What size battery should I have to power a portable fridge?
First, you will need to determine how much power your portable fridge will consume on average per hour under certain ambient conditions; please see the Product Specification Tab of the product where we provide this information. Additionally, you will need to know the size of your battery in amp-hours.
When you have these number, you can calculate the approximate run time in hours by dividing the size of the battery by that average consumption figure.
If it is stated consumption is 1 amp per hour average, multiple that by 24 hours (equals 24 Amp hours per day).
You should understand that you never get the full amount of amp-hours from a battery. As a good rule of thumb, you should use 80% for a Lithium Battery and 50% of an AGM/GEL (lead acid) battery.
So, for a 100 Amp hours deep cycle lithium battery, we can assume 80 amp-hours of usable power.
If we are looking at a refrigerator that have an average consumption of 1 amp per hour, and it is the only appliance running from a 100 amp-hour battery. You should be able to run the refrigerator for around 80 hours before recharging is needed.
How much solar do I need to power my portable fridge?
The panel should be of a suitable size to meet requirements of the refrigerator and any other appliance running from the battery. It's best to use the solar panel to charge a battery, as opposed to running the fridge directly from the solar panel as voltage will drop if clouds come overhead for instance. The battery means your refrigerator keeps running even if the voltage output of the solar panel drops severely due to cloud cover.
A good rule of thumb to prevent inadequacies with power supply is to have a solar panel large enough to provide enough daily power to run your refrigerator and have battery storage of an extra 2/3 on hand. So, if your refrigerator (or any other appliance) will consume 30 amp-hours per day, you should have battery storage of 90 amp-hours capacity and a solar panel of around 80 watts or greater capacity to ensure you will not have problems.
It is advised to go a little higher in specification than your needs. However, a popular solar panel size to charge your batteries to run camping fridges is around 120 - 160 watts.
Will the fridge drain my car battery?
Your car starter battery will need a certain voltage level to crank over. If you are running the fridge direct from your cranking battery, most user manuals, including Dometic, recommend switching your portable fridge on to Medium or High voltage setting.
By changing this setting you are telling the fridge to cut out (stop drawing power) at a predetermined voltage level. See table below:
Example - Dometic CFX3's Voltage settings:
To avoid battery draining of your starter battery we recommend choosing the high setting.
If you are connected to a house (Auxiliary) battery then you are fine to choose the low setting.
I am considering buying a solar blanket for my camping trips - can I run my camping fridge directly from the solar blanket?
Great question! However, unfortunately no, you will not be able to run your camping fridge directly with a solar blanket.
A battery will be required to be used to provide a continuous power supply for the fridge. You will need to plug the portable fridge/freezer into the battery and plug the battery into the solar panel/blanket.
The solar panel/blanket on its own is unable to provide stable and constant power to your portable fridge/freezer, which is required to maintain your pre-set temperature.
How much ventilation do I need surrounding the fridge when it is operating?
To ensure that your portable fridge/freezer are not overheating which will result in a high power consumption that leads to poor performance and efficiency, it is important to make sure that the fridge/freezer is getting the right amount of ventilation.
We would always recommend at least a 100mm buffering perimeter around the fridge when it is being stored in an enclosure. However, many manufacturers will generally advise a 200mm buffering gap around the fridge vent for the best possible performance.
Additionally, we highly recommend to regularly clean the air inlet and outlet vent of the fridge/freezer. This will prevent dust from creating a blockage.
Why should I get my Evakool fridge marinised?
Evakool recommends marinising your fiberglass fridge if you are going to use it on a boat or around salt water. Your Evakool warranty will include protection against rust or corrosion in the motor-compartment if your fridge if marinised from new.
How does the Evakool marinising accessory work?
The Evakool marinising accessory provides a protective coating around your 12V fridge/freezer motor-compartment and contains anti rust agents to protect materials such as aluminium, copper, brass, bronze, chrome, titanium, galvanised metal and stainless steel. This is ideal for marine environments where your fridge/freezer will be exposed to salt water.
What are the main differences compared to the Evakool Infinity Fibreglass fridges compared to other models?
The Evakool Infinity Fibreglass models are assembled, commissioned and tested in Australia. They are also designed for longevity. The range is designed to last long because all parts of the fridge freezer are replaceable. Which means the fridge freezer can last a very long time.
