just ordered one ,what a bargain huh

And unless you connect well before you leave (Need the added expense of a mains charger/adapter) It will be an age getting cold.
Good price but never needed one.

Use an ordinary coolbox and put one or two x 1 ltr of orange squash in the freezer the night before and put in the coolbox along with sandwiches Etc., and drink as it defrosts. Lovely & cold.

Lasts most of the day.

Got one of these, not the same one. Don't leave on in the car all day, as we found out, they use more power than I thought and we ended up with a flat battery!

Excellent, thanks very much. Was getting ready to buy the lidl one for £10 more so I'm happy

This is quite a coincidence - I was looking for one of these yesterday to shove in the car to drive to spain.

These dont work with compressors like traditional fridges - but use peltiers which work with DC electricity to heat one side and cool the other side of the component (a small fan normally blows over the hot side to remove the heat) - so in theory these can be used with reversed polarity to keep food warm - although if the housing is not designed for this it could melt, although the temperature difference these things run on is normally 18C difference from the outside temperature.

I found one yesterday which was in a sale for I think high twenty quids with a 29 litre capacity - it was in a shop that compared the prices to similar prices elsewhere if that helps - I think it also had a mains adaptor included - which makes it cheaper than this if you want to shove it in a gite en route.

I will look to check then post it if i can find it.

That sounds great Ibiza if you can remember where it was, thanks in advance!

Buy a battery from a scrap yard and shove in a twin battery relay/split charge controller and wire it to your cigar lighter - it costs under twenty quid and an afternoon to do. Most time is spent making a secure place for the battery.

If you like working with cars - you can run your lights through relays to the second battery and it brightens the original lights as they are not sending current through the dash switches - and you can never run the battery that starts your car flat by leaving the lights on.

This sounds like a good idea:thumbsup:

Looking for one for camping so this would be ideal thanks amibees

I bought one of these about 4 years ago,exactly the same model, for use on days out and camping. It's OK, but of course it's not the same as a proper portable fridge, the thermoelectric cooler only claims to keep the temp inside about 20 degrees cooler than whatever the outside temp is. A frozen drink bottle inside certainly helps boost it at the start of the day.
Yes, I've also made the mistake of leaving it plugged into the car's electrics for hours when the engine's not running! The current drain is such that it will drain even a fairly large car battery quite quickly. In fact, the current drain if I remember correctly is about 4 amps, so there is absolutely no way that the puny mains adapter shown on the same page will get anywhere near powering it. You can buy mains adapters which are up to it, I've seen them in camping shops for about £20.

I started it as a new thread.

I saw this in Woolies on the weekend but couldn't talk the missus into needing one. I'm fairly sure it does the 'keeping things warm' bit too. Don't quote me on that.

Very handy for those picnics out and goodprice. Voted hot!

Also if you order on line and its your first order you get another 10% off

Looks like Lidl have the mains adapter included and woolies dont

Had one of these for a number of years. They are good.

But dont expect them to act like fridges.
Best to put already chilled and partially frozen (such as drinks)
Keeps them nice and cool for best part of a day.

Perfect for days out.

If I remember last year Halfords did a large selection of them and sometimes had discounts on top too.

Never worth £59 i bought one from Asda for £24 looks the same.But cheap at £20.

Had one of these and my advice is do not buy, a complete waste of money

If you think it will give fridge like performance, think again, as the instructions say
"Cools up to 18°C below ambient temperature"

So if the ambient summer temperature in your car is ?? say 50 degrees, this
little marvel will reduce to 32 degrees !

soggy sandwiches and warm drinks anyone?

As someone else said a normal coolbox with ice packs will be far better

You can use these for making ice in scotland!

[COLOR=darkred]I wonder how many of you are interested in this because it's £19.99 [/COLOR]

[COLOR=darkred]or (More likely) because it was £59.99?[/COLOR]

[COLOR=darkred]An apparant BARGAIN!! [/COLOR]

[COLOR=darkred]Till you look around and find out that they only sell for £25 - £30 anyway.[/COLOR]


Personally I would worry about something that gets hot inside my car.

There is a heater inside this thing. Be warned.

Bought one of these in last yrs sale forthe same price, very good for shopping in the summer but especially on long journeys, never had a battery flattened by it, as the cig lighter should turn off with the ignition.

This is what you need if you're looking for a mains adaptor for it:

halfords.com/web…951

- happens to be on offer at Halfords at the moment, £9 off at £17.49. I looked all over the place and couldn't find a cheaper one. There are plenty of cheap mains units about, but nothing that will give you the 5 amps needed for coolboxes.

think the lidl one has the adaptor so it would work out cheaper and its bigger

Yes, we have this adaptor and a similar coolbox

We use the coolbox when camping as a fridge. We have electric hookup, so plug it into that once we've got the tent up

Also used it in our Butlins half board chalet last year to keep milk, butter, ham and cheese in

Its not as cold as a fridge, but I've never had anything go off in it

Probably coz I've only used it in the UK :-D

HTH
nicojo

had one for camping,mostly put ice in it to add to our drinks and kept ice frozen for long enough for us to get p***ed
