ANOTHER use for my Fuel Cell.....
on September 10, 2011
Oh, how I love these fuel cells (OK a lot of Ju Ju Be bags) but I just ordered my THIRD fuel cell because this is a very versatile little bag!!
I got to pack away my heavy duty camera bag, because this little guy holds my DSLR now!! I am super thrilled not to lug around a seperate camera bag for trips like Disney! Since I despise carrying my heavy camera on my neck, I am always setting it down or handing it off to hubby (even though I am the photo spaz and need it back constantly, LOL), but now I just put it in here and attach it to the stroller bar (my fav) with the strap on top OR put it inside of one of my larger Ju Ju Be bags (Mighty Be or BFF) and it won't get scratched or dinged- it is nice and protected from shifting around inside another bag!!
I have to admit, I am not sure the insulation is the best (compared to an insulated lunch-box) so if that is your TRUE intended purpose/use, there are probably better options for you, BUT I find it PERFECTLY sized for those pre-packaged snacks (and it holds a LOT of them), like crackers, chips, gummy candy, etc. I can fit enough for my family of 4 (for a long day). This keeps them in one place and they WON'T get squished or smashed in this, even when inside a larger bag full of heavy things!
I also use this as a bottle holder, I can fit 5 large weird shaped ones (like the Vent-Air) or 6 large standard ones easily). I sometimes fill them with water and bring powder to make the bottles, OR bring the nursettes to pour inside. Since I pack formula/bottles this way, room temp is ideal so the insulation doesn't matter.
Oh, and besides clipping this to the stroller bar, you could also attach it to the outside of another bag with the strap/clip (I tested that out) but I haven't needed to do that yet- but it will be convenient if my bags get too full (where it won't fit inside)!
I highly recommend these!!
I highly recommend checking out the Fridge To Go (we have the Playtex Bottle Holder one) for small items that you want to keep at a SAFE temp for a LONG time (we carry pediasure, milk, and yogurt in it). It is a really small bag (with straps for stroller too). We store the bag itself (folds small) in our freezer and it stays really cold for at LEAST 6 hours (they say 8, I think 6 - but SUPER cold for 6). Since the bag is lined with the cold packs you don't have to pack any! They have larger ones available now (I think without the Playtex marriage, just by Fridge To Go) and I am considering purchasing a larger one for other things, but the small one we have works well for a few common toddler daily necessities (and doesn't take up much space). Sorry, that is off the subject of the Fuel Cell but I wanted to share since we find BOTH extremely valuable and useful!
