there, the Nidelkuchen was perfectly cooled and in shape.
Traveling into the Australian Outback with the QOOL Box? No problem. During my two day camping trip I convinced myself. Without any problems I stored food and drinks for four adults in my QOOL Box L. Thanks to the temperature elements in the box, the food was well cooled during and after the trip. So I could enjoy my muesli with milk in the morning and cool drinks in the evening.
Since I received my QOOL Box, it has become the perfect companion for my wine tastings. Until now, I have always had problems bringing my wine bottles to my customers at optimal tasting temperatures. Either the bottles were partially frozen or they were already too warm. The nice thing about the QOOL system is, that I can vary the number of Temperature Elements depending on my needs. This results in an optimal temperature control.
Once around the world with the world's best QOOL box: In an unprecedented test, Sergio Dondoli, the two-time Ice Cream World Champion, sends the multiple award-winning ice cream from Würzburg to Argentina for the Ice Cream World Championship.

My name is Leonie and I am a long-distance swimmer for SV Würzburg 05. For training camps and competitions, I travel around the world with my team. Especially when we are in hot regions I like to get a refreshing hydration from the QOOL Box during the races or after exhausting trainings.
At the ISPO 2019 - the world's largest trade fair for sporting goods and sports fashion - I have selected the QOOL Box as the ISPO Gold Winner in the outdoor category with my jury colleagues. Even after five days, the QOOL Box was filled with ice cubes, without beeing melted. I have never seen such an impressive cooling performance without an external power supply.
The versatility of the QOOL Box is also shown in my catering service. From the purchase of the food to the use of the prepared food, everything was perfectly cooled. This is especially essential in areas where the cold chain has to be maintained. Even the increased opening did not matter and so after three days of catering service the temperature in the QOOL box had only risen by 1 °C. What luck, because a warm Panna Cotta would certainly not have tasted good on the third day.
