I got one aswell.

Will pimp it and do a guide for here. With some extra insulation it really is huge for the price.

Just tested and it looses 2.2c in 60 minutes half full with water only.

Just running a pre-heated test before I start insulating.

Ordered one myself,as if I haven't got enough projects on the go but at that price it's a steal 👍

1.2c lost in 60 minutes with pre-heat.

Pre-heat plus sleeping bag will see no loss. No mods required then. Result.

Are these food grade plastic??

EDIT:

Apparently, they're made by a French company called EDA plastiques (part number 60722). Their catalogue indicates it falls under the requirements/guidance/whatever of EN 12546-2, which is for "Materials and articles in contact with foodstuffs - Insulated containers for domestic use - Part 2: Specification for insulated bags and boxes". So to me, that suggests it'll be fine to use, BUT I'm not even remotely confident (being unable to access the actual text of that guidance info), especially given that elsewhere in the catalogue, they make a song & dance about their jerrycans being "Food safe according to European standard", with no such note elsewhere for coolers etc...
