Evakool Down Under 47 Litre Single Zone Fridge / Freezer


Take your portable fridge/freezer to the next level with EvaKool’s legendary Down Under Series.  This fridge/freezer is seriously all about adventure, whether you’re camping with your family, 4X4 driving in the desert or having a weekend BBQ with your mates. Manufactured locally on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, the Down Under Series is  #IconicallyAustralian. Featuring a world renowned Secop compressor and highly efficient roll bond evaporator system, the Down Under Series is the ultimate portable fridge/freezer for your next adventure.

Evakool's goal for the Down Under Series was to create a highly efficient 12V refrigeration system, and that begun with a Secop compressor. Previously known as Danfoss, the Secop compressors are a German designed and engineered product and is the best compressor on the market. Not only does the Secop increase efficiency, its quality will see it through its days - that's why they back it with a 5 year warranty!

Evakool utilises a rollbond evaporator system rather than a copper pipe evaporator system for a multitude of reasons. The rollbond system allows for better heat transfer by having direct contact to the heat source, as well as better heat absorption due to a larger surface area. This system has proven to have higher efficiency rates due to its quality, which also helps to ensure a longer lifespan for the fridge freezer.

Evakool has utilised an air cooled condenser system due to a 30% increased efficiency in comparison to a static condenser system. The air cooled condenser is produced from high quality copper and aluminum that has proven to be more beneficial in the extraction and removal of heat during the condensing process. This system in conjunction with the Secop compressor and rollbond evaporator increases the overall functionality of the refrigeration system and ultimately lowers power consumption.

Good old school fridge 47ltr

By: on 28 October 2021

It a very nice single zone fridge freezer with a steel case that fits full sized drink containers with ease, it's very quiet and smooth running fridge that has two power modes that will cycle at -18°c in 30°c . This 47 downunder does not have a drain plug like the bigger models in this line state, it seems that it's very good on power, and cools down quickly from off and hot 28° to 2° and cold in under 10min and cycling, then to -18° freezer and cycling in another 20min , on economy mode I've seen maximum of 65w and on Max it's 83w. But saying that even on Max and set to -18° when cycling I was seeing mostly 70w ,all of this was done at 13volts ,what I've found is that the cycling times increase when on economy mode so it takes longer to cut out then on the Max mode. The led inside of the fridge is powered up even when the fridge is switched off on the control panel, it does turn off when the lid is closed but if you leave the lid open thinking it been switched off because the panel has gone black and turned off if it's still plugged into power the led will still be on , while the fridge is on the display on the control panel does not sleep or dim so this gets a bit bright at night , the lid can go on to open from either side and to do this is only a matter of opening up all the way pull up and it comes out of the hinge holes, its a tough plastic lid like a a esky or ice chest that is strong enough to sit on, I like that the downunder line is made and assembled and tested in Queensland aust at the evakool factory on the Sunshine Coast. So for so good.

Very cool fridge, great display and low power use

  • 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.

    Some examples:

    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?

    Hi there,

    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. 

  • What are the main differences between the Down Under range compared to other Evakool Fridges?

    The Evakool Down Under series is a range of portable fridges that are assembled, commissioned and tested on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

    The main feature that stands out to the Down Under range is its capacity in the hotter environment. With its capacity to operate in up to 47°C, makes the Down Under range the best performing 12V fridge for the Australian climate.

    Additionally, as all the Evakool fridges, it comes with a Secop Compressor. The Secop compressors are the best in the market and backed with a 5 Year Warranty. 

  • Does Evakool makes their fridges in Australia?

    The Evakool Down Under and Infinity Fibreglass range assembled, commissioned and tested in Australia.

  • Can a standard wine bottle fit in the fridge?

    Yes, standard sized wine bottles can be stored inside, standing up.
