In order to give our KONG Cooler a number of days rating, we tested our coolers at 70 degrees (day and night), opening once a day for 2 minutes, starting with the ice filled to capacity. We tested these side by side against the leading brands (and beat them) and monitored the temperature with a data acquisition tool so you could see exactly what was going on.
