Product description Brand name and product description

Fenik’s Yuma 60 L Cooler is a portable system that refrigerates perishable foods such as fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. The cooler does not require electricity to operate and instead uses patent-pending PhaseTek™ membrane technology to facilitate evaporative cooling. The degree to which the device cools food depends on the ambient air temperature and relative humidity and may cool the internal storage space by 20-30 °F. Fenik, which is based in Somerville, Massachusetts manufactures the Yuma 60 L Cooler. The product was designed by Quang Truong, Jeremy Fryer-Biggs, and Spencer Taylor.
