Here’s a common question we get from customers that are considering buying a model from this popular range: “What are the differences between the Down Under Series I and the Down Under Series II fridge ranges? And which Series do you recommend?”

Answer: Firstly;

The Series I range has 3 models:

  • 95L Dual Zone (DU95-DZ)
  • 75L Dual Zone (DU75-DZ)
  • 47L Single Zone (DU47-SZ)

The Series II range also has 3 models:

  • 95L Dual Zone (DU295-DZ)
  • 80L Dual Zone (DU280-DZ)
  • 65L Dual Zone - with removable divider for optional single zone operation (DU265-DZ)

For the Series II models, you can choose your preferred lid colour: Evakool Blue, Midnight Black, or Phantom Grey. The lids are also reversible.

The Series II models are also bluetooth enabled, allowing you to control & monitor your fridge from your smartphone.

Note: the 95L model in Series I has slightly different dimensions to the 95L model in the Series II (despite having the same literage capacity). Check the individual product specifications for exact dimensions on each model.

All Evakool Down Under Fridges (both Series I and Series II) feature the world renowned Secop compressor and highly efficient roll bond evaporator systems, meaning their power draw is low even in high ambient temperatures. All 6 models have important features including; LED internal lighting, independent zone control, Eco and Max compressor speed modes, Anderson Style Plug & Play Connection, and easy-to-use digital display and control.

Importantly, all Down Under models are also manufactured on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and pass the license requirements as being officially 'Australian Made'. Overall, they are a great 12V portable fridge choice for travelling around Australia.

Secondly;

Our recommendations depend on what is important to you. If the lid colour options and Bluetooth / smartphone control feature are important to you, then you should consider a Series II model in your required size. If those features are not especially important to you, then you can save yourself some money and opt for a Series I model, which many customers do.

95 lt fridge freezer

Very happy with my purchase

Down Under II 95

27 April 2023

Excellent service. Great communication. Mine came with a small, cosmetic dent . They were more than willing to help sort it out. More than happy to buy from them again. I have saved their site as one of my favourites.

Great product, loads of room

4 February 2023

The Evakool 95L fridge/Freezer is great product, we have used this for a week off grid camping and it has loads of storage space, it does draw around 5-6 amps whilst running as a fridge only (Both sides running at 3-4 degrees) but in Eco mode, the run time is short and keeps the temperature at the setpoint. Highly Recommend this product

Q & A


  • 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 both sides be set as fridge department?

    Yes, you are right! You can set both sides as either fridge, freezer, or a combination.

  • Can we turn off one side of the fridge if we are not using it?

    Yes, the Down Under range has the potential to turn off each side individually.

  • Can a standard wine bottle fit in the fridge?

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

  • What are the differences between the Down Under Series I and the Down Under Series II fridge ranges?

    The Series I range has 3 models:

    • 95L Dual Zone (DU95-DZ)
    • 75L Dual Zone (DU75-DZ)
    • 47L Single Zone (DU47-SZ)

    The Series II range also has 3 models:

    • 95L Dual Zone (DU295-DZ)
    • 80L Dual Zone (DU280-DZ)
    • 65L Dual Zone - with removable divider for optional single zone operation (DU265-DZ)

          For the Series II models, you can choose your preferred lid colour: EvaKool Blue, Midnight Black, or Phantom Grey. The lids are also reversible.

         The Series II models are also bluetooth enabled, allowing you to control & monitor your fridge from your smartphone.

        Note: the 95L model in Series I has slightly different dimensions to the 95L model in the Series II (despite having the same literage capacity). Check the individual product specifications for exact dimensions on each model.
