Post by AaronLe » Mon Jun 03, 2019 5:26 am

We are always searching for the most outstanding cooler, researching various options and testing the most impressive models to learn their upsides and downsides. From road trips to beach days, weekend hunting journeys to backyard parties, we pushed these best ice chest products to the limit, testing their ability to keep stuff cold, the ease of transport, the experience it delivers and how rugged they are. Whatever you need your icebox for, Top rated coolers Thekinglive Image can help you choose the most suitable unit.

1. Tundra 65 Cooler - by YETI

Things you may like:

- Simple to use

- Very durable

- Top-notch insulation

Things you may not like:

- Smaller than advertised

- No plug leash

- Expensive

Yeti is among the most reliable names in the game for many great reasons. The Tundra delivers the most brilliant and versatile performance out of any unit we tested. When it comes to intensive insulation, it has outlasted others for how long it is capable of keeping the drinks and food at safe and delicious temperatures for consumption. The product comes with a rotomolded, straightforward construction that just works. What is more, the latches on this model are sturdy and convenient. There is also a removable basket inside to maintain the dry condition of sensitive items. You can outfit it with loads more accessories for no matter what activity you are planning, as well. For its size, the device has a reasonable weight. Not only that, the low profile shape makes items on the bottom easy to find.

On the other hand, according to some cooler reviews, this Tundra features a little lip on the drain’s inside, so you need to turn the entire thing on its end to empty it completely. That being said, with those small drawbacks aside, the Yeti is an incredibly handy cool-box for almost all activities you would take your car to.

2. ENG65 High-Performance Cooler - by ENGEL

Things you may like:

- Lightweight

- Convenient size

- Solid insulation performance

- Inexpensive (for a high-end unit)

Things you may not like:

- Latches are questionable

- Rope handles are less comfortable

Engel may be able to impress you tremendously with their models, including this cleverly constructed cooler that merges a more moderate cost with high-end function. Rotomolded design, an interlocking hinge and an airtight gasket make this device one of the most long-lasting, grizzly-bear certified items, along with remarkable insulators. With the quality you expect from a top-tier ice chest, this option breaks the mold a bit by adding a different hinge style, which requires less strength, as well as doubling as a bottle opener. It is among the most lightweight coolers that we have tested. While the product appears the same as many others in the category, you may love its user-friendly size and shape that make it more comfortable for an individual to lift and move the device to the table from the tailgate. Other than the textured lids, Image The Top Best Product TheKingLive.com this best ice chest cooler gives a powerful impression of usability.

On the one hand, the model missed the top-scoring performance of insulation by just under 24 hours; on the other hand, it manages to maintain temperatures under 40˚F for five to six days. You may like not needing to force T-grip latches into place, but the latches that it comes with enables a bit more motion compared to what we would like. Besides, its rope handles are less favorable, with slick plastic grips that look like they have finger dents in incorrect places. Still, in general, we think this solid-performing device delivers an excellent value for its price.

3. Xtreme Cooler Keeps Ice Up to 5 Days | Heavy-Duty 70-Quart Cooler for Camping, BBQs, Tailgating & Outdoor Activities - by Coleman

Things you may like:

- Lightweight

- Excellent insulation for the price

- Large capacity for its size

- Inexpensive

Things you may not like:

- Uncomfortable handles

- Not overly durable

- Not sealed

The insulation performance of this favorably-priced item is impressive. Up against units more than three times the cost, the Coleman holds its own. It fails to match the premium devices’ rotomolded prowess, but this choice proves its value and worth, accounting for all the money that you can save. It is far more lightweight compared to many others — even lighter than some of the personal-sized units! Above all, its capacity is deceptively large for a pretty small size. With no latches and a user-oriented pull-open lid, the Xtreme Cooler is among the most natural models to use. It is a straightforward design that does precisely what it is intended for.

However, if something you desire is longevity, you may not prefer the Coleman. Its hinges, handles and latches do not guarantee the product’s ability to last for years in comparison with the high-end units. Also, its small-width plastic handles are less comfortable than several broader, more cushy selections from the competition. We think highly of the pop-open drain’s simplicity, but its small size is not on par with the far wider competition. Since there is no rubber gasket around the top, we could not ascertain how capable it is of staying sealed over the years. That being said, in the end, you can buy about three of these relatively decent performing ice chests for the cost of a couple of other models, which should make it a fantastic value.

4. BMX 25 Quart Cooler with Cool Riser Technology - by Igloo

Image

Things you may like:

- Lightweight

- Ample insulation

- Inexpensive

- Comfortable carry handle

Things you may not like:

- No drainage hole

- Hinges not very sturdy

- No watertight seal

If the insulation is your priority, but you do not need the full best coolers for keeping ice all the time, this Igloo BMX 25 should be one of your best options — it has the perfect size for a personal ice chest. It fits all your tailgating demands with ease, beachside brews or road trip refreshments without needing to be carried with two hands. The BMX has much more capacity and lower weight compared to the Yeti Roadie of the same size, which is more than a third of the price. On top of that, the small cooler functions better than many other personal-sized products, keeping your items cold for more than 2.5 days — about four hours longer compared to the Roadie. As a bonus, it is comfortable to carry thanks to the thick, convenient handle, and the handy ruler over the top is useful for measuring your day’s catch.

Still, the BMX 25’s hinges may not impress you, as they tend to over-extend its lid. Besides, there is no drainage hole, and the model lacks the durability of its competitor. That being said, it is quite solidly constructed and more comfortable to bring along with you. Plus, unless a grizzly bear certified food container is what you are looking for, this BMX is a fantastic insulation selection for your refreshments — not to mention, your wallet will genuinely thank you.

Re: Problems installing a windows explorer extension

Why are you trying to terminate explorer.exe and what are these other systems that have it running multiple times? Have you considered doing a clean boot into Windows to see how many explorer files are running? This wouldn't happen to be a Windows 7 machine would it?

Hello Aaron, Belson,

@Aaron,

A way in which this can be accomplished is a custom action that terminates all the Windows Explorer processes at once. For instance, we can do this through a PowerShell script. Here is a little PowerShell script that does exactly what you need:

Code: Select all

$winEx = (New-Object -comObject Shell.Application).Windows() |
 Where-Object { $_.FullName -ne $null} |
 Where-Object { $_.FullName.toLower().Endswith('\explorer.exe') } 

 $winEx | ForEach-Object {  $_.Quit() }
This can be implemented in your project through our "Custom Actions" page. There, you can add a "Run PowerShell inline script" with sequence. In order to add a custom action with sequence, simply press the "Add custom action with sequence" button which is placed to the right side of the custom action's name.

After adding the custom action, simply copy paste the above code in your custom action.

The custom action's execution time should be "When the system is being modified (deferred)" and it should be scheduled before the "Remove Resources" action group.

Hope this helps.

@Belson,

Aaron is referring to the "Windows Explorer" process, which can indeed have multiple instances on the same machine:

I see. Thank you for your followup on this.

Hopefully the above custom action will solve Aaron's issue.
