The traditional camping cooler with ice has made way for the new kid in town–the 12-volt refrigerator. Many campers who once filled coolers with ice to keep food and drinks cold are anxious to ditch the soggy mess of floating food for the cool, dry experience mini car fridge 12v offer. Let’s find out why they’ve become so popular.
What Is a 12v Portable Refrigerator?
A 12v portable refrigerator works similarly to your home refrigerator, but 12v refrigerators are far smaller than your home fridge, and they’re capable of running on 12-volt DC power.
This means that you can plug a 12v portable camping refrigerator into a DC port inside a vehicle (commonly referred to as a “cigarette lighter” port) and take its power from the car’s engine battery.
These refrigerators can also run off a portable charger like a lithium battery pack or a “solar generator,” and they’re very efficient. Most sip rather than chug power, making them reasonable for travel-related applications. You can plug them into a car’s DC charging port for a long road trip. Or you can use them in camping car freezer for extended periods, running on a solar-powered battery while boondocking off the grid.
