About this deal

I would be getting it down to temperature before plugging in with the icepacks - it says it can get down to ambient -18 but in an indium grey van in the sun that could still be warm. We currently deliver to following countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. In our opinion, no electric cooler combines greater simplicity, affordability, and efficiency than the Outdoor Revolution Eco Deep Extreme. Peltier/Thermoelectric coolboxes have their place, but come with a few major disadvantages, they are VERY power hungry often drawing 6-8 amps at 12v, which makes them VERY ineffient cooling devices, because they are so power hungry many have a 'battery saver' feature which brings it's own problems, usually the unit will only run when connected to a vehicle with it's engine running or a leisure battery on charge, a straight 12v battery doesn't have high enough voltage to overcome the battery saver trip out level. It's only when you read the instructions that it says it keeps things cool and does not refrigerate.

It will operate from the 12V cigarette lighter of your car or campervan and comes with the requisite lead. The cooler can be easily switched between hot and cold settings, making it perfect for keeping your cold drinks icy cold or maintaining the temperature of hot food. Plus, you can happily have it plugged in to the starter 12v whilst driving to your destination as it’ll be driven by the alternator.So something around the 100-150W mark should be plenty to just top up your leisure battery with the coolbox attached. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). You're better off rotating cool blocks or 2litre bottles of water in the campsite freezer, I've been doing this very successfully on scout camps for 20 years. That said, it's a Peltier/Thermoelectric cooling device and over and above any sales pitch figures, that has limits imposed by the technology itself, Peltier/Thermoelectric technology generally can only cool to 16 degrees C below ambient, the very best claim 18 degrees C below ambient. There will be some products that are amazing quality and packed full of additional features or specifications, but do take the time to really get an idea if you need that level of quality or if your budget and needs mean you should get something else.

Yes we have had good success camping in Italy with a religious routine of changing ice packs twice daily.Their plus point is they can extend the life of Ice Packs quite considerably, as they to a degree compensate for the natural warming effect of ambient temps on the cool box. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. e. like one you would use at home in your kitchen) is the speed, controllability and power of the cooling on offer.

There’s plenty of room for 2L drinks bottles and an adjustable power switch, making it an ideal product for camping adventures. Pretty decent, digital control and will even go to -18C, which came in handy when I was defrosting the freezer.You can then quickly add up the amps you are using at any one time and make sure you don't overload the supply which on most campsites is a total of 10amps or on some campsites 16amps.
