Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a large, portable fridge freezer for efficient cooling on the go. Ideal for camping, RVs and more.
- Built with a durable, rugged housing and weighing a hefty 57 lbs, the Whynter Portable Fridge and Freezer is made to last to give you portable cooling you can rely on. High quality insulation in the walls and lid ensures optimum temperature stability. Two integrated side handles makes mobility easy which is particularly useful when taking it to and from your vehicle.
- It’s available in either two models; either 65 quarts which can accommodate up to 107 cans or 85 quarts which can accommodate up to 120 cans.
- The compressor cooling system runs quietly so you aren’t distracted by noise as you drive. The control panel provides a versatile temperature range from -8°F to 50°F. The temperature is displayed on a red LED display for easy monitoring. Using the Fast Freeze mode you can cool the unit quickly to -8°F.
- Two removable wire baskets allow you to restock the unit with ease without having to take it out of your vehicle.
- The appliance can operate when tilted up to 30°, making it suitable for taking on the road where surfaces will be uneven.
- Dual voltage – The unit can be powered from either a 12 volt power source such as a car battery or a regular 110 volt outlet. Included with the unit are an 8′ AC power cord and a 5′ DC power cord so you have the necessary cables required.
- The plastic side handles aren’t as robust as we’d like as they have a tendency to sometimes come off when you lift the unit. However, the instructions advise to only use the handles when the cooler is empty.
- The appliance can’t be used as both a freezer and refrigerator simultaneously.
Guarantee: 1-year warranty.
