    Thanks for the amazing deal, OP, have a great day!

  •  

    Anyone know internal and external dimenaions, warranty, voltage cutoff? Googled it and only hit was bigw as expected. Is it a clone of something?

  •  

    yeah I'm keen to know as well cause its a cracking price for a fridge.

    That looks near identical to my Stirling fridge from Aldi which hasn't missed a beat… and is $150 cheaper than I paid

    •  

      That looks near identical to my Stirling fridge from Aldi

      Possibly is identical, one of those items all made in same factory to identical specs, then different brand labels put on later.
      I purchased TV years ago from aldi, returned it to exchange due to fault, given same tv exactly, but different brand label.

  •  

    Apparently the compressor is a SECOP (DANFOSS) and the fridges campmaster brand are a rebadged snowmaster which is a reputable south african brand,

    the compressors are quite good for the money.

    warranty?

        Just bought one with a wish giftcard I bought a few days ago. Have received an order confirmation.

      •  

        I have just bought one using gift cards - does that mean it won't be honoured? - I always have at least $500 worth of gift cards on hand ;)

    Not sure who the original manufacturer is (Primus?), however it also manifests as:
    Waeco CF40
    Adventure Kings 45L camping fridge
    Aldi 40L

    TL;DR - good product for the money. Keep at least 12.0 volts to it with a decent connection and it should last a long time.

      Change the sticker to Adventure Kings, and you straight away gain 5L in capacity!

      • +1 vote

        Adventure Kings does look different.
        Aldi looks the same however.
        Is this one 240V like the Aldi one?

    Thanks OP, picked one up. Even better with another 10% off with Staff Discount :)

    Thanks OP, perfect timing, picked one up

  •  

    Wifes Tucson has a 12v in the back of the vehicle, would this be an overkill for it? Would just use it for day trips or times when we get groceries.

    I already had 3 working portable 12v fridges. A Bushman, A Sidewinder and a waeco 20L.. Now I have another. I cant seem to stop. I need to go to fridges anonymous.

  •  

    Geeeeeze that's cheap. I paid about double for the aldi version.

  •  

    Great deal! Was looking at a larger fridge but can't pass this one up at this price. Thanks OP

  •  

    How can I use this at home?

    • +1 vote

      There should also be a AC 240V power cord to be plugged into main power point.

    •  

      If you want something for home, can easy find a bar fridge for $50 or less on gumtree. I even see plenty of full size fridges for free, or about $50 on gumtree. It's a bulky item and hard to sell, so it's certainly a buyers market IMO.

      • +1 vote

        All true but that's not the point. It's always a great benefit to be able to chill the fridge at home before loading it with food.

        For those with a fridge powered by 12v only, you might like to buy a 240v AC to 12v DC transformer.

        • +2 votes

          That's the recommended way to use the fridge to make sure it is cold before you place it in the car and start driving.
          Another good idea is to use a towel if its only half full. Place the towel on your food and it stops bulk hot air entering your fridge every time you open it.

    Just got one.

    Plan to get another if my wish card ever comes through. If it doesn't come in time i will see if they can refund me the price in store, then repurchase with my wish gift card.

    •  

      these prices are online only which means they scan at $500 inshore

    •  

      Those bloody things take ages.

      •  

        yep still waiting. now i have a 249 card that i will struggle to use…

        had to order as it was running out of stock around me, now SA wide mostly gone.

        •  

          I did the same. However my receipt came through but no gift card yet. I actually noticed the gift card website says can't currently be used online, which i'm pretty sure it didn't say earlier.

          If so i will phone woolies for a gift card refund as i bought it specifically for online use.

      great minds think alike

    Can you plug this into normal power socket as a spare fridge in the home if needed?

    •  

      same question, doesn't look like

      • +2 votes

        Looks exactly the same as the aldi one. In which case you get a 240v plug. If it doesn't come with the plug you can probably buy one for a few bucks.

          I've just found a 40L campmaster online that someone is selling and it defo has 240V.

          It's also the same as the ironman 40L one and again it also has 240V

  •  

    Do you think this is a good idea to have in a Mazda 3 for after those long bush walks? Will it just be a normal cigarette lighter power source?

    • +4 votes

      With any car fridge/freezer best to be running separate solar/deep cycle battery system.

      • +1 vote

        ^ This. Also, maybe connect phone charger to each socket in the car, see if/what ones stay alive while car off.

        A legend of a mate lent me his 4WD and full setup. He set the waeco temp dial exactly, said don’t mess with it. I forgot*, and woke up to a flat battery. TWICE.

        *46deg, fridge was struggling.

        •  

          I think maybe I'll turn it off when we're gone, i'm sure it will still stay cold after a couple of hours in there. After pay makes this SO worth it, got one now. Cheers OP, Yoga and Bladerunner

        •  

          Most waeco's have a low voltage setting which should stop this happening.

    •  

      Depends how long the bushwalk is and whether you keep the fridge powered while you are on the bushwalk and how hot it is outside.

    •  

      Hi Mate,
      It will be ok, I'm pretty sure that Mazda 3's turns off its power to the cabin when the engine is not running.
      So the fridge will not run if the car is not running. It will only turn on when you put the key in the ignition.
      (either way, I recommend that you unplug it as these fridges require a few amps to start off which may be an issue on an old battery)
      So forgetting to unplug it is not an issue.

    aldi have their generic deep cycle car batteries on clearance for 59.99 now so if you don't want to drain your car battery i suppose you could run it off that in the boot.

    combined with a battery charger when you get to mains, charge it up at campsites

    Cheers OP. Good find.
    Do the Waeco covers fit these?

  •  

    Thanks, OP! Bought one :)

  •  

    Thanks OP. Just received the Big W Frenzy email and saw this too. Couldn’t choose delivery for my postcode in Sydney so had to choose pick up. Oh well, least I managed to grab one.

  •  

    Had it in my cart and then made the mistake of stuffing around trying to connect my rewards card to my Big W account, kept failing for no reason, and now there's no stock in any of my locals.

  •  

    Decided to buy a second one but looks like all gone in VIC…

  •  

    No longer available for delivery…. stocks are low.
    Glad I got in, thanks OP.

      That was the greatest day ever! Only ran out a couple months back!
      Bought this too…hopefully half as good a deal 😊

    "Unfortunately there are no BIG W Stores with stock of this item within 2000 kms of your location."

    •  

      So what? Apparently the purchase is only available online, but I cannot select the online store(yes, I know).

      They should have had more stock. Bait advertising perhaps?
