Satisfy your hunger for adventure and take a portable fridge on your camping weekends and extended holiday road trips. Whether you carry it in the car, 4WD, caravan or boat, you'll wonder how you ever survived without this ultra-cool, ultra-convenient food and beverage storage equipment. Forget the old eski and ice dramas. Keep those snacks, drinks and meal ingredients cold, fresh and delicious all day, every day, no matter where you go.
Fridge capacity for your vehicle
Before you even consider the various specs and features of car andcaravan refrigerators, you need to think about the space inside your vehicle. Measure the area your new car fridge needs to fit into and then compare with the dimensions of models you find online. Can a small, fully portable 35 litre fridge / freezer with a 45W compressor handle the perishables you'll be packing? Or do you need to step up to a popular 80L model with a 65W compressor and built-in freezer box? An item with this capacity will be approximately 830mm high, 450mm wide and 480mm deep. You can even find 110-198L fuller capacity options for serious storage to sustain the whole family over multiple days of travel or isolation. Whatever size you choose, look for a model with a flush back design for compact placement.
Brands and features
While there are plenty of excellent car fridges on the market, it's a good idea to buy a recognised brand name such as Waeco, Mishto, Primus or Doss. Aside from outstanding cooling performance, you may want a portable fridge that offers features like a manual thermostat for temperature regulation, power-saving compressor start, internal LED light and 3-stage battery protection. A fingerprint-free, stainless steel finish adds an extra touch of class.
