From thermoelectric coolers to a compressor fridge/freezer, 12V car fridge and freezers to outdoor fridge and freezers – your fridge and freezer is as individual as you are! In order to find the best fridge and freezer for you, your car and your everyday travelling needs, here are some key things to consider before purchasing a portable fridge and freezer.
The most common cooling technologies are: compressor, thermoelectric and absorption fridge/freezers. Compressor fridge and freezers are very powerful and can provide an excellent cooling performance, even at extremely high ambient temperatures. Thermoelectric coolers are lightweight and not only cool – they can heat too! Absorption fridge and freezers operate on gas power and work wherever you are, independently of the availability of electricity.
An important aspect to consider is whether you need a fridge and freezer that keeps, cools or freezes. A compressor fridge/freezer has the power to freeze regardless of the ambient temperature, while an absorption fridge and freezer can cool contents depending on the ambient temperature. A thermoelectric cooler keeps contents cool, rather than cools them itself. It's therefore necessary to pre-cool items before placing them inside a thermoelectric cooler.
Pick an electric fridge and freezer according to the ambient temperature. If you want to be able to keep your ice cream frozen in extreme heat, you should look into a compressor fridge and freezer. If you are looking for an electric fridge and freezer for use in cooler climates, a thermoelectric cooler which cools up to 20°C below the ambient temperature should be sufficient.
A 12 V electric car fridge and freezer is engineered to run on the 12 V cigarette lighter plug during your road trip to keep food and beverages cold or warm. It's designed to be used while travelling and can easily fit in your car. The best electric fridge and freezer for your car trip is a thermoelectric cooler. With a thermoelectric car cooler you can bring along snacks, food and drinks from home instead of buying them on the road. It is lightweight and has a large storage volume while being small and space-saving compared to other electric fridge and freezers. A 12 V fridge and freezer is the ideal product for car travelling to save you time and money. We have 12 V fridge and freezers, including thermoelectric fridge and freezers in a wide range of sizes and prices.
The compressor cooler maintains cold or freezing temperatures inside, even on the hottest days. This electric fridge and freezer is ideal for mobile use, on your RV, your boat trip and even for barbecues at home, where a compressor fridge and freezer can be connected to mains power and provide temporary additional storage for food and beverages. An advantage of compressor fridge and freezers over other types of electrical fridge and freezers is that they offer more than portable refrigeration alone, they can also operate as a portable freezer! Deep-freeze using 12/24V DC and 100-250 volts AC – compressor fridge and freezers are even solar compatible! As one of the most high-tech electric fridge and freezers on the market, our CFX range can be temperature controlled via its WiFi-app!
