Thermal Performance Testing the Unhinged Cooler

Thermal chamber experiments and outdoor testing show that the Maluna Unhinged Cooler outperforms the leading competition. In 2017, a series of performance tests held inside a thermal chamber in which both coolers were exposed to 100ºF temperatures concluded that the original Maluna Unhinged Cooler held ice more than 23% longer. In 2021, the Maluna Unhinged Cooler once again went head-to-head against the leading competitor for two weeks under the Summer sun. The thermal performance test showed the new, USA-made Maluna Unhinged Cooler holds ice 35% longer than the leading competition.
