About Us

Leading the way for Australian engineered battery operated cooling technology

We’re an
Australian company

CoolCab Technology is a highly efficient, battery operated, cabin air conditioning system that delivers quieter, more efficient air conditioned comfort.

Our History

With many years’ experience servicing the truck, bus, earthmoving and mining industry, founder and owner Gregg Chapman recognised there was a gap in the market for quieter, better performing, more efficient cooling technology.

The Challenge

Typically, vehicles need to keep their engine running to maintain air conditioned comfort for the operator – either in the sleeper cabin at night, or in a stationary heavy vehicle during the day. Traditional battery solutions struggle to deliver sustained comfort cooling in high ambient temperatures like Australia’s tough tropical and outback conditions. The end result is poor system performance or high fuel and maintenance costs as well as noise complaints and disrupted rest from extended operation of the diesel engine.

Gregg saw this as a challenge and wanted to revolutionise vehicle air conditioning, providing battery operated air conditioning that not only delivers cool, quiet comfort when you need it, but utilises the latest technology to ensure efficient operation and extended battery life.

CoolCab Technology was born.
