All Cool Box Discounts, Offers and Sale - September 2018
Install a split charge relay kit (£40) and a leisure battery (£70) to your vehicle and go camping off grid, that’s what I’ve just done, it was easy. You can charge your phone and usb charged lights too
Looks very similar to the Amazon basics one which is £51 (currently comes in and out of stock). The Amazon one is slightly smaller but holds an extra 2 litres (26 in total) and is a higher energy class at A+++ Not saying that this isn't a good deal, more a fair price and just giving other options :)
I'd do a search for reviews - like I have just done - as apparently they are not built very well.
Bought this recently, not sure what price but well worth it, quality product
cool price 8)
Thanks OP. Ordered
Went to New Malden Extra.... Nada. Gutted. Anyone know where else I can land this?
Got one today from Tesco Stockton On Tees. It was still priced at £120. Asked for price check and walked away with it at £60. Well pleased.
Just picked one up at Tesco Hammersmith today (didn’t see any more out but may be worth a call as they are big). Was £120 on Monday but eventually went down to £60.
Anyone know if these are still retailing at £60 and are in stock in Tesco?
Has anyone seen one recently in store in the Yorkshire area?
If you're at an actual campsite, many have freezers for ice packs and we rotate them round daily, if we're not using electric hook up (with 12v to mains converter). Otherwise if a just sort weekend I pre-chill the box and freeze meet etc. for the next day plus some packs and just plug it in the car on way there and lasts fine. Came back yesterday, no freezer at site for packs, no hook up and still had some milk left suitable for tea last night.
If you have an Aldi near by they were doing them recently for 39.99 but 240v and 12v included plus 3yr warranty. Our local sold out but next one had loads still. Just used it at the weekend too and it was very good.
Careful, it will need to be about 5 amp & there's lots on Amazon with much lower ratings.
OOS online ...... expire ?
If that power is correct at 46w then it could potentially drain a car battery in around 10 hours, depending on ambient temp obviously. So I'd imagine one overnight shouldn't be too much of an issue.
Seems to be collection only. Oh well.
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 :/
Ordered on Sunday, delivered Tuesday. All setup now, see how good it is on my 600 mile journey on Friday
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
No - its this one from Argos - 4 Litre Black Mini Travel Fridge by Cristal122/5516s
why is there beer still in there on sunday :o
If you look at the photo and read the description you can see that it consists of a box that plugs into your 12V cigarette lighter socket which then has an output cable with a 12V cigarette socket on it. The idea being you plug your fridge into the output socket, or in their photo they have the 5V USB adaptor already plugged into the socket, but that doesn't stop you removing the included 5V USB adaptor and just using the 12V supply for your fridge instead. I quote the amazon description: "The 12/24 Volt DC power outlet and USB port is perfect for charging all your gadgets and devices. The unit has been designed to suspend power to your accessories when the battery voltage drops and this is shown by the LED light indicators. The extra-long power cord means that it can be used all around the car." If it helps to clarify the photo, here is an alternative on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Battery-Guard-With-Twin-USB-12V/163131340051?epid=1337426029&hash=item25fb62b513:g:i~kAAOSw5cBa0Kvd but it's probably some chinese knockoff..... :D
Hmm ... thanks. It says it charges USB devices so presumably won't with for a cool box like this which requires access to the very same 12v output the adaptor uses?
i bought one last year and onl;y cost around £42 dont see where the deal is as newer model but more expensive
a quick google and this battery guard for under a tenner is probably what you want: https://www.amazon.co.uk/POLCO-POWER-POLC34-Battery-Socket/dp/B00D8Z8C2W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1530620108&sr=8-1&keywords=Battery+Guard+lighter+socket They work by monitoring the voltage and switching off the connection when the voltage drops to a selected number, as the lower the charge in the battery the lower the voltage output
Mine arrived yesterday, also without coolbox (annoyed) I notice, too, the Amazon listing has changed to just the bottle. I got onto live chat to complain and received a partial refund (£10 refunded! A pretty decent gesture and a decent champagne for £10, just a shame about the coolbox)
Got mine as well today & no coolbox. Will be messaging them soon! (mad)
Expired plus no coolbox on receipt - complain and Amazon will reimburse something. If not to your liking return and buy champs from Aldi.
Oh no! Mine is due soon as Amazon took payment today.
This finally came today, no coolbox as advertised :( Amazon did pay partial refund though
True! Saw them last Saturday ;)
In Wilko these were £3.50
these are £6 in Boness branch
It's showing as 59 with white label in Wembley extra
Apologies should say £59, I had put the original price by mistake
so it's £59 then going on the shelf sticker not £120 like the post says?
It's £94.99 on Amazon so £120 is a little rubbish
Yes but you can get a converter for about £5-£10 - The Outwell one we have does hot & cold so twice as handy but discounts hard to find.
So that's why is never found it. I have not opened it and have kept the receipt. I see a comment saying only good of you have mains, and I have mains. So hopefully will be OK.
I was Looking the Outwell ones, they had a Outwell 24 litre one in millets. Was £56 and was only for the car.
Already posted last week but at least you never called it a fridge like the other poster. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/mobilcool-w40-camping-fridge-half-price-60-tesco-2745772?p=31539611
£120 ! seem a silly price, I think we got an outwell one for £30 <not voted>
I think I paid £6.00 a few years ago., like what wakaru says they have always been £23
They have always been around this price point - didn't find the quality that great. Better to buy the thermos ones from amazon for 20 quid for the 28 litre.
These are £10 in home bargains and Wilko have a green coloured one - same size and brand for £8!
They've always been £12 as far as I can remember. I have had one for the past 2 years. Better than nothing I suppose but not great otherwise. The lid remains in open position when being carried by the handle, which is not great. You won't find a cheaper one.
Also Morrisons have cool boxes for £10. No ideal what litre capacity they are but might save you a bit of money.
just come out of tesco in Consett and they have some at front of store on special for £12. will be nation wide id expect.
Yep... mine also arrived and I have to say that it is very good for the price. Cools down in minutes and although you can hear the fan it isn't as noisy as I expected. Absolute bargain!!!! Thank you
Mine arrived too yesterday. Cheers Op
Hot mine yesterday, bargain, cheers Oop
Whoops you're right, minds elsewhere lol, cheapest I've seen UK on Amazon www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01MXKXZHJ/ref=pd_aw_sim_sbs_107_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=NG3V7W29054P67TCF5XA. The way I sorted it was to use a cheap 12 volt 6A CCTV power supply and soldered my own in-line cigar socket which was cheap but would still void any warranty
And the description there states it does not include AC cable.
Cool cool box. Hot.
voted Cold, I need more alcohol not less :)
Updated dimensions and capacity :)
No I don't think so, you can close the lid, just put less ice and alcohol inside, problem solved :)
I don't think they are as deep as one would assume. I have looked at them before and basically in use they need the lid off and the lid is only for when empty.
Same here. Highly recommend the silver-backed bubble wrap available at Wickes etc. Cheaper quality than Coleman etc. but for this price it does the job! No drain plug which I think makes it easier to add your own tap rather than modify the existing setups.
Funny you should mention this, I actually bought one on sunday for that purpose. The coolbox has about 5mm of polystyrene insulation which is loose in the walls with a fairly big gap to add extra insulation but the great thing is if you look underneath there are a few Philips screws holding the inner to the outer. I just unscrewed them and lifted the inner out and added an extra load of insulation (carpet underlay and silver cooking foil) to the existing polystyrene. After a 90 minute mash I lost less than 1 degree.
you lot are so lazy! Just walk from the garden to get a beer from the fridge :)
Got one and it's not very well insulated
For £20 it might be worth a punt.
Bought one from Aldi last year for £20 ish . Wait till the summer, they get em in every year
crud beer but a good deal if you like it!
Agree Bargain if you like it Heat Giving
