Corpus Christi Man Says His Creative Coolers Can Help in the Heat

CORPUS CHRISTI -- A Corpus Christi man says he's got a really cool way of keeping cool. It's an ice chest, air conditioner combo!

Jacob Ybarra saw a similar cooler online and figured he'd give it a try.

He's made a dozen of them so far, and since they're custom made, the sky is pretty much the limit...

"I've got one guy right now that wants me to put speakers, USB ports on there (so he can) charge his phone, no problem. One person even asked me for blue led fans, that's alright, its your fan, I'll do whatever you want to it," Ybarra said.

A basic model will set you back about $90, the battery is rechargeable and all you need is ice to run the cooler.
