Tool box goes high-tech

September 6, 2018


A high-tech, LED-lighted, Wi-Fi friendly tool box that can charge power tools, play music, show the time and roll along on rubber wheels has moved from crowdfunding to the market.
The Coolbox even has a magnetic top to hold loose screws and nails and a built-in bottle opener, a whiteboard and a mount for a digital pad. The pad, according to a Coolbox promotional video, can be used to get information on parts or directions for a project via YouTube. By the way, the Coolbox also has space to store tools.
Reaction to the Coolbox has been mixed. One contractor said the US$299 price tag was too high, while others said the fact it comes with an eight-foot extension cord, a battery pack and a light could make it handy for some job sites.
Based on the marketing, Coolbox is squarely aimed at the do-it-yourself market, not professional contractors.
