FridgeMate Cabinets are Super Tough and have been tested to withstand the following:

The DROP Test.
Box sizes up to 70L are filled with 40kg of wet sand (95L, 65kg of wet sand) and dropped a minimum of six times from a height of 3 metres.
RESULT: No damage or distortion.

Left in direct sunlight and rain for 12 months without colour fade, cracking or distortion of cabinet.

We only use Danfoss - the most trusted 12-24v compressor on the market!
We use only German Danfoss Compressors the industry leaders in portable refrigeration since 1950, simple reliable and exceptionally energy efficient . These compressors will operate at angles up to 30º while tough enough to withstand serious off road use hence the 5 Year Warranty
Simple but smart electronics.
We have designed the FridgeMate to be simple to operate with no flashy unnecessary electronics which reduces the risk of failure.
We only use standard off the shelf parts which means Fridgemate can be repaired by any refrigeration mechanic in the city or the bush.
  •  Low voltage protection means your fridge will switch off at 10.3V meaning it will not flatten your vehicles battery to the point where it will not start!
  •  Fridgemate's self diagnostic fault system that will let you know exactly what is wrong if there is an error or any kind.
  •  Normal & Economy switch saves power by switching the fridge to Economy mode when the contents inside have been cooled or in low temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why Choose FridgeMate?
  • Australian made
  • 3 Popular sizes
  • Unique adjustable fridge & freezer system
  • Robust polyethelene cabinet
  • Superior insulation
  • Danfoss compressor reliability
  • 5 year national warranty
2. Do I need an insulating cover?

NO! Fridgemate will continue to freeze in Australia’s hottest conditions - cooling capacity up to 60°C below ambient. Fridgemate's fully insulated polyethylene cabinet is at a minimum 45mm thick. Unlike the other heavily marketed imported fridges which need Insulating Covers to operate efficiently, the EvaKool FridgeMate does not need an insulating bag because they are insulated properly for Australian Conditions in the first place which means the compressor does not need to operate as often, saving power and creating a stable temperature while giving you the ability to freeze in temperatures up to and beyond 60ºC.
"Other major brands are designed for the European market where temperatures rarely exceed 30 degrees, as it is expensive for them to build a new model to suit Australian conditions they simply throw in a cheap insulating bag to help the units cope and call this a bonus"

3. Why do you put the compressor on the outside of the fridge?
Apart from Evakool fridges, nearly all other portable fridges on the market have their compressors mounted inefficiently under the fridge compartment. Heat rises which causes these fridges to work against themselves hence the “butter compartment”, not too smart!
In this game you are trying to get rid of heat & conserve as much energy as possible to save power and maximise your running time on batteries.
This is why we mount the compressor assembly outside of the cabinet as it is of utmost importance to keep this heat away from the area we are trying to cool this has the secondary effect of giving us much more usable space in the cabinet for food and drinks.
"To see what we mean try putting your hand behind the fridge at home and feel the heat it creates as it works!"

4. My fridge has been delivered by the courier on its side. What should I do?

Let the fridge stand for 1 hr in its correct position before starting the fridge, to let the compressor settle.
