The ideal compact fridge for use in trucks, RVs or boats
The Koolatron 1.7 cubic foot AC/DC Heat Pipe Fridge provides efficient and powerful cooling in a compact size. This compact fridge/cooler works on 12 Volt AC or 110 Volt AC power (both power cords are included) and uses just six amps of current when operating on your vehicle’s 12 volt power. The compact flush-back design makes it an easy fit in small spaces. This compact fridge/cooler features an adjustable temperature control, a removable shelf and an LED interior light.
The Koolatron 1.7 cubic foot AC/DC Heat Pipe Fridge does not have a compressor. It uses solid state thermoelectric heat pipe technology to cool the contents of the fridge up to 45 F or 25 C below surrounding temperature.
How does thermoelectric cooling work?
The solid state thermoelectric module acts as a heat pump to remove heat away from the fridge. The heat from the thermoelectric module is absorbed by the heat pipe, vaporizing the liquid refrigerant and rapidly moving heat away from the source, allowing for faster temperature drop. This technology has been widely used by the military, aerospace and computer industries primarily for rapid heat transfer.
