Helpful Portable Fridge Info
There are 4 different types of portable fridges: Thermoelectric, Compressor, Absorbtion and Eutectic. At this stage we sell and support the first three. The type you select will depend on what the fridge will be used for.
If you only want to run your fridge on
mains power or from the vehicle battery the choices are compressor or thermoelectric. Most Waeco compressor models and Coolpro thermoelectric fridges run off 12, 24 and 240 volts whereas the Bordbar thermo-electrics operate on 12 volts only. If you want to run a camping fridge on gas then an absorbtion type is needed.
Size is the next consideration. The fridge needs room in the car with a small space around it for ventilation, so ultimately size might depend on how big your vehicle is. Internal fridge volumes vary from 8 litres up to 120 litres in typical portable fridge/freezers and 3 way (absorbtion) fridges. Therefore it's generally a trade off between how much capacity you want, vehicle storage space and fridge weight.
What about the power source. For compressor and thermoelectric car fridges you're relying on the battery capacity, standalone or in the car. They key is to consider how much power the fridge will draw from batteries, what the total battery capacity is and how long it will keep your goodies cold. Thermo's use a reasonable amount of power and don't cool as low as a compressor portable fridge so these are more suitable for short term trips like picnics, sports events, beach etc.
Absorbtion fridges are more commonly know as 3 way or gas fridges. These are a great option for the serious camper where mains,12 or 24 volt power is not an option. The 3 way fridge doesn't have a motor but works on the heating and cooling effect of an ammonia solution to keep food and drink cold. While traveling, run the fridge on 12 or 24 volts then switch to gas when you arrive at your destination. These units are very efficient on gas and are excellent for camping or work for extended periods in remote locations.
