35L Two Way Absorption Fridge 12v/240v
This 35 litre comes complete with a cigarette lighter type 12v plug and UK spec 3-pin plug for mains use. This fridge is shallower than most compressor fridges such as the popular Waeco CR50 fridges, at only 54cm deep, allowing it to be built into a narrow camping unit, so allowing for a 3/4 width bed, without the fridge needing to protrude into the living space.
This fridge is small enough to replace an older 3 Way fridge, commonly fitted in many older Camper Vans. It comes with two moveable shelves allowing you to get a full height wine bottle easily standing up, or it is wider enough to lay a bottle down.
Comparing an Absorption Fridge with a Compressor Fridge
This fridge works in the same way as a traditional 3 Way fridge, (but without the gas heater) by heating a coiled evaporator loop on the rear of the fridge, to pull the heat out of the fridge, as opposed to using a compressor to produce the cooling effect. These cost effective fridges do use more power than a compressor fridge, so if you want to park up and go off grid for a few days, without mains hook up, or Solar power, you are better looking at the more costly compressor fridges. But for the occasional weekend trip, or if you have mains hook up, then these fridges can't be beaten for value, at less than half the price of a compressor fridge.
As a quick example, these fridges pull up to 6.25 amps per hour on 12v, so if you have a 120AH leisure battery, you could run this fridge for almost 20 hours before draining the battery. But if you have an overnight stop and then travel on, you will be recharging the battery ready for your next stopover.

IMPORTANT: Please note that before every outing, the appliance should be run on mains operation to operating temperature. Once this is done, you can operate the fridge off your 12v battery for the duration of your journey. This will maintain the pre-achieved temperature until you arrive at your destination when you can then revert to a 220/240v supply, where available. Please note that the Interior Light does not operate on 12v power.
