      Yeah pretty much lol. We're traveling around with a camper trailer.

      •  

        How many of you? Does the fridge cater for you well or do you wish you had bigger/smaller?

        • +1 vote

          Just the two of us. It was the biggest fridge that fits in the back of my Pajero.

    can anyone comment how much power these units draw from usage..

    •  

      As per the spec sheet, its 5A. I guess this could vary depending on the conditions.

    •  

      I measured anywhere between 25Ah and 60Ah over 24 hours depending on outside temperature and fridge temperature settings.

      On Eco setting it draws 60 Watts and on Max setting 90 Watts when the compressor kicks in.

      •  

        So what size battery do you recommend for say 2-3 days use

      •  

        Hey mate I think you mean 25A/60A over 24hrs? (not 25Ah/60Ah)

        That's very good stats for a fridge this size.

        BTW do you have a cover on yours ??

        •  

          Yes got a cover on it.
          Using both compartments as a fridge at the moment which helps a lot to keep the power consumption down.

          Btw pretty sure they use Ah to express current produced or consumed or the capacity of something like e.g. a 100Ah battery.
          Amps would be the amount of electrical current flowing in circuit.
          E.g. the fridge draws 5 Amps so if it runs continuously for 1 hour it would have consumed 5Ah. Right?

          Wh or kWh would be a more accurate measurement I guess.

            @Sheepsheep: yep you are right like its says in the manual "0.3kw.h/24hrs"

            is the app any good/useful or just some bs that never gets used??

  •  

    Anyone know if the dual zones can be user set? e.g. can you make it all a freezer or all a fridge? or are you stuck with 50/50 split?

    •  

      Yes both compartments can be set individually

      •  

        Can you adjust the size of each compartment (clearly not the lids)

        •  

          No they are fixed.

    FYI have a mate with an slightly different model 50 L (CAT.NO:GH1642) and his opinion is as follows

    Pros:
    Dual zone with removable divider
    Ability to control the temperature of each zone

    Cons:
    Wall's are relatively thin = more power consumption
    More power hungry compared to a WEACO of similar size
    Louder compared to a WEACO of similar size
    Requires external AC to DC adaptor to run it from 240V outlet

    Overall : Great for the weekend warrior but not so great for long term off the grid camping

    •  

      Features:
      • 75L
      • High efficiency
      • 12/24VDC power
      • 240V mains adaptor included
      • Battery protection
      • LED internal light for easy finding of food in the dark

      don't think it requires and adaptor

      •  

        Pretty sure he just means the adapter isn't part of the unit

        •  

          if it comes with a 240v cable i'm sure it has an ac to dc converter built in?

          •  

            @Stahh: He's saying it's not, presumably it's like a laptop or xbox 360 adapter

      •  

        Stahh refer your 4th point :-)
        (I have also verified this in the instruction manual)

        To be honest its not the biggest issue but definitively a PIA (having another thing remember).
        Especially since most fridges come with 240V&12V sockets and the transformer is built in.

        •  

          There might be a good reason for it to be outside e.g if it gets hot it's better not putting that heat into the unit, but a trade off with convenience

  •  

    Just curious. How do these dual zone fridge/freezers work?

    I have a single compartment Engel with obviously 1 compressor.

    For a dual zone I assume there’s on one compressor and a thermostat/thermistor for each zone.

    How does the refrigerant flow and how do they control the 2 different temperature zones (accurately)

    Cheers

    There’s also a 95L size for just $599 also a $200 saving.
