Solar Evaporative Cooler

It's getting hot again, time for some recycled tinkering.
1. Source an old ice chest
2. Cut holes for some DC fans
3. Wire up the fans to a solar panel.
4. Optionally install a switch for control.
5. Use a glue gun around the holes of the wires.
6. Now simply drop ice into the cooler, or reuse containers with frozen water.

Recycled Bench becomes Gate
