Aviation Consumer Magazine gave B-Kool their "Top Gear" Editors Choice award in July 2015 in "Best Portable Cabin Cooolers".

B-Kool is an affordable portable air conditioning and cooling system for your airplane! It was developed by two private pilots who saw the need for a cooling solution that wouldn't break the bank.

Using a combination of ice and water, B-Kool provides up to an hour of 40º cool air using just 10 lbs of ice and a minimal amount of water. B-Kool is NOT an evaporative cooler and works well in high humidity areas.

B-Kool will hold up to 20 pounds of ice giving you over 2 hours of cool air. If you use it during taxi, climb, and landing and leave it off at cruise altitude you'll stay cool and comfortable for the entire flight.

Because the B-Kool weighs less than 10 pounds empty you can easily move it to your camper, airplane, boat or any area where 12 or 24v DC current is available. Cool-Flex, a flexible and expandable air duct can be expanded to over 2 feet and positioned so air can be ducted exactly where you want it to cool.

The components in B-Kool are marine grade so you can enjoy it for years to come with out the worry of anything more than basic maintenance.

  • Low cost solution to cooling
  • 40º F vented cool air
  • Provides up to two (2) hours of cool air
  • Great for aircraft, campers, boats and more
  • Environmentally friendly
  • 12 and 24 volt models available
  • Draws less than 4 amps on 12v systems and less than 2 amps on 24v systems.
  • Air velocity is an industry high at almost 36 mph
  • Optional wireless remote control

Dimensions: 18"W x 13"D x 15"H.
Approximately 10 pounds (empty).

Choose your model.
12 or 24 Volt: The B-Kool must be plugged into and powered by your aircraft cigarette lighter jack. It is available for either 12 volt or 24 volt aircraft electrical systems.

Wireless Remote?
The cord from the B-Kool to the end of the power plug is about 10 feet. The on/off switch for B-Kool is located at the very end of the cord to the power plug. So, if the power plug is within easy reach of the pilot you probably don't need the wireless remote. If your power jack is in a different location (i.e. rear seats or baggage area) then the wireless remote control allows you to easily turn the unit on and off to conserve the cool air.

2 Year Warranty.

Cool for the first hour

  • By A Customer from Summerland Key FL USA on Thursday, March 23, 2023
  • Pros: Cool while taxing
  • Review: I understand is not a regular A/C but the ice melts too quickly especially in the Florida Keys.

Works great!

  • By Teresa from Huntsville on Friday, August 19, 2022
  • Pros: Well built. Good value.
  • Review: In our travels from north Alabama area, has been well used for a number of years to cool off the cabin of our airplane. So glad we have it.

Excellent Product

  • By Dante Antonelli from Virginia on Monday, July 18, 2022
  • Pros: Very cold with powerful blower.
  • Review: So, first things first, this things WORKS! Keeps my Arrow III super cool for taxing and landing. Keeps wife very happy. On/off switch is right on the power plug, so if you can reach your cigarette port easily, there’s no need for the remote. Cord is about 10 feet long so it was plenty long enough for the cooler to sit in my rear baggage compartment with the cord running along the right floor of the plane. The ice melts FAST, but it doesn’t matter because the unit still blows cold as long as the water is cold. Great product and it works exactly as advertised. Best $300 I’ve spent on the plane, and like I said, keeps the wife happy and enjoying the flight!

Works as advertised

  • By Ricardo Walter Nolasco from Bradenton, Florida on Tuesday, October 13, 2020
  • Pros: Good size good air velocity
  • Review: The product can be made better to handle, the first day the cover came off of its hinges and there is no way to keep it in place when filling up with ice or pumping the water out.
    The cooling is better and last longer with solid ice as opposed to the one you buy at a 7/11

Works, but not very well built

  • By John from TN - Tennessee on Tuesday, October 06, 2020
  • Pros: Keeps cool - variable on what type of ice you use
  • Review: 2 stars are because it really works. Design quality however is severely lacking. If you put 20lbs of ice in it, the handle pops out of both sides (2nd use), and the lid came shipped with the hinge points being all dented in. It sets on top, but is not 'hinged' to the base as designed.
    We've used it on 3 trips in the summer and the cooling was as advertised, I am just really disappointed at the quality and probably should have returned it for the price paid.

Helps in the heat

  • By Greg from Hartford AL USA on Monday, August 10, 2020
  • Pros: Reasonable price, reasonable results
  • Review: The B Kool works as advertised. It puts out cool air as long as the ice lasts. Best use is during start, taxi and climb to altitude, where it is cooler. Then turn it off, and turn it on again for the landing. My wife wants to try to bring another small cooler of ice to replenish for landing, have not tried that yet. I put the unit on the back seat. I used a jump start type power supply from Harbour Freight to power it, worked well.

Just plane no sweat!

  • By NEIL from Georgetown SC USA on Friday, July 10, 2020
  • Pros: Easy to use, effective, small size/weight
  • Review: Flying a BE55 with my family of 4 in the summer heat and humidity of South Carolina was always a miserable experience until I purchased the B-Kool Portable Cooling System. I use 2 bags of ice from the FBOs and add a couple bottles water right before departure. I only use the system during startup, taxi, and takeoff, turning the system off out of approximately 5,000 to 6,000ft, then back on during the final descent, landing and taxi in. The system works as advertised for sure. Due to the location on my cigarette lighter outlet I did not need the remote control as the on/off switch is on the plug. The size of the cooler is perfect and does not take up too much room as well. The exhaust nozzle is capable of many heights, angles, and curves for your customization. Take care in putting the nozzle on, DO NOT force it too much, as explained by the directions. HIGHLY recommend!!! ENJOY!

    Q: What are the physical dimensions of this unit?

    A: Dimensions: 18"W x 13"D x 15"H.

  • Thursday, February 01, 2024

    Q: Can dry ice be used? I would assume dry ice would last much longer. It's temperature is -109 F. Would that temperature damage any components of the B-Kool?

    A: No!  Please do NOT use dry ice.  Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and can be harmful or even deadly if used in any enclosed area.

  • Friday, August 29, 2014

    Q: How many amps does the 24 Volt model draw? Have any avionics interference issues been reported?

    A: The 24 volt model draws less than 2.5 amps.  The only interference we know of was on an older plane with a rusty socket.  Once the socket was fixed the noise went away.  The B-Kool has all electrical components shielded.

  • Friday, June 27, 2014

    Q: What cfm fan does the 299. B-cool have? Is it one in and one out fan? Thank you.

    A: The fans are 240 CFM that blow at 28 mph. One per unit is all that is needed.
