Camping in style: Coleman's battery powered blender
February 11, 2008 For those who love camping but can't bear to be away from their fruit smoothies, Coleman has created a battery powered blender that you can take just about anywhere.
Coleman has created four Rechargeable Portable Blender models designed to suit every need – camping, tailgating, home and marine. The RoadTrip (tailgating), home and marine models have five LEDs to indicate charge status and a rubber base wrap for added stability. The camping model includes a two-LED charging indicator. Each model has an oversized push-button ON/OFF switch and battery level indicator for easy use. Two 6-volt rechargeable batteries power all models with 20 to 30 batches per full charge of about ten hours. Each model also includes a 120-volt and a 12-volt charger conveniently stored in the base of the blender for recharging at home or a vehicle.
Capable of making 48 ounces of drinks in around 30 seconds, all models have a rubber non-skid base to keep the blender stable and the pitcher and the lid are hand-washable for hassle-free cleanup anywhere. A quick wipe with a wet cloth keeps the base clean. The lid can be set to open, close, or strain and stainless steel blender blades and polycarbonate pitcher are durable and long-lasting. The camping model retails for USD$59.99, while the RoadTrip version is listed at $69.99. The home version sports a sleek, silver finish and sells for $79.99. The marine model retails for $99.99 and features additional battery capacity and an electroplated finish.
