i like the tub you put in there, that is for drinks correct? do you have any problems with condensation? i am looking to build a budget build for a friend and want to do something very similar.

you know what i built it, tested it (electronics) & gave it away the next day. i have heard the my godson does put drinks in thr. just not sure if with ice and the whole nine yards or just as storage when they are cold already.

I sell rigs almost exactly like that one. I can tell you that condensation is an issue. It will build up on the outside of the can where the beverages are stored, and drip down into the interior of the cooler. It hasn't been a problem with any of my gear due to component placement being out of the way of the 'drip area'. If they need to get it out, they just pull the drain cap on it and pour it out, pull the can out and let it dry out overnight while it's charging, and it's typically dry the next day when they go to use it again.

I'm looking for solutions to stop that from happening, but have to go through a couple of trials before I tell you my findings.

there is an easy way around the sweating on this type of rig. you just need to be able to use spray foam, spray a thin layer on the inside of the plastic that will be exposed to colder temps. ie, the lid and the bucket

when you sell them, what do you let them go for? the ones i've made i think i'm around $300 just in material. i have made 2 budget builds with minor changes. but still around $300 give or take a few...

I sell that model for $325. The "Base Model" builds don't net much profit. It's the mid grade and top end that get you some change. I enjoy building them enough that getting money to cover the extra connectors, parts, etc and a 12 pack of Ciders is good enough for me Tongue
