Coghlan's Cooler Light

Lights up your cooler at night...just like your fridge light! The light is designed to turn on when the lid is raised and to turn off when the cooler lid is closed. Great for coolers, tackleboxes and toolboxes.

Coghlan’s Cooler Light is a single LED light reflected through an acrylic lens designed to shine automatically when the lid is raised and to turn off when the cooler is closed. Unlike the typical refrigerator, the Cooler Light will shut off automatically after 20 seconds regardless if the lid is shut completely.

Designed to compliment any cooler, the Cooler Light adheres to the cooler lid with double sided tape - remaining permanently installed.
“Who wouldn’t want a light source in their cooler?” said Justin Vandenberg, marketing manager of Coghlan’s.
