Powered Cooler

Thinking about adding this to the bike.

RoadProŽ 12-Volt Soft Sided Cooler - BedBathandBeyond.com

I know that I would need to disconnect it to keep the battery alive but would this put too much draw on the electrical system.

Here's the set-up I use on my other bike on the hottest of the hot days. Not electric, but it works.

This is the first link I think I have ever seen on this site to Bed, Bath and Beyond.

As long as you are not simultaneously using heated grips or gear the Versys should power it.
