In just 45 seconds, your hot soda can be chilled to a refreshing four degrees with  V-Tex. UK-based company Enviro-Cool claims that its gadget needs 80% less energy than standard drink chillers and about 54% less as compared to glass door coolers. These figures are based on cooling 200 x 500ml cans per day.

V-Tex saves lot of space of your refrigerator; now you don’t have to keep your beverages in the fridge, you can store them anywhere in your home. When you’re ready for a cold one, chill it on the spot.

This reverse microwave can be a big help to the parents of newborn babies, allowing them to cool baby bottles from the boiling point to ready-to-drink in seconds. Now you don’t have to run cold water over the bottles or put the bottle in the refrigerator to cool it.

V-Tex also allows you to cool multiple beverages at once in just seconds without disturbing the carbonation. Both cans and bottles of all shapes and sizes, from a 150ml tin can to a wine bottle, can be cooled.

Enviro-Cool plans to release both commercial and domestic variants soon. But until then, we’ll have to stack our bottles in the fridge.
