Yes, delivery is £4.99 adding to £29.99 sorry will correct the add. Still cheaper than any on ebay
Bought the other day at £29.99,

Pass mate,
What we’ve done is got one of these as our van 12v goes off with the ignition

rover.ebay.com/rov…158

So when the ignition is off this keeps the fridge on, then when we start the van it then charges this up works for us without killing our van battery
It won’t let me add to basket for delivery?

Don't think so. I have a near identical one, draws about 4 amps average, sometimes more. On a 62ah lead acid leisure battery you really don't want it dropping much below 25% capacity, so that gives you about 45ah to play with. So 10 hours tops.
Cant get it to deliver ... only in store

Interesting. Is that 20Ah at 12v? If so, it seems cheap and small. Would be interested to hear as looks a good idea.
I went for the Crivit cool-box currently available at Lidl. It is a little dearer at £39.99 but it is also has a bigger capacity of 29 litres. Most importantly, it can also be used off the mains. Mine came in handy when I staying at a hotel without a fridge in the room.

A very similar looking one is available from Aldi this week.

Can you explain that to thicko here in simple terms? what do you mean your 12v goes off the ignition?
How long would that pack keep a fridge going for and could i boil a kettle with it?

Think he means when the van is switched off, it cuts power to the 12v cigarette lighter port.

The mini jump starters come with a 12v port (usually 10a max current) so will run a mini fridge.

It isn't lead acid so it's not as destructive for the battery going under 50%, however it's 20ah. If fridge draws 4 amps the battery will be dead in 5 hours with that device, and you don't want to run the battery to empty.

And boil a kettle, the 12v ones are crap if limited to 10a as that's 120 watts, less than 1/10th of a regular kettle.

Wouldn't bother with the inverter route if it's a mains kettle. Even a cheapo 1kw kettle would need a 1500w inverter, that's over 100 amps drawn from the battery! Battery will die in minutes.

So no, in short you can't/shouldn't boil a kettle with a battery, it's a really inefficient way to burn electricity.

Get a £10 camping gas stove and a £5 camping kettle.

Wow, thank you mate, so even a TV is out of the question then? I have a MPV and wanted to do a mini camper set up & I thought i could plug in a Inverter & run all my 240v appliances off of it via an Extension Lead... the things you learn

TV doesn't use anywhere near 1000 watts.
You can buy 12v TVs. The fuse in your car cigarette lighter is probably 10amps, so if a 12v TV is less it'll work.

Smallish mains TV might use 200w so would require an inverter of 300w and ideally pure sine wave due to audio (I bought one other day, around £60). The inverter will need to connect directly to your cars battery, so if battery is located in bonnet it means cables trailing through the car.

And then a car battery doesn't like constant running down and charging, and is built to supply a very high current for a very short time, not several amps over hours, you'll need a leisure battery.

Personally I'd ditch the TV idea and get a tablet, can keep it charged up with a £2 cigarette 12v to usb adaptor.

Legend...so confusing, someone messaged saying i should get a Leisure Battery that charges when i am driving... something about a spit ? charge?? not sure what he was on about..but how much would that cost??
Are these any good for transporting frozen stuff for a couple of hours? We don't have aldi in NI so when we venture into the ROI we usually hit aldi. But we cant buy any of their frozen stuff on offer, pizzas and the likes, because it would be defrosted by the time we got home.
Thanks op, seems a good price for 24ltr size
Just wondering how this compares to the little travel fridges you can get? I have to refrigerate medication if travelling and many hotels now don't provide in room fridges. The little travel fridges I have had blow car fuses and the plugs overheat so looking for a better alternative.

Was it the small one that holds 12 cans?
No - its this one from Argos - 4 Litre Black Mini Travel Fridge by Cristal122/5516s
I have one of these on my boat, it's excellent, although I paid £59 from shamazon for it! And still good for that price, had it a few years now. Its not a fridge, it's a cool box, so isn't efficient to make room temperature stuff cold, but we freeze a bottle of water when we go out, put it inside with our meats and salads etc and it's fine, we run it during the day with solar panels or boat engine on, normally turn off over night due to the noise of its fan and the power consumption. It keeps frozen water icy for 2-3 days, and has been fine for cold foods for week long trips. The prices have been dropping lately first one I bought was £59, then bought a spare last year for £39

Ordered on Sunday, delivered Tuesday. All setup now, see how good it is on my 600 mile journey on Friday
Received mine yesterday seems ok for the price! What is weird about it is you have to unplug it to open the box!?!? You can't keep it plugged in! Seems very annoying! My brother has one from Aldi which is £10 more but better quality & 3 year warranty
Seems to be collection only. Oh well.
