COOLBOX – The World’s Smartest Toolbox – Indiegogo

Sunday, February 15th, 2015


The Coolbox takes the classic toolbox, and puts a technologically updated spin on it, adding in a number of improvements along with a couple of additional features such as speakers that extend the Coolbox beyond being just a toolbox.

Coolbox speakers

First and foremost, the Coolbox is wired for power. It features a retractable 12ft. extension cord, with three built in 110v/22v, fused female electrical outlets, so users can run multiple tools or other devices off it. Also included is a 20v rechargeable lithium polymer battery. LED lighting throughout allows the user use of the Coolbox in a greater range of lighting conditions. An onboard LCD clock displays both the time and battery level, USB ports allow for a method to charge mobile devices, and built-in Bluetooh speakers allow for uses to hook up their music players, or project sound for other purposes.

Coolbox handles

On the hardware side, the Coolbox has dual handles, as well as wheels. A whiteboard comes with the Coolbox, mountable on the inside lid. For those who carry a tablet around, the Coolbox has dual position cradles for users to mount them to the box.

Check out the Sketchfab below to see a full 3D model of the COOLBOX and its various components.

Tactical Impulse LE-1 Indiegogo Campaign

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Tactical Impulse is an Arlington, Texas-based flashlight manufacturer. Their flagship product is the LE-1, an LED flashlight system originally developed as a primary duty light for patrol officers. They are currently holding an Indiegogo campaign to increase awareness for their brand, as well as secure additional funding to develop their next round of LE-1 flashlights and accessories, and develop new products.


The LE-1 is constructed from aluminum, with a stainless steel bezel. It features a 3100 mAh rechargeable li-ion battery with a run time of up to 12 hours on low, which can be extended to up to 22 hours with the use of the optional Size & Life Extension Pack accessory; run time on medium is 4.5 hours, and 2 hours on high, extended to 8.4 and 3.4 hours, respectively, when the Extension Pack is used. The LE-1 is water resistant to IPX8 standard, and has an impact rating of 2m. Max output is 595 lumens.

As previously mentioned, the LE-1 has a line of accessories that either support or add functionality to the light.

Traffic Baton

The Traffic Baton integrates with the LE-1 and transforms it into an electronic traffic wand, while still allowing the main light to be simultaneously used. It has its own ON/OFF switch, and draws power from the LE-1 battery to operate its internal array of red LEDs.

LE-1 Cradle Charger

The LE-1 Cradle Charger locks the flashlight firmly in place to avoid accidental dislodging. It also comes with a spare battery charging bay.

Smart Holster

The Smart Holster integrates with the LE-1 thanks to Tactical Impulse Smart Light Control Technology, or SLC. SLC was developed to eliminate potential unintended light activations when the light is holstered on a belt, which can prove dangerous for the user. The Smart Holster insures that the LE-1 will not turn on when holstered even if the power switch is pressed, and will also turn off the LE-1 if it is on when holstered.
