Engel 28 Litre 3 in 1 Live Bait Box


How could Engel improve upon a wildly popular industry standard? Well, Engel listened to their customer’s feedback and implemented two important changes. First, they replaced the standard “hang tray” with an all-new pull net. This new feature makes fetching your bait and changing water a breeze…and it’s designed to withstand wear and corrosion. Second, they moved the air tube port from the edge of the sidewall up into the lid. This should allow you to fill/use more of the box capacity, while also cutting down on the small overflow splashes that result from allowing the cooler to vent around the air tube. Engel's powerful 2-speed 2X2 Air Pump keeps the water fully aerated, while the insulated cooler shields expensive bait from the elements. Plug into your car or boat’s cigarette lighter using 12V adapter to run the pump overnight and keep bait fresh for the next morning.

Great live bait box for an incredible price.

  • Is this ice box suitable if I want to keep food warm?

    The answer is No, an icebox is designed to keep ice frozen for as long as possible. Which mean it will not keep food warm.

    If you are looking to keep food warm, we recommend looking at our range of Thermoelectric Cooler/Warmers. A thermoelectric cooler/warmer requires either 240V or 12/24V power to run. Most of them have a capacity to heat to 55- 65 °C above outside temp and cool down to blow around 20- 25 °C.

  • How can I increase the longevity of ice in my Icebox?

    We have a few recommendations to ensure that ice is kept for longer:

    • To ensure a cooler icebox, you can use block ice to increase the ice to last longer.
    • Another tip is to cool down the icebox a few hours before use. A good idea is not to leave it in the sun.
    • Cool down the items before moving them to the icebox.
    • If you keep the icebox topped up at all time, it gives less space for the hot air to enter when opened.
    • Always the most important tip, avoid opening the icebox to keep the cool air in.
  • What are the main differences between a fibreglass icebox and a plastic (polyethylene) icebox?

    There are some features to consider when choosing between a polyethylene or fibreglass iceboxes. Here are some Pro's and Con's between them:


    • Both the exterior and interior is built with fibreglass between the insulation layers, this will help to ensure constant cooling.
    • The fibreglass is considered a non-porous material, which ensure that no odour or smell is retained. Which make them great for storing fish during your fishing trips!
    • These iceboxes typically can keep ice between 5-7 days.
    • A fibreglass will always be heavier if compared to a plastic ice box.
    • More expensive compared to a polyethylene ice box.


    • Between the outer coatings of the icebox contains a layer of insulation. This is generally created with a Roto-moulded method. Due to the bigger part of the icebox are a form of the large polyethylene plastic, the result means that the icebox have fewer gaps and joins to ensure a low heat absorption.
    • A plastic icebox is lighter compared to a fibreglass.
    • A downside to these is that they will retain the odour compared to the fibreglass. We always recommend ensuring to clean your icebox between your trips to ensure a better smelling ice box.

  • I'm trying to decide between a portable fridge or an icebox for our next trip: can you help me decide?

    Of course, this is a great question, and it all comes down to what you are meant to use it for.

    Here are some Pro's of owning an icebox:

    • Buying an icebox is cheaper compared to a portable fridge freezer.
    • The iceboxes are waterproof, which can be good if you want to use it outdoor during your trips.
    • No electricity required when using an icebox — just requires the icebox & ice!
    • If it is not being used to store food, you can store other gear in it.
    • Much lighter compared to a portable fridge. This is good point if you are worried about the weight or are transporting the icebox from place to place.

    Con's on an icebox:

    • Requires to always have ice.
    • Depending on if you have a plastic or a fibreglass icebox, the ice will only last for a few days. If you are going on a longer trip, we recommend a portable fridge/freezer.
    • When the ice melts, the food is going to get soggy — this is something to consider.
    • The ice will take up internal space in the icebox, which may require you to get a larger sized icebox.

    To conclude, if you are planning on using the icebox for short camping trips or day trips, an icebox is a great choice. They are cheaper, lighter and with ice - your food will be kept cool.

    However, for a longer trip when you required a larger volume of food to stay cool, a portable fridge will probably be the best choice.
