The story behind the FAB Light started with a simple question, “How come there is a light in a fridge, but not in a cooler?” Valid question in my opinion. I personally have spent many nights outside camping or at bonfires and found myself rummaging through the cooler in the dark. It is kind of difficult to hold the lid of the cooler open and a flashlight while looking for the drink you want.
Inventors Linda Pond and her daughter found themselves in the same predicament at a softball game one evening. On a warm August night in 2005, Linda and Rhonda Pond – who have been the Mother/Daughter, Pitcher/Catcher duo for The Carleton Place Ladies Fastball Team, The FAB U Lasses since 1988, were enjoying an after-game refreshment with their team around the team cooler. It was then that Rhonda uttered those fateful words, “here’s a NEED for your event tomorrow Mom – this cooler NEEDS a Light” . It demonstrated perfectly what Linda meant by a NEED, so she used it as an example at her company’s Networking event, held the very next day. Two engineers were so enthralled with the idea, they came up with a working prototype two days later. What began as an example, ended up being the NEED they solved and took to market. It is amazing how quick and idea can be turned into a useful invention!
FAB Light Motion Activated Cooler Light Product Review
The FAB Light is a motion activated LED light that turns on and off automatically. The acrylic casing lights up bright and can actually even be embossed with a company or personal logo! Simply peel off the paper backing to reveal the two sided tape, stick the light to a clean surface inside a hinged box or cooler. When you open the lid the unit turns on and lights up, it stays lit for 20 seconds. When you close the lid, the light goes off automatically. There is a clicking/rattling sound that comes from the light, this is simply the internal working part doing its thing!
I am very impressed with this handy little gadget. We are very much outdoors people and always run into an instance where we will be able to use these. My biggest need- the tackle box at dawn and dusk out on the boat! I have stabbed myself so many times with hooks or grabbed out the wrong lure fumbling around the tackle box. This is going to be perfect for that!!
Watch this video to see the FAB Light in action, you will be amazed at how bright it is!
(the cover of the FAB light is crooked in the video, it is not how they come mine just landed that way when screwed on and I did not notice before doing the video) Sorry!
