Best Portable Fridges / Freezers

Portable fridges and freezers are an ideal way to keep things cool when you're on the move, and finding the right one can make or break your trip. Before deciding which fridge/freezer to buy, you should ask yourself how often you're likely to use it, if you need both refrigeration and freezing capabilities, and how big you'll need your product to be.

Read More...

Typically, portable fridge/freezers can run off your car's 12-volt electrical system and can be connected to mains electricity.

A dedicated fridge + freezer combo are products that have two separate sections: one dedicated fridge, and another dedicated freezer. The sections work independently of one another, and can be changed to suit your specific needs.

Dual zone fridge + freezer means the product has two separate sections, and you can decide whether they work as a fridge or freezer. Some products have one compartment, and the fridge/freezer effect is typically achieved by the bottom being colder.

Which of these is best for you will depend on your specific fridge/freezing needs. For example, a longer trip may require more dedicated freezing space. A capacity of 40-50 litres is suitable for a couple , while a family would need 70 litres or more. Vehicle size and space may also factor in, as fridges range greatly in terms of weight and dimensions so check where there's space to store the fridge in your car. Consider also how long you'll be using it for and if you'll be able to restock on your trip.

If you want to bring a touch of modern convenience to your trip, there are even fridges that can be controlled and monitored from your phone.
