Laughing.  Thanks for keeping the environmental extremists in check.  Often losing the sight of the forest, for all the trees.  Yeah, sustainable,  wooden trees.

Daniyal_Ali, that's what I was thinking. Great for watching movies and as you stated, when you're done your phone is fully charged. Beautiful!

Cabe, that's what I said at first. I had to read it twice to make sure I was reading it correctly. It is a simple idea, but a great one...obviously! $185 seems a little steep, but seems like people are willing to pay it.

  Just what the world needs. A cooler that allows you to charge your cell phone so you can watch a movie. Here is a better idea: Stay home and watch your movie so the rest of the campers can enjoy nature and the outdoors without the background noise of the latest special effects filled movie. I am sure the blue tooth could be set to power a loud speaker system and that way everyone in the camp site can share the sound track of your movie.

@far911: Simply put, the Switch is a very well made move. Using the phone while tilted is oddly satisfying because then you can do tasks that you cannot otherwise do while holding the phone in an upright position. I think this model should be bought by the leading phone manufacturers offering wireless charging docks.

Rotating Wireless charger

The rotating wireless charger is simply ingenious. I wonder why nobody thought of that before. It seriously becomes a hassle when you cannot watch movies on your phone while charging it on the wireless charging dock. That cooler is the coolest I?ve ever seen. Not only is it practical, but also it has some of the satisfying bits (like the waterproof Bluetooth device and waterproof USB) and not only that, it packs a bottle opener as well! It?s a total win.

Maybe Solar makes sense.  On the other hand, maybe just use replaceable alkaline batteries for the BT speaker.  Because what do you call a cooler that needs to be plugged in-?  A refrigerator.
